It was in 2006 when Tracey Clark Jeffries met with her boss for a performance review and he said: “You should get out of here. If you do not leave now, that fire in your belly will go out and you will regret it.” Asking if she was fired, her boss replied, “No, but you want more and should get it.”

So, she left a six-figure salary and launched Capital Consulting Services in her home while raising two children.

Capital Consulting Services is a boutique consulting firm offering services centered around economic and community enhancements. The firm helps organizations improve performance and operations by analyzing current issues and developing action plans that access new opportunities, enhance learning and change. Her initial client market was working with banking institutions to help clients get funding for their start-ups, but Clark Jeffries expanded to working with businesses and municipalities to also carve out development plans.

“Our goal is to continue our work through our collaborative style, transparency and creativity that gives us the edge in our market,” said Clark Jeffries. These plans are already in action with a vision to become a global entity expanding the office to Washington, DC, while working with the country of Ghana on sustainability in agriculture and business innovations.

“What makes Tracey Clark Jeffries a Titan is her compassion for mankind and ability to influence not only her clients but also communities,” said her staff. In addition to serving as CEO of Capital Consulting Services, Clark Jeffries has served as a resource counselor and advisor for the Small Business Administration, as the senior advisor to Ferguson Mayor Ella Jones and as an ambassador of Women in Public Policy. She also is creating the first corporate taskforce for a government entity that is designing a plan for the people of the community to access jobs, resources, technology, education and healthcare.

Clark Jeffries has also established a nonprofit organization that provided women and veteran women incubation space and technical assistance for small business start-ups and created the Safe Babies Program.

Always seeking to remain influential in the business field and community, Clark Jeffries has an action plan. “My goal to remain an influential business leader is to strengthen my social responsibilities to communities globally and continue with the mission to improve how the government and corporations operate for an improved bottom line,” she said.
