My partner Rachel of Rachel O Beauty and I had a wonderful time in NYC at the 2nd stop of our Let’s Talk Mom2Mom Beauty conference presented by Creme of Nature last weekend. We were touched so deeply by how open and selfless the moms were.
The morning brunch, catered by Hot ‘N Heels Catering Co was delicious and the conversation was entertaining. We sat amongst 2o women discussing how to effectively build a digital brand from the ground up.
During our mompreneur workshops there were lots of questions around juggling your own business and family. Rachel and I shared our stories and the challenges we face. But in the end it all comes down to support and scheduling.
During the natural hair workshop emotions were high as we talked about the challenges we face as mothers to rebuild our own identity after wearing our hair relaxed for so long and the impact this has on our daughters. Several moms were in tears as they shared their struggles with their daughters and how they view their natural hair.
It was very important to Rachel and I when organizing this tour that we partner with local women to participate in our vendor market place. Check out these amazing small black businesses.
