Observations of an Invisible Woman

Archive for the tag “black entrepreneur”

Introducing: Shaquanda Mattox of Shaquanda ProInc

This young, ambitious African student, not only gets a good grades, but she has her own creative company.

I’m an ambitious young woman trying to make it through school. I go to dccc full time because I am a graphic designer. It’s what I do and what I love. I do it for multiple reasons. One reason is i am hoping my small business will help me pay for school. Another reason would be that I love being creative. I would say i have been in business since December 2nd, 2012, my 18th birthday. I’m working on my LLC even as we speak.

Black is beautiful

Not only are graphic designs and art her specialty, but she also creates business cards! If only I had found her 3 months ago, I would have never ordered from a European company! This very talented young woman can help you design any art/creative project you need. Please contact her for more information.

When I took a look at what she has to offer, I thought to myself, “If she’s doing this now, at age 18, can you imagine what she’ll be capable of at 20? At 30?”

Please support her growing efforts at black liberation. When you purchase from us and us only, you build wealth and independence.

My New Children’s E-Book

I just published a new e-book for black children!

 

 

{https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/243664}

It stars a ten year old girl named Samoya. She gets unfortunate news and must learn how to persevere through struggle and heartache…all with the help of her magical Teddy. Black children’s books were not a “hot item” when I was growing up. In fact, all the books I’ve read and had access to were from white females for white females. Remember this ladies?

When I became conscious of how these images hurt our children, I decided to take a stance and aspired to write books for our black family. I’ve been dreaming since childhood about publishing my own novel. Writing is my passion and it has always helped me to purge and understand this crazy life we’re in. In this novel, Samoya, finds herself heartbroken with “real-life” news and she must face adversity and learn the power of faith.

I want to thank all my dedicated readers who have supported me from day one. But there are a few who have warranted special thanks. HungLikeJesus who gave me great advise and links on self-publishing. Onitaset and Ron who gave me links to black owned businesses/ small business associations. And Sanctified Brother who was the first one to mention if money is an issue, e-books may be the way to go.

Thanks guys.

And my family for the love and support. Thank you.

Hope you and your children enjoy the book.
