While progress has been made in recent years, historically, it has been more difficult for women to establish themselves in business compared to men. However, businesswomen have a lot of potential power and the capacity to greatly affect development and change in their industries and communities. Women-owned enterprises are more prevalent than ever and make a substantial economic contribution. In the United States alone, women-owned firms employ more than 9 million people and produce $3 trillion in revenue, according to a 2020 American Express analysis.
When women thrive in business, they dismantle stereotypes and open doors for subsequent generations of women to follow in their footsteps and excel in their fields, much like the women listed below in this article who have excelled in their fields and are serving as an inspiration for many!

Latasha used her close call with death as inspiration. She was committed to realizing her ambition of starting her own business. Latasha McRae established Peeks Cosmetics on the principle that everyone should feel and look attractive and not be constrained by a single personality.

Nancy Twine is the founder and CEO of Briogeo, a natural and sustainable hair care brand. She founded the company in 2013 after noticing a lack of natural and effective hair care options for women with textured hair.

She launched Briogeo with just six products and has since grown the company to a multimillion-dollar business, with its products being sold in over 1,500 retailers worldwide, including Sephora, Ulta, and Dermstore.
