The only sure thing in that equation is that they will inevitably blame some external factor, instead of taking responsibility for the choices they make. Bad choices which lead a business down the path of self destruction are most likely based on a get rich quick scheme and greed, instead of taking the time to build a quality product.

And I thought this information might be useful to other minority entrepreneurs.
