The 5 P's for Outwitting this Pandemic will be led by Tisha Hammond, The Small Business Cheerleader.


Imagine retiring at the age of 41. Taking lessons learned from a 21-year career in law enforcement and civil rights advocacy, Tisha Hammond found herself taking the leap in April 2018 to work for herself full-time. She works successfully with entrepreneurs and executives who are prepared to transition from W-2 wages to unlimited income opportunities.

Tisha Hammond is a speaker, facilitator and author with a knack for tapping into human capital.  She is an avid storyteller and lends her voice on the Board of Directors at the Society for the Re-institutionalization of Storytelling. Some know this as The Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers. Tisha’s belief is that the business community thrives when collaboration and cooperation meet and when entrepreneurs amplify their voices. She is known best for her "Pep Talk."

Her company, Ascent Small Business Promotion, LLC, is the marketplace for those who desire to influence their own personal economy and impact their community through business ownership. Started in January 2015, as an A-Z business development source, the company provides an online training portal for entrepreneurs, in-person and virtual business consulting, creative content for media communication and speaking/storytelling services. 

If Broadway called today, Tisha Hammond would take flight to center stage. Until then, you can find Tisha Hammond on stages and in pages discussing economic empowerment, shifting gears from Employee to Employer, and the art of influencing legislators and decision-makers. In between stage and online video appearances, Tisha is a contributing writer for Career Mastered Magazine and small business columnist for Local Business News. There's a special place in her heart for women entrepreneurs and she serves them as the Member Services Director on the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Greater Detroit Chapter. A servant leader, Tisha mentors the next generation of young entrepreneurs through Executive Committee work on the NAWBO/EXCEL Board of Trustees. Tisha Hammond is the author of Daily Devotional for Entrepreneurs: Your Season to Grow. She is also the 2020 Warrior Award Winner, an honor presented to the Top 10 Michigan Women Business Owners.

Offstage, Tisha enjoys playing muse for her husband Ken (a professional photographer) and celebrating family time over a game of Phase 10. Tisha is a Hamilton: An American Musical fanatic and requires frequent forgiveness for breaking out in random show tunes.
