&#8220;A BOSS is not about how many followers you have but how many leaders you create.”
If you haven’t heard about this sistah shame on you! Let me break it down what this beautiful woman does and represents. Cameka Smith established BOSS (Bringing Out Successful Sisters) back in 2009 and already she has been named by Forbes.com as one of the Top 10 Entrepreneurial Websites for Women. BlackEnterprise said this site is one to follow on Twitter. Her organization brings entrepreneurial women together to share their stories, network and just support one another in this hectic world where women do not always have each others’ back. It provides education, information and resources for its members.
Cameka also has worked with the Susan G. Komen organization, Bright Pink, the National Cervical Cancer coalition and local/national HIV/AIDS organizations.
Any woman interested in building their own brand in some sort of business or have a business already up and running however they want to take it to a higher level this is a great place to stop and get a membership. You have to spend money in order to make money so don’t look at the prices and scrunch up that forehead of yours or fix your lips to say, ‘damn, she trippin if I’m payin’ all of that for a little membership.’ This is a positive movement for sistahs. You never know, you may create a life long business or/and personal relationship with someone you probably would never have met unless you became a member of this foundation.
Here are the 3 memberships offered at www.thebossnetwork.org and a snippet of what is offered within each one:
- Pinkcard Cost: $60. Allows you to promote your products, advertise your services, get special discounts, etc.
- Blackcard Cost: $120. This gets you a listing in the business directory, post your blogs and network.
- Business Account Cost $500. This gets you a featured article, your own business logo put out there, homepage advertisements, access to promote your products/services, etc.
Just last year Cameka launched Project BOSS which is a mentoring program to connect professional women with youth organizations. Go ‘head mami, do your thang! Visit www.thebossnetwork.org to get to know everything she and her organization do and don’t forget to tell your friends? Lets spread positivity not negativity!
Peace and luv!
