For YEARS, women and femmes of color have been forced to perform.
- The way we speak
- The way we dress
- The way we wear our hair
- Hell, the way we breathe, has been politicized, scrutinized, and criticized
And it’s no different for those of us in business.
We’re told by *cough* white *cough* coaches that we need to diminish our identity to run a business.
That we should only focus on the numbers. That if we aren’t working 18-hour days, we just don’t care about ‘success’ enough
That community has NO place in our businesses
Well, I call bullshit.
A 6-month coaching program designed to help WFOC entrepreneurs (like you!) go from colonized and misaligned to liberated and revolutionary af.
And don’t let anything hold you back anymore!
Including yourself, honey.
Revolutionary Rising isn’t your
average coaching program.
- Focus on the $$$, everything else will follow
- Focus on what you need first, and everyone else second
- Follow a plug-and-play handbook & listen to me coach other people
- Blend into the background, wide reach is more important than owning your identity
- Focus on your values and your people, everything else is secondary
- The power of a strong WFOC community is unparalleled and unmatched – you can serve yourself and others deeply.
- No two humans are the same. Get 1:1 Coaching every call, so we can address your specific needs.
- Stand up tall and proud of your WFOC identity
“Embracing my story as a Mauritian immigrant was very liberating and was the key to unlocking multiple other mindset blocks.”
Gieselle’s work on decolonizing businesses spoke to me, and the transformation I experienced is more than anything I ever expected. I would highly recommend it and I would gladly do it again myself!
Sarah Osman, Wellness and Mindset Coach
“Revolutionary Rising helped me realize that my messaging was off because it was the palatable whitewashed version of myself that I had been using my entire life.”
“I feel so confident in what I’m doing and how I’m doing it and I’m so excited to help and uplift other black womxn unapologetically while still reaching my financial goals.”
Liz Walker, YouTube Strategist
The journey to decolonization isn’t easy
But I’m here to help
Hey, I’m Gieselle!
I’m a Black, American, queer, ablebodied, neurotypical, cisgender woman. I currently live on the stolen land of the Lenape tribe, which is now known as Montclair, New Jersey.
I knew that I didn’t have the option of standing on the sidelines anymore.
I was tired of being suffocated by whiteness in the entrepreneurship and personal development world. I was over capitalism stealing my rest, self-esteem, and joy.
And more importantly, I took a look outward and discovered all the incredible WOC entrepreneurs around me who were experiencing the same damned thing. I listened, watched, interacted, and fully allowed myself to be a part of the community.
Allowing myself to truly be in community with other women of color who share my values, cheerlead me, and truly see me has changed my life.
I created Revolutionary Rising with the hopes that you can experience the power of that community too.
Because what we can achieve as a community beats ANYTHING we can achieve alone.
“After the death of George Floyd, something broke open and I realized that I was whitewashing all the best things about myself, and excluding the very people I most wanted to work with.”
“Through Revolutionary Rising, I have curated a more diverse, high-quality, inclusive, and trusting set of clients. I feel I can continue to dive into this work for months to come and it will continue to impact my productivity, messaging, bank account, and general sanity.”
Jasmin Norwood, Founder and Lead Designer
“My biggest win in joining Revolutionary Rising was connecting with other WFOC in a nurturing and encouraging space. Wyte folx are not the gatekeepers of our liberation.”
“We deserve to feel nourished and in true community with people who understand our intersectionalities and love and celebrate them. This is that community.”
Olivia Howard, Transformation Coach and Energy Healer, Founder
and CEO of Olivia Howard LLC
“I had spent so much time focusing on my business that I had basically become my work and got lost in it. After Revolutionary Rising, I finally know and continue asking myself – what do I want?”
“I am unapologetic about showing up value-forward and all my clients in the last few months have been WOC (primarily Latinx, like me!). I just absolutely love Gieselle and can’t recommend her enough!”
Lissette Calveiro, Digital Consultant, Coach and Creater

“Revolutionary Rising literally made me come out of the closet and step into the light of my full identity.”
“Gieselle was able to tap into my blockages even when I couldn’t verbalize them myself. I made my first dollar in years with Revolutionary Rising and before the second month was over I had made my first thousand.”
Dalia Kinsey, Founder of Kinsey Wellness & Communications
Frequently Asked Questions
I want to make sure you’re making the BEST possible decision for yourself and your business by applying to be a part of Revolutionary Rising.
And if you’re asking questions and giving me the critical side eye, good.
It means you’re looking out for yourself, and I can’t fault that.
So, I decided to answer some questions about Revolutionary Rising that you’re probably already thinking of!
Why do I need to fill out an application?
You heard me, not just a good fit, the perfect fit.
Yeah, I’m probably leaving money on the table by not accepting everyone, but that’s not what this is about for me.
This is about making sure that I’m the right person to help you on your journey of decolonization as you grow your business, and making sure that you’re a perfect fit for our sacred community.
I'm looking for a community, but I'm nervous about being vulnerable in a group program. Is this a good fit?
When you join Revolutionary Rising, you join a family of shared experiences, support, and unequivocal acceptance. We cultivate safety by agreeing to shared community agreements in how we show up and engage with one another.
I'm white-passing or mixed race. Is this the right community for me?
How much time and energy do I need to dedicate to the program?
Between pod calls, you can expect to spend 10 minutes daily doing your custom-assigned “homework” from your pod calls, and digging into the Revolutionary Rising coursework.
I’ll be honest, reversing years of colonization, internalized capitalism, patriarchy, and generations of fuckery ain’t going to be easy. It doesn’t happen overnight, and the true magic comes from the work you do in between sessions.
But on the other side? You’ll stand tall in your truth, run a business base fueled by your soul on fire, and you’ll do it without giving in to white capitalism.
What kind of folks join Revolutionary Rising?
You’re a good fit for Revolutionary Rising if…
- You were socialized as female
- You’re a changemaker, artist, creative, or coach.
- You want to think critically about how capitalism, patriarchy, and white dominant culture impacts and impedes the way you do business
- You want to serve the black and brown communities (though that’s not a requirement of the program)
- You have a big heart
Will I get to talk every coaching call?
Will we talk about strategy in this program?
We believe that you always know what’s best for you and your business. So if you bring in a strategy topic to the community, we will support you in finding the best answer for you, but we will very rarely tell you what to do.
