She is my inspiration, so I really wanted to do a tribute to Maya that night. We are going to have a little music and poetry going on, as well as speakers. There will be something for everyone no matter what industry they plan to embark on.”

The conference attracts both men and women, but Randle-Matthews focuses on helping African-American women succeed. The key according to Randle-Matthews is that women love themselves and build a strong foundation in order for success to take root. “The inner connection is how do you feel about yourself,” says Randle-Matthews “Because if you are loving and treating yourself right, then you are going to be able to go out there, be creative and implement those ideas.”
Attendees at Black Business Women Rock! Can expect an intensive day of learning and loving. Randle-Matthews will literally reach out and put her arms around her entrepreneurial sisters and guide them through the process of creative business success. There will also be topics like how to start a business, being a young entrepreneur, and how to pick the right location for a business. Randle-Matthews’ goal is to reach African-American women who are at any stage of their professional careers.
