The #MyBlackBiz Challenege has begun and entrepreneurs are not looking back.
Inspired by the “I am a Black Man” challenge of earlier in 2020, the #MyBlackBiz Challenge highlights business owners and entrepreneurs across America in hopes of showcasing the vast amount of black businesses across our country. Entrepreneurs, franchisees and business owners are asked to simply copy and paste the below message, tag others and share their story as a black business person with the world. The objective of this challenge is to truly share with the world how important the African American business ecosystem is to our communities and how large it truly is within your own network. We are here to uplift black businesses, and with this challenge, we believe that we are giving owners and entrepreneurs a voice to share their story, highlight and market their business, as well as to garner support by their following and others. We will select individuals who have used the hashtag #MyBlackBiz to share them on all of our platforms.
Here is the text:
I am a BLACK Business Owner!….. I build…. I do not tear down other BLACK businesses!…. I have felt the pain of being torn down and I have decided I will be deliberate about building and supporting others and their endeavors!•
If I did not tag you, please do not be offended. I tried to pick people and businesses I thought would do this challenge! All too often, we black business owners find it easier to criticize each other, instead of working with and building each other up. With all the negativity going around let us do something positive! #supportblackbusiness #myblackbiz #myblackbizchallenge•
Upload 1 picture of yourself or business… ONLY you or the business/brand. Then tag as many black businesses to do the same. Let us build our businesses up, instead of tearing ourselves down.•
🖤🖤Copy and paste🖤🖤 If I tagged you, don’t disappoint me!!
We hope that you get the opportunity to share in our challenge as we spread support for black owned businesses across the country.
