BLACK MOM CREATES BRAND AND CHILDREN'S BOOK TO HIGHLIGHT PREMATURE BABIES AFTER HAVING HER BABY 4 MONTHS EARLY

Nationwide When Shanel Hudson went in for a routine ultrasound at 24 weeks in 2018, she never imagined that a few days later, she'd be having her baby almost 4 months early. After having an emergency c-section, her son was born weighing just 1 pound and would remain in the hospital for 6 grueling months fighting to grow and stay alive. Watching her son fight for his life at such a young age inspired her and gave her hope.

Shanel comments, "He was so tiny and at times he would become so ill that the doctors would tell us to be prepared to say good-bye at any moment. It was very tough on our family, but he would always bounce back and had such a feisty spirit. It was easy to stay positive watching him go."

What also kept her positive was the support of other preemie families that she connected with while in the NICU and through support groups.

Truth or Consequence…
When Truth Is The Consequence And Consequence Is The Truth.
Op-Ed By JV Howard

Here we are steadfast ensconced in a web of pandemic spinnerets, social unrest, economic paralysis, political malfeasance, and a media frenzy trying to report the truth. But fake news, fact checking summaries, and life and death consequences make the truth sacramental.

Truth defined is a verified or indisputable fact, proposition, principle, or the like. Consequence is defined an act or instance of following something as an effect, result, or outcome.

The term ‘truth’ is used throughout our lives like those who testify in court are asked to swear they will tell “the truth and nothing but the whole truth”, or hear grandma utter” ain’t that the truth”;  in the movie a few good men you can here “You can’t handle the truth” - which is most appropriate during this cycle of uncertainty. Here’s why; 

You can choose your action but you can’t choose the consequence of those actions. You can choose to be an alcoholic but you can’t choose cirrhosis of the liver. You can choose to deny climate change but you can’t choose the tsunami that has marked your location. 

It is an “incontrovertible truth” that there are myriad variables external to our control, for example  mother natures rant, DNA mutations, father times vigilance, and worldly disease. And we except these truth without fanfare, panoply, and second guessing but these truth, like much before us, underscore consequences that fortify, buttress, and entrench the legitimacy of truth in principle. Another example, climate change - mother natures rant - is profoundly consequential when its impact is more and more devastating ; tsunami, heatwave, massive tornadoes, ice melts, habitat extinction, floods, etc are all consequences- due to man’s neglect, disdain, and planetary indifference.

BLACK-LED NON-PROFIT DEVELOPER TO RAISE $1.5M FOR HOUSING ACQUISITION/REHABILITATION

Nationwide --  Virginia Housing and Community Development Corporation (VHCDC), a certified black-led Community Development Entity (CDE), is seeking equity investors for up to $1.5 million to scale its investment model of acquiring, renovating, leasing, and selling single-family homes in low-income communities.

"We have a model that works for black investors. Whether they're individuals, families, or minority-owned small businesses, we provide an opportunity for regular income, by acquiring run-down, foreclosed homes and turning those structures into quality, affordable housing for disabled and homeless veterans, ex-offenders, and low- to moderate-income families - those who need it most," said James R. Taylor, Founder and President of VHCDC.

"We've worked hard the past few years to build a pipeline of first-time home buyers and position our organization to acquire and rehabilitate foreclosed properties, which enables us to deliver quality, affordable housing to renters and first-time homebuyers alike," he said.

"We succeeded in attracting a small number of local investors in the past three years who receive regular dividends of about 4% every six months. Our ROI since July 2017 is 28.52%, which we believe is a decent return. Now is the time to scale our Partnership. There's plenty of real estate in our communities in need of attention, a significant number of disabled/homeless veterans and ex-offenders desperately in need of affordable housing, and plenty of black professionals who can invest in their backyards. We need to make this happen," said Mr. Taylor.

ENTREPRENEURS KICK OFF NATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO FUND BLACK BUSINESSES AND BRIDGE THE BLACK WEALTH GAP

Fairfax, VA --  As part of a national movement to bridge the Black wealth gap, a group of entrepreneurs has launched The 10K Project(TM) - a 100% Black-owned equity crowdfunding platform to create a new generation of Black businesses.

The project allows micro investors to join for $100 and have the opportunity to invest in Black-owned small businesses. If 10,000 people to invest as little as $100, then there would be $1 million to support these businesses. In addition to accessing opportunities to invest, members will have access to financial literacy webinars, wealth building educational resources, community forums, and the ability to network and learn from each other.

"I believe Black entrepreneurs need a platform where they can find investors since many are not likely to get loans from banks or family members," said Cheree Warrick, a co-founder and the project's CEO. The 10K Project(TM) tells entrepreneurs to bring their innovative ideas and pitch those ideas to the community.

91 Black Businesses Made $49 Million In Sales Mostly After The COVID-19 Crisis


Traffic Sales and Profit mastermind cohort proves that Black-owned businesses can thrive despite the COVID-19 crisis.

Nationwide -- Traffic Sales and Profit (TSP), a powerful network and Facebook group of almost 14,000 purpose-driven African American entrepreneurs, has announced that 91 of the Black business owners in their tribe have worked together to collectively generate $49 million in sales within just one year (from July 2019 to July 2020). Led by its founder, Lamar Tyler, the members of TSP are owners of everything from brick-and-mortar stores to e-commerce brands to service and product-based businesses.

What's even more interesting is that this group of Black-owned businesses, called the TSP Mastermind, was able to generate most of that revenue AFTER the COVID-19 pandemic began. This proves that there is another side to the story reported by CBS News and other news outlets that 41% of Black-owned businesses have closed for good due to COVID-19.

How are they doing this?

Via his Facebook group, events, and courses, Tyler has been extremely instrumental in providing surefire systems and strategies that help small businesses and entrepreneurs grow, scale, and generate profits with ease.

"Black businesses are growing even in the midst of crisis," he says. "Especially, those that are positioned to leverage digital marketing and sales strategies."

He adds, "Black businesses need a safe space where they can lean in for support around the three keys to growth that we've discovered over the years. They are mindset, strategy, and execution. Without all three, it's impossible to grow and reach your goals."

Tyler's keys to success are proven through the startling accomplishments of his 12-month mentorship program designed to elevate businesses to their next level of success. His tribe's top-performing businesses include:

  • AfricanAncestry.com
  • CurlMix
  • Izzy and Liv
  • Freres Branchiaux
  • Confidence By Gabby Goodwin
  • CurlKit
  • Urban Intellectuals
  • Naturalicious
  • Bamblu
  • the Nikki Klugh Design Group...

...and many others.

FORMERLY HOMELESS WOMAN WHO ESCAPED PROSTITUTION SHARES HER POWERFUL STORY, LAUNCHES ONLINE COURSE


Nationwide  Transformational coach, Diseree Clay, has taken her skill of transformation and shifted this formula that has helped her in her own pursuits into the launch of her new course, "Think Big, Start Small," now available on her website, DisereeClay.com. This innovative course is targeted toward women who seek to transform into the best version of themselves and are ready, willing, and able to grow. Clay's motivation for crafting this course stems for her unending desire to see people live a life on the other side of the window to personal freedom.

Diseree comments, "Low self-esteem, abortions, molestation, prostitution, divorce, homelessness, and single parenting have together and separately given me a front-row seat in my own 'classroom of hopelessness'. But with the help of my God, I refused to give in to the unhealthy and festering circumstances that surrounded my youth."
