Atlanta, GA — A recent study conducted by the Entrepreneurs Incubator Institute revealed that black businesses fail at a rate 18 times higher thanthat of their white counterparts with the exact same qualifications.
The report cited that blacks are unfairly expected to achieve at the same levels as whites due to the broad stroke comparisons. Devin Robinson, business and economics professor and founder of EII stated, “The failure in black businesses often starts from the owner’s youth and discriminatory factors. Most blacks are only motivated to become entrepreneurs when corporate America rejects them. This rejection is often due to a criminal conviction, culture disconnect, underperforming aptitude or something that happened to that person as a youth. In addition, schools often put more energy into high performing students, leading to even better performance out of them. Average or underperforming students are rarely given enough attention and development, leading to worse performances.”
After a long day at work, there is nothing like a hot bath or shower to release the stresses of the day. Various scented shower gels, bubble baths, and bar soaps are all choices at our fingertips to assist in our relaxation. But rarely do we find any bath products that assist in skin moisturizing or acne breakouts without the smell coming across as medicinal.
Kimeli Wade is a go-getter who has found her niche in the soap industry. The bars are uniquely designed and the smell is wonderful. I was taken aback to hear some of the skin soothing effects of the products. This week, Wade shares her journey with us.
