Felicia Jeffries is a paralegal with specialties in business, bankruptcy, and mass-torts personal injury law. She began working in the field after she started school in 2010 for one of the few Black-led business and bankruptcy attorneys in the metroplex.

Today, she is the founder and CEO of Moore Financial Services and the Biz Credit Movement, which help entrepreneurs construct their companies and their enterprise credit score.

She got inspired to start Moore Financial Services and the Biz Credit Movement when she was working as a paralegal. She was involved in a case involving a young Black boutique owner who was dragged to court by a large corporate firm over delayed rent payments.

For six months, the boutique owner couldn’t settle her rent fees and the company wanted full payment or her merchandise will be thrown out of the store. Jeffries’ client won but the company did not allow her access to the store.

They even disregarded the orders of the court and threw her out of the store, pouring oil on her merchandise worth $25,000. It was this case that inspired Jeffries to want to help people repair their credit, leading to the establishment of her two companies.

In August this year, she was crowned Miss Female Entrepreneur International but not without going by means of a trial that will take a look at her very potential to remain alive.

According to her, she contracted COVID-19 after slacking on taking her herbs and medication. Although individuals with autoimmune points were usually not presupposed to get sick, she felt her system shutting down half by half till she couldn’t breathe.

“My chest felt prefer it had 50 kilos of stress on it, and I keep in mind wishing this expertise on nobody. I used to be blessed to be launched on July 4th. That was my Independence Day,” she stated.

“I received the crown as Miss Woman Entrepreneur International 2022.”

Jeffries’ message is simple, “Take care of your health. Advocate for yourself because you know your body better than anyone. Entrepreneurs have added stress; they must maintain a healthy business. It is kind of difficult to do that when you have health issues, even though it’s possible.”

The entrepreneur said she wants to use her title to “help spread a message of comfort and hope to those who need it.” According to her, she has dealt with several entrepreneurs with health problems.

“During this next year, I want to be a light and a source of encouragement to business owners and others who are disabled and suffer chronic health disorders,” she noted. “They need to see that anything is possible with belief and actions. Those with Myasthenia Gravis and other autoimmune disorders do not have to feel helpless. A lot of what we go through can be controlled by having a strong mental disposition and faith.”
