Black Enterprise Magazine July/August 2018 Issue

So you’ve got it going on: You’re a professional woman who gets up every day, works hard and looks great doing it. It doesn’t matter what industry and in what capacity, you want to be sure that whatever you’re involved in is a success—or at least working toward it.
