4 relationships that helped a millennial grow business to 7 figures

Running a successful business is hard – and building a successful business as a Black woman is even harder. But, the hurdles of entrepreneurship can be made easier with the right people in your corner.

Black women are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the US, according to JP Morgan, yet they face disproportionate financial barriers. A 2019 report from American Express found that women-owned businesses on average bring in $142,900 yearly. However, Black women founders only average $24,000 in profits.

Furthermore, Black women received just a “tiny fraction” of venture capital funding, according to Crunchbase, which found that they received only 0.34% of the total VC spent in the US last year.

Chelsea C. Williams, founder and CEO of Reimagine Talent Co., a workforce development and talent retention firm, has managed to grow her self-funded business to seven figures in revenue, and she says her relationships have played a huge role in her success .

“I didn’t do it alone,” Williams, 32, explains to CNBC Make It. “There are so many people who were my guide through, who were supportive, who opened the door and made the initial email communication to some of these organizations.”

According to Williams, these are the four essential relationships every business owner should have to “scale their impact.”

“They may not be doing it the way that you’re called to do it. They

US business equipment borrowings grew 11% in September

Oct 25 (Reuters) – US companies borrowed 11% more in September to finance their equipment investments compared with a year earlier, industry body Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) said on Tuesday, while raising doubts over the sustainability of this growth amid slowdown fears.

The companies signed up for $10.2 billion in new loans, leases and lines of credit last month, compared with $9.2 billion a year earlier, according to ELFA. Borrowings were up nearly 6% from January.

“Despite continued challenges in the supply chain, inflationary pressures and rising interest rates, the industry and our finance company continue to grow,” Star Hill Financial LLC Chief Executive Hollis Bufferd said in a statement.

“The probability of continued Federal Reserve interest rate increases on the horizon creates some uncertainty, but we are seeing increased demand for fixed rate leases and loans to support our clients’ capital expenditures. With an eye on global economic disruptions, I am cautiously optimistic, ” added Bufferd.

ELFA, which reports economic activity for the nearly $1-trillion equipment finance sector, said credit approvals totaled 77.3%, up from 75.2% in August.

The Washington-based body’s leasing and finance index measures the volume of commercial equipment financed in the United States.

The index is based on a survey of 25 members, including Bank of America Corp and financing affiliates or units of Caterpillar Inc, Dell Technologies Inc, Siemens AG, Canon Inc and Volvo AB.

The Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation, ELFA’s non-profit affiliate, said its confidence index in October stood at 45%,
