E67 - Leave It All Behind
Kelly and Gregory explore how he was born and raised in one of Chicago’s poorest and most violent neighborhoods. His family moved from there into a public housing apartment, a.k.a. the projects. He mentions where he grew up because there seems to be some mystification with people who “made it out” of the ghetto. He has spent most of his life working in finance in one form or another. In 2005 while working in accounting, he started attending DePaul University, majoring in business and marketing. Every subject spoke to him; it was like all the abstract ideas, and one-off methods he has learned working in accounting and sales had finally given solid form, and now he was able to use them at will.  He immediately went to work for himself as a business coach. He would canvass the neighborhood shops and restaurants around the places he had grown up and ask questions about how they ran their businesses in exchange for marketing and business advice; this is where he learned one of the most important lessons about entrepreneurs.  Most of them had no genuine business understanding, and they were good at cooking to open a restaurant. They were good at fixing cars, so that they would open an auto body shop. Most had no marketing plan or expertise. No business plans. No financial plan. They were going what they knew and making just enough to avoid closing and would help in any way he could, mostly in Planning. It eventually moved him into assisting other people to start businesses.  Then a few years later, Ernst and Young. It was the same thing he had seen with the start-up businesses. Many of them were miserable; they had chased their dream down. They were supposed to be happy; but none of them were.  It led him to dig deeper. He wanted to know why these people were getting the things they asked for but were not fulfilled. The answers came when he went back to school for psychology. It opened a whole new world of understanding about people and their motivations. It turned out to be the case that the unhappy people were unhappy because they had not tapped into their root “why.” They had no idea what they wanted. They were too busy listening to outside sources and chasing money to know what was driving them. And that is what I do now with B.E. Consulting. I help people get to their root “why” so we can discover what will truly bring them joy and fulfillment.  Tune-in and listen to the full episode. #kut2thachase #unscripted #unbridled #episode4everyone #podcast #e67 #leaveitallbehind

E66 - The Lover, E-Commerce
Vonleshia and Gregory explore her love for eCommerce. This episode provides insight regarding setbacks and resetting expectations when you lose everything. Our featured guest Vonleshia Davidson has worked on creative projects and events with names such as Kandi Burruss, Keke Wyatt, Lisa Wu, Radio 2 Atlanta, Ming Lee, Miss Conceited, April Love, Lance Gross, Kenny Burns, Charming Charlton, and more after losing everything in 2014.  She needed to figure out the best way to rebuild her business. Her salon and boutique were no longer. She could not afford to re-open another storefront, so she jumped into the e-commerce industry and has since successfully sold on multiple eCommerce platforms and built a six-figure business doing so. Vonleshia founded Dime Diva as an E-Commerce business strategist in 2012, where she and her team help entrepreneurs from setting up to operations. Individuals who are fruitful in business, particularly in eCommerce, need a specific drive; however, individuals who have been selling on the internet for quite a long time are bored.  Or for individuals who are merely beginning, the watchword is guaranteeing or recovering your MOJO.  For those of you who don't know what magic is, as indicated by the Urban Dictionary, it implies '..individual certainty and appeal..' Mojo likewise means wizardry or fascination.  That is what accomplishment in eCommerce takes; however, to radiate certainty and mystique and give your items a mysterious appeal and appeal, you need inspiration!   Tune in and listen to this amazing guest as she shares wonderful tips & tools of starting, running, and operating an eCommerce business.

E54 - D & I
Dr. Olivia J. Cook and Gregory discuss how nowadays, you will likely hear the following words uttered at least once by everyone in the room.  D & I = Diversity and Inclusion. This phrase gets tossed around so much that it has almost lost its meaning. But when we talk about D&I, we're talking about people who feel marginalized and excluded daily.   It's also often confused with the idea of belonging, which is something else entirely. Diversity is like being invited to a party, inclusion is being asked to dance, and belonging is dancing like no one's watching." In other words, it's not enough to have more seats at the table for marginalized folks if they don't feel safe or believe they need to act like someone they're not to fit in.  I'm sure we can all agree that there is a need for a sense of belonging in the workplace & society. But let's dig a little deeper into why this is so important, what makes people feel like they belong, and how we as a whole can do better and be better. "By acting compassionately, by helping to restore justice and to encourage peace, we are acknowledging that we are all part of one another" - Rahm Dass. Tune -in and listen to the full episode and great insight towards D & I. #kut2thachase #podcast #episode54  #diversity  #inclusion
