Founder Aisha Taylor Issah

Founder and CEO of Sistahs in Business Expo Aisha Taylor Issah has done it again with her second stop held in Philadelphia, PA. Women and young girls from all over came out to learn about being an entrepreneur and hearing it from the expertise themselves. Many successful sisters in business was on the panel to share their light and experiences which included:

 

 

Motivational Moment Speaker Nicole Doss CEO & Founder of Women of Prestige

Founder & Chairperson Urban One Cathy Hughes

On-Air Personality 100.3 WRNB-FM Radio One, Dyana Williams

Moderator of Superpower Panel Jean Baylor

Keynote Speaker Vivica A. Fox

From Minister to CEO of SIBExpo Aisha Taylor Issah told Industry Session why she wanted to create such an expo for women of color, here’s what she had to say…

“I really take approach that everything I do is of ministry. My sister and I own TAYLORmade Professional Career Consulting, which is a career consulting firm. I believe God has a few things for me to do. The expo was birthed from the challenges we have experienced from the other business {Taylor Made Consulting}. We always wanted to do expo’s but it was always too costly and not respective to service businesses. I wanted to create an expo geared to more small business; cost effective for your small business owners that was inclusive with both products and services.”

More the reason why when selecting a Keynote Speaker, the main criteria is that you have to be a successful sister in business. Not just any celebrity, but someone who can speak on how their experience as a woman of color have been and their expertise in owning a business. That’s why Aisha Taylor Issah selected Vivica A. Fox. An Actress, Producer, TV Host and now Author of Every Day I’m Hustling has much to share to so many sisters in business and those who are looking to one day entering entrepreneurship.
