Monday I attended The Beauties & Brains Behind the brands III event presented by In Her Shoes & Essence magazine. A Fabulous and fun event honoring 25 fly female entrepreneurs. The room was filled with a lot of major female game changers. It was a big deal to me to be in a positive environment that shed light on some inspiring females to bring out that optimism despite all that’s happening around us and to remind us that we can still accomplish our dreams.
