Lakena Belcher is a Woman of God, Wife, Mother, Mentor, Public Speaker, Entrepreneur and Servant Leader. She has dedicated her life to serving others. She has helped hundreds of people to become financially empowered through financial education and a solution-focused approach. Her roots are in South Carolina where she was born and raised. She grew up in a small town (rural area) with the population approximately being 2,000 people. The area was consumed with people that were living in poverty including young Lakena. It was there that she discovered she was destined for greatness, for herself and her legacy.
Lakena worked diligently to beat the odds that were against her but found herself living the lifestyle that she grew up in (poverty). She finished high school with a well above average GPA then went on to college. During her 2nd year of college she became pregnant. So many people began to count her out, but she proved them wrong. She finished college the following year graduating with an Associates Degree in Business Administration. Just weeks after graduating she landed an entry-level position with a Top 10 Fortune 500 Company where she had an amazing career. The company paid for her to finish her college education as she received a Bachelors of Science with an emphasis in Business Administration.
She managed several retail locations averaging $8-10 Million Dollars in Assets per year. Then was promoted to a high esteem position as an Account Manager managing Multi-Million Dollar Accounts for some of Georgia’s finest properties in the most prestigious neighborhoods. After being with the company for more than 10 years she decided it was time to start pursuing her purpose which is to help others become financially empowered!
Lakena is the Founder of Harvest Time Financial Advisory & Services, LLC. She founded Harvest Time with the mission to “Break the Cycle of Financial Bondage While Creating Generational Wealth.” She is also a Certified Financial Health Counselor (CFHC) and Licensed Insurance Agent. Harvest Time provides various services which includes Financial Counseling, Insurance Planning, Investment Planning, Retirement Planning, Estate Planning and Notary Services.
Today she travels all over the country empowering others to take control of their finances. She is a member of Momentum Society and Sisters United ATL as well as actively spending time at local schools promoting financial literacy for young people through the YFL Foundation. She has also added being a Real Estate Investor and becoming a Notary Public for the State of Georgia to her many talents. Her values have never wavered and remain the same which are God, Family then Career (in that order).
I am truly blessed to have Lakena as my mentor, business partner and a friend. Because of the relationship she has with GOD, her consistency and determination to not only help herself but her passion to help others as well. This is my Testimony on how my life has changed by giving FES and Lakena a YES!
