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.
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!
Who said Black people can’t trace their roots? Dr. Wayne Davidson dispelled that myth with a remarkable journey that took him through Europe, Africa and the shores of Virginia. Using DNA testing, genealogical resources and painstaking research Davidson details the journey of his last name and how it became one of the cornerstones of America, one generation at a time.
Come along on this journey and use this book as a guide to explore the inner passages of your own family tree. Davidson’s new book, When Clans Collide, can certainly serve as a template for your own family historical research no matter what your ethnicity happens to be. This is the program for anyone curious about your historical past.
On this day June 19, 1865, emancipation was finally granted to the remaining slaves in the rebellious state of Texas. Two and a half years after Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves in the confederate states, the hold out White plantation owners grudgingly and reluctantly gave in to the pressures of the US government, but held onto the racial hatred embedded in their hearts.
Fast forward to 2006, a short eight years ago, when Black financial tycoon, Mellody Hobson, was mistaken for kitchen help while in New York City on a campaign fundraising trip for Harold Ford. The manager who made that awful blunder needed to clean out the cobwebs and realize that Black people have significantly advanced since the rough-shod days of our Civil War past.
Mellody recently created a TED Talk about her experience, urging her audience to move from being color blind to becoming color brave. We’ll talk about this lingering issue with veteran consultant and former Chair of the National Black MBA Association Bill Wells, Jr.
It’s an American issue that simply won’t go away.
The days of having ONE job that lasts a lifetime are gone, only to be replaced with new opportunities to reinvent yourself in relevant and compelling new ways. If you are fortunate to keep your job for 40 years or more, God Bless You! Most in this new economy will make several career moves before transitioning to retirement.
What does reinvention mean? How can you reinvent yourself without making bad choices that will cost you in the long run? And how can you reinvent yourself so that others will notice your value and promote/pay/hire you accordingly?
We’ll talk with job coach LaVerne Freeman who knows first hand the value of personal reinvention. LaVerne has spent a lifetime helping others find new career opportunities...as a small business owner, corporate recruiter and career coach. She’ll highlight her own career path while sharing insights on how you can leverage your skill sets for greater upward mobility.
Put on your thinking cap and let’s reinvent for career success!
