What's Your Business? (Be Featured on the 2012 BBWO 50 Women Entrepreneurs List)

SistaSense In Print Special Edition Magazine - BBWO 50 Fabulous Women EntrepreneursFor the past two years I have annually showcased the BBWO50 highlighting some of the wonderful women entrepreneurs of color on our ever growing network. (View 2011 list here).

I normally personally go through all the members and go through a review / selection process and wanted to do something a little different this year. While its easy to spotlight our top members, sometimes other amazing entrepreneurs get lost in the mix so for 2012 I have decided to add an additional means of reviewing members.


If you would like to submit your business for review please do the following: Using the comment box below post your business name, url, and a 2-3 sentence description.


That's it!And be sure to let you fellow BBWO Friends come here and submit their business for review!

BBWO Founder,

Valerie Patton

Silk Body Creme

My name is Valerie Patton.  I would like to submit my product that I created "Silk Body Creme."  I created Silk   in 2006 because I had a need of relief from dry skin.  So after some trail & error I created Silk.  Silk isn't a lotion it’s a creme therefore it stays on your skin & keeps you smelling fragrant longer than a lotion. Silk is all natural & leaves your skin feeling soft, silky& smooth while moisturizing & condition your body.  Silk is a great accessory for any wardrobe.  Wrap yourself in Silk!
