Ayanna Osinuga founded Khan Consulting a little more than one year ago to serve nonprofits, state and municipal governments, and other grant-eligible organizations. Though Khan Consulting’s primary mission is to deliver grant-writing services, it also provides assistance in grant research, fundraising, sponsorship letter-writing, and other related services. Khan Consulting has also developed its own “grant finder” mobile app, called “Grant Search.”

Key Reinvention Take-Aways from Ayanna’s Interview:

  • Sometimes reinvention can take time (Ayanna’s took a year and a half) so plan for that
  • Don’t be afraid to take on an internship…at any age!
  • You need to have a thick skin; a failure is always a learning experience and anything worth having, doesn’t come easy
  • Fear can be disabling, but push through it
  • Think back to what you always wanted to do as a child. Listen to your heart, don’t bury the little voice inside you
  • Look for mentors to help you through your process
