Kandi Burruss Creates Businesswoman Empowerment Seminar
Kandi Burruss has been a successful singer, songwriter, entrepreneur and reality star, now the star is helping other women tap into their greatest potential…
Via Reality Tea reports:
On April 11, Kandi will host “Empower” – The Businesswoman MasterClass – featuring speakers such as Mona Scott Young (the “genius” behind the Love & Hip Hop franchise) and several other female entrepreneurs from various fields.
Kandi says it’s long been a dream of hers to do an event like this. “Basically, in my group of friends, I’ve always been the one who pushed other friends. ‘We need to do this. You should do that!’ I liked giving advice and I helped a few of them make very lucrative decisions. And so they’re always saying, ‘Kandi, you should do a class!’ You can help other women. So I’m finally doing it!”
The entertainment-industry veteran, has never held a traditional job and Kandi hopes to inspire other women “Shark Tank style” to pursue their own ventures. “I just think any time you get a group of women who are like minded, everyone is ready to make money if you team up,” she told AJC.com‘s Rodney Ho. “Then you can do bigger and better things.”
Believing that her willingness to try new opportunities has been her key to success, Kandi never envisioned reality TV would catapult her career so far. “I didn’t think it would really change my life,” she admits.It was through the encouragement of another friend (and reality star), Toya Wright, that prompted Kandi to sign on to RHOA.
“If she hadn’t talked to me about that, I might not have been open to doing ‘Housewives,’ Kandi confesses. Despite some negativity, Kandi credits the show for being a tremendous boon to her career and profile. “It’s a great platform, basically free advertising. People see what I’m working on and they want to be a part of it,” Kandi acknowledges. “I’m thankful for the show, thankful for the fact I met my husband through it.”
