There is power in the Black dollar.

Being a small business owner is extremely difficult, and without ongoing support, many ultimately wind up either struggling or closing their doors altogether.

Did you know: A typical White household has 16 times the wealth of a Black household. – Forbes, 2014

The community of Black creatives is jam packed with talented individuals who are well-versed in many avenues as far as skin and hair care, clothing, design, accessories, and much more! It is without a doubt that one could shop Black businesses solely and have absolutely all of their needs met.

Did you Know:Minorities are a huge driver of holiday spending. #Billions

Just recently, a Nielsen Report was released confirming what we already knew regarding the influence and buying power of Black women.

With the holidays coming up, I began compiling a list of some of my favorite women Black-owned & operated businesses that I have been stalking following and frequenting for quite awhile. Moreover, I am so excited for Small Business Saturday and beyond! Are you ready?

Here are just a few businesses that should be on your radar…I really and truly am amazed by the creativity in these products!
