BCC's Feb. 12 Black History month event featured local business owners ranging from Yolanda Rogers and Wanna Whitted, co-owners of GiGi’s shoe boutique, to Training Wheels founder Tami Easter.
Joe and Moe Auto Service co-owner Joe Stanley and Black Pages USA President Gerry McCants also shared their advice to help motivate everyone in the audience to succeed and follow their dreams.
After the presenters spoke, the floor was opened for a question and answer session.
All agreed hard work and determination are the keys to success.
Several presenters also spoke about the struggling economy and suggested the students in the audience consider opening their own businesses.
