About Gladys Brangman

Gladys is at her best when serving others and has set out to make the small business world more profitable by providing access to educational services and networking opportunities. Her most recent venture is Business Leaders of Colors (BLOC) a local network designed to support small business owners. She believes that if business owners of color(s) are going to thrive they needed to have access to funding, education. A gathering to celebrate Black History Month four years ago, transformed into a network that became a business created to serve the under represented members of the small business community. BLOC offers reduced cost business and financial training, marketing, and a web presence for businesses that do not have one.
