Avalon Sun WOMANtrepreneur Column

This month we are celebrating Women’s History Month!

Every year March is designated Women’s History Month by Presidential proclamation. The month is set aside to honor women’s contributions in American history.

That being said, do you know who the first African-American was to host her own TV show? No, it wasn’t Oprah!

Jazz pianist and singer Hazel Scott made history by being the first African-American woman to host her own television show. The Hazel Scott Show aired for 15 minutes, three times a week, first in New York City and then nationally.

Women are contributing great things and making History everywhere! Here within Avalon Park there are 34 women owned businesses making History!
When asked how they contribute here is what these Women Owned Business in Avalon Park had to say:
“My business helps children and adolescents gain confidence positive self image.”
-Tkea Le Grande
Owner, Avalon Dance

“By creating and elevating branding materials for the clients I serve, these clients can in turn grow their own businesses and serve more people.”

-Julie Kostic
Owner, JK Creative

So, whether you know a WOMAN who is a business owner or not. Celebrate them and all the amazing things they are doing as a wife, girlfriend, best friend, mom, grandma, aunt, sister, cousin, etc. because everything little thing they do contributes to the History of Women!
