Join Melanated Queen Productions! A Co-Working And Social Room For The Culture!

When I first started the Confessions Of A Melanated Queen podcast, I quickly grew frustrated over the fact that I could not find a comfortable space to record my show. Being an entrepreneur can be lonely, and after searching high and low for a space that would be empowering and motivating, I saw the need to start a co-working and social room for the culture!
When you join Melanated Queen Productions, you will have unlimited access to Wi-Fi and printing, a mail box for your business, coffee, beverages, access to the space for meetings, an opportunity to network with other likeminded people, and a space to relax and unwind while you work on YOU!

We will also promote your business regularly on our social media outlets!

Located in beautiful downtown Homewood, IL, we hope you can join the movement! Sign up for more information on membership opportunities! Click the link
