*Black women represent the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States, and many new entrepreneurs are launching their businesses alongside corporate careers. The “side hustle” represents the future of business, and it underscores the need to support Black entrepreneurs with education and resources as more women venture into the world of owning a business.
Boss Women Media in partnership with Creme of Nature has launched a four-week Home Hustlers: Beauty Edition Program for women looking to take their small business to the next level. Two-hour virtual workshops will be held every Saturday in May, 12 Noon EDT – 2 PM EDT/ 11 AM CDT – 1 PM CDT, and will include panel discussions with business leaders, virtual classes, and opportunities to connect with like-minded women. Some of the speakers who will share expertise around entrepreneurship are Courtney Adeleye, Beatrice Dixon and Angela Simmons. The workshops will dive into topics such as writing a business plan, fundraising, running an online business, scaling and diversifying your revenue. The program will conclude with a pitch competition where attendees will have a chance to win $5,000 for their business.
“We’re excited to partner with BOSS Women Media and the launch the Home Hustlers program providing education, mentorship and financial support to beauty entrepreneurs, nationally, as they launch their businesses,” said Jolorie Williams, general manager of Revlon Multicultural and Contract Services. “Creme of Nature is a legacy brand that has dedicated over 40 years to supporting the needs of the Black community, from haircare to education and empowerment.
