Black Americans have struggled to make a way out of no way for centuries. Faced with rampant racism and discrimination, industrious Black Americans do for self, launching their own businesses. The number of businesses owned by Black American women grew 322% since 1997, making black females the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States. Women now own 30% of all businesses in the U.S., accounting for some 9.4 million firms. And Black American women control 14% of these companies, or an estimated 1.3 million businesses. The growth in women-owned firms may be due to the lack of fair pay, fair promotion, and family-friendly policies found in corporate America. Women of color are impacted more significantly by all of the negative factors that women face.
The highest concentrations of black woman-owned businesses are in Georgia, Maryland, and Illinois, but Black American women are launching companies in growing numbers across the country. Cassandra Bell-Gash launched a Medicaid waiver care in North Carolina in 2003 and grew the business into a million-dollar venture only to get sabotaged by bureaucratic mumbo-gumbo that delayed payments and interfered with client services forcing her to close in 2008. No untoward findings were made, but the interference caused Ms. Bell-Gash to close her business and regroup. Bell-Gash is unusual among entrepreneurs of any race or gender in that she employed more than just herself. Black American Women have an incredibly steep incline trying to do two things: one is just to be successful, and the other is to create wealth. Cassandra Bell-Gash relaunched her company, Life Provisions,Inc. (LPI) this Spring 2015 saying she was "delayed, but not detered".

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Western music is not to be confused with Country music. Western music is a form of American folk music composed by and about the people who settled and worked throughout the Western United States and Western Canada. The Mexican folk music of the American Southwest also influenced the development of this genre. With the Traditional Western being a genre of various arts, such as comics, fiction, film, games, radio, television and music, getting "westerns" published and in the hands of fans can also be confusing and a challenge to understand. Tonight we learn about today's contemporary western music and about how today's publishing experts get the western genre to market.

In the first hour, the guys are joined by J.T. Thomas of Rank Top-5 Sports Talk Network to discuss the current state of the Chicago Bears and how new coach John Fox can revitalize the club. Is a 3-13 record really all fans should expect in 2015, and what is there to like about Jay Cutler? Our "man-on-the-ground" J.T. offers his analysis.
Then, the boys welcome in Greg Peterson of WNSR Sports Radio 560AM / 95.9FM to offer his assessment on the 2015 Tennessee Titans, the power-duo QB tandem of Marcus Mariota & Zach Mettenberger, and whether the early "good" reviews will last all season.
Also in the mix: *Life-coaching skills for you (& crew) demonstrated by 2 fall guys. *Are there really more than perhaps 15 good QBs in the league? *Speaking of bad, how did the Geno Smith situation go so horribly wrong? *With every team sitting at 0-0-0, let's predict how week 17 will end up.
You just know that Matt DiBiase will join in with his NHL/NBA chat segment, and the conversations are bound to go in just about any direction, so get in the conversation by calling in your questions/opinions to: 347-826-9964 tonight from 7-9 PM.
