As they build rapport, owners can now introduce their products and services. Based on the initial interaction with each other, this increases the chances of them doing business with each other in the future. Our goal is to continue inspiring consumers to consistently support black-owned businesses. Why is Urban Atlanta so important... The Problem: According to a 2015 Nielsen report, the percentage of African-Americans earning more than $50,000 a year increased from 30 to 36 percent from 2005 to 2013, and those earning more than $75,000 increased from 15 to 20 percent. That growth has translated to $1.2 trillion in annual buying power for Blacks. But the same study shows the average Black dollar lasts only hours within our community, and that lack of reinvestment—i.e., not supporting Black-owned banks and businesses—has bolstered the wealth gap between us and other ethnicities. Staying “community poor” is a choice. The Solution: We can change our collective financial standing by following the successful models of other racial groups and directing spending into our own pockets via investing in African-American-owned companies, venture capital and private equity firms and high-growth entrepreneurship opportunities.  Read more at EBONY http://www.ebony.com/career-finance/recycling-black-dollars-guide#ixzz4thXHbGsq
