"It was very disheartening to hear that the AVERAGE annual revenue for African-American business owners was only $38,000."

Although this is a sad commentary of our times, we can change this number. The key is to start encouraging young African American women to consider career options in business ownnership early in life, provide entreprenuerial education opportunities in schools and develop business mentoring programs within African American social and faith based organizations.

That number is very dismal, but I have faith that if people just put there minds to it we could open more business and generate more revenue. Microsoft just launched a website geared towards women who want to open their own business. The website has helpful resources like easy design websites for first time users.

I'm an official Microsoft ambassador and right now we're really trying to scale up our connections with influential bloggers like yourself. I'd love to share with you some of the stuff we've been doing in the last couple months to help women entrepreneurs; we're really committed to providing all the necessary resources to help women start, grow and expand their business.
We just wrapped up a women's entrepreneurial tour across the US called “Vision To Venture;” the response and turn-out was great!
I'd really love your take on some of the offerings we have right now; I would have contacted you via email but I didn't know which was the best way to reach you.

Thank you so much, I hope I didn't overstep my bounds by directly contacting you. Definitely get back to me if I’ve piqued your interest-- I’d love to share more info with you.
