About The #JustBeGreat Academy

#JustBeGreat Academy:

For Entrepreneurs By Entrepreneurs

#JustBeGreat Academy’s mission is to empower entrepreneurs in the metro Phoenix area and assist them in becoming self sufficient and successful in their business endeavors, by providing affordable resources and courses from experienced business owners and entrepreneurs.

Co-founder and Business Development Strategist, C. Reneé Mangum, has been a driving force in business ownership empowerment throughout the Valley and the US since 2016. Throughout her journey in developing other businesses, she saw a need for face-to-face learning environments for many entrepreneurs who either struggled with online learning systems, or simply preferred in-person interactions and a hands-on learning approach. She partnered with fellow entrepreneur, celebrity stylist and good friend, Star Campbell, to launch #JustBeGreat Academy and meet the community’s need.

#JBG Academy is designed for both new and existing business owners, who have a desire to continue their business-centered education. It is a resource center for learning new business skills, keeping up with business trends and connecting with other thriving professionals.
