Grow your bottom line, one connection at a time
What Minority-owned businesses want is more customers. However, that is easier said that done. A national poll conducted by Small Business Majority revealed the drastic set of challenges that small business owners are facing today, especially entrepreneurs of color. They are experiencing systemic barriers to access financing and business resources.
Challenges facing minority businesses aren’t new. These issues have stymied business owners of color for generations. Starting a small business as a minority is not so different from challenges faced by other small business owners, except minorities face more hurdles and obstacles to overcome. Ultimately, the goal of all owners is to engage more customers and give customers more than what they expected.

MBA is a great organization that collectively brings minority businesses together to grow and expand. I am the owner of Forever Yung Day Spa. On the first meeting of attending, I was able to make business contacts that will help grow my business. One way is I met with the CEO of a large health care company in Spartanburg and surrounding county. He is willing to bring awareness to self care for their employees, with a discount program utilizing my business. I truly believe this organization will impact the growth of many businesses.
