Sheila Johnson didn’t stop with Salamander Resort & Spa. The mogul also opened NOPSI Hotel in downtown New Orleans using loans and grants from the state of Louisiana as well as their own personal savings. The female, black female owner overcame many barriers to raise the cash for a luxury hotel, not to mention the zoning requirements, business permits, and other work. She used non-profits and community support from low interest rate minority business loans in Louisiana.
