'Women On The Move' Had An Inspiring Networking Event For Female Bosses
Women's History Month is coming to an end! Women Empowerment brand 'Women On The Move' had a panel of four African-American speakers talking about their struggles and what made them who they are today. These ladies included:
Rapper, Remy Ma - After serving 7 years in prison, Remy Ma thought that was it for her, no more rap career. But with the support of her loving husband, family and friends she was able to bounce back into the spot light as if she never left. Making ratings sky rocket on VH1's "Love and Hip-Hop New York". The most important thing that Remy Ma told the audience was she will always stay true to herself. Labels and publicist use to tell her how she should dress, talk and carry herself she never listened to them. Remy Ma learned from her mistakes and has changed for the better and rises above the negativity in her life.
Owner/blogger of Fashion Bomb Daily, Claire Sulmers - Who started her blog 10 years ago! and now has over 1 million followers on Instagram today. Summers website is now 1 of the top most influential styles sites in the world. In the panel she touched based on the struggles she had starting out. People would tell her fashion is not for you -- you can't get into this show or you can't work for this magazine. Her biggest challenge was getting access, but because she believed in herself and wouldn't give up. Claire Sulmers was able to achieve her dream and passion for her blog.
Brand Curator, Karen Civil - Karen Civil was able to expand her website to not only have traffic from fans in to learn about their favorite celebrities, but also for brands and companies that she happened to like. If it were a brand like Nike or Adidas, Civil was able to use her LinkedIn to find these people from those companies then she would follow them on Twitter. Civil would write posts about things relating to these companies of her interested and her marketing strategy was to tag people she met on LinkedIn to those posts. She was able to make a name for herself and she knew exactly what she wanted, not taking "no" for an answer.
and the Podcast owner of 'The Read', Crissle West. - Gave all the young women attending some great advice on supporting each other,
"keep the relationships you have with black women in your life very close to you, because there are very few people who can identify with you the way a black woman can, hold down other black women and support other black women..."
