Being young, female, and African American, isn’t easy these days. Getting ahead in the job market having to rise above the competition isn’t easy either, but Erin Relford has proven it’s not impossible. With hard work and determination, Erin Relford has become one of the many young African American entrepreneurs in Houston, Texas. “I took advantage of all the free resources this city has to offer,” says Erin. Erin Relford is the owner of Adrienne Ford Co., a clothing design company catering to women with curvaceous figures.

Perseverance and Faith is key, but it’s not impossible to create your own business. There are many organizations out there willing to help anyone wanting to start a business. In Houston, Erin took advantage of Score’s free business counseling and workshops, Houston Small Business Development Corporation’s workshops, as well as, the University of Houston’s Small Business Development Center. In addition, there were many other seminars available on starting your business, marketing and publicity, and how to get a small business loan.

After several failed attempts to win the Miller Urban Entrepreneurship Series Business Plan Competition, Erin decided to find out what it really takes to have a good business plan. Through her search, she discovered many outlets that offer free information and counseling. “Owning my own business has been a dream since I was 15, now it’s finally come into fruition.” Now the 25 year old seeks to let others know just how easy it is. “Anyone can start a business with good research, successful planning, and Prayer!”
