Welcome to Mastermind + Grind

A mastermind, group coaching, and community for entrepreneurs in the food and product industry.

About Me

Hi! I’m Kissa, a serial entrepreneur based in Los Angeles. I’ve owned various businesses over my 15 year career, one highlight being Ninong’s Dessert Lab - my family’s Filipino-American food business that created industry-changing products like Ube Pancakes and Ube Cookie Butter..

I’ve been featured in various media outlets and companies including ABC, KTLA-CW, Thrillest, Yelp LA, Intuit, and more.

I’m incredibly passionate about helping people, creating communities, and entrepreneurship. In my spare time you can find me having lunch dates with loved ones, coaching an entrepreneur, or spending time with my husband Charlie, my son Micah, and my pup Evee.

Why You Should Join Me

This community is a 15 year journey! I can’t even put into words how much this community means to me. Whenever I share with people about Mastermind + Grind my eyes light up and I have a huge smile on my face! I’m just SO passionate about this, I can’t hide my excitement!

I’ve always wanted to coach and mentor and I finally feel that it’s the right time for me to give back to my community and share what I’ve learned along the career. My goal is to help you take your business to the next level through group coaching,  providing you with tools to help you grow, and give you a support system that is cheering you on and wants to see you succeed!

I have some big plans for this space! I’ll be sharing resources and content on specific topics about entrepreneurship and the food and product industry while building a group of like-minded individuals that are open, honest, and looking for community. On top of that, I’ll be hosting coaching sessions to help answer your specific questions and needs!

Really guys - I’m pouring my heart and soul into this puppy. And I would love for you to be part of it!
