Black History Month | Queens that Reign Supreme
She'Neil Johnson, CEO of Base Butter
What drives you every day as a female entrepreneurs?
Remembering that the opportunity to fully express myself, voice my opinions, and start a business were afforded to me through the sacrifices of my ancestors and also knowing that what I do will create a better future for those who come after me.
What advice would you give to aspiring female entrepreneurs?
The best way to learn is from experience and at the end of the day YOU know what is best for your company. Do not question your gut because someone smarter, in business longer or older than you told you otherwise.
In honor of Black History Month, name one black woman you look up to or influenced you and why?
Oprah! Not only because she is an incredible business women, but she continues to bring together and build a strong community of blacks who help push our economic and social well being forward.
