Harris teaches blacks how to profit
DALLAS — When CNBC’s hit show, “The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch” called Fran Harris and asked her to appear as a business coach to work with entrepreneurs “live” on the air, she jumped at the chance to talk about her favorite subject — making money.
Starting a business is easy, according to Harris, a business explosion expert. “Succeeding in business is a whole other animal,” said Harris.
Harris, a former ESPN announcer and WNBA Champion, was one of four millionaires featured in the April 2008 issue of Essence magazine but she’s actually been making entrepreneurial moves since age nine. “As a fourth grader I started a snow cone stand that netted $1,500, and after that, ‘it was on’,” laughed Harris.
“The Internet has opened up a whole new world for entrepreneurs regardless of their experience, age or background. There really are no limits. If you have the willingness to learn, I can show anyone how to make an extra $500 to $10,000+ a month online…or offline.”
Harris who speaks nationally and internationally on “making money online”, recently released a slate of courses targeting entrepreneurs who want to cash in on the Internet craze.
“I’m amazed at how much money we’re (African Americans) leaving on the table by NOT selling information products online. My Millionaire Business School students are now adding six figures to their bank accounts, 100% online,” said Harris.
“From college students selling e-books on how to get through freshman year, to new dads selling home study courses on ‘My First Year As A Dad’ to retirees writing and self-publishing their first books — it’s really gratifying to see us getting our share of the trillion dollar ecommerce pie.”
A member of the Houston Comets’ first WNBA Championship team in 1997, Harris is an author, international speaker, and business & marketing strategist who was recently featured in Essence , Black Enterprise and Success magazines; Oprah’s Radio Network, CNN, FOX Business Channel and CNBC’s “The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch.”
She’s the co-founder of the Black Millionaires Summit and creator of MillionaireBusinessSchool.com. Harris teaches FREE Business Teleclasses each Monday at 10:30 a.m. CST.
