Entrepreneurs Starting Businesses During the Recession
(City Flight) — The five African Americans entrepreneurs featured in this story each started their business for different reasons, such as need resulting from losing a job, or family obligations that required a lot of their time. There is one theme that resonates throughout that drives them to succeed in running their businesses– they love the new-found freedom of being the boss. They love being creative, spontaneous and making their own business decisions. Also, they each seem to understand that it takes time before seeing a profit in their business, but because they are doing what they love, they know the money will follow.
