INNER VIEWS FROM THE MULTI-AWARD-WINNING SHADRACK FRIMPONG
 On July 26th of 2019, I (Tony Kwame Ansah, Jr or T.A.) had the pleasure of interviewing Shadrack Frimpong (S.F.). A Ghanaian young man who is the founder and C.E.O. of Cocoa360, a community-based initiative in Ghana that uses proceeds from cocoa farms to run health clinic and tuition free schools for girls.  He is the winner of the following accolades: President's Engagement Prize Winner 2015, YACE Award 2016, CocaCola Young Achiever 2017, Queen's Young Leader Award Winner 2018, Forbes 30 Under 30 2018, Richard J. Estes Global Citizenship Award 2019, Muhammad Ali Award 2019, and many more.  The purpose of our conversation was to talk about his personal development as an entrepreneur. Although there’s a saying “to not mix business with pleasure,” our persona influences risk we take as humans, especially for those willing to create a social enterprise that helps farmers, families, and females to live a prosperous, healthy and literate life like Shadrack Frimpong.    Without any further or due, the following is the short summary of our full interview.  Read now and be inspired! T.A.: What would you do without getting anything in return for it, such as money? S.F.: Already doing it via Cocoa360. I’m currently not on salary. T.A.: What gives you tremendous joy in life? S.F.: To live for the glory of God. T.A.: What is something you would do every day if you could or something you can’t survive without doing it every day?  S.F.: Prayer! Pray 3 times a day. Relationship with God allows me to lead. The rest takes care of itself. T.A.: What is your strong Why for the passions you have? S.F.: My upbringing from living on the cocoa farm and experiencing poverty first-hand as a child has been the driving force behind everything that I do. T.A.: What is your special gift or talent that people compliment you on? S.F.: I’m a good communicator & convincer. That is, I possess exceptional communication skills. T.A.: What’s 1 strength and 1 weakness that you have? S.F.: Lack of patience is a weakness of mine. Micromanagement is another weakness because leadership requires an understanding that people work at their own speed. My strength is being apologetic to others. T.A.: What is 1 future goal or 1 upcoming goal that you have right now? S.F.: I try to take it 1 day at a time. I’m currently studying public health to lead the next phase of Cocoa360. T.A.: What are your action plans to make these goals possible? S.F.: The major plan is to work hard at school. To soak in enough knowledge as possible. T.A.: Do you believe in accountability? S.F.: Yes, it’s very huge. T.A.: How will you assess your progress? S.F.: As I look back over the years, we’ve made a lot of amazing progress within 2 years as a team at Cocoa360. It was great having a conversation with you brother. Until we speak again, stay blessed, stay strong, peace be unto you, later.   This episode 17 and article was originally posted at tonyansah.com/2019/08/14/inner-views-from-the-multi-award-winning-shadrack-frimpong/ on August 14, 2019.

AMAZING STORIES TOLD WELL CAN BRING ABOUT POSITIVE CHANGE IN THE WORLD
This is the third episode of Podcast, a place where we have conversations with speakers, writers, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, innovators, inventors, investors, philanthropist and so forth about progressive solutions, progressive developments, and progressive innovations happening in the world, especially those involving Africa. On May 24th, 2019, we had the great pleasure of interviewing Ron Crosson. For those of you who don’t know him, he was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, USA. Ron is an entrepreneur, strategy + communications consultant, and filmmaker.  A man who is not afraid to get his hands dirty, not afraid to get his feet wet, and not afraid to go the extra mile in order to produce captivating and compelling stories about humanity and about society. Overall, Ron enjoys helping companies and individuals discover the essence of what makes them great and to helping them successfully communicate that, so they can deliver more and create positive change for themselves and those around them.  Below are excerpts of gems exchanged during the question and answer segment of this episode, which revolved around Ron’s personal development and growth. Read now and be inspired! What would you do every day without expecting anything significant in return like money? For me, it’s about storytelling, telling stories, stories from within, and stories about others. I find it interesting that people are willing share their personal information to me. In the process, I end up hearing jewels and gems full of wisdom. These are the type of stories that should be shared with the world and I do my part to produce such content. What are you strongly passionate about and why? It goes back to the life stories. When you share such stories, they make a great difference to the world. It’s about celebrating our achievements; it’s about the collective and about all of us achieving things. A friend of mine once said, “it’s hard to read the label from inside the bottle.” These words have always stuck with me throughout the years. For instance, coaches need coaches. When other individuals help others to see that label from a different perspective, it’s a very eye-opening experience. What is 1 strength you have and what is 1 weakness you have? I have a weakness for saying no. Also, I have a weakness for taking on too much. It bothers me when I drop the ball. Nonetheless, I love helping others. I want to describe this as a strength, but I’m kind of reluctant to. There seems to be moments in conversations I have with individuals where I find myself saying things like the following: wait one moment, one second. Can you back-up? It’s a beautiful moment because the person doesn’t recognize this glaring and flashing light event. Thus, I can naturally spot it and bring it to their attention. Do you believe in accountability and why? Yes, you must have accountability in place. Accountability is extremely important. When your passionate about doing something, you need to hold yourself accountable as much as possible. How do you assess or evaluate your progress? Yes, there are times when I sit down to look at where I am and where I want to be. I do make it a point to set goals and create achievable goals along the way for myself. It’s important to assess yourself to see how much you can achieve as well as look at what has or hasn’t been achieved yet.
