"The term empowerment refers to measures designed to increase the degree of autonomy and self-determination in people and in communities in order to enable them to represent their interests in a responsible and self-determined way, acting on their own authority. Empowerment as action refers both to the process of self-empowerment and to professional support of people,which enables them to overcome their sense of powerlessness and lack of influence, and to recognize and eventually to use their resources and chances.
The term empowerment originates from American community psychology (1981).
In social work, empowerment forms a practical approach of resource-oriented intervention. In the field of citizenship education and democratic education, empowerment is seen as a tool to increase the responsibility of the citizen. Empowerment is a key concept in the discourse on promoting civic engagement. Empowerment as a concept, which is characterized by a move away from a deficit-oriented towards a more strength-oriented perception, can increasingly be found in management concepts, as well as in the areas of continuing education and self-help.

Hello People, NOT FINISHED
My name is David. I am one of the founders of B2B Empowerment. The reason for this is that I am a small business owner who has found out recently that if you are not of the right ethnicity you may not be let in. I will elaborate on that statement later. For now let us get to the business at hand.
Have you ever walked into a business or visited a website that you really want to support, but the prices at the store next door or the other websites prices are at least 30% lower for the exact same item. Or, you are an entrepreneur who sales on eBay, Amazon, your own website, or you may have a brick and mortar location.
Okay now, you are at one of these outlets attempting to push your products, however, you are unable to compete with the low prices of the other sellers or the store across the street that is selling the exact same products that you have for sale.
Why is that? How can they afford to sell so low? Why can’t we compete? A better question is: How can we compete? Let me answer these four basic questions.
1. Why is that? – Because they buy in high volume.
2. How can they affordto sell so low? – Because they buy in high volume they pay less for their inventory.
3. Why can’t we compete? – We as individual small businesses and start-ups don’t buy in a large enough volume to get the deep discounted prices.
4. How can we compete? – The answer to that question is here at B2B Empowerment.
