Kela Walker, Series Host of Madame Noire's "She's The Boss"

Most recently I have bounced between a new fabulous job in the industry that I love most (Hair), and my final thesis project before graduating with a Master’s degree in Public Relations. My last project happens to be on the brand which I am currently working for, which I am beyond excited about. Today, while doing research on the history of African-American hair care enterprises, I came across some amazing videos that were posted to Madame Noire, a blog that I subscribe to on Facebook, and frequent occasionally.

The videos, which are part of an interview series titled “She’s The Boss” that the creators of the blog started to showcase the stories and accomplishments African-American businesswomen and entrepreneurs, are phenomenal! So much so, that I had to share them with my readers… or those of you that are left. Lol  (I’m so sorry y’all!!)

Please check out each one of them if you can, yes, even if you are not African-American. They are inspiring for any human being that aspires to do something special with their purpose and talents in life. In addition, they represent a little bit of everything, for everyone. From music lovers, to fashion, to public relations, to business, to sports… You name it, these women are LIFE!!!!

Words of Wisdom: You Have The Power To Be Self-Made & Self-Paid!

I am a woman who came from the cotton fields of the South. From there I was promoted to the washtub. From there I was promoted to the cook kitchen and from there I promoted myself into the business of manufacturing hair goods and preparations. . . . I have built my own factory on my own ground… I got my start by giving myself a start… There is no royal flower-strewn path to success. And if there is, I have not found it for if I have accomplished anything in life it is because I have been willing to work hard.
