    in News

    Tune into tonight as IABT Radio Show for Triathletes, hosted by International Association of Black Triathletes (IABT) interviews a legend in his own time, Max Fennell. Max Fennell is the first and only Professional Black Triathlete on the planet earth and has achieved a status that is sure not to be the only one in African American history, we hope. 


    Tonight Max chats with IABT Radio Show for Triathletes on his challenges, adversities, and solutions to the most common triathlete concerns. Max provides strategies and tips for triathletes of all races, ethncities, gender, socio economic status and age. IABT knows and believes part of the key to changing the face of triathlons for African Americans is the investment of our youth triathlon organizations and let's hear what Max thinks as well.

    The Myth of The "Strong Black Woman" Call in 347-215-8933

    in Women

    The recent events in Baltimore brought the issue of black women and their role as parents and as participants in black protests movements to the forefront. From the women who hit her son and was defined with a narrative by national, primarily white media to the black women who were standing on the frontines in protests in front of police for black male victims of violence but are noticeably absent around protests around black women who are victimized as well. This episode will explore the reason why black women are consistently presented in a very narrowly defined way and will open up a discussion on why they are expected to accept pain as a norm and regular part of their existence in contrast to other races of women. Call in with questions and comments. 347.215.8933

    Organization is both mental and physical

    in Business

    Organization isn’t just blocking out the clutter in your workspace but also blocking out the clutter in your mental state.  All too often we are quick to grab a tool, filing system or look for some quick fix. We don’t take enough thinking time to organize our thoughts and gain clarity around what drives us mentally so we can set up our environment to support that.


    Todays takeaways will be 5 steps of organizing any space.
