    1. Create a new role called "BusinessAdmin".
    2. Configure the role to have specific permissions in that category (See category specific permissions at the bottom of the roles page).
    3. Assign that role to the users you want to have it.
    4. Profit!

    Users can have multiple roles, and every role can be configured per-category.
