"I want to say to every Negro woman present, don't sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them!" — Madame C.J. Walker

Madam C.J. Walker (1867–1919) was America’s first woman to become a self-made millionaire. Born four years after the Emancipation Proclamation, Ms. Walker became an entrepreneur out of necessity.

After experiencing severe hair loss, Ms. Walker began experimenting with home remedies until she discovered a formula that helped restored her hair. Soon she was selling her hair restoration products to Black women around the country. Ms. Walker ran several successful businesses, traveled the country giving lectures, and financially supported many social causes. She was that generation's Oprah.

As a person with over 25 years of experience in the workforce, I find great comfort in Ms. Walker’s life story. I have worked at some of the largest companies on Wall Street. But in this downsized global economy that doesn't count for much anymore. I can’t even get an appointment at an employment agency.

Fortunately, I’m not looking for a JOB (Just over broke). Like Ms. Walker, I have created businesses that work for me. Even in this sluggish economy there are ways to make a great living.
