African American Women and Entrepreneurship

In February, the National Women'’s Business Council (NWBC) published a series of facts about businesses owned by African American women. Among those facts was this:
The ten states with the highest survival rates from 1997 to 2000 among African American women-owned employer establishments were: Oklahoma (89% survival); New York (87%); Arizona (83%); Maryland (81%); Nebraska (81%); Alabama (79%); Michigan (78%); Wisconsin (78%); Pennsylvania (77%); and Washington (77%).
Overall the NWBC reported both positives and negatives that these businesses are facing. The most overwhelming positive is that businesses owned by African American women exist AND are having a positive impact.

Great info here, thank you for sharing it online. It always amazes me just how many people share their views and personal information openly like we do on the web. I think it helps get everyone off the couch and away from the television!

Lately I started up my own blog on acne site...but I still spend hours a day reading about other people's experiences - your's were a great read!
