The Importance of Articulating Your Business Value
Our CEO Angelina Darrisaw, sat down with CNBC'S Make It to discuss advice for small business owners of color.
“'They always say you don’t know about racism and inequity until you see it in your face,” Darrisaw tells CNBC Make It. “In going from one part of New York to another part, it was really clear to see access gaps that existed.'”
“'Those early experiences, seeing how the zip code we lived in could determine what you had access and opportunities to do, made such an impact on me,” Darrisaw says. “I knew that in some way my life was going to be dedicated to closing gaps.'”
And that’s exactly what Darrisaw is doing. After a successful career working in business development and marketing at media companies like ESPN and Viacom, in 2015, Darrisaw launched C-Suite Coach to design coaching programs for small business owners."
