I have a passion for helping people, especially people living in poverty, recognize their purpose and worth. I'm am committed to the economic growth and development of communities of color. Through blogging about black entrepreneurs, I hope to celebrate those in business and encourage others to go into business for themselves. My true mission is to create social awareness. There is no social justice without economic empowerment. It is our responsibility to invest in our communities. Keeping more of our money in our own neighborhoods does just that when we buy from, partner with, and support black owned businesses.
What I Do:
I am on a journey to create a platform for black and minority business owners to promote their products and services. Simple as that! Each episode will be available on YouTube to view and share. You will also find product and service reviews ALL in an effort to increase the patronage of #BlackOwnedBusinesses and to encourage entrepreneurship in the black community.
How I Do It:
I seek out #BOB's and invite them to be guests on Minority Report. I also purchase products and services, giving an unbiased and an unsolicited review. Reviews are based on multiple uses as the product is intended. I share my experience. And hopefully you will want to buy just like I did!!!
Hands-on Use and Evaluation
I am committed to obtaining and using the products and services I review. I purchase them as a regular consumer and advise the seller that I intend to use for a product for consumer review purposes (I accept ALL free samples). I use them as any consumer would to help identify and assess the most important features and attributes.
Scoring & Ranking
NONE! I'm not here to judge but to share info! I may compare products to give context to my viewing audience, but I do not rank - I leave that up to you!
As Minority Report grows, businesses that may have been featured or have received a product review will become sponsors or advertise on my upcoming website. Partnering with me by paying to advertise on my site does not guarantee a “favorable review”. Again, I have full editorial independence. None of my interviews or reviews will be bought, they are not for sale - let's support one another.
Since products, services, and marketplaces inevitably change over time, I plan to provide updated corporate news, reviews and products as #BOB's make them available to me.
