PRESS RELEASE Entrepreneurship is the vehicle which will allow African-American women to become financially solvent.
TAMPA – June 18, 2012 – Tampa business woman 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.
• Don’t desire to own a business but want to do business with other Black women who offer goods and services that are comparable and in many cases, better than mainstream America.
The purpose of e-Black Women Network™ is to provide women with the tools, resources, information, motivation and networking opportunities to facilitate the growth of their business. This network welcomes authors, speakers and entertainers. Basic membership is free and paid Premium In-person and Online memberships are also available. e-Black Women Network educates women through teleseminars, webinars, information products and business coaches. Networking luncheons and other events are also offered where women can sell their products and services and collaborate with other business women.
While minority business ownership has increased in recent years, Black women lag in this area. Eight percent (8%) of single White women own business, 4% of single Hispanic women own businesses and only ONE PERCENT (1%) of single Black women own businesses! Carmin Wharton, founder of e-Black Women Network asserts, “We have got to change this – NOW! I talk with so many Black women who believe that their key to economic security is through a business but they erroneously believe that they have to have a lot of money to start a business or they think they can’t start a business while working full- or part-time for someone else. Nothing is further from the truth and e-Black Women Network can show you how you can start a business inexpensively while you are still employed full- or part-time.”
Wharton shares a frightening statistic for Black women, “According to the March 2012 issue of Black Enterprise Magazine, a comparison of median wealth in America reveals that Black women are in serious – very serious financial trouble with a median wealth of only $100 compared to White women’s median wealth of $41,500 (this is NOT a typo!).”
