When I was writing and editing for the fashion section at Everything Girls Love (EGL), I met some very interesting, hardworking young ladies. We all had similar goals, and we supported each other in reaching those goals. See some of the ladies below.
We all eventually left EGL to pursue our own endeavors, and one of the girls (Marsha Badger) became a fashion writer for one of the top, influential fashion blogs on the web – Fashion Bomb Daily. This popular blog, started by Claire Sulmers, attracts 2.4 million viewers per month and has been recognized by major publications such as Teen Vogue, Ebony Magazine and Black Enterprise!! Crazy huh?! What’s even crazier is that CHOKOLAT CREME’S FREE MIND TEE WAS FEATURED ON THE SITE AS THE BOMB PRODUCT OF THE DAY!!!! Marsha looked out for Chokolat Creme, and we can’t be more grateful!
You never know who you are meeting when you encounter different people. This is a prime example of why not only networking is essential but emitting positive vibes and treating people with courtesy and respect is even more important. I never knew the ladies I wrote with on a daily basis would turn into some women who would eventually make real power moves. I admired their hustler mentalities and thought they were some cool, stylish, and fun ladies to work with, and as a result I formed a relationship with them. I’m so glad I met them and cultivated a genuine connection with them – not for the resources but because we are like-minded women who love helping other women achieve their goals. This is a rare thing nowadays, and I’m blessed to say that I have met such women.
April (Chokolat Creme’s other half) and I are crazy happy and proud about this moment. When I called her after I got the notification, she hung up in my face lol! That is what we do when the other one calls with some crazy news (we are weird but it works for us lol).
Now it’s time to turn up the hustle and dig deeper.
But before we jump back on the grind, can we take 2 hours to bask in this wonderful moment, please (insert tired face here)????
