For book lovers, finding an elegant tome can be just as exciting as discovering treasure is for an explorer. Coming across a book you’ve been hunting for years--or simply finding one that’s a great read--can make you feel complete, in a way. Collecting and storing them, however, can become problematic if you don’t have the room or aren’t sure how to properly take care of them. The downside to physical books is that they deteriorate with age, and for someone who likes to collect rare, hard-to-find, or vintage tomes, that can become an issue pretty quickly.

There is a new star heading to the 2018 Winter Olympics and she's full of Black Girl Magic.

This old strategy has mostly expired as employers currently have no loyalty to employees who have enriched them via their labor. I posted that same question on my Facebook page.

As more Black people begin to make the decision to empower their own people and businesses, the need to find those businesses is growing daily. Everyday consumers wake up with the intent to find and support "Black Owned" businesses only to realize that they are having trouble finding them. According to analytic data provided by one of the nation's most popular directory, I have created a list of the top five states searching for Black business services and products.

One of the many obstacles that the Black Business Owners face is the lack of capital to start a business. Add to that the fact that bank loans are very difficult to secure. Crowdfunding serves as a viable means of allowing aspiring Entrepreneurs to meet the initial costs of start up or to give the business a financial boost.
