Happy Small Business Saturday to all my fellow artisans & entrepreneurs. 

Shout out to you for all of your hard work over the year and the prep you put into this day alone. I’ve learned while building Taila.Made  that it takes time for people to see your vision. You spend a majority of your time being the only one that truly believes in the bigger picture.  Which is why when people show support through shopping or sharing your craft – it means everything.

Sistas start businesses to create opportunities for themselves, to support their families and to serve the community. Some people sleep on our abilities, and are surprised when our ventures succeed.  Black Girl Magic is real & is the result of closed doors, numerous nos, and our relentless determination to make shit work.

This knowledge is why every chance I get I support a sista in business. I believe in them the same way I believe in myself and want us all to win. I encourage you to spend money with brands that believe in and look like you. If you’re not in the position to purchase, and then share this list with friends, it’s the community support that makes small businesses successful.
