I am looking for BIPOC women entrepreneurs who have owned their own company for at least 6 months to 1 year and have a story to share. These companies can be located anywhere in the world as long as they are at least 51% woman-owned enterprises.
If you are a BIPOC woman business owner or know a woman in business who should be featured, be sure to let me know. In fact, I am making it easy for you to cut and paste the interview questions and criteria into an email and respond.
Here are the questions for the BIPOC Woman in Business Interview. Feel free to answer them, and send your responses to MYDIVINEBEAUTYOBSESSION@GMAIL.COM with “BIPOC Women in Business Interview” in the subject line. In addition to the interview responses (please keep questions intact and include in the BODY of the email), send either a *LINK to your photo or as a jpeg or gif attachment. Do not send the interview as an attachment. All attached documents are discarded. Photos are accepted as an attachment or a link.
All responses should be submitted unformatted (no bold, italic, all caps, etc).
