How does the Vice President operate? DC Mayor Bowser stopped by a colada shop to encourage female entrepreneurs like Kamala harris news.
Last week, Daniella Senior, CEO of Colada Shop in Washington, DC, was startled to learn she had been invited to the White House and even questioned Vice President Kamala Harris’ chief of staff why.
As a result, the executive of a Cuban cafe and bar was invited to join other entrepreneurs for a conversation about the obstacles women encounter when starting their own businesses and what the federal government can do to help them overcome those obstacles.
According to Senior, typical problem faced by women who want to start their own business is a lack of finance. As the White House’s “ambitious proposal to generate jobs, cut taxes, and lower expenses for working families,” Harris sponsored the discussion group.
Senior talked about the difficulties she had to overcome,
such as having to rely on investors to get her company off the ground. Harris elaborated on the administration’s intention to assist former working women.
When people talk about us, “unbankable” is often what they mean, Senior tells WTOP. It’s true that many women, particularly minority women, have brilliant business ideas and are working hard to expand their enterprises,
but they’re failing.
Senior, on the other hand, had no idea that their initial meeting would lead to a visit at The Wharf’s Colada Shop by Harris and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. Senior saw Secret Service scouts in the neighborhood at the beginning of the day on Monday. Senior found out about an hour before Harris arrived that he would be paying him a visit.
A quarter-sweet coffee con Leche was recommended by Senior to both Bowser and Harris. A beef empanada and a carrot and leek empanada were among Harris’ other food selections.
It just took a few minutes for Harris to welcome the restaurant’s workers and patrons and encourage them to shop locally. According to Senior, Bowser also stressed the significance of re-engaging women in the workforce.
[Harris’ talk was honest], and the fact that she’s so invested in small businesses and elevating us, it’s great,” Senior remarked.
Before the tour came to an end,
Harris seized the opportunity to talk about the significance of Build Back Better and the administration’s infrastructure.
“We need these two pieces of legislation if we want to have an economically healthy and productive community,” Harris said, according to a pool report. “And Daniella’s work here at Colada and in her other businesses is a prime example of why these two pieces of legislation are critical and are about everyday folks trying to contribute to their community.”
