Our team loves 🍪🍪🍪, and this young entrepreneur baking lots of them! Mr Cory's Cookies was founded by Cory Nieves (and his mom Lisa) when he was only 6! What started as a way to save for a car for his mom, turned into a way to save for college, and is now a business that sells cookies and inspires other single moms and their kids to start projects together. Spreading hope, #BlackBoyJoy, and cookies? Sounds like something to celebrate this #BlackHistoryMonth.

"It's exhausting to have to justify your freedoms in a supposedly free society." Today is the World Day of Social Justice, and we wanted to recognize Desmond Cole. Toronto based writer, activist, friend, and former neighbour of ours at CSI, Cole won the 2017 PEN Canada prize for his work to advance freedom of expression in Canada. He's definitely making history right now! #BlackHistoryMonth

We love this concept of focusing on grit and persistence to learn one new hard skill per month! Here at Twenty One Toys, we're all working on learning some new things this year (although not necessarily one per month)! What are you learning this year?

Making history as one of the youngest to get an investment on #SharkTank and with 9 years of entrepreneurial experience at the age of 13? Sounds like #BlackGirlMagic! @mikailasBees is taking care of the 🐝🐝🐝 making delicious lemonade! #BlackHistoryMonth

Do you have to be a "natural" to start a business? We agree that a LOT of what it takes to be an entrepreneur can be learned, and a lot of those skills don't come from textbooks... https://buff.ly/2E9iUAQ
