Hello, my name is Leola Anifowoshe and I am the Founder of the Texas Black Women’s Expo. I have over 25 years experience in business and my goal is to share some of that experience with you.
In addition to being the CEO and co-Founder of Nzuri Hair Care and Wellness Products, I am a Trichologist “Hair Loss Specialist” who diagnoses and treats scalp disorders. First, I want to thank each and every one of you for being a part of this life-enhancing event.
For those of you who do not know me, I am a Magnificent Black Woman and so are you. I often refer to myself as an American African simply because I am an American first, celebrating my African heritage.
I am a wife to Tessy Anifowoshe Sr., a mother of six children, and a successful business woman. At the age of 12, I began my own manufacturing of cleaning products while in grade school. With the determination to be successful in mind, I began evolving my entrepreneurial skills.
Over 30 years later, I am proud to have gained the wisdom in knowing how to grow a business through empowerment and adhering to the market. Today, I am the Creator and Co-Founder of Nzuri Hair Care and Wellness Products along with my husband of 23 years. As the CEO of Solutions Hair Restoration and Wellness Center in Stafford, TX, we provide hair restoration services and wellness protocols to people who want a holistic approach to feeling well.
My product line boasts upwards of 40 plus products in the hair care and wellness industry. We are currently in over 400 retailers around the country, with our largest being HEB and Walmart.com. Our products are located in every HEB beauty department, along with online sites such as Amazon and Sears. With this in mind, we ship our products worldwide to over 25 countries.
I am also the founder of one of the world’s most successful Natural Hair Shows, which retired in December 2015. After seeing thousands of women come through the doors of my events, I have found my calling in empowering Black Women to seek their highest potential in business.
Perhaps you wonder why my photo is so big? Simply because it is necessary. I want to encourage each of you to be BIG; Texas Big. Now is the time to stop shrinking down your power to be great.
I share my accomplishments with you to assure my qualifications and confidence in uniting women of all ethnicities. This year’s Texas Black Women’s Expo will embrace your innate talents and powers to also be a Magnificent Black Business Woman.
“It requires courage, strength, and tenacity to push through and get the job done.”
Love and Unity,
Founder of Texas Black Women’s Expo
