One of the things I believe in very passionately is economic independence for the black community. In my personal life, I am trying to establish success through affiliate marketing and Google Adsense. It is REALLY frustrating... only pennies are coming in, but I am learning each step of the way and feel I am getting closer. I have chosen this as my entreprenurial path because it is low-cost and it helps you develop the skills necessary for marketing. After online success, (WHENEVER that will happen), my goal is to expand on brick and mortars. What is your entreprenurial venture? Do you believe in the online to offline approach (as I do), or would you rather just go on and take out a loan and establish a business outside right now? Or do you believe in other approaches... my dad saw real estate as the answer. And how do you stay focused even if right now you are not seeing the success you desire?
