Black Women Copywriters

Hiring a copywriter is more than just having a person who can put words together for your website or blog posts. When using the right strategies, copywriting helps a business' core values and brand messaging to shine, increasing connection and engagement with current and potential customers.  Every word on your website, in your marketing emails, and in your other collateral is digital real estate, so you really need to use that space well and choose...

What does Hustle and Grind look like?

I work with hundreds of Black women entrepreneurs daily who are working toward everything from the 6-figure status to multi-millionaire finish lines. I think this journey has given me a special sight and understanding. For one thing, the ladies who are winners are the ones who hustle and grind. I’m often able to spot the winners who will rise to the occasion. There’s a lot of talk about what “hustle and grind” means, but digging...

What Nobody Told Me About Member Subscription Models

At the end of 2020, Sistahbiz wrapped up year one of our membership program for Black women entrepreneurs! It took me two years to even launch the Sistahbiz membership program because we had a lot on our plate running our existing programs for Black women in business and I suspected it was going to take a lot of work. I also anticipated a learning curve that I didn’t have the capacity to manage alongside some...

Bosses In Construction

Where are all the Black women bosses in construction?  They’re there, even when society has conditioned us not to look for them! Too often, when we think about the construction industry, society has made it easy for our minds to instantly envision male workers and engineers in blue jeans, work boots, and hard hats. Similarly, the default picture of a construction CEO is a white man. This isn’t a coincidence. From the time Black girls...

4 Ways to Make Money With Your Customer Avatar

I talk with Black women entrepreneurs consistently about the importance of creating a customer avatar. You’ll see this all over the internet and in sales courses everywhere, including the Sistahbiz Global Network coursework. Despite how often it comes up, though, it’s still common to see customer avatars being misunderstood, taken for granted, or straight up underutilized once the initial activity is completed. Point blank, that’s just a waste of an amazingly valuable exercise and business...

New Year CEO Prep

Whew! What a year! This year 2020 has been filled with ups and downs, wins and losses, for the nation as a whole and for the Black community in particular. While over 40% of Black business owners have closed their doors due to the pandemic, others have experienced unprecedented growth and advancement due to an increase in support for Black businesses and, in fewer cases, a shift to more profitable business models as needed to...
