I had the most amazing weekend attending Power Day 2017 hosted by Christina Brown of Love Brown Sugar & Brown Girls Love. Let me just tell you. Christina is the ultimate boss. She is all things passionate, caring, women’s empowerment and her and her team can put on a damn good event.
The day was filled with panelists who are all bosses in their own right. We got to hear from Tonya Rapley (My Fab Finance), Nicole Sanchez (eCredit Hero) and Melissa Butler (The Lip Bar) to get the inside scoop on how to raise, save and budget the money you need to fund your dreams. Ty Alexander, Africa Miranda and Jessica Andrews chatted all things being an influencer and using your social popularity to pave the path for your own success and advance social good. Yoli Ouiya spoke on the importance of self-care for your mind, body and soul before business. The day ended with hearing from Tiffini Gatlin (Latched + Hooked), Mel Burgos (Rock Yo Rizos), Denequa Williams (LIT Brooklyn) and DJ Olivia Dope on pressing the reset button and how it changed their lives for the better. From failed business partnerships, pushing past haters and tragedy, to shedding of your old self, these ladies exemplified what it means to reset and start fresh in order to walk in their purpose.
There were also several up and coming brands on display founded by some very inspirational ladypreneurs. Some of the amazing vendors showcasing in marketplace at the event were LIT Brooklyn, a Brooklyn-based 100% soy wax candle company by Denequa Williams and lifestyle collection Beauty by Africa Miranda. There was even a hair styling bar hosted by Motions and a super cool 360˚ photobooth to capture all the fun.
My cup was so full after such an awesome day surrounded by so much magic and positivity to start 2017 off in high gear. I am super excited about Power Day 2018. If you missed out on this year’s Power Day, save the date for January 6, 2018 because it is coming back next year!
