What the business does

Safe, fun, and nurturing transportation service for metro-Atlanta children

Where did the idea for Sitters Express come from?

Baker_BlackandBillingual_1

"I thought why not provide a convienent transportation service specifically for children."

I currently and have been providing childcare for families for about 10 years. I'm finding it more and more common for parents to ask me to transport their children to extracurricular activities. So I thought why not provide a convienent transportation service specifically for children, with very qualified drivers whom parents trust!�

What do you see as your biggest hurdles before launching?�

"My biggest hurdles are coming up with set pricing"

My biggest hurdles are coming up with set pricing, because I think Sitters Express should be higher than Uber and Lyft but enough for people to want to use it. �

Your brother Musa was part of the Southside program last year. What advice did he give you before you started Start:ME?

"He said to be present in every aspect of the program, really take advantage of the opportunity and enjoy the process."

My brother extremely benefitted and enjoyed his time attending the program. He said many great things about the program but what really stuck with me was when he said to be present in every aspect of the program, really take advantage of the opportunity and enjoy the process.
