Win the Powerball and Start a Business!

...It’s vastly known that people who win huge lotteries are likely to lose all of their winnings and go broke again. It is clearly not because they didn’t have enough. It’s because their minds weren’t transformed to be able to handle the wealth. If you were to give them the money, the outrageous ideas they described on social media would probably come to fruition. 

My point in writing this is to incite people to dream again. If you found your imagination wandering…

Use Your Gifts and Talents to Open Doors For Yourself

Many times we wait for someone else to open a door for us instead of kicking the door in ourselves. We wait for a job opportunity, a college acceptance, a business partner or client... what we would call the "right opportunity" to come our way before moving. What we're really doing is waiting for is validation.…

Fresh Air to Chicago's Social Scene @PoshLifeEvents is filling the void in the lack of diversity in Chicago’s social scene! Read More!

This month’s Small Business Saturday post is a unique one. Typically I highlight a solo entrepreneur to find out their process, why they are in business and what makes them tick.

Reality TV – The Bane of Black America

Ever since America was forced to suffer through three seasons of Flavor of Love and watching Ty Ruff from the Real World: DC showed his colors, it seems like “unscripted” television has had it out for Black folks. The only “real” depictions we get of ourselves are loud, foul mouthed, feisty,…

The Sisterhood - True Unity or Fiesty Women in Sunday Go-To-Meeting Clothes?

After 2012 proving itself to be the year of ratchet reality TV, 2013 kicked off strong with a new reality show on TLC documenting the lives of four pastors’ wives in Atlanta. When the show was initially announced it was met with much criticism. After all, we’ve seen how cameras following people around documenting their “everyday lives” (or what the producers…

Raging Against the Machine

I have a few industry colleagues who feel similar sentiments when it comes to producing and promoting positive media. Having conversations with them lets me know I'm not alone in the struggle. It's like we're raging against the machine, storming the fort, taking the Alamo. I mean, I don't want to…
