I am a member of the National Black Business Trade Association (NBBTA) and they have developed a simple-yet-powerful way for Black businesses and consumers to grow financially together. NBBTA gets to grow its membership rolls. Black businesses and consumers get access to lots of benefits that save them money and make them money. PLUS, you get PAID for sharing the idea of "recycling Black dollars" with others. The program works. I started in early December, 2001 and got paid over $300 just in time for the holidays. All I did was join the FREE program and them upgraded to NBBTA Membership for $49.95 and told a few people to do the same thing. They just duplicated my effort and my network started to grow! I expect to do much better each month as it continues to grow. The best thing about it is, I feel good doing something I think is positive as it relates to Black businesses and working with my people. My goal is to earn enough money on a residual basis to create my own "venture capital" fund. I will use most of the money to fund my own business idea without any assistance. I know networking is the answer to many of our problems. We just have to take the time to do it. We network information all the time. Mostly about things we can't get paid from, like what's up at the movies or on tv, or who's who in hip-hop or rap. Information is power, but it has to have an application and not just be amusing. I am sharing this information here in hopes of encouraging some of you to join me. But more importantly, I want you to think about what we can do and the power we have when we work or NETWORK together. For those who don't like the idea of networking and making money, this is not for you. Keep doing what you're doing. I hope its working for you and for your family and the community. NBBTA is working and has been since 1993 to help small business owners and entrepreneurs succeed. Its hard getting access to capital from banks and other sources for Black businesses. We as a people have access to over 530 billion dollars. How we use most of the money is our problem. If you would like to join NBBTA's effort at recycling Black dollars you will need a "sponsor".
