Black Businesses Reason’s for Success

We always hear about why black owned businesses fail. In a recent study conducted by the CBC (Columbus Black Chamber) we found reasons for the success of black owned businesses. It is our belief that if you continue to focus and read about the failure of black owned businesses that is what it will be. In this article we focus on the opposite.

Strong motivation is one of the reasons for success of black owned businesses. Although it is no guarantee of success many businesses go down fighting. It is one of the essentials in african american people. One of the characteristics of a new business venture is that problems seem to arise continually. It takes a highly motivated manager  (someone with drive and ambition) to resolve them day after day.
