Howroyd is the first Black woman to build and own a billion dollar company, and she as her upbringing to thank. “Some of my greatest lessons of my life in business came from my mom and dad, in my own home,” Howroyd exclusively tells JaGurl TV, “things that I bring into the board room where taught to me in my bed room growing up.”

Being named one of the richest self-made women in the world according to Forbes magazine, one would wonder how does she stay grounded through it all. “Sometimes we’re so busy doing our affirmations, we don’t give ourselves the quite space to receive our affirmations.” She continued, “For me, quite is very important because the world is real noisy right now. It’s not just about what you say to yourself, its about the time you allow yourself to say nothing and listen.”

The summit took place in Charolette, North Carolina at the Charolette Convention Center. It was created for aspiring and tenured entrepreneurs and leaders with the tools in their industries. Tickets for the 2023 International Leadership Summit are on sale now until April 4th.
