Over the last few years we’ve had people consistently ask us to help identify black owned businesses. In an effort to begin to share with you some of the great black owned businesses in our community, we are going to begin to release community spotlights on black owned businesses. We sat down with Terrica Matthews also known as the Credit Score Queen, Matthews owns Premier Property and Consulting Group.
Matthews shared with us how she got started and how you can contact her for her services.
Q: What made you start a business?
A: I started Premier PCG after witnessing the lack of financial literacy amongst my peers. This lack of knowledge was most likely generational so I knew that if I not only executed my business idea but created relatable educational content along with proven strategies, I could certainly change the financial health of many families for the better.
Q: What has been most rewarding about being an entrepreneur?
A: The most rewarding thing about being an entrepreneur is being blessed with the opportunity to serve others. Everyday I help our financial family members reach their credit and real estate goals all while doing what I love. It’s a Win-Win for all parties involved.
Q: What services or product does your business provide?
A: Premier PCG is a full service personal finance brokerage for all things real estate, consumer/business credit, tax preparation, and small business start up assistance. We are licensed, bonded, and insured in the State of Louisiana.
Q: What lessons have you learned on the journey you’d like to share?
A: I learned that I am not for everyone and everyone isn’t for me. I had to take a moment to sit in that reality and be perfectly fine with it. Through prayer and having a reality check with self, I was able to define our ideal client and beyond business, I had to get clear about what type of energy I wanted to have present in my personal space.
Q: What are the challenges of being a young black professional?
A: As we are afforded the opportunity to expand, it has been a challenge getting consumers to respect the growth and the systems that are in place to ensure client satisfaction and accountability. I find myself educating my family, friends, clients, and others on how to professionally conduct business and the importance of giving grace to black owned businesses that they so very often give to non black owned businesses.
Q: Without exposing all your plans, what does the future look like for your brand?
A: The future is very bright for Premier PCG. We are expanding our Credit to Closing system to other markets amongst other exciting things.
Q: Why Baton Rouge?
A: First and foremost, Baton Rouge is home. I love the people, the culture, and the food. Most importantly, I wanted to be a contributing member of the positive progression that is taking place in the capital city.
