Fatimah Moody was born and raised in Queens, New York, where her parents owned and operated a few restaurants in the area. After over a decade working in corporate banking and consulting, Moody decided to launch her own LinkVisum Consulting Group, satisfying an entrepreneurial itch passed down from her parents. “Once I launched the business, a lot of the conversations I had with my parents were about them,” she says. “They became my guide for the ups and downs.”
