NOT EVERYONE WAS MEANT TO BE PRESIDENT

By Farrah Gray A question I am often asked by my friends and associates generally concerns whether they or a friend should consider striking out on their own in business. I do not believe that there is one person who can honestly say that they have not thought about what it would be like to be in business for themselves. Many people dream about being masters of their own destinies and captains of their own ship. However, far fewer of us take this Sunday afternoon wishful thinking beyond just that; wishful thinking. This is probably a good thing given the […]

DISSATISFACTION SHOULD BRING ABOUT A CHANGE

By Farrah Gray On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King was a Baptist minister, Nobel Peace Prize winner and pivotal civil rights hero, husband, father and friend who was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. Reflecting on the 40th anniversary of the tragic assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the question to ask is whether or not his legacy is still alive and in living color with a person who has a permanent suntan being the Democratic front-runner for the Presidency of the United States of America. As we reminiscence about the martyred Dr. King’s historic […]

SELF-MADE INDEPENDENCE

By Farrah Gray An entrepreneurial mindset is re-emerging in Black America.  New-breed entrepreneurs are no longer obsessed with lack of opportunities, but with creatively creating their future out of nothing into something. Necessity is the mother of invention! Becoming self-made gives you a fighting chance. If it is your dream to become successful, achieve financial independence, earn a lot of money and become a millionaire in five years. My advice? Become an entrepreneur. History is full of entrepreneurs who saw a need, met it and made a fortune in the process. More than half of the world’s self-made millionaires are […]

INCOME GENERATION FITNESS

By Farrah Gray Whatever your profession – you will never be able to stand idle or underutilized. Dynamism is the new catchword and anyone who deals with the problem of constant upward mobility needs requires being ‘fit’ to keep up. It isn’t enough to be merely `good’ at one’s work, field, or trade; one requires excelling to make the difference. To do so, one has to be totally up to date with the latest that is happening in one’s chosen field. The biggest issue facing the people today – it is immaterial what your discipline happens to be or how […]

ECONOMIC EMERGENCY

By Farrah Gray You read in the newspapers, you see on the news broadcast, you hear on the radio that Congress was considering amnesty for millions of illegal foreign workers. I began to wonder how many of us can read the faces, see on the news or hear on talk radio shows Black Americans that have lost their jobs or could not get jobs due conditions created by those being considered for amnesty. In the context of tremendous change in the economy and labor market, many people are deciding that self-employment is the right choice for them. People work for […]

THE AMERICAN DREAM S.O.S. (Sink Or Swim)

By Farrah Gray The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was 36 years old when he preached “The American Dream” sermon as Co-Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church on Sunday, July 4, 1965. “You can get so busy in life that you forget holidays and other days, and it had slipped my mind altogether that today was the Fourth of July. And I said to him, “It is coincidental and quite significant, and I think when I get to Atlanta and go to my pulpit, I will try to preach a sermon in the spirit of the founding fathers of our […]

Success Has You Written All Over It

By Farrah Gray Are you a butcher, baker or a candle stick maker?  Your ideas at first may not appear to you as “big” ideas that can go to market. A young man living and working near a college campus could see the opportunity wanting to open a small chicken wing restaurant. What is great about his idea? He was selling “the sizzle” and not “the steak” with 18 different hot sauces flavors to choose from kept the college students coming back for more. When I arrived in Jackson, Mississippi for our meeting and taste test I was convinced along […]
