Rosetta Thurman: The Happy Black Woman

rosetta thurman

Rosetta Thurman believes that you can do anything you want with your life! So in 2010, she created to document her journey towards transforming her life and help other women do the same…

Since then, Happy Black Woman has grown into a supportive community of women committed to pursuing big goals.

Rosetta grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, raised by her mother and grandmother. Although she grew up poor, she was fortunate enough to attend good schools and have mentors. As a result, she became the first person in her family to graduate from college.

Still trying to find her purpose in life, she began working in corporate America in Washington, D.C. but always felt something was missing. She always felt that she wasn’t living her best life. She became inspired into leadership development – helping women figure out their own personal mission.

Rosetta left her well-paying 9 to 5 job (including an expensive PhD program to take her business full-time. Everyone thought she was crazy!

Surprisingly, in her first year, she earned the same amount of money she was making in her previous full-time job. That’s when she knew that she could build a successful business doing what she loved.

She began blogging about everything – going natural to dating to traveling. She found herself connecting with other women on similar paths. As she became passionate about empowering women, Rosetta focused completely on growing Happy Black Woman into the #1 personal development company for women.

Today, the website reaches thousands of women each month through articles, books, courses, workshops, and coaching.

She is a self-proclaimed introvert which is surprising being a successful, professional speaker.  However, as soon as she steps off the stage, all she wants to do is run back to her hotel room, order room service and listen to some jazz.

Rosetta Thurman is the #1 Amazon Bestselling Author of Launch Your Business: The 5 Step Solution To Do What You Love, Quit Your Job and Have the Freedom To Travel and Live Life On Your Own Terms.
