Ep 23 – Entrepreneurship – You have to pay the cost to be the boss

In this episode, Erika and Amber discuss entrepreneurship and whether it really is the key to economic freedom and growth for Black people. Should we all aspire to be our own bosses? Is ownership a means to overcoming the inequality inherent in American capitalism? Do Black entrepreneurs have it harder than others in building and maintaining their businesses? We take a look at the historical data and also get a first-hand account from an actual Black entrepreneur. Press play to get the scoop.


  1. Support a Black business. Do it as an act of subversive joy with the right expectations just to put a smile on another brother’s or sister’s face. We know it could cost you a little but more, but help the people out. 🙂
  2. For the Brokers who have taken the leap into entrepreneurship, we want to hear from you. Plug your business on IG, Facebook and Twitter and tag us and use the hashtags #bhm and #blackhistorymonth.
