This month we are celebrating women's history month Wrapaloc style! We want to honor an amazing woman who is a personal inspiration to our founder. We are so excited to share how Madam C.J. Walker has been a creative inspiration, innovative trailblazer, and entrepreneurial role model for Sistah Nandi.
The voice/spirit of Madam C.J. Walker encouraged me to “Move, move right now!” on taking my vision and idea of the Wrap-A-Loc hair styling tool to the mass market. I read and watched everything I could find on the life of Madam. I was obsessed with knowing her life and journey as a successful entrepreneur. Her teacher and mentor, Annie Malone, is also one of my Sheroes.
Since being obedient to the Spirit of Madam, doors unbelievably have opened for me on my journey to making Wrap-A-Loc products a world-known brand. Here are five of my favorite quotes from Madam C.J. Walker that have been inspirational for me as a woman and entrepreneur.
"Whatever success I have attained has been the result of much hard work and many sleepless nights."
"If I have accomplished anything in life, it is because I have been willing to work hard."
"I am not satisfied in making money for myself. I endeavor to provide employment for hundreds of the women of my race."
“Having a good article for the market is one thing, putting it properly before the public is another.”
"I had to make my own living and my own opportunity. But I made it!"
