Black Entrepreneur Finds Success Selling Cars Online - His Web Site, Carmarshal.com, Now Features More Than 130,000 New Vehicles!

-- Online marketplace for new and used cars, trucks and SUVs offers proprietary tool that helps you find a car, and negotiate the price --

Dallas, TX (BlackNews.com) -- Carmarshal.com is offering a new convenient service that takes the hassle out of buying a car, using a new proprietary software that helps buyers find a car at a lower than advertised price.

The service is setting out to help car buyers save time and money by offering potential buyers access to more than 100,000 new and used cars, trucks and SUVs at dealerships around the country. Competing directly against cars.com, autotrader.com and truecar.com, the Dallas-based, black-owned third party advertiser of new and used cars says is offering buyers a solid alternative.

“Look, we know people looking for a car have plenty of choices,“ Tracey Watts, the company’s African-American founder and CEO, said. “Our purpose is to get the customer a car at a lower than advertised price.”

Customers can search for a car 24/7 by going to carmarshal.com. Car buyers enter their zip code, the make and model of a new and/or used car, then immediately get a list of available cars and their prices in their zip code and within 200 miles. When buyers click on the “negotiate” button, they set up an account with an email and password, then choose two manufacturers. That’s when the carmarshal.com team begins negotiating a price and receiving bids for those cars. The car buyer remains anonymous, and not until the buyer is ready to make a purchase does he or she receive a certificate from that dealer locking in that price. For $39.97, customers can get access to carmarshal.com’s more aggressive negotiating program. If buyers are not satisfied with the choices, carmarshal.com will refund the fee.

“We know how much people hate to buy a car,” Watts said. “We’re doing the heavy lifting so all a person has to do is sign the paperwork and pick up their car.”

Watts said he got the idea for carmarshal.com several years ago. He was shopping for a car and found himself with two dealers bidding to get his business. He ended up with a less expensive price, then realized this was an opportunity to help car buyers get the best deal possible. The owner-financed company also is working on getting customers the opportunity to purchase the Katanka – an electric SUV - in the U.S. The car is currently manufactured by Dr. Kwadwo Safo, Ghana’s only auto manufacturer.

Small Business Optimism Regains Momentum in July

SACRAMENTO, Calif., August 8, 2017 – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) monthly Index of Small Business Optimism, released today, rose 1.6 percent in July to 105.2, a strong performance led by significant gains in hiring activity.

“Strong consumer demand is boosting small business optimism at the federal level,” said NFIB California State Executive Director Tom Scott. “Small business owners are feeling better about the economy because their customers are feeling better about the economy. This is a good trend at the national level that we hope translates to the state level here in California.”

Scott added, “Our strengthening Small Business Optimism Index comes on the heels of troubling data for California released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Their recent state-by-state report shows GDP growth in California flatlining at .1% compared to 3.9% in Texas. Small businesses in California cannot rely on national optimism alone to survive in this difficult state.”

Among the 10 components that make up the Index, seven improved, two declined, and one remained unchanged. The biggest gains were: job openings (+5); job creation plans (+4); and sales expectations (+5).

“Sixty percent of small business owners reported hiring or trying to hire in July,” said NFIB Chief Economist Bill Dunkelberg. “Within that group, 87 percent said they had a tough time finding qualified workers. The labor market is getting very tight, and the problem is most severe in the construction and manufacturing sectors.”

Business owners cite “lack of specific skills” as the main reason they can’t find qualified workers, according to new NFIB research included in the July report. Other common reasons include: work history; social skills; wage expectations; and attitude.

Nineteen percent of small business owners listed lack of qualified workers as their number-one problem, second only to taxes.

While most of the components were strong in July, capital expenditures remained average. Capital expenditure plans dropped 2 points. Fifty-seven percent of owners made capital outlays, which was unchanged from the previous month.

“Small business owners are waiting to see what happens on tax reform before they make big capital improvements or acquisitions,” commented Scott.

Meet the First Black Woman Ever to Hold — Not One — But Two Patents For a Natural Hair Accessory Product

Nationwide — The concept for PuffCuff was born out of necessity when Ceata Lash, the Founder and Inventor of PuffCuff, decided to stop chemically straightening (a.k.a. “relaxing”) her hair and go natural. While trying different hair styles with her new natural hair, she discovered it was impossible to find accessories to accommodate the thickness and texture of her hair. They simply did not exist!

Ceata became determined to find a solution. Her research revealed there were men, women and children with similar hair types all experiencing the same styling woes. It became clear there was a need for an easy-to- use styling tool that would help achieve quick trendy looks without causing pain or damaging hair.

After much research and design, PuffCuff LLC was launched in 2013 and in November 2016, Ceata became the first African American woman to be granted two patents for a natural hair accessory. PuffCuff is an easy-to- use simple hair clip that won’t break, snag or rip hair out and creates a variety of trendy hairstyles for natural hair; including styles that can incorporate locs, twists and braids.

It’s unique newly patented circular design locks into the texture or curl of the hair with its gentle teeth, never pulling or putting stress on the hair like most other hair accessories. With four sizes to choose from, this unisex tool meets the needs of a multicultural society who desire healthier styling options.

Since launching, the PuffCuff has had tremendous success via word of mouth from their many satisfied customers and have developed a cult following in the U.S. and abroad.
