Hi, I'm Carissa

I’m a 2nd generation Filipina American daughter of immigrants and the first in my family and friends to become an entrepreneur.

I created CONSCIOUSXCHANGE because I couldn't find a BIPOC coach or a business community of BIPOC entrepreneurs, especially ones that centered my values as a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Justice, & Belonging professional.

I wanted to be with people who understand what it's like to navigate running a business as a person of color with all the generational barriers as a immigrant or child of immigrants, and without anyone in their social circles to show them the ropes.

So in true Carissa fashion, when you can't find what you are looking for, you build it yourself.

Since starting my business, I've become a sought after public speaker charging 5-figures for my speaking engagements having spoken at organizations such as Calendly and Eventbrite.

Not seeing a lot of entrepreneurs who look like me and a need for more BIPOC coaches and consultants to share their stories and offer support from their lived experiences, I now teach other BIPOC entrepreneurs how to also start, grow, and scale their own businesses to $100k and beyond.

As a former Director of Operations as well as a certified Emotional Intelligence (EQ) coach, my experience spans across both the operations and human sides of business.

With my consulting hat, I help my clients build spreadsheets, systems, tools, and processes to help them run their businesses more smoothly. With my coaching hat, I also help my clients level up their mindset with EQ tools and practices to help them achieve their big audacious business and life goals.

I truly believe entrepreneurship is the path to liberation and my mission is help more BIPOC entrepreneurs design and create their own liberatory futures through building their own businesses.

Excited to chat with you and help you get to the next step in your business!
