About Sheryl Grant

Sheryl Grant helps executives, entrepreneurs, and ambitious women (especially Black-Women and Women of Color) to achieve more! Sheryl is the Founder and CEO of SGI; an award-winning social enterprise focused on transformation from the inside out with its flagship company, FIT for Business.

After winning the Ms. Olympia international fitness competition at the age of 55, Sheryl realized that transforming her body began with transforming her mind. She has since developed and launched a proprietary program, FIT for Business, that helps leaders get more out of their business, career, and life.

The Market

FIT for Life Products will serve as a transformational leadership tool in developing the next generation of the diverse and growing markets of black women, women of color, and underserved communities.

For Individuals / Entrepreneurs

Women of Color, black women specifically, are breaking more barriers than ever before…

  • Women of Color (WoC) are the fastest-growing group in higher education, receiving nearly 60% of postsecondary degrees.
  • Black Women, however, owe 22% more in student debt than non-Black Women and are less likely to be hired or promoted.
  • Women of Color account for 89% of net new women-owned businesses per day (1,800)
  • From 2014 to 2020, Women-owned businesses grew by 21%, firms owned by WoC grew by 43% while African American women-owned firms grew by 50%
  • While white women-owned businesses make an average of 108,000, WoC-ownedbusinesses earn $64,000, while Black Women-owned businesses earn $24,000With the rise of digital learning solutions and the dominance of ‘holistic wellness’ in consumer markets, women are looking for a solution that addresses their goals for professional, entrepreneurial, AND personal growth (mind, body, and spirit).

The Problem

With individuals, professionals, and entrepreneurs increasingly turning away from traditional institutional learning and towards online learning solutions, women and people of color face increased barriers to finding the trustworthy resources and networking opportunities necessary to thrive.

There is a multitude of online programs on the market today that provide access to knowledge about personal, professional, and entrepreneurial development. Many individuals who take these programs have trouble creating or sustaining results because they don’t have a network to help push them toward their goals. Without a trusted community to give advice, insight, and motivation, stagnation in your journey is almost inevitable.
