About Jamila Davis

Jamila T. Davis, born and raised in Jamaica Queens, New York, is a motivational speaker and the creator of the Voices of Consequences Enrichment Series for incarcerated women. Through her powerful delivery, Davis illustrates the real-life lessons and consequences that result from poor choices. She also provides the techniques and strategies that she personally has utilized to dethrone negative thinking patterns, achieve emotional healing, and restoration and growth. Davis is no stranger to triumphs and defeats. By the age of 25, she utilized her business savvy and street smarts to rise to the top of her field, becoming a lead go-to person in the Hip-Hop Music Industry and a self-made millionaire through real estate investments. Davis lived a care-free lavish lifestyle, surrounded by rap stars, professional sports figures and other well known celebrities. All seemed well until the thorn of materialism clouded Davis’ judgments and her business shortcuts backfired, causing her self-made empire to crumble. Davis was convicted of bank fraud, for her role in a multi-million dollar bank fraud scheme, and sentenced to 12 1/2 years in federal prison. Davis’ life was in a great shambles as she faced the obstacle of imprisonment. While living in a prison cell, stripped of all her worldly possessions, and abandoned by most of her peers, she was forced to deal with the root of her dilemmas- her own inner self. Davis searched passionately for answers and strategies to heal and regain her self-confidence, and to discover her life’s purpose. She utilized her formal training from Lincoln University, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, along with her real-life post-incarceration experiences and documented her discoveries. Revealing the tools, techniques and strategies she used to heal, Davis composed a series of books geared to empower women. Davis’ goal is to utilize her life experiences to uplift, inspire and empower her audience to achieve spiritual and emotional wholeness and become their very best, despite their dilemmas and past obstacles.

This is an emotionally great read. It explicitly tells poignant details of how a young woman “took one for the team”. I’ve heard of “doing the time for the crime”, but it seems the system has chosen to make an example out of this lady who is currently incarcerated. I commend Ms. Davis on writing this book and painting a well defined, transparent, yet horrifying portrait for young women of our new generation to visibly and mentally experience beforehand.

This book made me step back, and look at how I approach business. Everything that glitters isn’t gold. I know that at times we cut corners in business, and this book takes you into a young woman’s world which resulted in a life changing event for cutting corners. The book is amazing, truthful, heartfelt, and shocking. It is a must read for new and old in the business world.

Wow! This book sheds light on not only what happen to Jamila but also everyone who was used as a guinea pig for offering these loans that was heading in the wrong direction from the start. How is that the bank can offer these cookie cut programs but not be held accountable. This is amazing well written book that sheds light!

I know every single legal intricacy of this case. However, it was not until I read the "behind the scenes" deals and agreements that the final pieces of the puzzle fell into place.

This book will open your eyes to the "real" meltdown of the economy and how the banks, once again, parlayed the situation to their economic advantage on the backs and wallets of all of us... Excellent read...
