#cosmoprof thoughts / fun quick trip to Vegas to celebrate black hair brands and distributors with @curlbox + check out the lastest innovations coming out in beauty. // no makeup —> skin by @mrozeessentials
Life is hard. Spend time working with people you enjoy being around. Celebrate all your wins like they could be your last. Say thank you. Don’t let them put you in a box. // our time here is short. Make waves today.
Excited to share that we recently closed a 6.5M Series A led by @googleventures! Raising this round was hands down the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Many tears, broken relationships, sleepless nights from stress (all with needing to walk into our office everyday with a smile on my face)! This 💰 means so much to our growth and innovation to become a media tech company our community can rely on. Read my internal memo to the team explaining the raise and what’s next for @blavityinc // can’t wait to celebrate with our fam this weekend! // thank you to @poetryaaron and Jeff for holding down the company and signing up to continue to do the impossible
Yesterday we introduced our corporate brand @blavityinc to the world// Curious how we’ve grown so fast? Not really sure if Blavity is a blog or just a twitter handle🤷🏽♀️? Didn’t know we created @afro.tech?! Over the next few weeks we’ll be going behind the scenes at @blavityinc // you’ll see life at our small startup, learn about our mission, and meet the amazing individuals I get to work with everyday. Stay tuned and go follow @blavityinc ! More announcements soon🤓😈. #startuplife
Solo Vacation = reading biographies and leadership books, painting, making lists, naps and #robelife // here was my meditation for the day from Steve Jobs: “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become."
