    Loved the article. It was great that you supplied business owners with free website tools. It seems so expensive and at times overwhelming to start a new business, but you broke it down in a practical way that everyone can follow!

    This article is very important. Instilling the values of great business practices and preparation in the next generation of Black entrepreneurs. My favorite tip was the one about planning. Too often, we fail to plan and wonder why things are not going well. We all have to remember that planning is key to success.

      This is a very good article for young people who need help with the planning and management aspects of a small enterprise. I would add one other important tip for young people.
      More often than not, many people quit or fail before this phase due to their inability to make the right choice in the selection of a product or service. The ability to identify the right business opportunity is the most important task for the new youth entrepreneur. Learning to assess your own skills as well as the goods and service needs in a community is an important entrepreneurial skill. In fact, for those of us who teach youth entrepreneurship, it is a life skill.

    Entrepreneurship is essential for youth development, as Vitamin C is vital for the body. However, without INNOVATION, we are transferring process and methods to perfect capitalism, without the protein that protect the body against germs. As a social entrepreneur, and self-proclaimed Digipreneur, I applaud the consistency Tina has endeavored to share her ministry with youth. I am confident her passion will help us all elevate the game by REDEFINING the marketplace we know will reflect tomorrow.
