About Sonya Lane #SLane
Hi! I am Sonya Lane and I am the Executive Director of CHANGE, Inc.
I try to learn something new each day and I thank God for my blessings. I enjoy sharing my knowledge, resources, time and anything else I have to help others. My goal is to help Arkansas entrepreneurs turn their ideas into a successful business.
Communities Helping A New Generation of Entrepreneurs, Inc. (CHANGE) was founded in 2005 by Ms. Sonya Lane and Mr. A.D Wilbourn. CHANGE was created to bring awareness about small business development. In 2004 A.D. Wilbourn began to formulate a music production company, during his start-up phase Sonya and A.D. often discussed how great it would have been if they had known in high school that owning a business was an attainable goal.
They researched entrepreneurship in Arkansas and found some schools had teachers who implemented entrepreneurship or economics into their lessons during the school year. This prompted them to start providing resources to the community to bring greater awareness about entrepreneurship across the state of Arkansas.
