- Beauty Shops/Barber Shops/Storefronts (Check out our new initiative "The Beauty and Barber Shop (or Storefront)" initiative (www.BlackBeautyandBarberShop.com).
- Bookstores (We own very few of these. And the ones that we do have have their own networks and don't know how to expand).
- Coffee Shops (You can meet your clients at these venues and give personal consulting or coaching sessions and stay as long as you like. They usually have FREE Wi-Fi).
- Restaurants (We do own a few restaurants. These restaurants can close down once a week and educate the community if we pay them or give them part of our profits).
- Hotels (We do own a few hotels (not many) so we need to set up this training and use these hotels when we have events).
- Recreational Centers (They have rooms for rent).
- Buildings with Rooms for Rent (We don't own any buildings to turn into business incubators to hold these meetings and training so we need to look for these types of buildings to buy or rent -- probably buy. We need to form black business districts by buying up blocks of buildings so let's talk to black investors in our cities).
- Churches (Only a hand-full will be opened to this idea, so move your membership to those churches).
- Libraries (Libraries are state-owned, but if they are in your community, we need to utilize them for training).
Most libraries will only allow Non-Profits to hold events there, so if you are a For-Profit business, they might turn you away. However, in my city, Austin, TX, they are opened to you having events there, but many are usually filled up.
In 2018, it's time to turn the table and look out for our own families. You have to admit these are good strategies and solutions for the entire family.
