They always say "Network Up". But everybody isn't always ready or in position to do that.

Some folks are about to be mad at me, but this won't be the first or last time. This is a timely conversation. We ALL have to start somewhere. In my early days, I had to jump out and learn how to network the old fashioned way. Going to events, mixers and meetings. I didn't have social media (this was 1994). So I had no choic...

I've always felt if real estate investors can get creative financing, business owners can offer creative compensation packages.

 

There was a time when companies would predominantly offer commission based roles to their sales teams. A lot of people loved this because it was mostly uncapped earning potential. If there were high ticket items being sold, a great Sales Specialist could make a killing in earnings. I know, because part...

In many Black & Brown communities, estate planning was not something we talked about as we were growing up. I mean, in MY family, estate planning was never a topic of conversation at the dinner table. None of my friends families were talking about it either. But my generation Gen Xers are talking about it. I started talking to my son about it when he was 14. Some people may say that a teenager isn’t interested in such talk. I s...

When you're just starting out, growing and hiring people for your team can be a daunting task. But it's not impossible. As you grow and scale you need to be able to make smart decisions and make sound hiring moves in order to bring on the best people for your teams. A lot of small businesses struggle when it comes to hiring people for their team. There's a lot of sentiment that says, "hey, I can put an ad on Faceboo...

Not everyone is at the same level in business. Some people are content with 6 figures, and that's OK for them. If you are them, this episode isn't for you. But if you're at 6 figures pushing for 7, or if you're at just about 7 figures and are stalled, this episode is for you.

Throughout my years in business, I went through cycles. In each cycle I learned valuable business lessons that carried me through to the next l...

Make That Money! That's a long time mantra for any entrepreneur. But at what point do we go from thinking about sales and profits, to what we do with all of that profit? Sure we can invest it back into the business, and you know that investing in your own business is key. But we rarely think about real portfolio investment strategies. With so many resources on the market it can be dizzying to find what we need that meets us whe...

Ladies, can we have some real talk for a moment? This is a long one! Women of color who are founders and/or entrepreneurs who are grossing 6 figures with their businesses, yes, I want to talk to you. This advice is applicable to almost anyone, but I want to talk to you!

I LOVE that there are so many women doing the damn thing. I LOVE that so many women of color are taking their fate into their own hands and are on this journey to bu...

Ladies look. Can we have some real talk here? We don’t start a business to create a JOB for ourselves. We create opportunities and provide solutions for our clients. We go into business for ourselves to make an impact, make connections and make money. And in the beginning, we’re fine with being everything for the business. Somewhere along the line though, we end up painting ourselves into a JOB. Yep, I said it. A JOB. 

 

I don’t know...

Whether you’re starting a company or knee-deep in one, EVERYONE needs an exit strategy. But I know that many of you aren’t even thinking that far ahead yet because you’re in the thick of growing your business. But I’m here to tell you that no matter where you are on the scale, you should always be thinking of your exit. Whether that looks like selling, stepping back and installing leadership or passing the business on to a family ...

Ownership is so important. In a previous episode you heard me talk about compete ownership from content all the way down to the raw manufacturing. I never get tired of talking about this because just as it’s important to own your brand (trademarks, copyright, patents, etc) it is vitally important to own your platforms where you deliver your content, products and services. I am a firm believer in ownership and not many people even t...

I love networking. But I’m an old fashioned networker. It’s all about relationships and connection. I don’t do this new school social media connecting thing. You know where people follow and add thousands of people claiming it’s their network. Where they know maybe 1% of the people they connect with. Then there is the old supposed form of networking many of you try. You know, sign up to go to an event, meet a bunch of people who ma...

Is there is or is there ain't a Labor Shortage? The world has gone mad! Well, not really. The big to do in the news is the perceived labor shortage. One of my other companies is a recruitment firm (Graham Talent Group) and I’m telling you some of my clients are hiring up a storm. Yes, others are having a bit of a difficult time in finding talent, but after I counseled them on salary and remote or hybrid work, they’ve seen some ...

Let me start off with this disclaimer. I understand many women don’t want more than a 6 or 7 figure company. That’s cool. But this conversation, this episode is for the sisters who want to aim high and make mogul moves to grow 8 & 9 figure companies. And I make no apologies about it.


When I first started in business, I set my mind to accept making a high six figures. After about two years, I said f*** that! And decide to go for ...

In this episode of Mogul Chix Chat, I have a conversation with Karwanna Dyson-Irving about how small companies can get a piece of that government contracting pie. A lot of times, we leave money on the table because of fear, uncertainty, rumors about slow government payments or just not knowing. Karwanna demystifies all of the chatter about government contracts and tells you how you can get a piece of the action and grow your busine...

In today’s volatile political climate, it’s almost impossible to avoid the subject of politics in business. Political chaos can wreck havoc in a business, especially when you are vocal about your personal views. Business and politics, while often intersecting at certain points, should never be done if you can help it. It’s increasingly harder to remain apolitical these days. It’s as if we’re losing the ability to remain neutral and...

It’s exciting to be that brand or company that EVERYBODY loves. I mean who wouldn’t want that kind of star power? Who wouldn’t want to be the next Walmart, Facebook or Nike where we can serve any and everybody, right? I mean, they say Facebook has over a billion users. Wouldn’t we all love to be in that situation, where millions of people are all excited about and using our products or services. Right? But hold on, slow down. That ...

Welcome back to this special episode of Mogul Chix Chat. If you’ve been listening to me over the years, you know I rarely toot my own horn or do a hard sell on any of my offerings. But this is different. In this episode I want to talk about my upcoming CEO Mastermind and hopefully answer some of your questions along the way. 

 

While there are tons of things out there for women in general (and I’m grateful), the offerings for women o...

There’s nothing wrong with wanting a small, easy to manage business. Nothing at all. But there are people out there who want more.  

 

There are people out there, like me, who are laser focused on growing companies that 1) build wealth, 2) provide opportunities, 3) create jobs and 4) create legacies for our families that will carry on long after we’re gone. I’m in that camp. A lot of you are in that camp. If you’re not, you can still...
