meagan ward and brittni brown

These young ladies (all in the 20s and 30s) are powerful women making major money moves as "girl bosses," walking by faith and influencing change in their communities. They are "WOKE" and are unapologetic about their faith or their stance on #blacklivesmatter. They are entrepreneurs building not just businesses - but empires.  All of them have that winning formula of "Detroit Grit"  - which is gusto and grind sprinkled with motor city magic.  I'm #girlcrushing on all of them!

Here's my 2020 List of 20 Powerful Millennial Detrot Women: 

Meagan Ward: Impact Leader in Women's Empowerment, Entrepreneurial Activist, CEO of Femology,  Detroit's first women's co-working space & Brand Strategist

I celebrate these amazing ladies.  Incidently, some went to the Big  CT (Cass Tech - probably 30 years after I graduated from there) ... some went to Michigan State [my daughter graduated from there two years ago], some are part of the Deltas, some are AKAs, some of them are besties with each, some of them are clients of one another, some have won awards together ... and  I love them all! I've known some since they were a baby; some since a teenager, some were interns, some just over the last few years.  They inspire me.  Beyond being an influencer on the 'gram,  these powerful women are living purpose and leaving legacy!  

I want to give them all an award and have them interview LIVE with me....and spotlighted in Speakers Magazine. I'm so proud of them... everyone of them have put God first in their lives, support other women and are all positive, beautful people - I know most of their parents - and I know they're proud of them too! Joy!
