Jill Johnson and Helping Black-Owned Businesses

Soulful MBA Podcast

It’s no secret that the world of business is skewed to serve a certain group of people.If you aren’t a cis white male with an Ivy League degree and an impressive resume, your chances of ‘making it’ in this industry are slim.And if you’re a Black entrepreneur?Those chances are close to nonexistent.Systematic barriers of entry have kept Black entrepreneurs out of the conversation for decades. And while everyone knew of the problem, very few were actively making an effort to help solve it pre-2020.Well, today’s guest, Jill Johnson, has been tirelessly working towards breaking down their barriers for decades. Jill is the co-founder and CEO of the Institute for Entrepreneurship Leadership. When she started this business in 2002 with her father, her goal was simple - to help the economic development of minorities through entrepreneurship.Jill’s parents ran a newspaper publishing business which meant she had several opportunities growing up to interact with small entrepreneurs and see exactly why they struggled to make payroll.Then, when she got her first job at Goldman Sachs, she was able to come in close contact with people who created tremendous wealth.That’s when she realized that they were not people who looked like her or anyone in her community.So, she started her business because she saw that certain groups of people have to face barriers that just shouldn’t exist. She understood that there was infrastructure needed not only to help these groups financially but also to offer them hands-on support so they could succeed as entrepreneurs.In today’s episode, Jill discusses the various ways she helps Black and minority entrepreneurs, what she feels the biggest barrier to entry really is for POC business owners, and the concept of wealth in the Black community.Here’s a peek at what else you can expect: How everyone can help minority businesses The difference between a business owner and an entrepreneur Why not everyone should start a business (and how it’s totally okay and fulfilling to be an employee!) How she acknowledges her own privilege and uses it to help other entrepreneurs The problem with angel investors and diversity And more!We could’ve spoken to Jill for hours. Our conversation with her was deep, rich, and entertaining. We’re thankful people like Jill exist and we want more of our And She Spoke community to help out!

What did her parents do with her growing up?  What does Jill pay attention to when she is spending time in nature? And what can people at home sense? What are some of Jill’s favorite books related to the outdoors and nature?  How to leave the distractions of modern life behind when people are in nature?  How can people learn to appreciate nature more?  How did Jill get into yoga and meditation?  How can people bring the practice of yoga into their life, even if they don’t have time to roll out their yoga mat? How unimportant we all are, but also how beautiful and grandiose we all are... When did Jill start traveling as a solo traveler? How Half Dome in Yosemite National Park changed Jill’s life? Where did Jill do her yoga teacher training in Thailand?  The island was Koh Phangan of Koh Pha-Ngan and the retreat center was Samma Karuna What are Jill’s travel plans for the summer?  Resources from Jill Johnson:  You Are Here by Thich Nhat Hanh  Wherever You Go There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben  Free Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s work at MIT, Matt has taken Matt’s episode with Joe K the Co-founder of Hurley and Billabong Follow Jill on Instagram @jilllovescows Listen to the full episode on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Soundcloud, Spotify, or Youtube.
