About the Instructor

Pamela Barba Photo

Soulful Brand + Business Systems Consultant

Pamela Barba (she/her/ella) believes that it’s up to us to create the world we want to live in. And it starts with you owning your brilliance. (yes, you!)

She helps entrepreneurs and creators launch and scale their one-of-a-kind ideas. She is a brand strategy and business systems consultant. Her grounded advice has been featured on Forbes and on stages nationwide.

As a previously undocumented immigrant, she became an advocate for economic equity and immigrant justice after her family lost everything and migrated to the US.

After spending a lifetime in the design and entrepreneurship space she learned that safety and self-trust are key in the creation process. Now she helps marginalized folks transform their communities by launching brands, businesses, and community-driven projects.

Whatever the case wherever the wifi is connecting Pamela is on a mission to help folks start some sh*t.
