Why did you become an Entrepreneur?
While studying at a top 20 MBA program, I learned about African American business. I found that there is a great opportunity for African Americans to take advantage of our social position. Although most news outlets focus on the negative, I am focused on the fact that African's have the highest buying power we have ever had and we want to buy from one another when the products are high quality and add real value. I started PurchaseBlack to make those businesses easy to buy from online to make Black people's lives more high quality through great products!
Why did you choose your business niche?
African Americans are still underserved in the market, and there is a need for the value PurchaseBlack provides. We want to give African American online shoppers a real option to get great products made with them in mind. We are NOT a directory, we are like an Amazon or Etsy, where businesses offer their own products through our platform, and we wanted those products to be things that African Americans love
Most Exciting Life Experience?
Visiting Black Carnival in Brazil and learning that Black Brazilians are just like Black Americans! Look the same, act the same, enjoy the same activities. We are truly brother and sister!

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”
Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
