August is National Black Business Month, and we’re celebrating Black-owned businesses owned by women. While Black-owned businesses should be in your regular shopping rotation year round, now is a time to intentionally reflect on where you spend your money. We’ve compiled a list of Black women-owned businesses to get you started. Scroll to learn more about each business, its founder, and their story.
Diana Morris, Clarity Coach
I am a clarity coach who creates a safe space for the uncomfortable journey of self-discovery by meeting you where you are, pinpointing your power, and helping you pivot into authenticity. Folks come to me when they’re in the middle of a transition, but aren’t quite sure what their next steps are–I help them figure it out through 1:1 programs, workshops, books, and online courses.

Embeaded Heart is a small business based out of Central Florida owned by Peggy Harris Singleton.

From beaded jewelry catering to men and women to our online retail there is sure to be something special that meets the eye for that someone who is special in your life.
