Dr. Adelaide L. Sanford, Vice Chancellor Emerita of the New York State Board of Regents
Sanford studied at Brooklyn College, where she earned her B.Ed. degree in 1947; she received her M.Ed. degree from Wellesley College three years later. From 1950 to 1965, Sanford taught in New York's elementary schools, before being hired as an assistant principal. Sanford earned her Ph.D. degree from Fordham University in 1967, and later became principal at Crispus Attucks School in Brooklyn, earning an outstanding reputation for promoting excellence and achievement at an inner-city school.
In 1986, Sanford won unanimous election to the Board of Regents of the State University of New York. As chairperson of the Regents' Committee on Low Performing Schools, Sanford played an instrumental role in shaping new educational policies that sought to close the gap among schools in student performance. Though outspoken and known for her African-style dress and Ebonics commentary, Sanford never wavered in her concern for the welfare of New York's students, particularly those at low-performing schools. While serving as a regent, Sanford also taught at Baruch College and Fordham University.
Many honors and awards were bestowed upon Sanford for her work; she received the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's humanitarian award, and distinguished alumna awards from Wellesley College and Brooklyn College. Sanford played an instrumental role in creating the John Henrick Clark meetinghouse. Sanford also served on the board of the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, and as a national advisory board for multicultural education.

SHOW NOTES: In our HELP! SITUATION SPOTLIGHT™ series, we shine the light on challenges that community members have shared. This episode is, “"How Do I Protect Myself While Remaining Open To New People?"
ANSWER: Make a commitment to yourself that you will keep yourself safe from harm.
1) Why should you remain open to new people?
“We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore shrink until life is a mere living death.” - Eleanor Roosevelt (longest serving First Lady of the US)

SHOW NOTES: This episode is, “How Did You Open Your Own Law Firm At Age 26?"
I opened my law firm when I was 26 years old. My office was in a lower income part of town next to railroad tracks. My office rent was less than $300 a month. I had no financial help from anyone. It was one of the best decisions of my life (economically, emotionally, professionally, etc.)!
- I made a fantastic income and I was in control of my destiny!
Solo Practitioners annual income in Texas $97,142 (2009 data) ( https://www.texasbar.com/AM/Template.cfm?Section=Archives&Template=/CM/ContentDisplay.cfm&ContentID=11241)
- I am not alone.
“The number of recent law graduates going solo increased from 3.5 percent in 2008 to 5.5 percent in 2009, the biggest one year jump since 1982, the National Association for Law Placement (NALP) reports. That percentage increased to 5.7 percent of all private practice jobs for the class of 2010, the highest it’s been since 1997.”
"As of 2005, some 62 percent of attorneys in private practice work as solo or small-firm practitioners, according to the most recent data available from the American Bar Association. "
"Solo practice: ~271,000, or 35% of US lawyers (this takes the ABF estimate of the share of lawyers in solo practice and multiplies it by the total number of lawyers in law offices reported by the BLS) (id.)";
2) Was age an obstacle?
No. We a
ENVISION THIS: “Enhancing the natural flow of carbons to soil will result in increased microbial diversity, improved nutrient cycles, expanded water holding capacity, greater resilience, improved ecosystem health, and a more satisfying, profitable future for farmers and ranchers”…and, as a co-benefit, sequesters carbon from the atmosphere!
In Grass, Soil, Hope, A Journey through Carbon Country our guest, Courtney White explores the multiple ways CO2, when sequestered in soil, can become our ally instead of our enemy. Here’s just some of the food for thought offers us:
“Carbon is not ‘the bad guy’—carbon is part of our essence. Its story needs to be told and heard. It is our past, present, and future. It is our story. It is the story of grass. The story of green. The color of hope.”
“Every living thing above ground—whether it’s hairy vetch, a mighty ponderosa pine, an elusive coyote, an endangered bird, a busy beaver, or an equally busy human being—depends on the vast universe of life in the soil…and at the heart of this micro world is carbon, the glue that holds the web together.”
“The Greenhorns are the new alchemists. Carbon and glomalin are the new alchemy. Food is the new gold.”
“Art, harmony, beauty, aesthetics—as perceived by us—are all signs of health in nature and ourselves…The principles that made a practice restorative and regenerative were the same ones that made it beautiful.”
“We don’t need to wait for something new under the sun to come along to restore the land and ourselves to health. It’s here.”
Join Courtney and us in exploring these hopeful observations for which Michael Pollan wrote a foreword.
WE ARE TALKING ABOUT INVESTING IN THIS NEW HIGH-TECH ECONOMY – AND THE EFFECT OF MEDIA BIAS ON THE ECONOMY. THERE ARE WAYS TO GET AROUND THAT BIAS. ONE OF THEM IS THE ISM REPORT WHICH IS THE INSTITUTE OF SUPPLY MANAGEMENT. YOU CAN FIND IT AT I-S-M DOT-W-S. THAT’S ONE OF THE TIPS WE GOT FROM MICHAEL CARR. HE IS THE EDITOR OF PEAK PROFITS REPORT DOT-COM. HE THINKS THERE WILL BE AN INVESTOR PANIC SOON – WHICH HE CALLS THE SANFORD AND SON ECONOMY – THANKS TO HOW THE MEDIA READS ECONOMIC DATA – OR BETTER YET – NOT READING ENOUGH ECONOMIC DATA.
“Yeah I think that is how the media is shaping events. People are scared. Sanford and Son Market. I am coming Elizabeth. Economic news is shifting. There is a lot of great data. ISM new order index great info on page 4 or 5. Orders are now high and about to slow down. Panic will set in. Could see a good 10-20% drop in the market here.”
AGAIN THAT INFORMATION ON THE ISM REPORT IS FREE. JUST GO TO ISM DOT-W-S AND READ. WE WILL HAVE MORE WITH MICHAEL CARR COMING UP. THAT’S INFORMED NOT INFLAMED.
Carol Sanford is the author of The Responsible Entrepreneur: Four Game-Changing Archetypes for Founders, Leaders and Impact Investors.
From her website:
Carol has been leading major consulting change efforts in both Fortune 500 and new-economy businesses for more than 30 years. Her client list includes long-terms relationships with Colgate Europe and Africa and DuPont Canada, US, Asia and Europe.
She also works with new-economy companies like Intel, Agilent and leaders of change such as Seventh Generation. Central to Carol's philosophy and approach is a reimagined look at what makes and organiztion truly responsible. "Its important to find out what differentiates your business and cannot be copied by competitor because they cannot be you; and then thinking about how to do business so that communities, societies, and ecology as a whole are improved. These are not separate interwoven pursuits. It's completely doable, and a conversation worth having.
And we'll have that conversation about our one competitive advantage, that none of us can copy. That's who we are as individuals - all of our strengths and values and legacies and and dreams. As Oscar Wilde said Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.
Everyone else is a commodity. Being them means you compete in commodity-hell. With the whole being greater than the sum of its parts, I wonder why corporate policies insist we leave ourselves, our best selves, at home.
We’ll talk with Carol. We’ll hear how responsible entrepreneurs mastered these archetypes, connected with buyers, changed an industry and transformed lives.
SHOW NOTES: The HELP! SITUATION SPOTLIGHT™ series addresses challenges, obstacles and problems (real or perceived) that are preventing a person from surpassing their goals! In this series, we shine the light on challenges that community members have shared. This episode is, “Why Doesn’t My Experience Mean MORE Than Credentials (degree, license, etc.)?”
1) How does anyone know what your experience actually is (versus what you assert it to be)?
Do you want to go to a hospital and have the physician tell you that they have an immense amount of experience (but no actual medical degree or [...]
