This week, I’m delighted to recognize the last five Black women entrepreneurs! Four of these women are based in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area, and the other is based in New York. These east coast entrepreneurs are trailblazers and it’s my pleasure to highlight them today.
1. Stacey Bolden, Artist & Creative Coach | Stacey, AKA “The Creative Coach”, recently relaunched her business, Creatively Speaking Company. From face painting to paint parties, Stacey is one of the most creative women I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I hosted a Create & Paint for my first FWIAM event, and Stacey was the consummate facilitator! With a mission to “change communities, stretch imaginations and empower people from all ages, backgrounds, and cultures, through creative arts & expression”, Creatively Speaking Company also has plans to offer creative coaching in the near future. As a longtime family friend and a fellow Black woman entrepreneur, I’m thrilled to watch as Stacey makes her mark on the creative arts industry!

2. Stania Romain, Fashion Styling, Mentorship & Empowerment | Working with this DC-based entrepreneur is always a joy! Stania is passionate about empowering young ladies and making women look and feel their best. Her delightful personality and her keen eye for detail are refreshing. A true “girl’s girl”, Stania is always there to support and encourage other women who’re doing positive things.

3. Danielle Lewis, Beauty & Lifestyle | I attended high school with Danielle and I always remember how kind, well-liked, bubbly, and fashion-forward she was. Fast forward to today and Danielle is putting those amazing qualities to work! With 10+ years of beauty industry experience, Danielle is a sought after makeup artist and beauty educator. She’s also the host of her own podcast, The Danielle Lewis Show, and the co-founder of The Dreamers Brunch. This New York-based entrepreneur is truly walking in her purpose and inspiring women along the way. Click HERE to keep up with Danielle, and to see what services she offers!
4. India Roseborough, Fitness | If you’re looking for a personal trainer in the Baltimore area, I highly suggest connecting with India, the owner of PYT Training Studio and PYT Meals. India was one of the trainers during my 21-day boot camp experience. She has a no-nonsense, yet encouraging, style of training, and understands that everyone works and trains at their own pace. India has a degree in Exercise Science and over 5 years of experience in the personal training industry. With a mission to “help each client reach their maximum potential inside the gym and beyond”, India is well on her way to becoming a standout in her field.

5. Erin A. Martin, Photography | Erin is a DC-based “CuratHER, InfluencHER, and PhotograpHER”. She is extremely talented and hardworking and has a passion for telling stories through photography. Erin has captured some of life’s most beautiful moments with her camera, and her quality of work is superb. I’m inspired by her creativity and I look forward to working with her in the near future.
