Get into these father-daughter duos winning in entrepreneurship and leadership.

Business

A father-daughter business is something that we all can be proud of especially at a time like Father's Day. And who doesn't love a girl dad? (They definitely get more than their share of love on social. Just look up the hashtag, sis. There are millions of tear-inspiring, super-sweet images to swoon about on Instagram alone.)


Hey, you gotta love the men who not only take care of their families but instill entrepreneurial values and create opportunities for their daughters to get to those coins and prosper. Take a look at a few awesome father-daughter duos who are not only working together on building initiatives, businesses, and platforms, but are just the cutest example of girl-dad love:

Entertainment: Jamie Foxx and Corinne Foxx

Jamie Foxx is obviously a Hollywood OG, and we all know this Oscar winner from his hilarious roles---In Living Color, Booty Call, and The Jamie Foxx Show---and his amazingly powerful dramatic roles---Ray, Django Unchained, and Dreamgirls. We also know him for his musical gifts with hits like "Blame It" and "Unpredictable." He's a boss as well, having recently inked a deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment to co-produce shows and films. He's partnered with his daughter, Corinne Foxx, to produce the Netflix comedy Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me! These two truly keep business in the family as they also star together in the Fox gameshow Beat Shazam. Reportedly, Jamie and Corinne have a net worth of $100 million and $10 million respectively -- talk about money moves!

Bath & Body: Bobby Hand and Brooklynne Hand

With shops in Maryland and an online base for customers, their line of handmade bath and body products, BrookieGirl, includes bath bombs, teas, soaps, butters and mists, and even includes beard oil for the fellas. Bobby and his teen daughter Brooklynne launched the business, and it's a family affair with mom, Shaun also an active part of keeping the business growing.

Philanthropy: Ron Johnson and Kamryn Johnson

Kamryn Johnson made news headlines when, at nine, she was able to rally with friends and get the help of her dad, Ron, a former NFL player, to raise almost $100,000 to support Black businesses rebounding from the challenges of the pandemic. She and her friends sold bracelets at a stand, and Ron started a GoFundMe to help in the efforts to reach their goals. Talk about a young philanthropic powerhouse!

Fashion: Kevan Hall and Asia Hall

Asia Hall used to sit front row as a child while watching her father's visions slay runways at Fashion Week, and today she's CEO of her own super-cool fashion-tech brand, Neon Cowboys. Kevan is a legend in the couture game, having served as creative director for Halston (the luxury fashion house, not the show, sis). Both he and Asia showcased their collections this year via the CFDA's Runway360 platform---his filled with fab special occasion dresses and hers filled with spicy neon numbers that give Megan Thee Stallion fierceness.

Restaurants & Real Estate: Michael Byrd and Stephanie Byrd

For the Byrds, owning restaurants, rebuilding urban communities, and tapping into real estate is a family affair: Michael is owner of historic Detroit eatery Flood's Bar and Grill as well as co-owner of Woodward Garden Block Development, a massive span of buildings that include upscale residences and restaurants. His daughter Stephanie now serves as co-owner of Flood's, as well as the historic Garden Theater, which hosts weddings and other large-scale events, and The Block Neighborhood Bar and Grill.

Mission-Led Apparel: Jason Harris and Lena Harris

This father-daughter team started 195essential, a mission-focused T-shirt brand that sparked from Lena's idea to advocate for essential workers impacted by COVID-19. The brand has expanded to focus on diverse social issues and gives back to the tune of at least 10 percent of their profits to raise awareness and fund community initiatives for change. Their T-shirts represent messaging in support of advocacy including Pride, human rights, environmental activism, and voting.

Food: Bobby Morelli and Brooklyn Morelli

Dad Bobby is an entrepreneur and recording artist who went into business with his young daughter to launch a lucrative hot dog joint in Chi-town called The Hot Dog Box. Offering wild, lux and classic options like the Salmon Dog, the Brownsville Bourbon Filet Mignon Steak Dog, and the Chicago Style, this is a growing business that is expanding from its small shipping container to a larger restaurant near Chicago's famous Portage Park.

It was December of 2009 that I made an impromptu decision to cut my permed hair off. My reason for making that drastic change was due to ending a dating relationship at the time and the painful experience I went through from relaxing my hair in my dorm a couple of months prior. Cutting my hair immediately left me feeling bold yet boy-ish whenever I found myself dressing down or not wearing lavish earrings. After several months experimenting with wearing twist-outs, dyeing it myself (I was extra bold with that) and even getting my first blowout (that later resulted in heat damage), I thought I'd been hiding my beautiful kinks due to laziness.

So, what exactly is K-Beauty? Well, it's not as complicated as it seems or sounds. Essentially, it is a skincare routine that uses Korean beauty products that originates from and is made in Korea.

Unlike some skincare products that yield short-term results, Korean beauty products are designed to work long-term. The idea of long-term skincare isn't new.

So, if you've been rocking with this site for several years now, you might vaguely recall an article that I wrote, a couple of years back entitled, "Why You Need To Grieve Your Past Relationship". The bottom line was, if you don't make the time to go through the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance — even when it comes to the ending of a romantic relationship, you could 1) mistake a lack of thorough and proper grieving for still loving someone and/or 2) prolong the process of healing, so that you can actually move forward.
