Hey! I’m Patrice K. Cokley (coke-lee) – a t-shaped marketer & consultant that has a heart for helping creative entrepreneurs understand branding, how to strategically grow their business.
I’ve spent decades studying the patterns and trends of entrepreneurship, marketing, and the music business to better help creatives turn their passion into a career.
Many know me for my work with Mathew Knowles (Beyoncé & Solange’s dad), but I’m most proud of receiving the 2019 Mentor of the Year Award from the students of SAE Institute Chicago, where I was a Music Business & Marketing Instructor for 3 years. I’ve never been one to chase clout. I focus on being impactful.
