As part of our follow up to the progress the Daughters of Zion CNPP grantee is making within Memphis, Shelby County, and beyond- we are now highlighting their weekly Entrepreneur of the Week award. When asked why Tracy Munn was selected as entrepreneur of the week, Dr. Gerald Kiner, PhD responded, “ Her zeal and enthusiasm is contagious. She soaks up everything we teach and implements it immediately into her business strategy. It’s rare to see a business sponge such as Tracy Munn.”
Mrs. Tracy Y. Munn answered our 3 questions for the entrepreneur of the week.

A: My vision for my business is to empower and mentor the next generation of youth with sewing and pattern making techniques that equips them to work or become entrepreneurs in the fashion industry which can enable them to secure livable wages.
Q: #2: How has Daughters of Zion Community Navigator Pilot Program impacted you as an entrepreneur?
A: Daughters of Zion has stretched me out of my comfort zone of procrastination of putting off tomorrow what I can do today. The wealth of grant information, the zoom meeting, and Saturday classes are priceless. They have mentors that are very knowledgeable, skilled, supportive and the whole entire staff is just nice and on point.
Q: #3: What would you say to other entrepreneurs about becoming apart of the Daughters of Zion Community Navigator Pilot Program?
A: Whether you’re a New Start Up, an Existing, or Well Established business, if you’re serious about taking your business to the next level and are willing to invest your time, attention and accept the possibility that there may be some areas in our business that might need an overhaul or tweeking and trust that God has aligned this connection with Dr. Kiner and his team was purposefully orchestrated in this season and time in the universe for our good. I can honestly say that Daughters of Zion has enlightened , propelled and motivated me to think limitlessly about what I can do and accomplish with my business and other endeavors.
