IAM1750 – Business Plan Writer Helps Black Businesses Receive Funding

Podcast Interview with Cheree Warrick

Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”:

In episode IAM776 of the I AM CEO podcast, host Gresham Harkless interviews Cheree Warrick, the founder of The 10K Project, which is a community of black small-dollar investors who want to help fund black businesses.

Cheree has been a business plan writer for close to 10 years, helping companies raise millions of dollars. She noticed that her black clients, who had great ideas, struggled to receive funding because they didn't have a network of high-net-worth individuals. To solve this problem, Cheree started The 10K Project, which aims to build the largest community of black small-dollar investors.
In the interview, Cheree discusses her journey as an entrepreneur, the importance of financial management, and the challenges faced by black entrepreneurs in accessing funding. She also shares her CEO hacks, nuggets, and defines what being a CEO means to her.

Overall, the episode provides valuable insights into the struggles faced by black entrepreneurs and the solutions being developed to support them.

The numbers that we gave really were like the after effect to how people were effectively managing those leading factors within their businesses as well, and being able to say, okay, if I wanna do better, I need to tweak these things on the front end.

Hello, hello, hello. This is Gresh from the I AM CEO podcast and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you were listening this year, you know that we hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we're repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories or topics or as I like to call them, the business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, and business owners, and what I like to call the CB nation architects who are looking to level up their organizations.

This month we are focused on our greatest asset- talent management and hiring. Think from great resignation to the great renovation and if you disagree with me, maybe these episodes might be especially for you. Life and especially business has changed. It is has forced those that are within organizations to look differently at talent, and how it's being managed.

When we talk about change, think about it, we have to realize that business as usual is no longer here. That's evident in attracting and retaining clients, but also in setting up people within organizations to succeed. Think onboarding, think DEI- diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, how it is working from home and even going back into the office.

Things are different in this month. We are going to explore these topics by featuring CEO hacks and CEO nuggets, but also interviews that focus on these changes and how organizations can make sure they care for and attract the most valuable asset- their people. Sit back and enjoy this special episode of the I AM CEO podcast.

Hello, hello, hello. This is Gresh from the I AM CEO podcast and I have a very special guest on the show today. I have Cheree Warrick of the 10K Project. Cheree, it's awesome to have you on the show.

Cheree Warrick 02:13

Thank you so much, Gresham.

Gresham Harkless 02:15

No problem. Super excited to have you on, and before we jumped in, I wanted to read a little bit more about Cheree so you can hear about all the awesome things that she's doing.

For close to 10 years, Cheree helped companies raise millions of dollars as a business plan writer. The most successful fundraisers already had a network of high-net-worth individuals and could raise millions within a few weeks of Cheree completing their business plan. Her black clients, most of whom had great ideas but didn't have these relationships, would struggle to receive funding.
