    Stand Out and Shine! Transform Your Personal Style to Attract New Business

    in Marketing

    You get once chance to make a first impression. This rings true in any and all aspects of life. Imagind going to a networking event in your sweats and a t-shirt. Chances are, you aren't going to make very many connections. 

    While it sounds shallow that people judge you from the moment they see you based on how you look, it's just a fact of life. 

    And in business, it can mean the difference between sealing the deal and going broke.

    New Business Paradigms — April 9, 2015

    in Business

    April's show focuses on the situation in California—the country's most prosperous state—which is currently in the grips of an epic drought. The struggle over water rights in California is almost as old as the state itself but this unprecedented drought is creating new pressures that will ultimately define the future of California. This scenario is a case study for the new era of climate change-related crises, adaptations, and ultimately our survival.


    In our business analysis segment, we discuss Shell's risky gamble to buy BG Group. Hear Rinaldo's take on this deal—he calls it "dinosaurs mating." He also talks about the outlook for the 3D Printing sector why the pioneers in emerging industries are not always the biggest winners.


    Our Economic Doomsday Clock ticks one minute closer to midnight, arriving at 11:51PM. A likely Greek Exit from the euro combined with bank exposure to the chaos, especially in Europe, makes international destabilization more likely than last month.

    Creating The New Black Wall Street: What Can Make It Work?

    in Women

    Entrepreneurship is the engine that drives the American economy. For those that know the story of the old Black Wallstreet in the 1920s, a dollar circulated in the African American community 100 times before it left, making everybody in the community prosperous, and these were people just two generations out of slavery! Our youth have ideas, creativity, and energy. How do we help them manifest that energy into the creation of a thriving business community, with banks, theaters, grocery stores, laundromats, schools, houses of worship, parks, restaurants, and hospitals, all of which African Americans owned and operated in the community known as black Wallstreet? Blacks spend $1.9 trillion per year, comparable to the 9th largest nation in the world. Do we already have the capital we need to finance a thriving community? Columnist Carl West and activist Mama Dee Love discuss, do we need a hand from others to create successful businesse or can we really do it ourselves?
