Start & Scale A Successful Business Today!

My own success in business often drives questions from friends, veterans and military families as they seek to start and/or grow their own profitable business.

As an ARMY Veteran myself, I have chased my own hobbies and interests, using them to start and launch my own journey as a veteran entrepreneur.

Now I help clients of all kinds to start their own businesses, both through the tips & advice shared in my Founder’s Podcast as well as through my Exclusive Visibility and Business Coaching Services.

If you have an idea you would like to turn into reality or a passion that you would like to pursue, you too can become a thriving entrepreneur.

In the Founder’s Podcast I not only share my own knowledge, but I also interview other successful business owners.

Are you ready to be an entrepreneur?

Entrepreneurs are confident, positive, creative, resourceful, and resilient people who are faced with a problem, they create solutions.

If this sounds like you, tune in to Founders Time to learn more and start your journey!

What do people say?

Testimonials from the folks who changed their lives – for better.

I’m not like most girls. I am a Female Veteran! Niurka’s work to recognize Female Veterans as the unique group we are has intrigued me. I thought I was going to always have to take a back seat to the Men in the room when anything Military is brought up. That’s right, when Vets were asked to stand up, the Speaker had a complete lapse on gender neutral terms and went straight to Thanking our “Men” for being brave soldiers. So far I’ve been on a Fishing with America’s Finest outing organized by Niurka which got me off the COVID Couch and out into the Everglades. I am the proud recipient of an AmorUmbrella as well. Every time it rains and I pull out my Heart Shaped Amor Umbrella, I know my female soldiers not only have my back, they have my head. THAT is truly heartwarming. THAT is truly comradery. Angeline Gullo, USAF, Sgt. 1987-91, CTANG, 1991-94

Angelica Gullo
“Being a guest on Founders Time was a great experience. Niurka had great questions and she made the experience feel as if it was just the two of us having a casual conversation. Being a guest could have been stressful thinking about how many people will watch or listen. She has a way of making you feel comfortable to the point you forget its recording. You can tell she has lots of experiences and brings all of it to the table on her podcast!”
