Since day one, My Founder Story has been dedicated to amplifying the voices of womxn business owners and empowering female founders, and that has included a commitment to elevating womxn of color. In an effort to ensure we’re doing the same behind the scenes as well, we put out a call to womxn business owners of color interested in writing about the challenges of entrepreneurship and becoming content contributors to My Founder Story’s blog.
My Founder Story welcomed three new content contributors in the past month: Raven Wright, CEO of Urbannature4kids; Lolita Walker, founder of Walker and Walker Enterprises; and Averri Liggins, CEO of Black Women Moguls.
Raven shared some of the ups and downs she’s faced as a Black woman in a field dominated by white men and her advice for fledgling entrepreneurs in her blog,”The Rough but Rewarding Road to Becoming a Full-Time Entrepreneur.”
Lolita challenged female business founders to consider the mindset it takes to navigate the corporate world and apply it to entrepreneurship in her blog, “Dear Ms. Power Woman, It’s Time We Play to Pay.”
As an entrepreneur who understands what it’s like to wear many hats, Averri shared some of the apps she uses to keep organized in her day-to-day life in her blog, “Feeling Unproductive? Try These 5 Apps.”
My Founder Story looks forward to sharing articles from womxn entrepreneurs like Raven, Lolita and Averri on an ongoing basis. For information about becoming a contributor, visit the Join Our Team page.
