Janice Bryant Howroyd

The only thing I wish to be applauded for is simply for being another woman building a great business

This week for #BlackBusinessMonth we are honoring the amazing success of Janice Bryant Howroyd, founder and CEO of ACT-1 Group. Howroyd is the first black woman to own a billion-dollar company, building from scratch what is now the largest woman-minority-owned staffing agency in the US. From humble beginnings to millionaire status, Howroyd's presence in the business world has revolutionized female success one glass ceiling at a time!
