If you met at a bar-Felecia Hatcher Bio

I love oatmeal, peppermint tea and martini’s mixed with good conversations. I feel that I can solve any problem with my iPhone, a few rubber bands and 2 safety pins. I escaped cubicle nation for good 5 years ago and never looked back. I worked for some really cool tech and marketing companies before falling on my face chasing after an ice cream truck in heels, which lead me to start an ice cream experience company. I have committed my life to helping people start businesses and embrace technology to change their lives and the world. I do all this through popsicles, speaking, writing and living my life with the biggest kool-aid smile ever!

The Impressive stuff my publicist would kill me if I didn’t mention:
Founder of Black Tech Week, Author of the books “How to Start a Business on a Ramen Noodle Budget” and “The C Student’s Guide to Scholarships-A Creative Guide to finding scholarships when your grades suck and your parents are broke.” Chief Popsicle of Feverish Pops, Motivational Speaker and Techie.
