Audrey Bell-Kearney is the founder and CEO of Ms. Boss International. The company helps individuals learn how to turn their passion and hobbies into businesses. Although the company helps anyone, there is a special focus on women. Audrey is passionate about entrepreneurship. Audrey started her first real business in 1999. She realized that she was a single mom who wanted to create a nice life for her daughter who was 8 years old at the time. So she had this idea for a plus size fashion doll which was more realistic than the Barbie Doll. She told a friend about the idea and the friend thought it was a great idea. The two became partners and Big Beautiful Dolls, LLC was born June 1999. Starting this company taught Audrey a lot about running a business, manufacturing overseas and financing a business. The company became stagnant about six years after they started, so Audrey went on to start her own newspaper titled Women In Business Today. The newspaper was a monthly publication which provided business tips for those looking to start a business. The paper also profiled women who were already in business. The paper opened many doors for Audrey. She was asked to be interviewed on a local radio station. The host liked her so much that he brought on full time with her own show which had the same title as her newspaper, Women In Business Today. About 5 years ago Audrey assisted a gentleman with writing a book about the political system in Liberia, Africa. That gentleman went on run for president of the country, but he was defeated by President Ellen Johnson. This gentleman owns land in Liberia. Because he understands Audrey’s passion for empowering women, he is giving her an acre of land to build the first Ms. Boss Business Center in Liberia. The center will be opened to women to help them learn how to start their own business and to also help women in the US and Liberia learn how to do business with each other.
