Just Bee Helpin' began in 2021 amid COVID-19. Robyn says, "I was having a conversation about side hustles with my friend, and she encouraged me to think of something I could do to generate some extra income. I rested on the same thoughts that I've always had about being a business owner-I know a lot about business and have experience running others' business, but I'm not creative, and I don't have a marketable talent or gift. My friend just laughed and told me to pray about it. Well, that is exactly what I did. I started praying and seeking God for inspiration. God answered my prayers and gave me the idea for my business. From those friendly seeds and divine intervention, The Helper Bee, LLC, was created. One year and a couple of months later, I was led to rename the business to 'Just Bee Helpin" and rebrand it, aiming to expand our service area and better support the needs of our growing clients. It has been buzzing ever since," she says.

Robyn describes herself as a vibrant, dynamic force of nature with a heart as big as her native Mississippi sky. She's not just a woman; Robyn is a testament to the power of faith, family, and hard work. Her roots run deep in the rich soil of Mississippi, where she learned the values of integrity, resilience, and community. "I am a God-fearing woman, devoted wife, and proud mother of two beautiful girls and one handsome fur baby," she professes.

Robyn's journey in life didn't stop at the Mississippi state line. In 2004, she boldly stepped into a new chapter of her life by leaving Southern Mississippi for North Mississippi. There, she crossed over into Memphis, TN, and embraced new opportunities and challenges with open arms, while immersing herself in the vibrant energy of Memphis. Next, Robyn found work and eventually furthered her education.

In 2013, Robyn enrolled in LeMoyne-Owen College's Accelerated Degree Completion Program (ADCP). With unwavering determination and faith, she tackled her studies while working full-time and managing her family. Ultimately, she graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree. Before the launch of Just Bee Helpin', Robyn spent over two decades honing her administrative skills as an Administrative Assistant. During that time, she also volunteered those skills to help small businesses and grassroots organizations go and grow.

When Robyn isn't buzzing around town, she's soaking up precious moments with family and friends, savoring delicious food, exploring new destinations, and giving back to her community through ministering and volunteering with Hungernomics and the Group Economics Fund Team (GEFT); two organizations very near and dear to her heart.

When asked what she loves most about her company, Robyn says it's the opportunity to infuse her passion for service and dedication to excellence. "Whether it's securing last-minute reservations at a coveted restaurant, helping to ensure an event is executed smoothly, or simply being the reliable support a client needs in their busy lives, I find immense fulfillment in the art of assistance," she shares. Beyond the logistics lies a deeper connection. It's the ability to truly understand and anticipate clients' needs, to be their trusted confidante and partner in navigating life's complexities. It's not just about running errands; it's about being their ally, advocate, and beacon of support in a world of endless demands."

Robyn shares that she is inspired mostly by her unwavering commitment to faith and her dedication to please God. She also has a desire to break generational curses and to create generational wealth. "The ultimate quest is to leave a lasting legacy. It's the blend of faith, familial devotion, and visionary ambition that truly inspires me."

On March 27th of this year, Robyn graduated from ELEVATE Mississippi, a 12-week incubator that supports Mississippi residents who are small business owners needing technical assistance to enhance their business operations. The program provides resources, tools, mentorship, training, and wellness support and connects an ecosystem of entrepreneurs to thriving community partners dedicated to the growth of solopreneurs and micro businesses. ELEVATE moves businesses from aspiration

to application to the achievement of growing from sole operators to a thriving business with multiple employees. Robyn was one of four selected out of the 26-member cohort to participate in the program's pitch competition and won second place, with a cash award of $5000.

Looking ahead, Robyn describes a future filled with continued growth, innovation, and impact. Building upon the foundation that has been laid, the next chapter for her involves expanding her business further, exploring new opportunities for diversification, and scaling operations. "I envision leveraging emerging technologies and trends to stay ahead in a rapidly evolving market landscape. Moreover, I am committed to deepening my community engagement, fostering collaborations with industry peers, and giving back through mentorship and support for aspiring entrepreneurs," she says.
