Each year new and emerging childcare business owners, as well as established child care bosses, sign up for my Childcare acceleration JumpStart programs.
Their success is our top priority.
My business was one month old when I attended in Atlanta. We're not a traditional daycare but a niche that's cash pay only. We had a great opening but I needed an explosion of growth quickly and went to the conference looking for the magical answer. What I received were instructions to stop making excuses, stop waiting for someone else to do it for me and take charge of my business. The ideas started trickling in and then FLOODING my brain! More importantly, I'm implementing those ideas and they're working! I'm so grateful for the Atlanta tour stop.
I have to confess......this was my 3rd or 4th conference(With the Dickerson) I’ve attended with hopes of learning, growing, unifying all while I continue to grow, lead and believe in and for my childcare business success. Atlanta’s tour stop has changed the scope of my LIFE! My husband attended for the 1st time and I must say that I’m so grateful to God for anointing Andrea and Kamau with the passion to help regular folks just like myself to dominate the childcare industry! My husband was always a supporter but just not my BIGGEST SUPPORTER! After we left Atlanta, he now try’s to outwork me in our childcare business. This is ALL new for me to have him right there putting in 12hr shifts with me. This is only happening because of the layout and foundation that the Dickerson's shared with us and my husband was there LIVE! Thank you Coach Andrea/Kamau! Grateful

Ladies Dive In... don't be afraid to invest in yourself and connect with other like-minded individuals. When I first went to a #Iownadaycareconference I had NO IDEA how to run my business. No lie... I could teach and care for the children blindfolded with my hands tied behind my back but conducting business, closing the deal, tracking payments, hiring staff AND TRAINING and leading them that was the stuff that kept me up at night. But Andrea Dickerson helped me get all of that together. I invested in her live events and her products on a Family Child Care Budget (hello somebody) but the outcome of that is my business is flourishing I have 2 staff members on my team that help me grow and shape my program into what I want it to be DAILY and I am growing other business ventures at the same time. I am hosting events and booking futre events that are not childcare related. So i got my whole business life together and im still a work in progress. I have met some amazing ladies that 2/3 years later we are still encouraging one another and holding each other accountable for what we do or don't do. This is how the I Own A Daycare corporation has helped me. So don't second guess dive in and see whay you can get accomplished with the help of a inspirational, Childcare Boss who lives and breathes Business AND Childcare at the same d*%n time 😄 Love U Coach thank you for your courage to step out which has caused so many others to step out as well

“My business partnership with my husband improved 100 percent in 24 hours. The coaching that I got from you was a true blessing.You made me think about things that I would have never thought of before on my own.” Most importantly, it really helped my husband and me our marriage and in our working relationship. We are developing systems to get him just as involved as me. Your husband’s testimony impacted my husband and if I didn’t get anything else out of your coaching that was the true blessing. I’m a work in progress. It feels good to finally be able to make progress!

“With Andrea’s Coaching, I Expanded From a Family home To a Childcare Center Fast!” I’m all in with Mrs. Dickerson. I’m grateful that God has put her in my life. I’ve been in the childcare industry for 2 years now I started off as a home daycare. I got into Andrea/s Design Your Life Around The Childcare Business You Love Course and now I will be opening my doors to my childcare facility on 7/1/15. Coming from the medical field knew nothing about childcare. Until I came across Mrs. Dickerson. She was like heaven sent. I invested in myself and in my vision of having a super successful childcare business.

“I Attended Andrea’s Tour Stop and Left With Business Changing Ideas!” During your AndreaIgnitesChildcare.com Tour In Florida, we implemented your VIP idea for parents and took our childcare business to another level. We leveled up our customer service and created the VIP program you taught us about. Now, parents pay us on time, our VIP parents participate in our Childcare activities and supports our teachers! Thanks Andrea for all your ideas. They rock and so do you.
Coach Andrea words cannot express how you and Coach Kamau have blessed me with your gifts. You are the reason why my book, 21 Days of Prayer was resurrected and a blessing to the nation. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Coach Andrea, You’ve encouraged me to continue to think BIG! With that encouragement I was able to open and run 2 locations in the summer, client retention is at an all-time high and new parents are calling every day!
I have been a family childcare provider for too many years now. I also felt like there has got to be more to this. I’m not satisfied being just the provider in her home. I know others with centers but that still wasn’t enough. Without anyone modeling what that “thing” is, I was ready to give up. But one day, I found this very pretty lady on youtube. She spoke with a true heart for the business, was very enthusiastic, positive, motivated and I could feel the presence of Christ in her life. I was sold! Coach, you have helped pull me out of a pit of darkness. I have reconnected with my calling that God has placed in my life. I now know what that “thing” is now. I’m back to creating systems, thinking like a founder and not a worker, and believing in myself. I’m still a long way from where I want to be and working hard to get there. I thank God for you and pray that He continues to bless you and all who he places in your life. You helped me to okay with wanting more! And realizing we CAN touch the lives of children and their families while generating enough coins to live a lifestyle that we deserve.
You have shown me even though you may fail God has bigger plans get back up and try again ☺️ and that Children and their families deserve nothing but the best in childcare meaning: organization learning environment etc
Well, I lost most of my children in 2013 and I had no idea how to really advertise or market so I flew out to Build It Big and I was so inspired to get those 13 kids back. I bought your book and I read it on the plane. It only took me 4 months to fill my place back up and it’s been full since. I even have a waiting list now. I was motivated to get grants, to teach and to mentor others (for a fee). Now I have my teaching credential and I charge what I am worth based on my education and 38 years of experience. I’m so grateful to have found you and your husband.
This is my testimony I can go on and on but you said to keep it short and simple. The word inspire is an understatement you are an angel sent to do great things for childcare bosses like myself. I have been doing Child Care for 20+ years and I just knew I had it all I knew it all NOPE….when I was introduced to Andrea she changed my LIFE!!!! I have found my niche in this business as a behavioral specialist and finding my niche was what I was missing all these years. Andrea has opened my eyes to things that I would have never dreamed of trying and they all WORKED so with that being said not only do you inspire me you lift me up every day and remind me that my vision is my future and if I Dream Big anything is possible so I wanna say thank you thank you thank you. #COACHOFTHEYEAR❤️
