Recently, Donna Ennis, Atlanta MBDA Business Centers’ Project Director joined Gavin Ireland, the host of 7 Incomes podcast, to discuss her industry knowledge and experience with minority owned businesses. 7 Incomes is a podcast dedicated to honest conversations with current business leaders and major industry players. Dedicated to helping all business owners develop their own success stories, 7 Incomes offers honest, behind-the-scenes information and advice to help all business leaders make the most of their industry.
In this episode, Donna updates Gavin on the newest opportunities for the Atlanta MBDA Centers including the initial stages of a new Southeastern Innovation Hub developing in partnership with Morehouse College’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center as well as Preneurology Global. Donna and Gavin discuss current business trends and struggles such as gaining access to capital and developing company leadership. Offering her own advice from years of work with independent business owners, Donna explains to Gavin that one necessity for developing a business is for leaders to “work on their business” and not “for their business.”
