Life growing up in the '70s and '80s looked different to me than it did for close friends of mine from the same place, same time, and same school system. Yet, I was oblivious to the differences until now.
The video will give you more background on how our friendship came about, but everything is centered around one woman named Maggie Lipford from Humboldt, Tennessee. I learned even more about her in this discussion with her family.
When I first started my business, I was inspired by other women doing amazing things, such as investment coaching, teaching technical courses, marketing coaching, fitness training, business coaching, providing business services, or any number of things, using their unique skills with a feminine touch. Those same women have continued to inspire me to push through the entrepreneurial roller coaster ride that can rattle those of us who like security and certainty in our lives.
Angela and I first met online when she was an online reputation specialist. After doing that for a while, she wasn't quite feeling the vibe anymore, so she segued into investment coaching, which was more her style. The beauty of being an entrepreneur means that you can figure things out as you go. If one pathway isn't working for you, then change directions to develop something else. Now, Angela has a thriving...
As a writer for NewsLanded, our founder, Sally Hendrick, has focused on statistics related to the pandemic and the racial equality movement born from it. The following is a quote from one of her articles, which you may read in full here.
"With numerous protests continuing all over the United States to put a spotlight on systemic racism, police brutality, and the lack of education of African American history taught in schools, there is a movement happening in the cloud where groups of people are coming together to educate themselves and others, so they can be informed and do something to contribute. All too often, protests will happen, raising awareness around a news story or isolated situation, but the embers soon die without real change taking place. White people want to do something. Black people want to do something. Nearly everyone involved seems to want to do something to keep this conversation going to get to the root of the problems that have faced this country for...

As protests against police brutality have popped up all over the United States in the wake of the pandemic, members of the Shout Your Cause focus group wanted to dive deep into getting educated about the history of our nation as pertains to racial equality (or the lack thereof). We had a discussion online, live on Facebook and YouTube for anyone and everyone to hear. It takes courage to not be afraid to talk about these issues, as they can bring up sensitivities that are not always apparent.
