Happy Brown Ambition Wednesday! We are BACK with an amazing guest on today's show — Gayle Jennings-O'Byrne, founder and CEO of iNTENT Manifesto, a new movement aimed at helping women of color-led startups find investors for their businesses. 

"I had to set my own rules. I remember when I told people I want to unlock $1 billion for black women and women of color. People looked at me like I was crazy but they said OK what do I need to do to help you? " 

We talk to Gayle about why she left her 17-year career at JP Morgan Chase after a health scare to launch iNTENT and what resources are out there for women looking to start businesses today:

"I just remember thinking, Lord, if I get through this I'm gonna do things differently. And one of those things I said I was gonna do differently was become a champion for women who look like me."
