What inspired you to seek out this particular business venture, and what sort of challenges do you face? There was no tangible place for us to purchase quality baby strollers when we had children. We had to travel to another state like New Jersey to physically see if we liked a product, so we decided to provide our community with a cozy, safe, convenient, professional atmosphere that focuses on quality baby products and services for families.

Intellectual Ink Magazine believes that supporting black businesses is essential to creating economic justice for the Black community. By utilizing the power of the Black dollar, small businesses have the potential to create jobs, provide vital resources, and stimulate economic development in their local communities. Unfortunately, Black-owned businesses are facing unique challenges due to systemic racism and discrimination in access to capital and other resources. Throughout the year we will be SPOTLIGHTING BLACK ENTREPRENEURS to help with these initiatives.
