Black Small Business Grants

FedEx Small Business Grant Contest Fedex Small Business Grant Contest
Fedex allows business owners and entrepreneurs to register and submit their business story and photos. Once the application is approved and the voting period begins, they can vote for their own business once a day – and get their friends, customers, and associates to also vote everyday. The number of votes received will boost your visibility in the contest and is one factor that FedEx will consider when selecting the top 100 finalists and the winners. Grant awards range from $1,000 to $25,000.

About Mastering You

"Mastering You" is about helping African American's to see their value in this world. I post only positive stories and information about what African American's have contributed to society in the past and currently. I don't post anything about Sports, Entertainment, Religion, or Politics. I also don't post anything that has a negative spin. While I am aware that there are negative things happening all over the world and that most people focus on the above four topics when it comes to African American's that is not my goal. If all you heard was negativity about any race that's all you will come to expect from them and everything else will be out of the norm. My goal is to show everyone that the negativity is often out of the norm, or at best they are equal to the positive. Just like every other race.
