Three Reasons Why Your Business Should Participate in Community Parades
After recently participating in the annual ‘Million Father March’ Back to School Parade that is organized by Phillip Jackson, Founder & Director of the Black Star Project, I am inspired to offer three reasons why your business should also participate in community parades. But first, a little about the Million Father March, a 365 day-a year initiative for Black men who want to educate and develop Black children. This particular parade focuses on men accompanying children for the first day of school. A great time was had by all attendees and we were able to support and promote a long-term committed community organization.

Special Thanks to the Supporters of the Teena’s Legacy 5k Peace Walk
It’s always a great honor for me to “Thank” people who support what I do and also, I believe that one’s giving should support their beliefs. Therefore, I offer “Special Thanks” to the Cider Enterprises contributors and the many local groups and individuals, who gave their time and money in support of the Teena’s Legacy 5k Peace Walk.
Our Peace Walk on Saturday, May 2, 2015 was victorious on all accounts. Founder Jamika Smith pulled off an excellent fundraising campaign, gathering community support for her Retreat and Summer Apprentice Program that teaches 16 – 21 year old young ladies the trade of reviving, restoring and reupholstering furniture.
Graduation Reflections About My Business Development Process
Reflections about my business development process abound during this season of graduations. I am proud to be a graduate of the Sunshine Enterprises Community Business Academy. It confirmed my 2014 affirmation that “I AM more than enough!” and my conviction that “I deserve the best.” Completion dispelled the fears I had erected: I am too old to learn; I might have a hard time adjusting to a rigorous twelve weeks of study; would I be able to apply the information obtained to help myself and others too? And I can proudly declare, “Yes I can!” I practice and apply the things I learned about business for myself first and then with others. You see, I have to walk the talk and now feel fulfilled in getting my own house in order.
