Black in America: The Almighty Debt Sneak Preview

The truth is I don't need to see the Special airing in 1 hour to know exactly the major story line. The CNN website highlights topics such as "Keeping The Faith in Job Search" or "What the recession stole from Black America". This all sounds like "we are broke with little hope" in my mind.  There will be a small segment about the alternative (Entrepreneurship) for which is really truly the major answer to the "Almighty Debt". The two Roberts brothers from St. Louis are the business moguls that have an empire of hotels & TV stations. I am very interested to see these very successful men explain to us how they knew at an early age how to NOT become a "debt" statistic in a 2010 CNN Black in America special.

I think back on all the afro-centric publications where you often see the career progression section informs you "How to negotiate a raise" or "Surviving work place politics". However helpful this has been over the years those messages are out of date.  We must switch the conversation to how we take control over our career through entrepreneurship. Highlighting people like the Roberts brothers is a great way to see how several years of past hard work can allow you to reap the benefits. This can seem overwhelming for most people that never thought working for themselves is an option.  The better message is for us to make our community aware of realistic future successful start ups to show everyone must start somewhere to move forward. The discovery of a true passion can lead to an "organic" business start up that will be very attainable for those in our communities that want better for their families.

I could stay on this soap box for hours but the truth is if there were no Black in America "Almighty Debt" there would be no future CNN follow-up to highlight Expressive Beauty Inc, a company that offers a solution building the "Almighty Equity".  We at Expressive Beauty offer exceptional opportunities for you. If you are interested in becoming an entrepreneur or just looking for great hair products at an even better price; we’ve got exactly what you want. Our company was created to provide hair products and supplies to minorities through independent entrepreneurs.
