About BuyBlack Podcast

Thanks for visiting!

 

If you’re a fan of the show, you probably already know why we’re here.  If not, let me get you up to speed.

My name is Gerald Jones. I'm the voice behind BuyBlack Podcast, and this project is the opening drive toward accomplishing my life's mission.

In the summer of 2016 I had just graduated with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Nebraska Wesleyan University.  I had been very successful in my consulting job over the previous six years, but I was hungry to learn about entrepreneurship and start a business of my own.  The initial plan was to lean on my expertise in training and performance to start a small consulting firm, but on July 5th, 2016 it became clear that my mission was meant to be much larger than that.

The murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile affected me more deeply than any previous similar events.  In their wake, I knew that whatever project I developed needed to have the goal of contributing to long-term positive change for the Black Community.  It took nine months of trial and error before the BuyBlack Podcast idea materialized, but today the mission is clear. Together, you and I will use this platform to reshape our Community, this nation, and the world. Let's Get Started!

If you've listened to the show, you know how important I believe it is to define your Mission, articulate your Vision, and abide by a set of written Core Values in order to achieve success in anything. So, here they are for BuyBlack Podcast. If you ever wonder why this project exists, what it's here to accomplish, or if you want to help somebody else "Get It", you can always return to this page for the answers.

Bottom Line: Finding black-owned businesses, building networks, and accessing resources has been complicated and frustrating for way too long.
