Journey to Business Ownership (Know Your Why)

Becoming a business owner is going to be an exciting and rewarding journey. Before we take the leap and quit your day job to start your own company, though, there are a few things that you will need in order to be successful.

First and foremost, you will need to have a solid plan. What products or services will your business offer? What sets them apart from the competition? What skills and resources do you have that can help you meet the needs of your target audience?

Another key consideration is funding. You will likely need capital to cover costs like office space, equipment, marketing materials, and employee salaries. Finally, don’t underestimate the importance of networking in today’s competitive business landscape; having connections in the industry can make all the difference when it comes to launching and growing your company. If you are ready to take on this exciting challenge, then we go for it – TOGETHER!

Congratulations on your new venture! Becoming a business owner is an exciting and challenging step. There are many resources available to help you get started, and I’d be happy to connect with you to share our experiences by going here.

How prominent company ignores their HR Dept

It’s been all over the news about the abrupt departure of Gabrielle Union from AGT or also know as America’s Got Talent after serving on the show for only one season. Based on the information being communicated by the press so far, the departure may have been due to alleged mistreatment of her and other employees on the basis of race and gender. From what has been reported so far, there has been no formal charges filed but the network’s reputation of treating people unfairly is not new.

From an #HR standpoint, the network is not using or listening to their human resources department or they would not have been in this position in the first place.

As as business owner/entrepreneur, you want to avoid these type of compliance issues because they can cost your business their amicable reputation. If, as a business owner, you struggle to maintain compliance with these and other employment laws, reach out to me here so we can connect.

There’s so much damage the network could have avoided, had they listened to their HR Department.

Disappointed that “The Banker” movie may not be released


This is an important story that MUST be told & seen. The Banker captures the story of two melanated men using the cultural biases and racially discriminatory environment of the 1950s to establish themselves in the banking industry. They used their access to banking to help others obtain home and business loans.

It’s a powerful story of using disadvantages to your advantage, which I find profound. In your career and life, you can learn and take actions to use biases, challenges and disadvantages to change history.

Bet on Yourself, Professionally

Don’t be fearful of new opportunities that knock you out of your “comfort zone”. In this market climate where technology driven changes ultimately affect almost every industry directly or indirectly, you must step out on faith and BET ON YOURSELF!

Long gone are the days where people remain employed to the same company for 20, 30 or even 40 years….so believing in yourself, knowledge, skills and abilities may end up leading to unexpected opportunities for growth and working independently.

Be bold enough to step out on your own before it becomes a necessity versus a choice. You may end up venturing into entrepreneurship, sales or consulting based on what is going on in your industry.

To learn how to position yourself for professional growth and communicate your value in a professionally independent environment, go here.
