Odyssey Media To Host 3rd Annual “IN THE BLACK” Tour, October 30 – November 15

For the third consecutive year, the tour is part of The Coca-Cola Company’s 5by20 initiative. This national tour has repeatedly empowered thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs to launch their businesses, across every industry. And, it is in this spirit that IN THE BLACK returns to Houston, Texas providing free registration to over 150 women, thanks to the generosity of The Coca-Cola Company.

“We know that women are the pillars of our communities. We strongly believe in investing in women to foster economic growth and sustainable development,” said Lori George Billingsley, Vice President of Community Connections at The Coca-Cola Company. “We are proud to support women entrepreneurs by partnering with Odyssey Media’s In The Black Tour, a program that empowers women to build businesses, support their families and shape their communities.”

Linda Spradley Dunn, CEO and Founder of Odyssey Media is quoted as saying, “Harvey has been especially difficult for Black and Latina small business owners and it has discouraged many who wanted to start a business. Our sisters need us, and we will be there! We will customize the program and focus on where women can get immediate help as well as what other Odyssey women around the world can do to help.”

In addition, attendees also get to experience products from sponsor Coty, Inc., in the IN THE BLACK beauty stations, where they can transform their image using popular products, including Rimmel, Clairol, Sally Hansen and Covergirl.

This national tour returns featuring local business women in Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and Houston. Featured speakers include; Denise Hamilton, Founder & CEO of Watch Her Work; Melanie Elturk, Founder & Co-owner of Haute Hijab; Sharmeen Hawkins, businesswoman who owns over 15 franchises; Mikki Taylor, author and Essence Magazine Editor-at-large; Kelli Fisher and Tana Gilmore, also known as “The Matchmaking DUO” and Lisa Price, Founder of Carol’s Daughter.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
