Houston, TX — Long-time entrepreneur and author, Gwen Richardson, has just released her new children’s book, Boss Women: Seven African-American Women Who Built Their Businesses From the Ground Up. The book features seven African-American women who started their businesses by themselves or as co-founders with family members. Some of the enterprises are relatively new, while others have been established for decades.

Richardson, who has been twice nominated for NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Literary Work, wants to inspire children to seek entrepreneurship as a career path.

“Children need to learn about and get to know African-American women, and men, who have built successful businesses and who can inspire them to excel,” she said.

The businesswomen profiled in this book are Janice M. Adams (JMA Solutions), Valerie Daniels-Carter (V&J Holding Companies), Bea Dixon (Honey Pot), Janice Bryant Howroyd (The ACT One Group), Garnetta Sanders (Neta Scientific), Janell Stephens (Camille Rose Naturals), and J.C. Sykes (90 Degree Construction).

Boss Women uses poetic phrasing to make it easier for children to read and understand. While reading each poetic profile, children will be able to see themselves in these women’s successes and dream big dreams for the future. The book is also a motivational tool for adults who are seeking encouragement on their entrepreneurial journeys.

Richardson is the author of 13 books, including Boss Women, and is a graduate of Georgetown University. She resides in Houston with her husband, Willie.

The book is available on Amazon in paperback and on Kindle, and autographed copies may be purchased from the book’s website at BossWomenTheBook.com
