Black History Month | Queens that Reign Supreme

What drives you every day as a female entrepreneur?
I have multiple things that drive me. One being god, two being the women who look up to me daily, and three a legacy and to create generational wealth that my family hadn’t experienced before myself. Being a woman entrepreneur is much better than solely myself.
What advice would you give to aspiring female entrepreneurs?
Never be afraid to jump, but jump with strategy. Get your plan together, pray, and then jump..God has the rest handled. Jumping behind your business, ideas, next move is the smartest thing you can do. Waiting and being hesitant is always going to cause you to say WHAT IF. The longer you wait to jump into your destiny, the longer you are delaying your purpose.
In honor of Black History Month, name one black woman you look up to or influenced you and why?
Oprah for sure! She started her career as the youngest news anchor and the first black female news anchor at Nashville's WLAC-TV. Once she moved to Baltimore to WJZ-TV in 1976 to co-anchor the six o'clock news. In 1977, she was removed as co-anchor and worked lower profile positions at the station. This wasn’t her stop but it sure was the start to a fire that was ignited in her. From this moment she grew into her own. From her talk show, executive producer of her own shows, movies, an entire network! Oprah has so much more than I just named but no matter how many obstacles she received, she took those obstacles and elevated!
How do you Reign Supreme?
I wouldn’t say reign supreme, but how do I stay successful in my lane. Just by staying consistent with my craft, working hard and placing god first in front of all my decisions and allowing him to guide me through my steps.
