The BOSS Network’s “Ladies That Lead Tour” Makes Stop in Houston
About 150 entrepreneurs and business women gathered for a night of enrichment and inspiration at The BOSS Network’s “Ladies That Lead Tour” series presented by Prudential, which featured the notable supermodel Beverly Johnson.
Cameka Smith, founder of The BOSS Network, a former Chicago Public Schools educator, made a tour stop in Houston on Wednesday night to connect women of color that are entrepreneurs and professional women who are in need of support and resources for their small businesses.
The boss herself, Smith, found that her defining moment was when she was laid off in 2009 from her teaching position, which eventually opened up doors for her to start her own company and to create her own legacy, The BOSS Network. The moniker, BOSS, stands for Bringing Out Successful Sisters, which connects an online network of over 57,000 professional women, and for the past six months the website has been listed in Forbes Magazine as one of the “Top 10 Career and Entrepreneurial” sites.
