    Black American Woman Entrepreneur- Cassandra Bell-Gash

    in Professional

     


    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".

    Melanie Dobson debuts Shadows of Ladendbrooke Manor

    in Lifestyle

    Melanie Dobson debuts Shadows of Ladendbrooke Manor.  Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor slips back and forth between


    the 1950s and a contemporary story where we meet Heather the Doyles daughter. She


    returns to her family’s cottage to sort through her parents belongings where she uncovers a string of shocking secrets that leave her wondering if anything her mother said about her childhood was true.


    “Mother daughter relationships can be complicated,” Dobson concedes. “


    I love when women of different generations are honest with one another about their weaknesses and offer each other


    grace just as Christ gave freely to each of us.”


    As Heather sorts through the belongings left behind in the cottage, trying to separate truth from deceit, she has


    an uncomfortable reunion with her first love. Together, they unravel a mystery that will change ever


    ything she


    thought she knew about herself and her family.


    Award winning author Dobson seamlessly weaves the past and present together, fluidly unraveling the


    decades old mystery to reveal how the Doyle and Croft families are entwined. Set in a charming world of


    thatched cottages and lush English gardens, this


    mystery highlights how God’s light cuts through the shadows of life bringing


    transformation and restoration and creating


    beauty from the ashes of our lives

    Hr1   Gang leader's deadly standoff with NYPD not serious enough to interfere w/ Mayor Bill de Blasio's gym routine.


    Tell me again why people listen to celebrities as if they're experts on everything? Man on the street Mark Dice proves the point.


    English language immersion work to assimilate immigrant children to the American culture. Why did we stop?

    Nate Imhoff talks sports! Giving kids participation trophies rewires their brains to stop trying hard. Competition is in our DNA. It's what makes us #human.

    NBC cuts off Janelle Monae's #BlackLivesMatter speech. Not everything is racism. TV commercials = hard breaks.

    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
