For years, I didn't think I could take the necessary steps to build a formal business. It was as if entrepreneurship would always just be a dream or an unachievable goal. But over time, I realized the world is full of people who were once unsure, but they leaped anyway. There is a fearlessness I have to ask questions when no one else will. And to speak the bold truth when others bury it. It's from this place and much prayer that I finally started running toward my dreams. And now, I am elated to say that I have joined the ranks of so many courageous black, female small business owners who have come before me.
