As of 2012, it is estimated that there are more than 8.3 million women-owned businesses in the United States, generating nearly $1.3 trillion in revenue. Many large corporations now understand that it makes good business sense to spend dollars with women-owned vendor firms. Corporate management knows it is good for the public relations and for their local communities, but most importantly for the value they get from the dollars spent with women-owned companies.
Certification as a woman owned business can help women reach markets they could not reach on their own. Being certified as a Women Owned Business Enterprise matches women with the corporate entities they desire.
This week I am interviewing my business partner in an exciting initiative we offer to help WBEs prepare themselves for corporate business. Cheryl El-Alf, President of Diverse Supply Chain Partner is on a mission to help WBE (Women Business Enterprise) executives and their leadership teams to implement the strategies necessary to grow their business within the corporate supply chain.
Chery’s background is unique and diverse. Her knowledge of, and working experience in supplier diversity programs includes the Small Business Administration’s 8A program in addition to Corporate America’s W/MBE programs. She has mastered the skill of leveraging these programs to not only help the W/MBE businesses achieve their financial goals; but also the Corporate Supply Chain’s diverse spend goals. She refers to this as a “win-win” situation.
Join us today to learn about WBE certification and its advantages .The benefits of becoming certified and examples of the impact that using this strategy has had for other women in business.

How can we start on our own transformation to systems thinking? I ask someone who knows: Bob Browne, author of "Sys-Tao."
Bob Browne didn't just inherit the Great Plains Coca-Cola franchise, he had to pay for it at 1980 leveraged buy-out prices. When the traditional geographic expansion strategy collided with an explosion of product and packaging combinations, the strain was felt throughout the enterprise. Recognizing that the existing strategy could not meet the modern demands, Bob began to look for alternatives, finding the solution in a more "organic" philosophical tradition, characterized as Japanese Kaizen principles, but really originated by the American quality philosopher C. Edwards Deming. Browne completely transformed GPCC according to a Kaizen-Deming system that suited GPCC's particular circumstances. The transformation was a great and lasting success.
What has entertainment done to the black community?
Has it been a positive impact promoting freedom of expression or a negative impact promoting violence & drug use.
One thing we all can agree on is that entertainment affects us ALL. No matter the color or religion...
Movies.TV Shows. Music. It all has the ability to change our view of thinking and has the power to completely alter our perception on life.
Lets discuss this tonight @ 10 PM & call in @ (347) 996-5750 to join the conversation.

This program will explore portions of the Book of Enoch and how it relates to Genesis-Jude-Revelation.
Chapter 7 Book of Enoch 1. It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that daughters were born to them, elegant and beautiful. 2. And when the angels the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamoured of them, saying to each other, Come, let us select for ourselves wives from the progeny of men, and let us beget children. 3. Then their leader Samyaza said to them; I fear that you may perhaps be indisposed to the performance of this enterprise; 4. And that I alone shall suffer for so grievous a crime. 5. But they answered him and said; We all swear; ...7. Then they swore all together, and all bound themselves by mutual execrations. Their whole number was two hundred, who descended upon Ardis, which is the top of mount Armon... 10. Then they took wives, each choosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery, incantations, and the dividing of roots and trees. 11. And the women conceiving brought forth giants, 12. Whose stature was each three hundred cubits. These devoured all which the labor of men produced; until it became impossible to feed them; 13. When they turned themselves against men, in order to devour them; 14. And began to injure birds, beasts, reptiles, and fishes, to eat their flesh one after another, and to drink their blood. 15. Then the earth reproved the unrighteous.
Goodyear, AZ – As mothers and wives we have been taught to focus on our husbands and our children and the dynamics of our family, but when there is a divorce, all of that changes. Much of our life as we knew it is gone and there’s a tremendous void, but women can learn to thrive after divorce.
María Tomás-Keegan is the founder of SafeHarbor Coaching and a certified life transition coach who specializes in the divorce transition. She helps women navigate the challenges of life after divorce so they can learn to create the fulfilling life they deserve.
“I work with divorced women because I resonate with them,” says María. “I’ve been through two divorces myself and I know exactly how they feel. I can empathize with what they’re going through. I’ve walked in their shoes. I can help bring a new perspective that allows for the possibility to feel hopeful, inspired and confident and reveal the opportunity for a joyful next chapter in their lives.”
Life after divorce is filled with plenty of ups and downs, ebbs and flows, and there are often other life transitions that complicate the matter — there may be need for a job or career change or a relocation from the family home — and there is certainly grief and loss -- grief for the unrealized future they’d imagined and the loss of their life as they knew it.
“I want to help women rediscover who they are,” says María. “So often we let our values take a backseat and we compromise in the interest of keeping the peace. Exploring who we are, what we want and what’s most important to us are key elements to learning to thrive after divorce.”
