May 10th is National Small Business Day, and here at Women Employed, we are proud of the work we have done to assist women entrepreneurs in rethinking how they look at running a business. Through our Women’s Entrepreneurship Hub (WE Hub), we are providing Black and Latina/x women small business owners with options, resources, and tools to take their businesses from ideas and side hustles to pathways to economic freedom. Since launching the WE Hub September of 2022, we have helped over 400 women successfully launch and/or build on existing businesses. And with Black women being the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs, we have no plans of stopping anytime soon.

This Small Business Day, we want to highlight four Black Mompreneurs (who also happen to be WE Hub users) from the organization, Hustle Mommies. Created by founder, Ariel DeNey Rainey, Hustle Mommies provides inner city moms with resources to advocate for their families and communities. For more than a year, Women Employed (WE) has partnered with Hustle Mommies by attending and judging pitch competitions, assisting women with registering for WE Hub, and providing mentorship to budding entrepreneurs, showing them that with the right support, community, and resources, their vision of success is attainable.

So, whether they are elevating the voices of Black mothers who reside in underserved communities, helping women regain their confidence and rediscover their beauty, supporting and empowering single mothers, or assisting individuals in investing and home ownership, here are four Black Mompreneurs you should know.

Quinisha Perry — Posh Obsession Hair

Born and raised in Chicago’s Englewood community, Quinisha Perry has always been passionate about changing people’s lives. Growing up, she witnessed women lose their confidence and joy due to hair loss―something that Quinisha has even experienced herself following a cancer diagnosis in 2022. Wanting to do something to help women rediscover their confidence and beauty, she founded Posh Obsession Hair. The luxury hair line doesn’t just sell hair extensions and wigs but helps women and young girls embrace their femininity.

What sets the Posh Obsession apart from other hair lines is how they pay it forward. Since launching, Quinisha has donated wigs to cancer patients, participated in back-to-school events for the kids, given away over a 100 book bags filled with school supplies, raised money for a mother who lost everything in a house fire, and sent one lucky young lady off to prom through a prom giveaway.

Posh Obsession Hair offers a low to no out of pocket cost, allowing clients the option of purchasing wigs through their health care provider. Knowing the pain of losing one’s hair, Quinisha empathizes with those under her care by assisting them in reclaiming a sense of normalcy and rediscovering their beauty. Because at Posh Obsession Hair, they are fighting this battle together. To learn more, visit
