Mentoring Our Youth
I am a subscriber to The Network Journal. I find your articles on African issues interesting and thoughtful. I also think that you should consider optimizing the contribution your annual edition [the March issue] featuring 25 Influential Black Women in Business makes to the community. For example, the women you honor are role models for our youth, and, as a group, should be put in direct communication with young people through The Network Journal to focus on a message of achievement.

Expanding Your Coverage
I am a longtime subscriber to TNJ and appreciate its valuable information. In addition to your current features, however, I would like to see stories on successful immigrant entrepreneurs who are Black, government policies in favor or against small business, especially policies of the federal government, and on Blacks in leadership roles, such as the president of a Historically Black College. Strategic planning for business growth is another topic, I believe, will be of interest to small business owners.
