When blogger-turned-businesswoman Christina Brown launched her website, LoveBrownSugar.com in 2009, little did she know it would evolve into a game-changing digital destination with multiple spinoffs: BabyBrownsugar.com (launched in 2013) and BrownGirlsLove.com (launched in 2014).

Then in 2015 Brown fused her passions and expertise to launch Power Day, an annual networking event held each January for millennial Black women. The daylong event in New York City is filled with motivational panels and guest speakers dishing on their own personal and professional journeys and the many lessons they’ve learned along the way.

“It’s a day of networking, skill-building and empowerment for women of color,” says Brown. “We have honest conversations about building brands and businesses and we emphasize the importance of collaboration over competition.”

Ahead of this year’s Power Day on January 5, we caught up with Brown to learn more about the event and her own journey as a mompreneur.
