Check On It
A Little Black Enterprise Love
The morning after this year’s “The Beauties & Brains Behind the Brands III” event back in July, I got a call from Black Enterprise to be featured on their site. I was exhausted from months of photo shoots and event planning, but what Fly Female Entrepreneur says no to Black Enterprise? It is a complete honor to have my business celebrated amongst so many powerful brands we all know and love. This interview is super special to me because I got to talk about my first entrepreneurial influences and what I’ve learned about life from a dear friend, Brook Stephenson, who passed suddenly just a few weeks ago.
I was having one of those “what am I really doing with my life?!” weeks, but this feature totally brightened up my day. Here’s a quick snippet of the feature:
I do not believe one has to be born an entrepreneur to succeed but it certainly helps. I think, innately, we may have tendencies and ways about ourselves that make some of us more likely to succeed as entrepreneurs. But I also think that going to business school, taking on entrepreneurship, or studying under an entrepreneur will give you the skills you need to be successful as one. [For me,] I think it’s a combination of both because of what I saw growing up. Entrepreneurship was normal for me. But I’ve also had the opportunity to meet and work with people who are entrepreneurs. Being in PR, a lot of my clients are women-owned brands, and I’m interfacing and working directly with the owner of the brand, day-to-day. That helps me sharpen my own tools when it comes to my business.
