Disclaimer: All of my guests and I profess Christianity, speak of scripture references according to life and the chapters we (yes, I am a contributing author too) added to this project.   It was a pleasure to speak with Sheila Farr, the visionary author and two contributing authors of the Amazon Best Seller A Joyful Heart: Reflections of Gratitude, Grace, and Praise. The book title speaks for itself loud and clear, especially this Thanksgiving holiday season. Authors Adeyinka Kilani, Tia Locke-Simmons, and Sheila share their life lesson chapters. The hope is that as people think about these past few years, this book will guide them into an attitude of gratitude, grace, and position of praise; it all comes from a grateful heart.

Today’s conversation is with jazz vocalist Grammy-nominated artist Carmen Lundy. It happened on my birthday, a gift I cherish! Conversation highlights: Music opened the world to her, but she began in Miami (hometown). She went to NYC to launch her recording career, not get into nightclub singing, which is demanding. But she worked hard gigging while going to school! Take a listen, and you can understand the magnitude of her talent, hoot spa, love for her musical studies while singing six nights a week! Her work in Europe Her brother Curtis, their background, and its impact on her music How she creatively worked through the early lockdown days of covid and the negativity in the world.  Carmen spent 8-to-10-hour days, four ½ months to edit VHS film that celebrates the music & conversations of her mother and aunts, singers in a gospel group for over 40 years! To revisit that “time tunnel” was a gift, and Nothing But The Blood was born! Her Grammy-nominated work Modern Ancestors https://youtu.be/8dyKPez2SM0 We speak of her work Soul to Soul. Had I not been in strict fangirl mode, I would have asked her about her creations - When they would learn and Daybreak! (lol missed opportunity) The pandemic has been tough on professional musicians – contribute to Afrasia Productions/ PayPal &Venmo or The Jazz Foundation of America https://jazzfoundation.org/covid19fund/ Website - https://carmenlundy.com/    Shop, dance, enjoy the videos; it’s an experience! You absolutely must “shop” while exploring Carmen’s website! My personal favorites/ Jazz And The New Songbook – Live At The Madrid (2-cd collection). Soul To Soul / Modern Ancestors.

Big move, bold move. Wait, the story gets bigger! What happens when an Angel investor volunteers to assist with financing Denise's new business? Keep listening; this is so cool! Does Denise answer the question-are coworking spaces worth it? Valid question seeing that these spaces are becoming quite popular. What is the component, the basis for building a coworking space that has continued to serve the community for 25 years? What's Denise's secret to success? Her secret sauce is the "Just in time experience." When a customer comes to The Concierge Office Suites, they expect to have all office resources available to them, thus "anything a traditional office has, it's there at Concierge. Concisely, service is the main ingredient. Hold onto your chair! This lady, with a background in commercial real estate, also has a FARM!

 Today's guest Terrall E. Tillman Sr. (author, poet, self-made authority on prevention, intervention, and incarceration), transparently takes us on his 19-year journey in the federal prison system. Terrall is transparent, takes us into the cause for his incarceration, the impact, and trying to re-enter as a free man; it's not for the faint of heart. Website: https://reentry-030.com/ What we discuss: Factors that led to his incarceration Impact of serving 11 years in the federal penitentiary Reentry behavior- hit the ground running, five years of positive forward movement. Walking down a road only to meet an informant-the encounter brought consequences after two years. His life now: Five years’ probation lived out 2 as of today. He is missioned to help the incarcerated re-enter this new world and work as a case manager, a mentor. “It’s all bout the mindset” is what this straight shooter tells clients. There are a lot of re-entry programs out there now because re-entry is an entity. So resources are available to clients. P.S. It’s not the PO’s (parole officer) job to get resources for those on probation.

  A conversation that I had with a boomer woman working remotely for months sparked this episode. This model works for her family, her mental health and represents how to end her working days with the company. She gets a call from corporate; everybody is back in the office within 30 days! This woman had purposed from day one to work the rest of her days remotely.     Being Christian, she asked me to pray. I told her that I would, but what came to mind was the question, what your exit strategy?  I posed that question, her response was that she does not have one, though she already vowed not to return to the office. It's been months, but she has done nothing except pray that what she wants to have happened desperately works in her favor.   Today's monologue is my view from another window, not belittling anyone. I'm asking a big question to inspire you to create your exit strategy, open your eyes as to why this must be done.  I'm going to tell you why you need to have your exit strategy in place, what the Bible and some of the incredible teachers of the Bible have to say about preparation.

Marketing expert Tim Fitzpatrick – “let's first start by defining what marketing is. I like to keep things as simple as possible. So, to me, marketing is getting someone who has a need or a problem that you can solve to know, like, and trust you.  It always comes back to the fundamentals. So what are the fundamentals? I like to call them the marketing strategy Trilogy.” I also put together some resources for your audience that I think will help support what we talked about, https://www.rialtomarketing.com/her-business/ Key Points/show notes upon request (margo@margolovett.com – “show notes” in the subject line) Okay, the job of marketing is to warm potential prospects up to what we do, get them interested to the point where they're ready to buy or take that next step in some way, shape, or form with your company in downturns, a lot of business owners, one of the first things they look at doing is cutting marketing, Hey, how many employees can I cut... How much marketing can I cut? And to me, I think that is a recipe for disaster long-term, because if you do not have marketing bringing in customers, how can you expect to do business. If you can find a way to continue to invest in marketing while most of your competitors are cutting, you're setting yourself up to differentiate your business and laying a foundation where I think your business will thrive long-term. If you do not have the fundamentals down, there's no way that you can step up to the plate with the baseball bat and expect to hit a fastball. Your target market, you've gotta know who your ideal clients are; who do I want to work with? Who do I do the best work for? Start to look at your messaging; okay, your messaging is what will create clarity, it's gonna create engagement, it's what makes your company memorable and magnetic. Okay. One of the biggest mistakes businesses make when they communicate what they do is focus on them and how great they are, and the problem is our customers; they don't care about us; they care about what we can do for them. 3rd step is your plan - the plan helps you identify when and what you're gonna execute on from a marketing perspective; okay, it gives you a framework that you can follow Marketing plans are a 90-day sprint.

We are given an inside look at three women in situations that have broken the spirit and claimed the lives of other women. Because of the anthology Finally Free, I had a sit-down conversation with women that stand ready to share their story of “how I got over,” They have endured. Valerie C. Thompson knew about generational toxic relationships. Her shout from the rooftop these days is “own your truth and rise!” The advice that she gives is to gain your identity - Pray, meditate, see your transformation, and practice self-care. When you live a dark reality like Valerie, the light opens up insights and she shares actionable steps to healing in her chapter.  Connect with her – Ownyourtruthval@gmail.com Carleeka Basnight- Menendez shines the lite on the life of a woman at odds with food and said, “I hate food.”  Can you imagine the chained life that weighs ten times a day, the mental battle that is faced every day, and the day of reckoning, a bony reflection from a mirror, and the life-or-death decision that had to be made? To choose life feels good and Carleeka says “to anyone out there who allows something to keep you sick, silent, and stuck, your time is now to be free.”  Connect with her – Cbasnight@insoinc.net Mavis A Creagh tells us “it takes faith, walking boldly, standing tall, and moving forward to truly be free.” Mavis expounds on a litany of incidents that can bind us but answers the flip side with victory! Mavis writes, “FREE from the years of self-sabotage and personal neglect while putting others first.” As the interviewer, I asked myself, how many times have I asked that question! What I appreciate is Mavis’s advice to grab faith, daily reminders of our past will come up, but the application of faith is the difference Connect with her – Maviscreagh@yahoo.com

It takes making “bad decisions” sometimes to become an empire builder. CPA, MBA, author Ursula Garrett is an empire builder. During this conversation, she reveals growing up poor in the south, being a teen mom, choosing marriage instead of the college scholarship she earned. Ursula joined the military (traded her pumps for combat boots) with becoming an entrepreneur in the seat of her heart!  https://www.linkedin.com/in/ursula-garrett/ Blooper alert! The internet dropped Margo’s connection, but the expert carries the show like a pro! Takeaways  Empire building as you work a job Ursula took local college courses preparing. As an employee, she stayed for 2 ½ intentional years, long enough to get her CPA license, intentionally work her job, and have a plan. Two kinds of employees discussed.  1- The person that stays on a job long enough to retire (50’s, the ’60s) the kids are taken care of and out, now it’s time to become an entrepreneur. 2 - The other doesn’t want to work for anyone, but when they do, they expect to make a lot of money with minimal skillset – this person moves from job to job, get rich scheme to another – this employee worries Ursula. They need grounding before becoming an entrepreneur. While you are an employee, save money! When you get a raise, keep & invest. Wealth and businesses are built systematically. Plateau to Summit (author Ursula Garrett) Our guide on how to start a business correctly covers how to operate a business, budget, get along with people. Building begins with a plan (written preferably). The business plan will keep you focused; help you build your core – the seat of your money. Always focus on your core, your mission, purpose, and this is how I am going to get there. Stick with the plan! Have a continuity plan! Your financials tell the bones of your business and offer ways to fix your business. It takes time to be an overnight success. It takes planning. Put your total effort into your plan. Must have systems in place when you cannot do business as usual.
