“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star and business mogul, Kandi Burruss, hosted an ‘Empower The Businesswoman Master Class’ event this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia. Fresh off her European excursion to celebrate her first year wedding anniversary to husband, Todd Tucker, Kandi jumped right back into business mode as host of the event.
The popular event featured panel discussions from top female bosses in the industry, giving invaluable advice to participants, including ‘Love & Hip Hop’ executive, Mona Scott Young, and Miss Jessie founder, Miko Branch. The event was sold out, and great door prize giveaways were a bonus to the fantastic networking opportunities. Kandi teamed up with her RHOA co-star, Claudia Jordan for the event. Claudia played host and moderator for the one day summit.
The highlight of the day was a ‘Shark Tank” type entrepreneurial pitch session, where Kandi awarded three lucky attendees a financial boost towards meeting their entrepreneurial goals.

Kudos to Kandi for generously sharing the wealth of knowledge that has allowed her to successfully build a $35 million empire. Her efforts through events such as these, as well as her “Kandi Cares’ Foundation not only serve to empower women, but also support single mothers and their children.
