Michelle Williams visits Detroit, talks entrepreneurism

etroit received another visit from a Destiny’s Child alum this month, but music was not on the agenda for this trip.

A week after Beyonce slayed Ford Field, Michelle Williams made a stop at the Wright Museum to speak about entrepreneurism at the BOSS Network’s Ladies That Lead: An evening with Michelle Williams. Williams recently launched Believe at Home, her new line of bedding and home goods.

Crossing over from artist to entrepreneur is undoubtedly a difficult task, especially as a Black woman. But Williams says she counts on her presence to make sure she’s taken seriously.

“Sometimes you have to ask for [respect]. But I think other times your demeanor, the way you carry yourself helps people realize what you stand for,” Williams tells BLAC. “Sometimes all you have to do is just walk in a room and I think it’s something in your presence that just demands respect.”

The BOSS Network, which stands for Bringing Out Successful Sisters, is an online career and business development community for women of color with over 50,000 subscribers worldwide.

“Michelle embodies to me what a BOSS woman is,” The BOSS Network Founder Cameka Smith says. “She’s from small, humble beginnings and she has done something on an international level and created such success. She’s stayed very humble and is constantly reinventing herself. She’s inspiring all of us as women, so I wanted people to get to know the woman behind Michelle Williams.”
