“The black community has many negative stereotypes and the only way to change them is through building better positive ones to replace them.”

I forget who said that quote to me but it got me thinking about our black business community and all the stereotypes I have heard and what can be done about them.

– Customer Service is Bad and Rude

– Prices are too high

– No one answers the phone

– We do not have a united community

I know I have failed to answer my phone at an acceptable rate and I used to just make excuses for it.  That is until I was told that I have a bad habit and it needs to be worked on if I want to progress as a business owner.  This led me to find solutions to the problem and find an answering service to make sure that no phone calls are missed.

The stereotype that I feel we can tackle is the lack of a united community and we can change that negative to a positive with the Afro Caribbean  Business Network.  We are looking forward to meeting all the business owners that want to grow their company.

Stay tuned for more details…
