You have to keep your eyes on the prize, whether that's running a business or rearing a child

This week, #BlackBusinessMonth honors Cathy Hughes as our #BlackWomanBusinessOwner. Hughes is one of the wealthiest self-made African-American women in the US as the creator of Radio One media company. The rise of Radio One is an amazing story of Hughes' dedication to the success of her business. Even as a single mother she continued to push to achieve her dream. Her influence within the world of radio broadcast created a safe space for women of color to succeed without barrier.
