Interview with A’lelia Bundles, great great grandaugher of Madam C.J. Walker


A’lelia Bundles is the great great granddaughter and biographer of Madam C.J. Walker who is said to be the first American, woman millionaire. Our interview not alone reveals the details of Madam Walker’s personal life, but also touches upon Madam Walker’s business acumen, as well as her philanthropic and political efforts. You will be inspired by her story and the lessons her life provides for women seeking to build their own business. In times far more difficult than our own, Madam C.J. Walker built an empire. As a sales and business development expert, I was inspired and awed to learn about Madam Walker’s capacity to scale her business through a trained sales force! Madam C.J. Walker’s life is such rich ground for discussion, but this is only the beginning. Be sure to read On Her Own Ground: The Life and Times of Madam C.J. Walker. We will be skyping with A’lelia Bundles for a very special book club in October – you won’t want to miss this extraordinary event.
