    WTF - w/Kevin A. Phillips - ReTREAT, Hell We Just Got Here!

    in Self Help

    THIS WEEK:  Retreat, Hell? We Just Got Here!


    As a US Marine, "retreat" is just an option available for the enemy, NOT something to 'do'. However, as a TBI THRIVER, the term 'retreat' is used in a much different aspect. While on occasion, we may need to withdraw from a situation, especially those of us with PTSD, it does not mean we are 'unstable' or even 'disabled'. It means our 'central processing unit' (aka brain) needs more time to process the (est) 60,000 bits of information we pick up each second. Kind of like working with a Pentium II processor on a computer today. Join Kevin and the Marvelous Maggie on WTF? to learn what it really means to "RE-TREAT".

    Tune in this week to add another perspective to your daily repertoire.  If there is something in particular you would like to hear Kevin discuss, join us on Fridays and share in the chat room with the "Marvelous Maggie" (Kevin's 24/7 Partner and Professional Care Assistant)

    Will Moss from HBCUConnect Joins Me

    in Education

    Will Moss is President & CEO of HBCU CONNECT, LLC and has been in this position since founding HBCUConnect.com in June of 1999.  HBCU CONNECT, LLC owns and operates the largest Historically Black College & University website in existence and reaches approximately 350,000 website visitors each month.


    Mr. Moss, a 1995 graduate of Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia, graduated as the top Computer Science scholar in his class and went on to work as a lead software engineer for AT&T Bell Labs from 1995 until starting HBCUConnect.com in 1999.  Mr. Moss is also considered an expert in internet topology, internet marketing, and online diversity recruitment strategies.


    In 2010, Moss launched a number of social networking websites for the African American community, including sites such as BlackHistory.com, AfricanAmericanCareers.com, BlackWomenConnect.com, and was recently a guest on the “Monique Show” on BET talking about a new project, BlackRomance.com, the largest free dating site for African American professionals.


    William often gives presentations to college students on entrepreneurship, career preparation, and the relevancy of technology to African Americans.  Moss’ experience in corporate America as an intern, employee, and consultant lead to the development of HBCU Connect as an answer to the lack of an existing platform for HBCU students and graduates to communicate, network and take advantage of related opportunities.
