    Keshia Robertson, Contemporary Romance Author with a Multicultural Twist

    in Writing

    Author Keshia Robertson hails from Toronto, Canada where she writes fresh sensual to erotic contemporary romance with a multicultural twist. When she isn't crafting stories of sexy heroes and witty heroines, she can be found on Twitter, @startswithakesh or on her website, startswithakesh.com, discussing her preferred writing techniques or the latest episode of a Korean drama.


    Excerpt for Just As Good - 4 days before Christmas: Evan Hermes traded in romance for pragmatism when he suggested marriage at their New Year's Eve party to his girlfriend, Kitt Preston. It was a “suggestion” which wasn’t well received by the love of his life. Though it’s taken him most of the year to figure out the perfect proposal, this time romance is front and center to obtain a yes!

    Kitt has been in love with Evan ever since he asked her out during their first year of college. Tall, handsome, and a family man, Evan is the kind of person that most women would be falling over themselves to marry…but not her. Kitt is only willing to say yes to a marriage proposal that is worthy of their love and years together.


    A second chance for Evan to propose felt about as miraculous as Santa Claus standing in the middle of his living room with an inheritance grand . . .

    [ENCORE] Reaching The Multicultural Consumer | Glenn Llopis & Tony Alessandra

    in Entrepreneur

    To succeed in today’s ever-changing business climate, it’s imperative that C-Suite leaders become keenly aware of their customers and the changing face of the consumer. As the United States grows more diverse, we must be equipped with the tools and skills to be constantly changing and evolving to keep up with the modern consumer.


    Our first guest, Glenn Llopis, is a noted entrepreneur, author and speaker, as well as the founder and CEO of the Center for Hispanic Leadership. Glenn stresses the importance of having an “immigrant perspective” on leadership and becoming keenly aware of the disconnect between the changing cultural demographics in the U.S. to better understand how they are reached and represented by brands. Leaders, he says, must be willing to adapt and develop new strategies for the evolving marketplace and rise of multicultural groups not only in the consumer role, but in the workforce as well.


    Our second guest, Tony Alessandra, is a prolific author, entrepreneur and speaker who specializes in sales, communication skills and behavioral styles. Tony is a strong advocate for constant education and self-improvement beyond the classroom walls. Education is essential for C-Suite leaders to maintain relevancy, understand their customers and truly be at the top of their game. Tony emphasizes the Platinum Rule: Treat others the way they want to be treated. This is key to truly connecting with both employees and customers and creating lasting relationships at all levels.


    With so many fantastic opportunities for continued education, C-Suite leaders can now reach customers and grow their businesses in powerful new ways. A willingness to adapt and evolve is essential. New tools for learning, coupled with a deep understanding of the changing consumer, will guide the C-Suite, and their companies, along the path to success.

    Diversity: A Failure

    in Politics

    The statements by many leading European heads of states--Angela Merkel, Nicholas Sarkozy, David Cameron, and others--has indicated that its not only common people, but even politicians in the establishment, who have to come to the conclusion that diversity and multiracialism has failed to work in the West. 


    Multiracial and multicultural societies have a long history of failing--Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, Rwanda, Sudan, etc.. However, despite this long history of constant failure, the elite class of the West still continues to ply the general public of diversity's benefits.


    In this segement of "America in Focus," we will examine diversity and multiracialism in more focus, with the candid and scholarly appraisal of it from a leading academic, among others, who has written and investigated the matter extensively. Dr. Tomislav Sunic has risked criticism and ostracism alike to have written several articles and books, where he takes aim at the credo and mantra of the Western elite class.
