DALLAS — Sometimes a little love and support are all you need to shine and succeed. February is Black History Month, and we're shining a light on Black business owners and content creators for that reason.

When you see giant scissors at a grand opening for a business, it's safe to assume something big is in store.  

There is painting with a twist, and then there is candle-making with a twist at Golden Blk Company. Adults get the champagne and kids stick to juice or soda while creating a unique scent to take home.

"We like to manifest more love and peace in their life," said Howsha Golden, co-owner of Golden Blk.  

This concept is a dream created by Golden and Ebony Burks. They are making it known they want nothing more than to give you a good time while bettering your self-care routine. Their vision may bring you more relaxation now, but the journey to get here hasn’t brought them any. 

“Sometimes we aren’t afforded the resources that other entrepreneurs may have when it comes to loans or even as simple as a blueprint for how to do it," Burks said.  

Black women make up the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs, despite statistically having less money to get started compared to other races. Research by the McKinsey report backs up that claim because numbers show Black entrepreneurs have $35,000 in capital to start compared to $107,000 for white entrepreneurs. 

“People want to see more things come from the Black community, from Black women. They want to see Black business and Black-owned products,” Golden added. 

The in-person candle-making section of their business launches during Black History Month, but this duo has been making a name for themselves by selling crafted candles online since Juneteenth of 2020. Back then, there were constant George Floyd and Black Lives Matter protests going on to amplify Black voices and stand against racism. Making a difference also included spending hard-earned dollars at Black-owned businesses like Golden Blk.  

"I've always seen us working as a manager, but never owning our own. And when I did see it, it was always on TV," said Jessica Clerkly, a first-time customer. 

We live in a time when you can celebrate Black history while also being Black history.
