“Amazing things happen when women help other women.” This quote resonates with me so much as I am blessed to have the opportunity to work in an industry that I love with inspiring women. In this blog post, I would like to share some of the latest news of my tireless, dedicated, and girl-boss clients!
This Women’s History month, I had the opportunity to work with ShySpeaks on her latest music video. She is a talented lyricist and American hip hop/spoken word artist from Dallas, Texas. Her new music video “Wings” features the entire DeSoto Eagles Girls Basketball program, highlighting the back to back Champion varsity team. Checkout the press release.

Another boss woman I’m proud to represent is Teja Smith, the founder of Get Social, a social media agency that only employs women of color and, is behind some of the biggest social justice non-profits like Rock The Vote and She The People. She has placed both brands as the leading organizations facilitating a successful election in 2020. Her work with foundations and organizations across the country has had an impact on the ongoing pandemic, voting rights, climate justice, and criminal justice reform. She is the only Black woman whose agency specifically looks to move social justice causes forward in the digital space. I’d like to congratulate her because aside from running her own company, she’s expecting a new born in May! That’s a real superwoman.
Speaking of moms, you have to check out Hey Carter! Books by Dr. Thomishia Booker. She is not only a wife and mother, but also a licensed therapist. She earned a Masters in Social Work and Doctorate in Education Counseling Psychology, spending the early part of her career working in Early Childhood Mental Health. Her latest book, “Fros, Braids, Fades and Weaves” was released on National Haircut Day. The book focuses on celebrating the different hairstyles of young Black boys. Read more about it here.
Lastly, my client, Charlene Legend, co-founder of The Plug ATL, an award-winning digital media group is a true example of resilience. After 16 years of marriage, 5 beautiful children, Charlene, together with her husband Kalief Legend, decided to expand their partnership into a family-owned digital production. Charlene’s background as a celebrity makeup artist has earned them high-profile clients. However, their success didn’t come easy, as the couple have had their share of major life challenges. From overcoming Kalief’s cancer to being robbed of over $100,000 in production equipment. Kalief and Charlene Legend have bounced back beautifully. Read The Hype Magazine's interview on how they overcome such challenges and what their company has to offer.
