Reclamation and Resilience with Myoshia Boykin-Anderson

When I talked with tech entrepreneur Myoshia Boykin-Anderson for the podcast, she made so many poignant points about patriarchy, racism, reclamation, and resilience. As she says: “It’s so much bigger than me.” It’s important to her that when she succeeds, she brings others along who are also often knocked down and held back by unjust societal structures. We can learn so much from what she shares here.

We spoke about:

  • how Patriarchy Stress Disorder has affected her own life and how it uniquely affects Black women

  • the personal, collective, and ancestral trauma of injustice, colonialism, and racism, and the intersections with patriarchy

  • how to begin the work of releasing these layers of trauma, and the importance of taking the first step of validation in order to reclaim

  • Myoshia shares her experiences of reclamation in the tech space which has been so dominated by white men, and how the odds being stacked against her has ignited her determination to claim her seat at the table (for herself and to clear the way for others)

  • the importance of loving yourself through the healing and growth, not being gaslit by society and buying into Imposter Syndrome

  • how she took a devastating career moment and created an entrepreneurial opportunity, but only when she combined that opportunity with a ton of resilience and consistency

  • how she’s lighting the way for others’ entrepreneurial journeys, and how automation and delegation can be connected to liberation of time, growth, and money


Myoshia Boykin-Anderson truly represents the “American Dream.” As a native Houstonian and a proud graduate of Jack Yates Senior High School, Myoshia saw some of life’s most difficult times, but she didn’t let that stop her from striving for a better future. In November 1998, with no savings and no college degree, Myoshia got her first taste of entrepreneurship by starting her first company.  She was able to grow it to a multi-six figure operation before closing it in 2007. After taking the lessons learned from that experience, she launched her second company in January 2009. Myoshia is now the award-winning founder and CEO of one of the leading IT Consulting companies in the country, AndTech Solutions, LLC. Over the past 11 years, under Myoshia’s leadership, AndTech has grown into a multi seven-figure consulting firm providing custom application development and other technology services to some of the top U.S. companies and organizations. They’ve implemented health plans responsible for managing over 56 million members across 25 states and consulted with small businesses in creating custom application solutions to meet their technology challenges. What makes this even more impressive is that Myoshia has done this with grit and hard work as a self-made businesswoman with no formal higher education or college degree.

Myoshia is proud to hold Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) certifications and sits on the Executive Board of C-STEM, an organization whose mission is to inspire the next generation of innovators and thought leaders. Myoshia and her husband are parents to two adult children and are based right outside of Houston, TX.
