A New Jack Network

I just got a comment from somebody I'd like to get to know better, and it occurs to me that I've been sleeping on a particular aspect of Old School business. That is the business of business networking. Since I've been doing none of my own contracts in the past 9 months, I've gotten out of the day to day game of drumming up contacts and opportunities. Even though have my company on the back burner it is still alive. So where are all the black entreprenuers and small business owners? Let's look around and do some linking here folks... Maybe even set up a directory - The Black Business Blogroll...

I'll start with the Esteves Group, and then Grupo Utopia.

My concern with the normative Black professionals' approach to networking is in practice, it's more like a social mixer. I understand folks have to first become acquainted as a pretext to forming business relationships, but 'we' tend to shy away from doing the heavy lifting that's required when creating infrastructure.

More buppies need to think of networking as opportunities to build markets with trade partners instead of DIY client/customer databases.
