Working for someone else can be hell. As Black Entrepreneurs we can experience being targeted, feeling taken advantage of, or worse being made to feel invisible. Yet the road to self-employment for us isn’t easy. It’s filled with hurdles, such as identifying your audience, managing others’ racial biases, while remaining dedicated to your vision and your products.
In our efforts to make our business the best it can be, our own needs and health can become neglected. Specifically, our mental health can often be the last on our list of needs to get any attention. Where do you turn when you’ve experienced self-doubt? How do you manage stress and worry that stalls your projects? When is it a good time to step back and address fear about what you’ve created?
Well this is THE SPACE; this is OUR SPACE as Black Entrepreneurs to get those needs met. This movement is both professional and oh so personal. I’m glad you’ve found us. Welcome to the family!
