I am very excited to announce a new social network for African Americans who celebrate the spirit of the entrepreneur. It is called Honor Black Wall Street, named after that thriving Black community in Tulsa, Oklahoma around the turn of the century.
I receive emails from all over the country from people asking advice about starting their own business. The reason I think this network is so valuable is because most networks today are crowded with people already in business and are using the networks to market. I want to do that too, but also provide a forum for people looking to start their business and need some help getting there.
Having said that, I don't consider myself to be a master, but still a student. But there are a few things I am absolutely clear about. 1) We, African Americans, need to be more industrious and self-reliant. One of the best ways to do that is by starting your own business. And 2) We need to not depend on a political party to provide us with our freedom. And, finally 3) The state of Black America today tells me we need to do things differently as a people.
With that, I want to invite you all to visit Honor Black Wall Street and bring your questions and proposed solutions. Let us together explore ideas for new businesses. Let us network and do business together. Whether you are starting out, thriving or somewhere in between, help make this the site to be on.
