Triumph in dark times led to the creation of LoveCorkScrew.

Throughout everything having solid support is important. Having a family that uplifts you is the foundation for any entrepreneur. Lampley can relate as she mentions her parents have also served as mentors. They gave her keys to what she needed to create her masterpiece by being true examples of resilience, persistence, and success as well as giving her the inspiration to keep going even in the face of challenges. This grape didn’t fall too far from the vine. Luckily for her parent’s the have an exceptional daughter that always works hard to make them more than proud.
Paying it Forward
When asked what the future holds for multicultural women, Lampley replied:
“Over the next five years, I hope that the state of business for women of color moves away from “prove it to me” and more towards, “I believe you. I believe in you.”
In a male dominant industry, there are not a lot of people in this business who look like me. My challenge every day is to prove myself. From shelf space to business agreements, there is always a question of, “Is she really the owner?”. Although women of color are the fast-growing business owners, they have access to limited resources compared to their male counterparts.
With that being said it is important to represent women like Chrishon Lampley who are trailblazers in their respective industries. Lampley truly believes that the future is female and works to make sure that that statement isn’t just a catchphrase but something feasible that we can see in this lifetime. “I always say that if I can affect one person, I’ve done my job. I want to continuously use my platform and inspire others to follow their dreams. That is truly important to me.” Lampley leverages her platform to mentor young women and budding entrepreneurs who would benefit from the lessons she’s learned on her road to success.
