00:37 Welcome, welcome. Welcome to another wonderful episode of the Diaspora chiefs podcast. Today just going to be about some personal reflection, well actually it started my own podcast if you, a few months ago after the diaspora entrepreneurs growth summit, 2019 earlier this year, the response on the participation was so great. It was so amazing and your attendance was fantastic. So I realized that you see the people that I'm trying to serve, they are not really cared for or properly looked after, which is the African and Caribbean small businesses. Most of the stories are not being told in the right way. Their successes are not being covered the right way. We have amazing, amazing entrepreneurs from the African and Caribbean community who needs, who needs their story to be, to, to inspire the next generation of African and Caribbean entrepreneurs. They're not being covered by the mainstream media.
01:36 That is why I said, you know what, let me like put my foot into these, into this sector and see if I can like shine more light on various aspect of the diaspora but is using digital tools to help their businesses to grow or to use that to help their businesses to be more visible. And there are lots of them out there, small businesses from the African and Caribbean community. Woo. Actually having tribe in businesses who are starting up great and amazing stuff all on the digital space. I saw these as my passion because I love talking about businesses. I love talking about business development, marketing, sales, finding your niche and those kinds of amazing stuff. For me, business is fun. So some weeks ago, my son

02:52 okay, let me not go there as if we are. I think we are kind of leeches. Whereas there's so many, many, they're like 95% of those who are actually doing amazing stuff in the UK, in Europe, in America and Canada. We're doing amazing stuff. We are educated people, we are learned, people. We are, we are fantastic people and whatever we've, we've set our mind to, we actually achieve them without any barriers, without any institutional roadblocks. You see, so do the web.
