About The National Black Mastermind Group

Today, Donnetta can be found guiding The National Black MasterMind Group she founded in 2015.  In May 2019, Donnetta felt her life calling was to address the lack of access to capital reported by 80% of the Black Entrepreneurial Community.  She relaunched The Black MasterMind Group, as a 501c(3) educational, coaching, development, and funding initiative which offers The Business Mastery Program – a 24-wk accelerated, intensive business program.  She calls it; “The Real Road to Success”.  Donnetta believes education, coaching, and money alone is not the answer to success, but a combination of these 3 strategies properly aligned can provide an entrepreneur with a less cumbersome Road to Success!  


The Black Master Mind Group is a global organization that consists of a National Board of Directors, an Advisory Board, one standing committee of non-board members, and various Affiliate Groups in the United States and abroad.
