Saturday, May 26, 2012 2 comments
The contributions women have made throughout history are many as they are varied. Celebrating women's history month involves celebrating remarkable women such as Roxanne Wilson, Twanda Joseph, Dr. Leslie Dauphin, Chip Hurd, and Joy Enriquez all of whom excel while maintaining various roles in business, science, television, and music.


Among other characteristics, Roxanne Wilson is described by Donald Trump as "very, very smart," brilliant, a good speaker, and very impressive. Wilson was the first African American woman to make it to the final four during season five of NBC's, The Apprentice.

Intelligence, ambition, and congeniality are traits that enabled Wilson to secure a spot on the show. Along with the ability to lead and counsel, these same traits contribute to Wilson's success as an appellate attorney, business owner, television host, speaker, and author.

Wilson is proof that perseverance pays. "If you never try, you won't ever fail, but you won't succeed either," she advises.

As an author, speaker, trainer, and talk show host, Twanda Joseph is positioned to transform the workplace in a meaningful and creative way. A former Arthur Andersen employee, Joseph's career took a drastic turn when the firm was indicted for its involvement in the Enron accounting scandal. Even though the Andersen scandal cast a shadow on her career, Joseph chose to turn tragedy into triumph. In 2002, Joseph formed WiseEffects to address challenges employees face in corporate America.

WiseEffects is a professional services firm whose mission is to "use multiple communication channels to connect employees with wisdom for the workplace."

In addition to hosting radio and television broadcasts, Joseph serves as a facilitator for seminars on diversity, change management, conflict resolution, and communication.


Dr. Leslie Ann Dauphin is a scientist, lecturer, and public speaker. Dauphin is also a columnist for a number of notable publications and the author of The Germ Handbook--a self-help guide to avoiding infectious diseases.

Since 2002, Dauphin has served as a microbiologist for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. Her research contributions to public health have been presented and published at scientific conferences in the U.S. and abroad.

Dauphin is a native of Detroit, Michigan, a wife, and mother. She is lauded for her service in the U.S. Army as well as her role as a teacher and mentor of youth and young adults.


Chip Hurd is known best for portraying Penny Gordon's mother on the 70's sitcom, Good Times. She is also the mother of daughters, Kim and Alexis Fields.

An accomplished actress, Hurd has more than 10 years of experience on stage, in film and television. Among her credits, Hurd has directed sitcoms, All of Us, Girlfriends, Hanging with Mr. Cooper, Hannah Montana, Living Single, One on One, and The Parkers. Her current role entails being a dialogue coach for comedians, athletes, recording artists and other entertainers.

To date, Hurd's most fulfilling role is serving as senior director for Inspired By Media Group's breakthrough audio production, The Bible Experience. Hurd describes the role as "one of the most extraordinary blessings God has bestowed upon [her]."


Recording artist and founder of Joyful Child Records, Joy Enriquez is an entertainment industry veteran. Debuting at age 15 on CBS' Star Search, Enriquez garnered an impressive 11 consecutive wins in the female vocalist category while on the show. At 18, Enriquez released her first album on LaFace Records.

A spokes model for L'Oreal and voice talent, Enriquez is best known for her role on Warner Brother's hit television series, 7th Heaven.

In addition to her passion for making a 'joyful sound', with husband and super producer, Rodney Jerkins, Enriquez mentors young women who struggle with drug and alcohol abuse, addictions, depression, eating disorders, and unplanned pregnancy.

Internet Business Search (Know Your Industry)

Thursday, May 10, 2012 0 comments
There are so many marketers out there that claim you will get rich by signing up or buying there product. The kicker on that is that they usually claim you can achieve this success with virtually no work involved. I must admit that I fell victim to these ploys a few times in my career and it always seemed too good to be true and it was. There is much money to be made online but lets get real - you need to know what you are doing and you need to put some work in.

I have taken some courses in the early days of my online marketing career that were strictly an ebook. This to me isn't the best method because I believe you need to be shown how to do the proper steps on setting up your business. For instance when you are talking about how to set up your blog site with a certain program or provider how is the inexperienced marketer going to know how to do the set up without some visual guidance. How would they be able to set up for some visual marketing just by reading the instructions out of an eBook or any book for that matter. Yes it can be done but not without risk of missing a step in the process or just plain doing it wrong.

As I have noted there are many different types of products and courses out there to learn how to be effective in the business of internet marketing. To achieve success you really need to get involved and start networking with people who are already having success in the industry. Find out how they got there business up and running. What methods they are using to keep there business profitable. What out there is hype and what really works. Ask questions and you will find people are more willing to share there information with you than maybe you had thought.

I believe that when you start your own Internet business getting involved as much as possible is the key. Try to do as much in your business as possible so that you know the makeup of it. Once you understand how your business works then outsource some of the tasks. If you understand your business backwards and forwards then you will have the knowledge to make intelligent adjustments.
