    The Most Powerful Strategy Women Owned Businesses Can Implement to Grow Business

    in Business

    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.

    in Culture

    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.

    REAL TALK LIVE 216...DO AMERICANS SUPPORT BLACK-OWNED BUSINESS?

    in Current Events

    Real Talk Live 216 is asking you but more importantly AMERICA, Do we as a country and as AMERICANS SUPPORT BLACK-OWNED BUSINESS. Why do blacks have the greatest purchasing power but have the least amount of black owned business/support? Why do some Americans shop in their own communities placing profit and revenue back into their communiies while others do not? Why is their such a disparity between Black Owned Business compared to others?  We have often heard this saying IF IT AIN'T WHITE IT AIN'T RIGHT but what if there are more reason beyond race and color ask to the reasons why their is a lack of support fort black owned-business? 


    Real Talk Live 216 wants to have this conversation rather sooner than later. We all should support and partake in the AMERICAN DREAM and we all need to come together so this disparity and stereotypes can be changed. IS STARTS AND ENDS WITH US? It's time we change this mindset and get the American people and blacks to start supporting black business more.  I know we can't change this way of thinking over night but we can change one or maybe some by having one conversation at a time. 


    This show will talk about some of the issues but will finish off with the solutions (ways in which we  can support black business) It's time that black business like yours and others get the attention and spotlight in which they deserve. This is not a Black and White thing but a mindset that needs to change. It starts with us by opening up the dialogue and having the honest conversation.
