Kisha Woods - Founder, Upgraded MindsetZ, LLC.

Kisha is the visionary behind Upgraded MindsetZ, LLC. As an Award-Winning Coach, she focuses on transformative and entrepreneurial growth for women. Kisha is a motivational speaker, Amazon best-selling author, 2X podcast host, community advocate, and serial entrepreneur.

Her purpose? To empower women through various resources to dismantle barriers and instill mind-reconditioning methods to amplify their personal and professional lives effectively.

Kisha faced silent battles with her mental well-being throughout the years. In March 2020, she hit a critical low mentally, exhausted by the negative thoughts and turmoil in her mind and this pivotal moment marked the beginning of a transformative journey, which she chronicles in her Amazon Best Selling book, ‘From Havoc to Healing: 30 Days of Reconditioning’.

Kisha founded Upgraded MindsetZ in June 2020 and evolved it into a supportive platform of administrative support, coaching, mentorship, media services, and other inspirational initiatives focused on personal and entrepreneurial growth for women.

After being let go from her corporate job in November 2020, Kisha transitioned into full-time entrepreneurship and hasn’t looked back! She is also the co-owner of UPM Suites in Peoria, IL. UPM is a local resource hub that provides community outreach, beauty-enhancing services, and retail shopping space to other small businesses who offer a diverse range of products and services. 

Kisha’s areas of expertise include mindset reconditioning, transformative growth, self-prioritization, mental health, societal stigmas, start-up entrepreneurship, supportive mentorship, and more.
