Back when I was in elementary school, we use to read the Weekly Reader. 1992 was an election cycle, so it focused on the two primary candidates, George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton. My teacher asked us if we could vote who would we vote for and why. Being poor black kids living in South Memphis, all of us chose Bill Clinton, and all of them said because that's who their parents like. I also chose Bill Clinton, but I took it a step further. I explained how the Bush tax plan only benefited people...

Recently here in the Memphis area, Daymond John's Launch Academy came here to help entrepreneurs, small business owners, and even people with careers get to the next step. I knew this was an excellent opportunity to learn some new methods and also network with like-minded people (or so I thought).

Many entrepreneurs start a business with the greatest intentions. They have their business plan, funding is in place, and some have already built a large client base. Far too often however many entrepreneurs try to “reinvent the wheel.” They focus on the fun things and forget about some of the things that matter the most.
