I tend to think that certain businesses will prosper no matter what the economic climate is. Obama being put in office is great and all (indeed, I voted for him), but I still operate on the belief that if a business idea is useless, it'll fail no matter what Washington looks like. And on the flipside, it'll do great no matter what DC is doing if it helps folks and thus, they really see the value in whatever the product is. I only caution against people thinking that now that Obama is in office any and everything will prosper. Sometimes that won't be the case...
I am happy you feel that way. It makes businesses more determined and focused on success and the people. Always be on your toes because no matter who is in office, your business depends on the people and what is in demand. Thanks for your response. It does and will help people.
My business is totally geared to black women embracing their natural hair. So I hope that having Barack as a figure head will motivate black people to feel proud of ourselves. A lot of ladies are learning about the negative affects of relaxers and weaves and have started going natural and getting locks as well. That helps my business. Even in times like these we as black women will still uphold our beauty. My products are so unique and priced within means that they continue to surprise me with growing orders.
Thank you for your business. My hair gets nappy pretty quick and it is nice to find products out there geared to helping the different texture hairs. Good luck on your business and if you would like for me to help you find business or customers, let me know. I have an online mall and if you would like one for free, let me know as well.
This is a great post, which is why I have decided to feature it on 'The Business', a digital magazine featuring the best Small Business discussions and material on the BBWO Network. This is a new feature, so it is still being customized and I would love your feedback. Feel free to add comments on 'The Business' page. I've been wanting to set this up for a while now, especially after reading the responses I got from my post 'Putting the Business Back in BBWO.' As our community gets bigger, it is becoming a SPAM magnet, and I want to ensure that does not happen. We are experts in our own right with tons of info and experiences to share, which is what I want BBWO to continue to be about. If you feel as I do, great! Continue writing these wonderful posts and I will do all that I can to promote you and your business.
Quick tip: If you haven't already done so, feel free to include your web banner or business details at the bottom of this post. I hope that with the new Magazine page, more traffic will be directed to your way!
Thank you! I thought this subject would be applicable with the way the economy is. Businesses have to change with the people, after all, the people are our customers. So, it is important to keep track of the economy and what is going on. Thank you for responding to my post.
My business is a mall that helps non-profit organizations. Right now, the business itself is supporting One-Child-At-A-Time and they have chosen a young gifted boy from Africa to receive the donations for this month. If anyone wants to know more, they can visit, http://www.mypowermall.com/biz/home/96348. The mall is free and you make money by giving the malls away. People shop in their own malls and you make money. But, I just don't think about the money part, I think about what I can do.
That is beautiful. You keep going. I am going to keep on because no matter what happens in the White House, I have to believe and stick with the growing population and times. Businesses will change rather who is in charge or not. Great response. If you have a business, let me know and I will check it out. I have my own business but it never hurts to have more than one, I always say.
