Brandy Adamson – Black Women Making History (7594 hits)

When most children are asked what they want to be when they grow up, the responses include "fireman," "teacher," "attorney," "football player" and "doctor." When I was asked the question, my immediate response was "The Boss." At the time, I wasn't clear of what I wanted to be the "boss."

As I grew up, my desire to help others drew me toward philanthropy and my work in the non-profit sector. While climbing the corporate ladder, I became the corporate liaison with several community agencies. As my work with those agencies continued, my desire to help them improve in their systems processes and operations, led me to begin consulting with various organizations across the USA. In my work with these organizations, my goal is to educate and empower the leaders, not keep them reliant upon others for their survival.

As I embarked on my journey of full entrepreneurship, I knew that my business must empower and educate. I initially began consulting in the areas of business development, branding and resource development. I then established ALIVE Magazine ( As the business grew, I searched for ways in which my organization would increase its philanthropic endeavors. From that search, The Savane Group ( was established.
