Today, I’m wrapping up my Black History Month series. I’ve enjoyed highlighting some of my favorite Black women entrepreneurs. As I said in Part I, Black women are making tremendous strides in numerous fields. We deserve to be celebrated and supported, and my hope is that after reading each post, you will do both.

1. Roni, Personal Styling | Roni is one of my favorite personal style bloggers, hands-down. She has impeccable taste and an incredible eye for fashion. Roni’s love for bright colors and vibrant prints matches her personality! If your wardrobe or closet is in need of a fashion overhaul, I suggest contacting her ASAP. This New Jersey-based fashionista offers services including, but not limited to, personal styling and personal shopping. Click HERE to find out more about Roni’s style services.
2. Tiona Blyden, Christian Mentorship & Entrepreneurship | I was introduced to Tiona a few years ago. At the time, I was growing in my faith, becoming more clear on my purpose, and navigating my way through married life as a semi-newlywed. One of my prayers during that time was to connect with like-minded, married women. A few months later, one of my friends invited me to a 5 a.m. prayer call challenge, hosted by Tiona. Over time, our relationship grew into a beautiful friendship. I’ve watched and supported Tiona’s growing business, Proverbs 31 Boss, and I couldn’t be more proud of her success. She has a gift and a passion for helping women, especially wives and mother’s, grow in Christ. If you’re looking for a Christian mentor, click HERE to connect with Tiona.
3. Monroe Steele, Blogging & Social Media | No one can style a little black dress or a monochromatic outfit as effortlessly as this New York-based fashion blogger. Monroe has her finger on the pulse of fashion, and watching her blossom into a full-time blogger and entrepreneur has been awe-inspiring! She’s a genius at storytelling through social media, and her writing style is concise, enjoyable and refreshing! Recently, Monroe began offering social media templates through her Etsy Shop to help other entrepreneurs monetize Instagram Stories, pitch to brands, and more!

4. Jei Monroe, Thrifted Fashion | I was thrilled to connect with Jei on social media last year. After finding out we were both Leo’s and addicted to thrift shopping, we pretty much realized our connection was a match made in heaven! Based in New York, Jei is on a mission to “help the everyday woman be fierce, fabulous, and fearless by building up her wardrobe, style, and confidence”. Jei offers styling, branding and creative services to business clients, as well as the everyday working woman. She also hosts “IT’S THRIFT!” — A Curated Pop-Up Thrift Workshop.

5. Whitney James, Women’s Empowerment | Of course, I had to round out this Black women entrepreneur series by including me! For the past three years, my women’s empowerment organization, Fearless Woman I Am (FWIAM), has been thriving. The purpose of FWIAM is to encourage women to BE FEARLESS while living unapologetically with intention, purpose and audacious faith. With each vision board event, ambassador’s meeting, and community service effort, that purpose is being fulfilled. To see what’s next for FWIAM, signup for our newsletter HERE!
