Ever wonder what’s it’s really like to be an entrepreneur, or even a social entrepreneur? It’s one thing to dream about it. It’s something very different to “live it outloud” every day as a full time profession.
Carole Copeland Thomas shares secrets, successes, obstacles, and little known realities about the day to day life she has led for the past 25 years as a self employed entrepreneur. This up close and personal encounter will be especially useful for those thinking about entrepreneur but are afraid to take the leap.
It should also be helpful for those already self employed and looking for some inspiration and insight toward the next level of your business journey.
It may look glamorous, but becoming your own boss is hard work, offers no guarantees, and requires much stamina and determination. You’re constantly reinventing yourself and always looking for new opportunities to identify new clients and customers in the pipeline.
As a speaker, trainer, global thought leader, author, and community builder, Carole has worked in nearly every state in the US, and has taken her work to the UK, Australia, Canada, South Africa, Kenya, and El Salvador. Listen to today’s show and see if the world of entrepreneurship is right for you.

On today's show, put your feet up, relax, listen to the music and celebrate the holidays with Carole. We'll look at the dramatic events of the Lame Duck Congress, where remarkable bills were passed despite the naysayers. And we'll reflect on the beauty of Christmas and what it means around the world to millions of Christians who honor the birth of Jesus Christ. Then we'll look at the week long celebration of Kwanzaa, a secular celebration with African roots, that has caught on in many parts of the world. Let's celebrate the end of 2010 in triumph!!!
For some, it's Flag Day, a day to remember the rich history of the American flag.
For others, it's just another work day.
For me, its a day like no other in my entire life. It's the day my only son was killed in a single occupant car accident on June 14, 1997.
This is Flag Day -- marking the date in 1777 when John Adams proposed the stars and stripes as the official flag of the United States. Making flags, banners, and pennants is a nearly $5 billion annual business in the U.S.
Today we'll listen to the Census Bureau's profile on the American Flag. Then we'll turn our spotlight on three remarkable "slice of life" stories from StoryCorp, the national organization archiving real stories about real people around the United States. One story details the transference of anger, pain and suffering into good when a father is murdered. Another story describes the personal partnership of a couple in the classroom. The third story is an unusual love story that transcends the stereotypes.
And then I will share some special stories of my late son, his twin sister and his older sister, and how the bonds of family love and connection even transcend death.
This show is dedicated to the memory of my late son, Mickarl D. Thomas, Jr.

My guest will be Carole Copeland Thomas author of newly published "Best Practices: 21 Ways To Bring Multiculturalism To Your Job Your Home And Your Community." Ms Thomas will also share insights prior to her annual Multicultural Conference on Oct. 25 http://www.mssconnect.com/oct-25th-conference.html.
Veteran career strategist LaVerne Freeman and a regular guest on our show discusses the new training workshops created by Operation A.B.L.E. (www.operationable.net) that will debut in October. Reinventing Yourself, Staying Relevant and Strategic Networking are three of the power-packed sessions designed for older workers in job transition or getting back into the workplace. Modestly priced, these sessions will help Greater Boston area residents to step up their game, become more competitive while advancing their career options in industries across the region.
I am honored to be the trainer for this exciting upcoming sessions and we’ll describe them in detail on today’s show. Spread the word to your friends and colleagues who need a job makeover and aren’t afraid to become transformed!
AND….we’ll pay tribute to the 13th Anniversary of September 11th. Gone but NOT Forgotten.
The execution style killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18 year old walking in the middle of the street in Ferguson, Missouri, has stirred the moral fibers of an American society reeked in ethnic tension, racial discrimination and police misconduct.
On today’s show we’ll examine what happened in Ferguson and explore what’s wrong in America when Black men outnumber all over ethnic groups in violence and wrongful death in this country.
I am a veteran convention attendee and have attended, spoken at or participated in countless conventions and conferences since my early 20s. Now 40 years later, they still hold great fascination and value for me. This summer alone I have attended 4 conventions, with #5 coming up next week.
On today’s show I’ll share an 11 step strategy on making conventions, conferences and trade shows work for you. You’ll learn how to NOT get overwhelmed, how to manage your expectations and how to use each experience to gain new clients, new projects, new friends or close that promising business deal.
Get out your pen and paper and let’s get to work on maximizing your next convention experience.
Most of the cameras have gone home replaced by horrific stories of ISIS beheadings, ebola outbreaks and back to school activities filling the headlines. But there is still so much we do not know about the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown six times, his motives and his predispositions that caused him to react in such a violent manner.
The cameras might be gone, but the US Federal Justice Department hasn’t. Yesterday they announced that they are launching a full scale investigation of the entire Ferguson Police Department that will probe into current and past police activities in this suburban St. Louis city of 21,000. Their findings will be followed by all of us who care about social justice and equal rights in America.
The larger question remains, “Is There A Ferguson Near You?” Why, since the beginning of our country over 230 years ago are racial tension. violence and distrust such heavy clogs in the wheels of progress and cultural collaboration? And most importantly what is needed to push us past the angry and evil linchpins that keep popping up in Ferguson, Fresno and the Framinghams of our country?
Joining us to discuss these weighty issues are Monalisa Smith, President, CEO and Founder of Mothers for Justice and Equality and Community Activist and Blogger, Candelaria Silva-Collins.
Last week marked the 15th Reunion the Gaines Family has hosted since 1986. The brainchild of my cousins, Theresa Johnson and Lula McKeever, the family roots are deeply intertwined in slavery, suffering and salvation. William and Louisa Gaines were the original slave couple, allowed to stay together as they raised their 14 children in Georgia starting in the late 1700s.
Today’s show will discuss the many ways that your family reunion can serve as the principal method to archive your family history. We’ll also use the Gaines model of knowledge transfer, where one family member passes the family leadership from one generation to the next.
Big or small... family reunions, gatherings and celebrations are excellent ways to provide a long lasting thread of family stability to your immediate and expanded family unit.
If you could care less about the World Cup, you should listen to today’s show. I hope to bend your ear long enough to help you understand why this game has captured the hearts and souls of people around the world...and is leaving room for Americans to join the celebration.
I have embraced the game because it is such a strong representation of the multicultural values I so deeply desire for all of us. It is not a perfect sport...in fact there aren’t any perfect sports in the world. But there’s something about Futbol...or Soccer as we call it here in the US...that expands your thinking about team dynamics and national pride.
Bring your contrarian thoughts and anti-World Cup views to this show and let the debate begin!
