Atlanta businesswoman announces the birth of e-Black Women Network™ – a network designed specifically for African-American women who:
· Want to start a business and need guidance starting the business.
· Own a business but wants to increase her business’ visibility by learning effective marketing strategies.
· Who want to start a business but are unsure of what business to start.
Businesses owned by Black women have exploded in recent years. Articles recently published on the Fortune and Huffington Post websites indicate that since 1997, the percentage increase of Black women-owned business is a whopping 322% since 1997. Carmin Wharton, founder of e-BlackWomenNetwork asserts, “This significant increase in Black female-owned businesses is due to the fact that no matter how much education, experience and talent Black women bring to the workforce, we are routinely passed over for promotions, are not paid fairly and are often made to choose between long hours and caring for our families.”
The purpose of e-Black Women Network™ is to provide women with the tools, resources, information, motivation and networking opportunities to help launch them into entrepreneurship. Wharton states, “Our goal is to help Black women take their business from start up to prosperity – on their own terms. Starting a business on our own terms is important because when a Black woman starts a business, she is usually still working full time, maybe a single parent or caring for an elderly family member and, we are routinely denied bank business loans so we often have to bootstrap our startup businesses.” Networking luncheons and other events are also offered where women can sell their products and services and collaborate with other business women.
e-BlackWomenNetwork offers a $30 monthly and semi-annual membership option where women are coached every month on a specific business topic, including Q&A sessions and goal-setting workshops. The network also offers home-study coaching packages, group coaching and one-on-one VIP coaching. Wharton says, “We also offer a large number of freebies such as training webinars, informative teleseminars and e-Books. I think the greatest thing we offer is inspiration and motivation; we support Black women as they move through one of the greatest journeys of their life – becoming an entrepreneur.”
