Did you know blacks own more smartphones than any other race? Updating their Facebook, tweeting about their bathroom experience to downloading the hottest songs to listen to on the bus are mainly what is done with these phones however there is so much more than just updating a status. How about networking? Building a brand? Starting a business? Yes I said start a business, no longer does it take millions of dollars to start a business. Unfortunately blacks do not have the resources sometimes to take advantage of money making opportunities. Technology is a beautiful thing if used for creating and doing good. If you had the resources to start a business what business would you start? Did you know you can make money blogging, creating ebooks or doing frelance writing? I do all of that on my handy smartphone that I insist is my boyfriend.
