Greetings Family and Friends,
I hope this message reaches you well and in the best of health.
Also, I hope you are feeling great and remaining safe despite temptations to be around family and friends during the holiday season.
Unfortunately, the upcoming Christmas holiday will be very different from previous years due to the ongoing crisis; however, we must remember this too shall pass, and we'll embrace our new normal with excitement.
This month I'd like to highlight the NGCC's 2020 achievements:
- 10 Percent of our members utilized the services of our major sponsor, Wintrust Bank, by opening a new personal and/or business account.
- Five percent of our members started new businesses! This is a huge undertaking considering the volatility of the economy, but the following people made the bold move: Dr. Ayotunde Fajemobi, CEO of Mediomi, LLC; Hussain Banire, CEO of BAFHAD CLEANING SERVICES; and Halima Yombe, CEO of Dubu Enterprises, LLC.
We’re sending another email on Wednesday morning that contains important information for employment, funding, and other opportunities. Please be sure to open it.
Unfortunately, there are email filters that may mistaken our message for spam. To avoid this, please check out the tutorials on how to whitelist our email address so that you'll receive all of them in the primary inbox.

In closing, I previously communicated about the creation of a Business Resource page on our website. This web page is created in response to the challenges we’re facing during the pandemic. It contains the following: the ability to register your business, the ability to get an EIN for your business, funding opportunities for your business, and access to government agencies.
As we celebrate the holidays, I want us to be more thankful than ever for the gift of life. The NGCC is grateful for all you’ve done and contributed this year. We appreciate the support and commitment to our mission — especially during these challenging times.
My wish this holiday season is that we all receive peace and blessings.
