Monday mornings are often difficult in scouring the internet for appealing content. This morning, I lucked out. It’s very rare to find daily stories featuring black women in business and tech. Today, I found four. Three of them made The Hit List below. I reserved the fourth for our intro.

The Miami Herald caught up with Dorothy Terrell for a Q&A about her longtime career as an executive in Corporate America. Her climb to the top provides excellent cues for millennial founders and game-changers.

Terrell is the founder and managing partner at FirstCap Advisors, a venture capital and advisory services firm. She’s been in the game for roughly four decades holding down leadership positions at leading tech firms. Her “willingness to relocate and do things I had not done before” is what helped her to navigate with the ever-changing tech revolution. At 71, she’s showing no signs of slowing down as her next mission is to get involved with Miami’s growing tech and startup scene.

Flexibility breeds longevity.
