Check Out These #BGFlyMom Entrepreneurs!
Our moms do it all. They protect us, guide us when they can and love us unconditionally. A #BGFlyMom does that and then some. She can also be an entrepreneur who doesn’t work your traditional 9-5 job, but rather runs her own business on her own time. Mother’s Day is here! So let’s give a shout out to all of the moms who are about their family and their business. You can run down the list of “mompreneurs” and check out their pages for more information on their websites and products. 1.) Meet Yolanda Renee, she is a content creator, YouTuber, and influencer, located in Maryland.
“I am a Black Girl, I'm Fly and most importantly I am a Mom! I'm honored to be featured because being a Mommy is the most important role in my life. Myself and daughters, Taylor and Skylar definitely stay fly! Ha ha! We have so much fun with fashion & hair. They are like mini-mes! But besides the girlie stuff I pride myself in organically teaching my girls how to be mini entrepreneurs. They see everything I do from graphics, t-shirt design, filming, photography, events & more! I include them as well. By the time they're teenagers all of this will be second nature to them.”

“I am a fly mom because I never let motherhood compromise my style and that is with all facets of my life. With whatever I do, whether it be from my work or simply getting dressed; I do it all with style and grace because I know my daughter is watching and I want to always be the best example for her. Doing all things with poise, grace and with a Boss mentality is why I'm a Fly mom!”
