Happy Women’s History Month!!!!

So what’s going on Mantra?!

Every year for Women’s History Month I practically do something magical to celebrate my feminine ingenuity, and this year is of no exception. Actually, this year I think I may have topped out… (NOT)…LOL But, I have totally amazed myself once again.

First, did you know that there is a 90% Wealth gap amongst Black American Women? Only 5% of Black Women are entrepreneurs and White men are 24 times more likely to own their own business than Black women. Only 20% of Black businesses receive funding and at higher interest rates, than whites. What’s even more astounding is that Black Women are still the most educated class in America! Also, 17% of Black Women are currently starting new businesses! That is compared to 10% of White Women and 15% of White Men. So, Black Women are Skilled, Educated, and highly motivated in the area of entrepreneurship but are not given equal opportunity to succeed.

So, what I have decided to do is to put my illustrator, coding, and developing skills into play. I am fostering an educational platform by way of 10,000 NFTs called Gen Goddesses and with the help of The Loose Woman’s Sanctuary to address the racial inequality of Black Women in business by setting up decentralized foundations within the Metaverse. I am launching innovative workshops that will educate Black Women Business owners on Decentralized Finance (DeFi), investing in cryptocurrency, and how to achieve financial success within this new crypto-universe by monetizing existing skills. Also, the Gen Goddesses NFT collection has some pretty rare qualities. For example, 60% of the profits will help fund the new wave of Black Women Tech-preneurs!

My motto for this project is, “If we cannot achieve complete financial independence within the physical realm, we as Black Women are more than qualified in achieving it in the Ether Universe!”

Anyhoo, Happy Happy Women’s History Month!!!!!

Here’s a peek at the Gen Goddess NFT project and keep a lookout for upcoming announcements and events.


How I created my first NFT for Sale!

Yay! I finally dipped again in the NFT pool! I created an NFT for sale and cross-marketed at the same time! I’m kind of genius like that..lol

A year ago I published a children’s book, Shades of YOU, 100 shades of Black, which is an essential color therapy book for building self-pride for children and to change the definition of the color “BLACK” (Check out the Shades of YOU book page for more information)

As a promotion for the book, I created artwork that would be used to market the book and give more insight into its purpose. Well, COVID-19 put a stop to gallery shows and public viewings and I really couldn’t figure out how to re-market the book, until now.

*The colors chosen in the book and (SOY) artwork were selected by picking true colors taken from the photos of a variety of skin tones of African descendants from around the globe.

NFTs for ART? NEATO!!!

I created my first NFT for art today…I’ve been into crypto for awhile and love the digital market, I think it’s pretty freaking awesome that there is expansion for artists and creatives to market their work within the digital currency world.

Check out my SOY (Shades of YOU) installation on OpenSea…it’s a unique way I’m launching my children’s book “Shades of You, 100 Shades of Black” and creating new opportunities for mental expansion (LOL)..a couple of headaches too. I’m still learning about NFT market so my expectations aren’t much…it’s a lot of fun though.
