Atlanta Businesswoman Finds a Knock Out Solution to Childhood Homelessness

 

Soyini Coke – Business Strategy Consultant by Day, Boxer by Night

A “Knock Out” Solution to Child Homelessness on Thursday, November 3rd.

Soyini Coke, founder of business strategy consulting firm, Annona Enterprises, will be battling it out on November 3rd. with other Atlanta business men and women to help an estimated 2.1 million homeless and street kids in America. This black tie event at the Foundry at Puritan Mill (916 Joseph E. Lowery Blvd, Atlanta 30318) from 6pm-12am, includes executives, doctors, lawyers and sales executives prepared for a real “white-collar” amateur boxing match. Atlanta Corporate Fight Night is partnering with StandUp For Kids, the organization that claims their program to be recognized by both the George W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations and the U.S. Justice Department for the impact and scope of its programs.

When asked for her reasons for participating in ACFN, Soyini says, “I’m learning so much about myself through this process. I have more strength and courage than I thought I had. Yet, I’m more fragile and have so much to learn about life than I thought.” After turning 35 this year, Soyini considers this to be the “last blush” of her youth. In fact, she is using the ACFN to add momentum to an already successful fitness regime through which Soyini has lost over 30 pounds since last October.

Training for the fight has allowed Soyini to achieve more than just her fitness goals. “I am learning to be flexible, coachable and focused.” Having this increased self-awareness has given her the ability to pat herself on the back when she is satisfied, as well as the increased drive to go after the things she still wants to accomplish in life.

Soyini’s service to her clients outside the ring has also been energized. “Boxing takes a lot of focused attention. When I bring that same kind of intentionality to my client interactions and business activities, I’m even more productive and efficient.” For example, she lead the Team Ivy Networking Breakfast from a struggling group of a few attendees in a gym basement to a formally incorporated, growing membership organization with a functioning board, cash reserves and a location at the City Club of Buckhead.

Soyini intends to leverage all her passion and discipline both inside and outside the ring to make sure that the Atlanta Corporate Fight Night reaches its target of raising $100,000 for StandUp For Kids.  “I’m fighting so that every child in the country has a place that they can call home.”
