Hundreds of female entrepreneurs convened at the beautiful Biltmore in Atlanta for the Ladies Who Brunch Atlanta “Royal Tea Affair” created and hosted by Dayira Jones and Bianca Rush. The star studded panel featured Kandi Burruss (Grammy Award Winning Artist, serial entrepreneur and Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta), Cynthia Bailey (The Bailey Agency, supermodel and Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta), Necole B. (entertainment blogger), Emily B. (celebrity wardrobe stylist, shoe designer and Vh1’s Love & Hip Hop New York) and Latasha Wright (celebrity makeup artist and cosmetic line creator).
The day was filled with words of empowerment as the panelists shared their wisdom and experiences about business and entrepreneurship. Attendees also donated nearly 100 pairs of shoes, collected on-site for the Ladies Who Brunch Atlanta community service partner, 40 Girls and Some Shoes.
[quote]”Everyone that works for me is very knowledgeable about what they do. They were once fans of the site. I also like to give opportunities to people in small towns who otherwise wouldn’t be able to work in the entertainment industry. Make yourself irreplaceable.” – Necole B.[/quote]
[quote]”If you want to start a business in an industry you’re not familiar with, partner with someone who knows that industry well. With my boutique TAGS, I partnered with someone who knows how to run a store. I had the visibility and resources. We made it happen together.” – Kandi[/quote]
[quote]”As a celeb make-up artist among millions of make-up artists I do these things: 1. Be professional. 2. Be on-time 3. Speak when spoken to. 4. Always act like their security guard. Thankfully my clients have been loyal and they send referrals to me.” – Latasha Wright[/quote]
[quote]”I know exactly why I’m successful. I pray about what God wants me to do…then I do it. True, I have a million followers on IG because I’m on reality tv. But without prayer and faith, none of it would work.” – Emily B.[/quote]
[quote]”You’re only as good as your team. Be willing to fire anyone who doesn’t follow the vision of your business. That’s just part of being the boss. I’m not that great at it, but I’m getting better.” – Cynthia Bailey[/quote]
