Why have we experienced such a decline in successful Black owned businesses? Why are there so few, if any, BOBs located in majority Black Communities? Building the economic base in the majority 'Black' populated communities of Poverty Stricken America. Where do we start?
Columbus, Georgia - with over a third of businesses being black-owned, this vibrant community is home to the aerospace industry, automotive manufacturing, defense, technology and tourism and has an active uptown area full of great restaurants, shops and other small businesses.
PTSD is a mental disorder, and among the black community, there is a stronger reluctance to seek help for any mental illness. Black women, in particular, are viewed as strong with the ability to overcome traumatic events. An article recently published in Essence Magazine also showed that treating people of color in low-income communities for PTSD is just not a high priority.
As of 2012, it is estimated that there are more than 8.3 million women-owned businesses in the United States, generating nearly $1.3 trillion in revenue. Many large corporations now understand that it makes good business sense to spend dollars with women-owned vendor firms. Corporate management knows it is good for the public relations and for their local communities, but most importantly for the value they get from the dollars spent with women-owned companies.
Certification as a woman owned business can help women reach markets they could not reach on their own. Being certified as a Women Owned Business Enterprise matches women with the corporate entities they desire.
This week I am interviewing my business partner in an exciting initiative we offer to help WBEs prepare themselves for corporate business. Cheryl El-Alf, President of Diverse Supply Chain Partner is on a mission to help WBE (Women Business Enterprise) executives and their leadership teams to implement the strategies necessary to grow their business within the corporate supply chain.
Chery’s background is unique and diverse. Her knowledge of, and working experience in supplier diversity programs includes the Small Business Administration’s 8A program in addition to Corporate America’s W/MBE programs. She has mastered the skill of leveraging these programs to not only help the W/MBE businesses achieve their financial goals; but also the Corporate Supply Chain’s diverse spend goals. She refers to this as a “win-win” situation.
Join us today to learn about WBE certification and its advantages .The benefits of becoming certified and examples of the impact that using this strategy has had for other women in business.
Who knows about the race riot and the outright brutal, vicious, horrendous and downright devilish attack on Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1921? How about the same occurrences in Forsythe, GA or even Rosewood, Fl? There was a time when Black Businesses and towns were thriving and doing well.
Today, we typically say "Black folks need to unite to build and sustain businesses," but can you honestly say you've done so? Did you know the Black dollar used to turn over 12 times in the community, often never leaving the community? Join me tonight as we speak with several entrepreuners who've taken the leap and started their own businesses but they need YOU, your networks and your $$$ so we can rebuild!
Tonight we'll speak with the makers of Body Breaker (www.bodybreaker.com), a health and fitness board game; The Underground Kings, film makers Nakia Dilliard and Flloyd Marshall (www.theundergroundkings.com) who are young and who have proven that all it takes is a dream, support and sweat equity to make it work. Finally, we'll round the show up with Stephanie Mims from Urban Angel LLC who will discuss this great non profit and ways in which you can lend your support! Tune in! You don't want to miss this riveting show as we support our community!
