My major goal this year is to support black women and their businesses. These women are out here creating innovative and unique ideas.
#WomenSupportingWomen is more than a social media hashtag.
Recently, I noticed that women all over the world do not get recognition for their efforts.
Hence, we can show our support by patronizing and spreading the word out on social media.
