As you know, GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is something anyone can do. At the ParentPreneur Foundation, my mission is to empower Black ParentPreneurs to be the best parent and entrepreneur possible, so they can leave a legacy… Continue reading Paying For Therapy For Black ParentPreneurs This Giving Tuesday
It’s been about three months since, in the middle of a pandemic, I launched the ParentPreneur Foundation to empower Black parents who are entrepreneurs, so they can leave a legacy for their beautiful Black children. We first announced a $50,000 seed grant from renowned venture capitalist, Brad Feld, and quickly awarded $10,000 in grants to… Continue reading In 3 Months We Have Positively Impacted The Lives Of Black ParentPreneurs
Good morning! Sharing an interesting and entertaining interview I just did with D-Tech.Fund about why I started the ParentPreneur Foundation. Enjoy!
Black folks, we love to celebrate the accomplishments of Black people from the past. Yesterday’s Google doodle is a perfect example of this.

And with a $50,000 founding… Continue reading The ParentPreneur Foundation Gives $10,000 To Ten Black ParentPreneurs
Recently I’ve been writing about a new foundation I am starting to empower ParentPreneurs. The foundation mission has evolved from something that would help all ParentPreneurs to being exclusively for Black ParentPreneurs. When I started talking about this it was purely aspirational and based on faith, but not anymore. This. Is. Happening.
A few months ago I announced I’m starting a foundation to give cash grants and other resources to parents who are entrepreneurs. I know lots of ParentPreneurs: Black, white, and Asian who are experiencing the unique challenges of starting a business while raising kids. It’s a different experience than the stereotypical-young-twenty-something, hoodie-wearing-white-kid in Silicon Valley… Continue reading Why My Foundation To Help ParentPreneurs Is For Black People Only
A few hours after learning of the senseless murder of another Black man at the hands of the police two nights ago, right here in Atlanta, I was sitting in my backyard doing what I like to do: drinking a glass of wine, smoking a cigar, and listening to music. It’s what I do-this time… Continue reading Karens Gone Wild, AGAIN. Next Time She Will Be In Bracelets.
