Going into our fourth year broods us with a certain calm. HBCU Money™ continues to be a labor of love and passion. The past twelve months while not seeing the growth we expected were still progressive towards our ultimate goal of being a full service financial journalism company. Last year, we brought HBCU Politics™, a political journalism site, into our fold completely with plans to add more sites in the coming years. We believed then and we believe now that there can never be too many quality voices speaking to the eclectic interest of HBCUers around the world. Entrepreneurship is about patience and perseverance. Something we here at HM continue to exude in spades despite setbacks along the way. The HBCUpreneur Corner™ continues to highlight the growing presence of entrepreneurs coming from HBCU ranks who are no longer content at getting jobs, but creating them. Our interview last year with HBCU endowment star, The University of Virgin Islands’ executive director Dr. Haldane Davies, was another shining moment for us giving voice to HBCUs who are lesser known by the mainstream as they forge ahead building a stronger foundation for generations to come. These stories and more are the ones we will continue to tell along with the pertinent economic, financial, and investment information that is vital to our community and its growth.
It is a continued honor to serve as Editor-In-Chief of HBCU Money™ and look forward continuing to do so. There is no time to rest. Enjoy the moment. Now, let us get back to work because as our motto states “Our Money Matters”.
