In this inaugural episode of the podcast, host Rachel Rodgers takes us way back and focuses on the life and times of America's first female millionaire, Madame C.J. Walker. This is a story filled with beautiful black history, and great business advice. Which is incredible when you realized that it was a time when slavery had just been eradicated.

The story is told by none other than the great-great-grand daughter of Madame C.J. Walker herself, notable NY Times author and journalist, A'Lelia Bundles. With 30 years experience in the television industry, A'Lelia has seen and done it all. She is currently working on an 8-part Netflix series starring Octavia Spencer, produced by Lebron James. This is fantastic story told by an equally inspiring woman, enjoy!
