Meet Nahamani Yisrael of Nahamani.org

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nahamani Yisrael. 

Nahamani, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I began designing websites in early 2000, I happened upon a box of software at my then employer’s office and used the software to create a hideous website. I went on to take some formal training and studied computer programming (Associates) and business management (Bachelors) in college. 

In late 2014, I reentered the entrepreneurship space and used my programming skills and business acumen to create digital experiences for my friends and colleagues. It wasn’t until 2015 that I officially launched Nahamani.org. 

For the first two years, I worked full-time and treated my business like a side-hustle. However, in 2017, I fired my day job and hired myself. Since this time, I have grown from a one-person operation to managing a team of 7 content creators, website developers, and photographers/videographers. 

Today we support businesses and non-profit agencies throughout Ohio, California, Massachusetts, Texas, and Mississippi. Our clients span the gambit of industries and professions, including not-for-profit agencies seeking to cure debilitating illnesses to beauty moguls who manufacture cosmetic products for other well-known brands. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Entrepreneurship is messy, sometimes filthy. Starting any new venture will include bumps in the road and challenges that must be overcome. As a single mother who was once homeless, I am not afraid of rolling my sleeves up and getting dirty from time to time. 

Among the challenges I have had to face include juggling work responsibilities and motherhood, racking up tens of thousands of dollars of personal debt to cover business expenses, and personal struggles with PTSD as well as anxiety and depression. The latter will be with me for the rest of my life, however through counseling and focus on my overall health and wellness I am learning to manage stress, ask for help when needed and give myself grace whenever I fall short. 

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Nahamani.org, Ltd?
Nahamani.org is a digital creative agency. My team and I help businesses communicate their value with their target audience by creating memorable digital experiences. We use website design and development, social media management and advertising, as well as one-on-one brand coaching to assist our clients in building relationships with their audience, transforming online interactions into revenue-generating transactions. 

We specialize in helping small, 1-2 person teams, compete globally utilizing digital platforms to manage their customer intake process, keep their audience engaged, provide ongoing support and promote their new products and services. Because I too am a small business owner, with training in organizational development, I am able to incorporate many aspects of change management including stakeholder engagement in the solutions we design on behalf of our clients. Our clients love that our solutions are easy to navigate, aesthetically appealing, and save them hours of time each day wherein they can focus on servicing their clients and fostering the relationships that we help them formulate.

It’s important for readers to know that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to their digital marketing needs. Every business is unique, and thus the solutions that we create are uniquely designed to help that business communicate digitally with one specific target audience. They should be wary of any cookie-cutter solutions that claim to address all of their needs. 

The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
Covid-19 has taught us many lessons. One of the most important is the value of time and living life to the fullest. As an entrepreneur, we often feel that we have to be “on” all of the time, and the pause created by the shutdowns has reminded us that there are more important things than making money. I am learning to cherish the small wins, to celebrate the people in my life, and to take better care of my physical and mental health so that I can continue to enjoy this thing called life.
