Music Exec Steve Stoute & CNN’s Soledad O’Brien Spotlight Black Entrepreneurs


Originally posted on AllHipHop:

Prior to the TV premiere of CNN’s “Black in America 4,” host Soledad O’Brien convened an invitation-only screening and panel discussion in New York City on Black entrepreneurism in America. The panel included well-known record executive, author, and businessman Steve Stoute, who offered his thoughts on the topic along with the documentary, set to air tomorrow, November 13.

In the clip below, Stoute, who has led Urban Music divisions for both Sony and Interscope Geffen, helping spawn the careers of Eminem, Mariah Carey, Will Smith and others, offered his own sound advice for Black entrepreneurs with business start-up dreams of their own:

About chetachio

Hello All, My name is Chetachi "Tachi" Odelugo. I am a aspiring physician who wants to be the friend and an adviser that patients can lean on for support and a friend who answers and advises on how to best deal with their individual situation. While I have a passion for languages, traveling, and dancing, being a physician is what allows me to fulfill my ultimate fervor to aid that little girl with asthma who never thought she could run track, or the elderly man suffering from Parkinson’s Disease that is now in Spain watching his grandson play soccer, or even the 40 year old woman with breast cancer attend her first breast cancer awareness walk as a survivor; dreams that they never thought they could without my help and the help of other physicians. So imagine my dismay when I find out that to go to medical school would probably put my in debt for half of my life and I would have to live on a budget of $0. I got tired of being BROKE, tired of struggling, tired of watching as my mom worked endlessly to support my siblings and I. I got tired of seeing her bare the struggle all by herself. Living paycheck to paycheck just wasn't cutting it anymore. So when I started my own MLM (mult-level marketing) business, I knew I had nothing to loose and so much to gain. Since then, I've become a director of my business generating new leads everyday. I have also discovered several tactics on how to turn cold prospects into warm, future business partners. I created this group to help individuals who own their own businesses to market more efficiently on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. I have found that many people will try to utilize social media networks to promote their business and often come out unsuccessful because they are not properly using these social media sites to their advantage. I also create this blog in order for those who have failed at business or those who want to take a shot at entrepreneurship can have an easier way to find primary and/or side projects that will supplement their income. I hope you join me and that my efforts help everyone.
