CELEBRATE NATIONAL BLACK BUSINESS MONTH..







A MESSAGE FROM JANE CARTER OF JANE CARTER SOLUTION:
 
August is National Black Business Month and it's not easy being a business owner these days, but it's particularly challenging for black business owners. Black people have the highest spending rate among all ethnic groups but, sadly their consumer dollars are not recycled back into the black community. Each additional $40,000 spent provides a business owner with the resources to create one new job. It may not seem like much, but this one new job translates into a better future for the employee, their family and the community.
 
We must embrace the spirit of family and self-reliance in order to strengthen the foundation of our community. Spend your income locally and support those black entrepreneurs that work hard for your business. Give these people a chance to succeed - their success results in more jobs, stronger community, and greater opportunities for everyone.
 
Encourage everyone to support black owned businesses - not only during the month of August but throughout the year. Remember: 2010 31 Days and 31 Ways to invest in your community.
 
My thoughts:
 
Many, thanks to Jane Carter for this wonderful reminder.  I couldn't agree more !
 
 
                                                                                                 ENJOY!!!

Wow, thanks for the post. I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't even know there was a black business month.

Black women (in general) spend so much money on hair care. It's time we started supporting our own more.
