“Diary of a Ghanaian Diaspora Entrepreneur: Progress Revolving Around African Business Innovations “ is the title of the upcoming new book by Ghanaian American author & entrepreneur, Tony Kwame Ansah, Jr. This is a short and real-life diary about an author’s and entrepreneur’s past and present experiences with his business endeavors as a first-generation American of Ghanaian descent.
It begins with a backstory that connects Tony’s intimate upbringing within the African immigrant population. The diary then delves into business ideas leading to some market research on different promotional options for companies looking to reach African immigrant consumers. This research leads to Tony discovering online publication outlets in the USA and elsewhere that are open to external and/or independent writers, bloggers and authors to submit content for mass consumption.
As a result, Tony found many innovative products and services made or created by Africans home and abroad and wrote about them throughout 2019. There were specific African innovators Tony also acknowledged and wrote highly about for 2019.
In Diary of a Ghanaian Diaspora Entrepreneur, Tony Kwame Ansah, Jr. shares in detail his personal story throughout this journey of social entrepreneurship.
Although Tony does not quite know what the future holds for him and his business endeavors, but somehow and someway it’ll revolve around social impact and financial independence for him and others, especially those of African descent.
