This week's #WomanBossWednesday feature is Crystal Good. Crystal is writer-poet and founder of Black By God The West Virginian, a news and storytelling organization centering Black voices from West Virginia. Crystal is an Irene McKinney Scholar, WVU Newstart Fellow, Tiny News Fellow and the author of Valley Girl and Marking Territory.

One of Crystal's goals is to continue building her paper's audience, so that as it grows, she has an even larger platform to amplify leaders and business owners across the state. She believes that if we all come together collectively, we can build up this newspaper, as well as the people and businesses within its pages. Crystal also aspires to create some of the tools and resources that would've been helpful to her as a young woman, a young mom and an ambitious student. She often asks herself, "How can I help support people on their journeys where I felt I wasn't really supported [in mine]?"

For small business owners, Crystal believes that their greatest hurdles / needs are 1. obtaining startup capital, 2. marketing that improves ROI, and 3. finding + having a real business mentor and a supportive community.

You can connect with Crystal by visiting BlackByGod.org or following her on Twitter at @cgoodwoman.

Crystal and several other amazing and influential women have been interviewed by our Marketing & Outreach Intern Tatyana Amador. Over the next several months, we have the honor of featuring their stories here -- so stay tuned! And be sure to like and follow Black By God The West Virginian! ✨
