Exclusive: Visionary Entrepreneur Cynthia Daniels Lost Her Job & Built An Event-Planning Empire

There’s never been a more magical time for Black women than now. In 2017, we’ve watched Michelle Obama make political power moves, Beyonce rule the universe, Ava DuVernay dazzle the big screen, Issa Rae sizzle the small screen, Serena dominate pro sports and extraordinary entrepreneurs like Memphis Black Restaurant Week founder Cynthia Daniels shine in the spotlight.

A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Cynthia wasn’t always a visionary entrepreneur running the hottest event planning & consulting business (Cynthia Daniels & Co.) in Memphis but it’s clear after chatting with her that she has excellence in her DNA.

After losing her job and stepping out on faith, Cynthia landed in culture-rich Memphis where she would soon build an event-planning empire with Memphis Black Restaurant Week as her signature event.
