Girl, get your shine on. Kandi Burruss is making headlines for the rights reasons. Impact Magazine honored the talented star for being a successful serial entrepreneur.
Kandi is the proud owner of several businesses that she runs with her husband, Todd Tucker. The gifted songwriter from Xscape also stars in the Real Housewives Of Atlanta, and she runs the TAGS Boutique and a restaurant called Old Lady Gang.
Kandi looked fabulous at the event in her honor wearing a black bustier matching pants and sexy braids. On social media, she thanked the publication for choosing her.
She wrote: “Thank you @impactmagazine for honoring me today. It was inspiring to be around so many powerhouse women & I’m so glad my mom could be there with me!”
A fan called her a boss lady and added: “Congrats!! You are a real inspiration to so many women! You deserve it. Wishing you nothing but the best!!! And your braids are pretty.”
Another congratulatory message read: “Congratulations Kandi you look radiant and youthful. You’re such an inspiration #boss #bossbabe #bosslady.”
A third supporter stated: “Congratulations @Kandi. Love the braids. You are gorgeous & stay winning! You are such an inspiration. You and your mom look so young!!! BEAUTIFUL.”
In a past interview with Forbes, Kandi explained her business model by saying: “I want to build businesses that are high quality, socially conscious, and for the people. To get started is very simple, but to execute is not. I’m incredibly creative, but to be successful at the highest level, you need to partner with the right people who are very detailed. Surround yourself with people you can build with, who are about taking your ideas and helping them come to life. Maintaining longevity is a significant part of the success to me. So many people go into an industry quick, shoot to the top, then crash and burn. It’s been a long journey for me. To say that I’m still here, still growing, and people still care about what I’m doing — that is what I would call success. I’m driven by legacy. I want to be remembered. This about leaving something for my kids.”
Kandi’s girls — Riley and Kaela — have a great role model.
