When you support a Black owned business, you support a dream.
Tremendous hard work and countless sleepless nights go into the operation of every small business. Black business is no different. It took courage for a Black entrepreneur to step out on their own to achieve their dream. They need our support. There are tons of benefits in buying black. Don’t believe me? Check these out:
Black owned businesses are the backbone of our community.
It’s not a coincidence that the government throws their support behind small businesses. From funding to workshops, the success of small business is the success of our economy. So then isn’t the success of black business paramount for the prosperity of our community? Of course it it! The sooner we all realize this, the better. Just like the government, we need to throw our support behind Black owned businesses, for our greater good.
Black owned businesses are more likely to give back.
Putting our money into our local businesses means that there will be more funds circulating to invest in things that matter to us. When organizers are looking for companies to sponsor community tailored events, how amazing would it be if black owned businesses were in a position to lend a helping hand. School drives, fashion shows, or even much needed donations. It is far more likely for a local business to put money back into the community than big chain stores.
Original, Authentic and Magic. Need I say more?
Originality is important. Especially in business. Sometimes it makes a big difference when someone can relate to you. They understand the struggle and empathize with you. That puts Black business in a better position to cater to your needs. The products are original and stylish, and let’s just say they got flava. Every now and then, you’ll find hidden gems in your city(Scott Hill Cuisine) that will make you believe in Black magic. The good kind.
Want a personalized experience? Go to a local business. You see the person behind the brand. Decisions aren’t made with profits and shares in mind. Instead decisions are made to cater to you, the customer. Owners are committed and personally invested in creating a quality experience. You should be able to sense that every time you walk in. Eventually, you’ll formulate a relationship. They’ll care about you just as much as your business. That’s an experience you can never get visiting larger corporations.
Black entrepreneurs are visionaries.
It’s undeniable that these folks are oozing with creative juices. Entrepreneurs have a unique view of the world and share that through their craft. Whatever it is. Have you ever met a fashion major turned mortgage agent? Well I have (Shaunese Lawrence)! It makes for a fresh look at mortgages and branding. Or a gifting concierge? Who thinks of these things? Entrepreneurs, that’s who. These are our visionaries. They are thought leaders and innovators. Black entrepreneurs are primed to lead Black business into a new frontier of greatness. I’m all for it.
