I was browsing through the internet and ran across a list of the worlds most powerful BLACK women; and I thought that would be good for this group to get some inspiration from!!! let me know what you think!!!

On Wednesday, FORBES published its 2012 annual list of the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women. Of the 100 women featured, 11 are black, of whom 3 are Africans. They include political leaders, corporate executives, NGO heads, top government functionaries and a first lady. These are the 11 black women who matter the most.

Michelle Obama First Lady, U.S.A


President Obama’s wife remains resolute in her mission to end child obesity, inspires awe among global fashionistas for her stylish inclinations and commands media attention for her commitment to military families. And Mrs. Obama remains the President’s most effective campaign weapon. She has made more public appearances this year than usual in support of her husband’s reelection bid, including leading the U.S. Olympic delegation during the opening ceremony in July, serving as a judge during an episode of Bravo’s Top Chef and chatting with the ladies on The View. Results: her positive approval ratings register at 66% while POTUS’s term average has hovered just below 50%. Earlier this year, she authored “American Grown,” a coffee table book about growing veggies and tomatoes on the South Lawn of the White House.


Oprah Winfrey Media Mogul, U.S.A

Last year, Oprah ended The Oprah Show, her highly successful, syndicated talk show, after a 25 year-stint. And she launched her own cable channel, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).  Oprah has yet to replicate her magic with her cable TV network. Ratings have been lackluster at best, and the network is struggling with steep financial losses. Silver lining: this year OWN secured a deal with Comcast to earn subscriber fees and increase the number of households that carry it to 83 million. More silver linings: she is still the world’s wealthiest black woman. Estimated net worth: $2.7 billion.


Beyonce Musician, U.S.A

In January this year, singer Beyonce gave birth to her first child, Blue Ivy Carter, with her husband, Jay-Z. Five months later she hit the stage for “Back to Business”- a sold-out four night performance. Her new album, 4, went platinum in the UundefinedS; it sold 310,000 copies in its first week. Beyonce still rakes in millions from old hits as well as from business ventures such as her clothing line, House of Dereon, and numerous endorsement deals. One of the best-selling musicians of all time, Beyonce has earned 16 Grammy awards to date.


Ursula Burns CEO of Xerox, U.S.A

Ursula Burns started her career at Xerox as a summer intern in 1980 and went on to join the company on a fulltime basis one year later after obtaining her Masters’ Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Columbia University. She became Vice-President in 2000 and was named CEO in 2009. Now in her third year at the helm, Burns is working hard to reframe Xerox as a services business instead of a manufacturer of printers. In 2010, she led the company’s $6.4 billion acquisition of business process outsourcing giant Affiliated Computer Services (ACS). Xerox now gets half of its revenue from service businesses like managing electronic ticket transactions, road tolls and parking meters. This year, Burns spoke against Augusta National Golf Club’s 80 year-old male-only membership policy and threatened to cut off sponsorship of the Masters. In August, the club admitted two women as members, including former Secretary of State Condolezza Rice.


Rosalind Brewer President and CEO, Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart Stores

The former executive at Kimberly-Clark joined Wal-Mart in 2006 and served as president of the retail giant’s Eastern U.S. business division. In January Brewer, 49, was appointed president and chief of Sam’s Club, making her the first woman and first African American person to become CEO of a Wal-Mart business. Sam’s Club, a discount membership club, is the 8th largest retailer in the UundefinedS, with 610 locations and 47 million members. Sam’s contributes as much as 12% of Wal-Mart’s annual revenue. Sales in 2011: $50 billion.

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”

Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
