SORT BY Relevancy
Black Americans have struggled to make a way out of no way for centuries. Faced with rampant racism and discrimination, industrious Black Americans do for self, launching their own businesses. The number of businesses owned by Black American women grew 322% since 1997, making black females the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States. Women now own 30% of all businesses in the U.S., accounting for some 9.4 million firms. And Black American women control 14% of these companies, or an estimated 1.3 million businesses. The growth in women-owned firms may be due to the lack of fair pay, fair promotion, and family-friendly policies found in corporate America. Women of color are impacted more significantly by all of the negative factors that women face.
The highest concentrations of black woman-owned businesses are in Georgia, Maryland, and Illinois, but Black American women are launching companies in growing numbers across the country. Cassandra Bell-Gash launched a Medicaid waiver care in North Carolina in 2003 and grew the business into a million-dollar venture only to get sabotaged by bureaucratic mumbo-gumbo that delayed payments and interfered with client services forcing her to close in 2008. No untoward findings were made, but the interference caused Ms. Bell-Gash to close her business and regroup. Bell-Gash is unusual among entrepreneurs of any race or gender in that she employed more than just herself. Black American Women have an incredibly steep incline trying to do two things: one is just to be successful, and the other is to create wealth. Cassandra Bell-Gash relaunched her company, Life Provisions,Inc. (LPI) this Spring 2015 saying she was "delayed, but not detered".
Tune in each Thursday Morning from 10:30-11:00 AM (CDT) and 11:30-12:00 AM (EST) to The Little Flower Literacy and Economics Radio Show. Hosted by Dr. Florita Bell Griffin in Houston, Texas and Leon Gatewood in Morven, North Carolina, the Little Flower Show addresses the connection between illiteracy, economics and communities. The show is an affiliate of Marketing Pulpit International, Washington D.C.
Dr. Griffin, a Houston, Texas author, creative director, urban planner and urban and regional scientist, is concerned with analytical approaches to problems that are specifically urban, rural and regional in nature. Functional illiteracy in youth, and its link to the economic stability of communities is an urban, rural and regional problem that deeply concerns her. She believes that improving literacy is the way forward for communities who want to boost their local economy, and that investing in creative literacy vehicles today is necessary for building a solid and secure future tomorrow.
Leon Gatewood, is the co-founder and CEO of Helping Our Loved Ones Learn And Achieve! HOLLA!, a non-profit Community Development Corporation in Morven, North Carolina, with a youth literacy mission. Since formally organizing in 2011, HOLLA! has caused over a half million dollars to be injected into the Morven Community, which using the Economic Multiplier Effect equates to approximately two million dollars.

F.E.A.R. - it's a normal, but unpleasant emotion that we experience the minute we are made aware that we are in danger of being physically harmed. What happens though, when we mistakenly perceive something as threatening even though there is no evidence to support our misperceptions? Over time, these misperceived threats can leave us in state of angst, overwhelm, burnout, and defeat.
Join these three dynamic life coaches as they dive in deep to dissect the anatomy of fear. The trio will show you how to differentiate between real and perceived fear and how to bust through the latter.
