Dante LeePublished by SmileyBooks, Black Business Secrets is dedicated to transforming the devastating Census Bureau statistics that African Americans are much more likely to fail in business than their white, Asian, or Latino counterparts due to lack of fundamental business education, and insufficient economic development and resources.

Any entrepreneur of any race can benefit from this book, but this content has been specifically designed to challenge and inspire African Americans because our need is greater and our potential is now limitless.

The author, 30 year old entrepreneur Dante Lee, President/CEO of Diversity City Media and co-founder of Lee Moss Media, is an innovative business person and prolific blogger. Lee, showcased in Ebony and Black Enterprise magazines, has created such industry-leading websites as BlackPR.com and BlackNews.com.
