Black Women Entrepreneurs

Black women are making huge strides in the business world. We
are really doing our thing! A few decades ago, black women comprised only a
small percentage of corporate executives in the U.S.
Early in 2009, Ursula Burns
become the first black female CEO of a Fortune 500 company, Xerox. For decades,
ongoing prejudices and glass ceilings for women, made it harder for black women
especially to excel in an arena that is largely dominated by white males.

Today, black women are charting their own course, often
choosing entrepreneurship over the corporate world, especially mothers looking
for greater flexibility and more time with their family. In fact, Black women
have been at the forefront of the recent growth of black-owned businesses and
become entrepreneurs at a faster rate than any other ethnic group.
 They’ve founded as many or more companies as
black men, and are quickly turning their passion into profits.

One of the things that has enabled black women, and women
everywhere, to step more boldly into the realm of entrepreneurship is the
accessibility of online start-ups. Running a business from home has never been
easier, and mompreneurs everywhere are taking advantage of this. You can too. Taking
care of your baby or toddler can be hard when you work outside the home. Starting
an online business gives you a great deal of flexibility and makes being a
working black
a lot less stressful. More importantly, you can live a life of
fulfillment, earning money doing what you love to do.
