The beauty business is a huge booming business and black people spend a great deal of money for beauty supplies every year. In fact, we buy so many beauty products that our black dollars are able to support hundreds of beauty supply stores in our communities, city by city. Every store I’ve ever been in has always had a brisk business no matter what day of the week or time of the day I go into them.
There’s an adage that states: in our communities there’s a church, liquor store or chinese restaurant on every corner. Let’s add beauty supply store to that list. We very rarely see our faces as owners in these establishments. Yet we spend millions of dollars yearly according to statistics.
We’ve been told that the Koreans have such a lockdown on the industry, that it’s impossible to breakthrough and become a black owner of a beauty supply store. We feel that the Koreans have complete control over the product and distribution and they have effectively blocked black people from ever breaking in to the business.
But according entrepreneur Devin Robinson, black people CAN break into this business and start collecting some of the millions of dollars that we spend in this industry. So how do we go about doing this, when we don’t have the connections, the business savvy, the money, or lines of credit? Devin Robinson, who is the creator of Business Supply Institute at www.takingitbackblack.com teaches us. Listen and learn, research and implement.
