The Place For All Things Spanglish
The Spanglish Business Show features entrepreneurs and speakers, Angel Pomales and Dan Vega, who are on a mission to empower Latino entrepreneurs and small business owners. Each show captures a real business interview with top entrepreneurs, celebrities, and other human interest stories. It combines entrepreneurship at its finest and has a perfect blend of business, humor, and Latino culture.
The two hosts bring their own unique flavor, especially since Dan Vega being a successful Hispanic entrepreneur struggles to speak Spanish and Angel Pomales is still trying to master English, which is his second language. Both hosts agree that many minorities still think labor and hard work, but have stopped dreaming big. They also may not feel that they have an equal opportunity.
It’s time to put all of that behind us and show viewers that success cannot only be attained, but can be achieved by embracing your roots and having fun.

THE LOW DOWN OF LATINO BUSINESS
Hispanic-owned businesses play an increasingly important role in our economy, as employment grew at these firms grew 22.1 percent to 2.3 million jobs between 2007 and 2012 and revenues grew 35.1 percent to $473.6 billion during this same period. Hispanics-owned businesses ranked second in employment and sales receipts among minority groups, with Asians taking the lead in both categories that year. Despite the impressive expansion, Hispanic businesses remain disproportionately small in revenue and jobs. Hispanic-owned businesses account for 12 percent of all firms, but just a tiny 1.4 percent ($473.6 million) of total U.S. firms' sales and receipts ($33.5 trillion) in 2012. In addition, average gross receipts for Hispanic firms declined 7.7 percent from 2007 to 2012, while Asian American businesses, for example, saw revenues rise 12 percent.
The low sales and receipt figures for Hispanic firms can be attributed, at least in part, to the types of industries in which many operate. Most firms are in the other services sector, which include businesses engaged in activities such as equipment and machinery repairing, dry-cleaning and laundry services, personal care services, death care services, pet care services, photofinishing services, temporary parking services, and dating services. In 2012, 16.7 percent (553,065 firms) of Hispanic-owned businesses operated in the other services sector with average revenues of $36,615 per firm, compared to $143,271 across all industries. Administrative and support and waste management and remediation services was the next leading industry with a 16 percent share of Hispanic-owned firms and average receipts of $50,312. Health care and social assistance, another sector with modest average receipts ($83,162) also accounted for a significant portion (10.5 percent) of Hispanic-owned businesses. -
