In my article last month (online at bit.ly/2tqHK9d), you were introduced to the opportunities that have grown in the area of LGBT business enterprise (LGBTBE) certification for supplier diversity contracting. You also met some of the players like the NGLCC, CPUC, and the SBDC that are working both nationally, statewide, and locally to help LGBT business owners decide, 1) if they want to become certified; 2) how to get certified, and 3) how to be successful ongoing.
The process of becoming certified can be a confusing one especially for the sole proprietor, or smaller business owner. However, the rewards can provide new avenues of revenue producing opportunities for business growth.
