Black owned businesses and black entrepreneurs are a crucial part of the black community. If we aspire to be self sufficient, which, by the way, is our definition of black excellence, then we need to support black owned business, from the local stores to the national brands.
We are launching a new video series that focuses on black entrepreneurs by asking them, how did you turn your passion into business?
Passion is a fuel that keeps many businesses going. In fact, most experts say the intersection of passion and demand is where great businesses are born. If you’re passionate about what you do, it helps you get through the countless setbacks that inevitably come with starting any business.
