Seeing that I'm a business women I like to stay current on market trends and business news. I've recently discovered and have seen and increase in black women owned business everywhere in tech, retail and especially health and beauty. One of the reasons I decided to start my business is because I went natural and wanted to provide natural hair products for natural hair women like myself and I can't help notice that there are a lot of newly launched businesses that are centered around natural hair care. It's amazing to see how going natural and being yourself can not only build black women's self esteem but build wealth in the black community as well.
According to the US Census Bureau, black female-owned businesses are the fastest growing economic force in the U.S. The number of black women-owned businesses grew 67 percent between 2007 and 2012, outpacing the 27 percent growth rate for female-owned businesses. We are making history and we are doing it well. Black women business are on the rise and we are being notice all around the world and I'm so glad to be apart of it.
Happy Women's History Month!
