Morgan Freeman and his view on Black History Month.

Do we need to celebrate Black History Month at all?

I have mad love for Morgan Freeman; he is without doubt one of my all time favourite actors. The way he carries himself in all his movies – pure awesomeness!! There will probably be no one like him again, since his type come around once in a lifetime. Then he gave an interview about Black History Month.

Community activist and lead organiser of Black History Month Colchester joined me on The Gist recently to take about the recent spike in hate crime in the aftermath of Brexit. Recent reports have made for uncomfortable reading with the rise and (and often blatant) racist crimes against immigrants. According to records, East Anglia has seen a significant rise of hate crime since Brexit. Majority of it though has been targeted at Eastern Europeans. Enjoy the video.

The Entrepreneurs Club – Episode 2

“There is no failure, there is just learning, and learning is good” – Jackie Mellor

It was another very interesting episode of The Entrepreneurs Club with Jackie Mellor an amazing Photographer/Entrepreneur based in Essex. Jackie came across very bright and knowledgeable about business.

In this series, I asked Jackie questions pertaining to Entrepreneurship issues encountered constantly by business owners and how she has been able to learn and deal with them as she progressed in her business journey. As a photographer, Jackie has been able to combine her natural creativity with running a busy which is challenging in its own right.  I certainly learnt a lot from our interview and I hope you do too.

The Entrepreneurs Club – Episode 1 part 2

This is the second part of my interview with Vijaya Karri. In the first part, Mrs Karri took us back to when she started out in business and the difficulties she faced as a person of colour. In this 2nd instalment I asked questions about funding for aspiring business owners, government support (or the lack of it) and many more questions of interest. Her expensive knowledge of business is quite clear in this video and you can tell her success is by no fluke by any means..

The Entrepreneurs Club – Episode 1 

“If you plan to start a business, Go and Do It;  it’s never too late” – Vijaya Karri

Ok, it’s finally here! The web series I promised you about entrepreneurship is finally here. There is absolutely no substitute for experience. Some learn quite well from their own experiences, while others learn from the experiences of others. There is no shame in asking questions or learning from others, this is actually quite wise.  On the other hand, some people are against the notion of asking questions or learning from others; perhaps they believe they know it all.  The truth is you can’t know it all and the only way to forge ahead in anything you do is to simply draw on the experience of others. Regardless of your level of education or exposure, you simply cannot know it all. And if that is the case, why not learn from those who have done it before you?

Start doing what you love doing. This video is truly inspiring. A must watch for anybody looking to go into business.

Entrepreneurs are often motivated in part by the potential for great revenue or are thrilled at the notion of owning their own businesses. But to be truly successful, you have to love what you’re doing. You have to be in an industry that you truly care about and do the type of work you actually enjoy. Otherwise, you’ll never be satisfied. 

 

“Nobody has an obstacle-free path to success. Failure is part of that path. And those who fail the hardest seem to experience the most success simply because they attempted the most things. If you’re not failing, you’re not trying” – INCOME

It is perhaps wise to recognise that failure is sometimes an option, as long as you know how to recover  and learn from it.
