President of Onyx Woman Network Hosts Soiree for Business Women


Magazine for women looking for easy to implement strategies and practical tips to start and grow a business.
Ola Jackson, Founder of Home Girl, CEO, and President of OWN: Onyx Woman Network, media for women of color.

Pittsburgh, PA ( - As the recession continues and health care is debated nationwide, much has been made of the challenges that small business owners face in these challenging economic times. Home Girl, CEO, an organization committed to creating and sustaining a supportive network where women of color can find answers and inspiration in their business endeavors, is bringing their second networking soiree to Atlanta.

On Thursday, August 27th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Downtown Atlanta from 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm, Home Girl, CEO will host a Networking Soiree designed to provide a venue for women who are looking for easy-to-implement, practical strategies to advance their business goals. Held in conjunction with Atlanta-Based organization Camp Girlfriend, another women's support network, the event will feature informal discussions with a focus on how to leverage your relationships no matter what the economic situation.

Attendees will also hear from women who have made it against the odds by overcoming obstacles in turbulent times. Founder Ola Jackson, who is also the publisher of Onyx Woman magazine, a business publication for women of color, will share how coping with raising an autistic child became a motivating factor in her decision to be the boss of her career and business. "Flexibility and control," says Jackson is what led her to build what is now an 18-year-old business that is dedicated to helping other women start their own enterprises and enhance their quality of life.

That business is OWN: The Onyx Woman Network. The Onyx Woman Network is a media outlet targeting women of color. Through her network she creates various media venues to get her message across to women of color. They include television, an upcoming online radio show, a social network and special events.

This is the second time that Home Girl, CEO founder Ola Jackson has hosted a business event in Atlanta as a way of reconnecting with some of the over 1100 members of her social networking site. Attendees are encouraged to bring information about their businesses so that they can share experiences, solutions and strategies as a way of pooling resources and discovering ways to leverage their relationship.

Jackson, whose book, Home Girl, CEO is scheduled for release this winter says, "Aspiring business owners need some motivation, inspiration and encouragement. They need access to the type of people who can talk about how they made it through the tough times. They need to know that tough times don't last...tough people do. You never know when an opportunity is right around the corner. Thanks to the support of some sisters and some sisterfriends I was able to see my son grow along with my business. I am so glad I wasn't forced to sacrifice on either."

Upcoming activities for Home Girl, CEO include membership in the Home Girl, CEO Society(TM), an e-newsletter, teleclasses, and more events.

You can register online to attend the Atlanta event, or call (412) 731-5159. Find out more at: You can also visit their other sites at:, or email them at:
