I’m Clyde Anderson, former CNN Business and Money Analyst. During my career in the media, I’ve interviewed hundreds of Black entrepreneurs, including Daymond John, Steve Harvey, Michael V. Roberts, Jamie Foxx, Hill Harper, 2 Chainz and many more about establishing wealth through entrepreneurship. Now as founder and host of a new daily podcast, Doing Business While Black, I’ll share my brand of empowerment where I’ll transport you into the world of a Black Business Owner.
An entrepreneur to my core, I’m passionate about helping other Black entrepreneurs solve problems, fill needs and overcome obstacles to thrive. On the Doing Business While Black podcast, I interview insightful entrepreneurs and industry experts to help listeners create a mindset to navigate the world of business ownership. We’ll share stories of Black enterprise, providing insight to longstanding stereotypes and stigmas about Black-owned businesses that contribute to the wealth gap, unjust profiling and the actions of Black business owners that could fuel negative perceptions. We’ll also explore solutions to help businesses improve and excel. My goal is to help build stronger black businesses that are more financially sound, informed, organized, and armed with success strategies necessary for business growth and prosperity. It’s time to take control of the future, rewrite the narrative, and redefine Black business success.
