There are a plethora of ways to help empower others, and Black entrepreneur Tera Carissa Hodges has created a way that’s both sentimental and personal.
The empowerment coach teamed up with Culture Greetings, a female and Black-owned greeting card brand, to empower women, according to Black News. Hodges’ collaboration is an example of how holidays and celebrations shouldn’t be the only time to show love to those around you. The 10 greeting cards within the brand’s breakthrough and empowerment line revolve around trials and tribulations such as breakups and job loss — tough times where one needs support most.
“I help people heal from their past by embracing their past and pain and seeing it as purposeful. Everyone has made mistakes, been lied to, endured unfair treatment, etc. But, when you own your story, your story can never own you,” the Black entrepreneur shared.
Culture Greetings’ customers can pick a card online and customize it with a personalized message. The cards will then be sent directly to the recipient via postal mail or to any Walgreens location within the 50 states for same-day pick-up, according to the outlet.
In 2006, Hodges started her journey of empowering people by leading coaching sessions to build LR Global Media Group, a PR and media services company.
Tera's Empowerment Empire
“Seeing so many faith-based professionals ‘stuck,’ not where they want to be, not having a vision for how to get there, and not knowing how to evolve and reinvent themselves to get them where they want to be is what motivated me to start my business. All of my clients have dreams, but dreams have to become ideas, then actionable steps you take for them to become a reality,” she said.
Her entrepreneurial moves have turned into making her seven figures as an empowerment coach. With her new partnership with Culture Greetings, Hodges is continuing to grow her empowerment empire to touch more lives across the globe.
