15. Published 4 guest blogs.
16. Invited our audience to contribute to blogs where we published their names and businesses.

How We Fostered Community This Year
Having community as an entrepreneur is super important. Therefore, we made extra efforts to foster community and networking this year. We:
18. Launched the YouTube Membership Program
19. Launched the She Boss Tribe on Facebook
20. Hosted several virtual meetups so small business owners could connect with their peers.

Thank you She Boss Talk and She Speaks Her Mind. The content, contributions, and collaborations that you lead have been valuable to me as a person and a female business owner. I’ve not only been able to take actionable steps with the messages shared but the blueprint that you’ve created. As a black business owner funds may not be as accessible, yet I’ve been blessed to attract them being connected with you. Keep sharing your story, it’s illuminating. Whether we post a reply or not, we’re watching, were changing, were growing. Thanks for being here! I needed to read this today. I’m more motivated to continue to take my business further to help heal individuals and communities heal through the arts.
