We had the good fortune of connecting with Chanelle Yarber and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chanelle, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
My business helps the Black woman-owned business community by making sure they are visible to the world. Most business owners don’t understand how to properly position their businesses on the Internet. With the limited resources most women entrepreneurs start with, it is imperative that they get a decent headstart on generating revenue so that they can reinvest and scale their businesses for long-term success. We also host an online community that met in-person quarterly pre-COVID. This allows likeminded women to come together, network, learn from one another and support each other’s businesses. Without a strong community and marketing support many of these business owners would not thrive.

What should our readers know about your business?
BrightGirl Media is a digital marketing agency that caters to women entrepreneurs. What I am most excited about in my business is watching my clients receive massive results and having them trust me enough to come back and refer others. I got where I am today by focusing on other people first. I believe givers gain and when you help someone else get what they want or need it will be reciprocated. It has not been easy, but through prayer, determination, and a strong support system I have made it. I have learned that you need people. So many times as entrepreneurs we try to grind it out alone. We are so narrowly focused and have tunnel vision that we forget to include others. Nothing great was built in a silo. Even though your support system may not be other entrepreneurs or have a business background, sometimes you just need them to ground you, encourage you, and pray for you. That’s priceless. I want the world to know that BrightGirl Media intends to be the premier and marketing agency for women in business. We have unique challenges as women entrepreneurs – especially Black women. Me and my team of other women fully understand these challenges and rise to the occasion to serve.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love showing people around the Dallas metroplex. Some of my favorite places are Pangea in Garland for brunch. I also love live music at Sandaga 813. I’ve seen so many different acts there and its always a good vibe. We’d have to go to Blendz for daiquiris. And of course, I’d recommend enjoying the food trucks at Klyde Warren park followed by a slice of cake from Cake Bar in Trinity Groves.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to shoutout BrightGirls in Business. This group of women entrepreneurs has been extremely supportive of my business and has been a great referral source for me to continue to grow.
