Letter

Well, this has been one hell of a year. I needed some time to sort through our magazine’s path while deciding on what it means to be a Young Black Entrepreneur in our new norm. Honestly so much has changed so quickly and we were preparing for this digital change over the last decade, but sadly so many of our YBEs were not prepared for this shift. I am very fortunate that we were prepared for this digital storm, just not prepared for COVID.

It is one thing to have to navigate such a hard business change, but to have to manage the panic surrounding our safety and the health of our loved ones is another issue. My team and I started building this platform over six years ago, sharing our lessons, lumps, laughter and victories along the way. We embraced change and technology while encouraging our readers to do the same. Unfortunately in our communities we tend to be more reactive than proactive. 

By the time most of our people are willing to make the needed technological changes it is too late. Years and years of hard work can be swept away in a matter of months. Sadly, that is where we are now for so many of our Black-owned businesses…swept away. So many will not recover and those who do, will have had to embrace the change and digital flexibility needed to be successful in our new norm.

Our magazine will continue to be a stable source of information and inspiration for our community. I am not so far removed from the pains and impacts of COVID. Like you, I am also looking for a better way to carry on safely while being successful. Over the years my entrepreneurial ears and eyes have been trained to learn the difference between the light at an end of a tunnel, compared to the light from a train barreling full-speed  down the tracks coming my way. 

Please do not be discouraged by your current situation and use this as a learning opportunity to better yourself along with your business. Stay focused and keep it moving. The ‘pause’ is a part of the process of success. Just don’t let your ‘pause’ become your reason to stop.
