We all can fall in love with a multi-use product. Granted, the owner of said products has the product education to match, then it’s heaven on earth. As the Ultimate Sponsor of our first annual Affirmation Summit, Aisha Crump, has been in the industry for over 12 years working behind the scenes. She’s done it all, from manufacturing to product development and after journeying from engineering and landing in the beauty industry, Aisha took a leap and started the Honey Baby natural hair and skin care brand. Aisha said launching a family brand was a unique concept, because there’s a little something for everyone. Now, her brand Honey Baby has made its way to the shelves of national retailers!
The essence of becoming is one that takes strength, courage and wisdom. Strength to do the work, courage to accept the journey and wisdom to make the best decision for yourself and those attached to you. Becoming is one of those unexplained things and many times you realize how far you come after you’ve reached your destination. It’s you being a partner to your own destiny and helping to manifest the YOU you see.

Most women have mornings and nights consisting of vigorous skin care routines to try and get that glow. For some, flawless skin comes naturally and for others it can be a challenge. If you're dealing with acne, you could find countless products, but what about other skin conditions like eczema. Tanisha Rankin decided to take control of her own skin journey and turned it into her business Mahogany Essentials. Made of all natural products, Mahogany Essentials in Upper Darby, PA gives women a natural way to care for their skin. Knowing what's in the product is key and these products look good enough to eat! We love that these hand-crafted products contain a little more glycerin than usual. A little moisture never hurt anybody! Let’s give it up for this skin care artisan and celebrate Tanisha as the Queen of velvety soft refreshed skin!
As a woman of color, the most frustrating thing is finding products in nude that fit our skin tone. The struggle ranges from finding the right foundation to tring to find the closest match in anything nude. Nadine Peisker said no more! Through her business Ownbrown UK Ltd in LONDON, Nadine transformed her personal solution into every woman of color solution. She is giving women of color an actual selection of nude in hosiery and lingerie. She’s has the Boss Babes who need nude for the workplace and she also has the Fierce Fashionistas who need to perfect their fit. That’s why we deemed Nadine to be Queen of the Nude.
Love and relationships should be simple, but WE ALL could conjure a story on how complicated they can get. We probably even share similar stories on situations, but how we handled it probably differs. Sometimes a cry session with a tub of ice cream doesn’t help. So what do you do? Talk about it. Better yet talk to Paula Lenard. Through her business Paula Lenard Counseling, Paula takes being a Psychotherapist to another level. She has a true passion for helping people, especially ones that struggle with relationships, and it shows. It takes a special person to make it their mission to connect with others on a positive level. That is why we have deemed Paula Lenard the Queen of Relationships.
When we feel good, we want to show if off! For some, this could mean increased instagram posts, increased selfie collection in your phone and/or increased time staring at yourself in the mirror. We all do it -- best outfit on and hair slayed to perfection. We dub this phenomenon THE BOOST!
In the case of Ashley Crews, we are here for it. Through her business HairVention, based in New Jersey, Ashley took advice from an old colleague and transformed her advice into an empowering, self-love based business, HairVentionZ. HairVentionZ is an on demand healthy haircare and wellness business, based in NJ traveling to NYC, and MD.

Whether it's in the shop or the comforts of your home, Ashley aims to slay your hair while educating. She prides herself on growing with her clients and just simply doing the best damn job possible!
We think Ashley Crews is the epitome of taking a concept and making it your own. We can get used to a stylist coming by to empower and transform our look. We see you GIRL and dub you the Queen of the natural boost!
Relationships are an important aspect of our social realm. It's a way to stay connected outside of ourselves. The saddest part is not knowing when and how to walk away from unhealthy ones. Through her business gmichelle, Michelle White from Atlanta, GA, ends her time as a bystander and becomes the ultimate advocate in relationship education. With extensive experience as a licensed social worker, clinical therapist and statewide trainer working with people who have survived interpersonal trauma, domestic violence and child abuse, Michelle understands how difficult it is to overcome the pain felt from unsafe relationships. We’re aware that we have sisters in domestic violence relationships, mentally abusive relationships and in emotionally abusive relationships. So that means we need to do more to show them they aren't alone and someone is there is help. Michelle’s web platform has resources, podcasts, downloads and an array of tools for guided meditation and ways to help you find a therapist. Her latest edition, “Self Explore, Self Restore: A Guided Self-Care Journal Created to Support Your Relationship with Yourself” By helping to create an environment for people to feel safe, we have deemed Michelle White as Queen of the Safe Space.
Sometimes when life happens, it really happens! As a human, we can only adjust along the way because quite frankly we can't prepare for everything. Courtney Pack decided to turn the tragic experience of her mother's passing into the beautiful creation of her business Beauty.Happiness.Healing LLC in Atlanta, Georgia. Realizing the lack of self care within herself, Pack created therapeutic products to encourage more self care and self love. Can we also mention that her products have the cutest names! In this crazy world we live in, you have to understand you're not alone sis. Mental stability, self care and self love are all necessary for strength and peace of mind. That's why we are deeming Courtney Pack as the Queen of Beauty.Happiness.Healing
