Here is a great opportunity for you to get out and network if you're in the Chicago area. The Black Women's Expo is being held in Chicago during the weekend of April 7-9, 2017. The event is being put on by MGPG Events, Inc. and it looks like Walgreens is one of their major sponsors.
Entertainment lined up for the event includes music star, K. Michelle and Sevyn Streeter. Here's a quote from their website, "Now in our 23rd year, The Black Women’s Expo presents an array of dynamic speakers and celebrities in seminar sessions, top musical artists on our main stage…and a lively marketplace for corporations and small business exhibitors to engage with the powerful and growing African American consumer!"

Music superstar, Lenny Kravitz is being a great example for entertainers by starting his own design firm. Kravitz Designs is a company that designs various artistic pieces for the home and office.
Celebrities are in a unique position to start and run businesses as they often will have the resources to either self fund their start-ups or have a network of high net-worth people who can invest.
Kravitz, who is the son of Roxie Roker of the Jeffersons fame, recently sat down for an interview about his design business.
We congratulate Kravitz on making this leap and encourage other celebrities to also use their fame and resources to create business opportunities for themselves and for others.
The Black business community is hurting from a lack of funding sources and efforts such as this will only help foster the spirit of business ownership in our communities.
