Download Maria's Bio
Entrepreneur
Maria's entrepreneurial journey started at the tender age of five when she sold puppies (made out of Mardi Gras beads) for .25¢ to her peers.

In high school she built a clientele selling CDs containing some of the hottest Hip-Hop and R&B songs at the time.

In college she became a freelance copywriter–writing copy for biographies, websites, legal documents, and academic papers.

As a Marketing Intern at The Home Depot, Maria wrote radio ad copy that was recorded by Tom Joyner and Steve Harvey. The commercials aired on the aforementioned's popular morning shows which had a combined 16 million listeners.

In 2012 Maria ventured into writing copy for email marketing, and she quickly dominated the space–working with African-American influencers in the entrepreneurship and financial literacy sectors.

In 2015 she launched her copywriting firm Management 24 to broaden her reach and capabilities. In addition to providing email and Facebook ad copy for clients, Maria also became trained in marketing automation and is an ONTRAPORT Certified Consultant as well as a ManyChat Agency Partner.

At Management 24, Maria leads a small team of writers who have been helping her take clients from zero to an estimated seven-figures since the company's inception.

Copywriter
Maria's professional copywriting career started her freshman year at Clark Atlanta University where she was paid to write copy for biographies, academic papers, websites, legal documents, and radio commercials.

Long before she knew what copywriting was, Maria started writing in a journal at the age of six. Journaling gives Maria a heightened sense of introspection and an ability to empathize with people–a key characteristic of successful copywriters.

Copywriting has literally taken Maria around the world and landed her on national and international publications, blogs, networks, podcasts, etc.

For Maria, writing copy is the gift that keeps giving.

Maria's father, Mario Lloyd, is a first-time non-violent drug offender serving life in prison. His incarceration has had a significant impact on Maria's life and has fueled her commitment to serving the community.

During her three-year run as Business Manager for a social commentator, Maria brokered a partnership between her client and Hip-Hop mogul and entrepreneur Russell Simmons. The duo led a national, star-studded movement to end the War On Drugs under the Obama Administration.

In addition to social justice, Maria serves the community through the Mobile Area Black Chamber of Commerce in Mobile, Alabama where she served as Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors from 2019-2021 and is a Founding Board Member.
