I know the owners of this impressive and inspring publication, but I didn't really know their story. I learned more as I was in the city this weekend giving a speech before the California Black Chamber of Commerce. Watch this video and read the full story here, to learn more about a publication that is so much more than a publication.  It is a story of African-American entrepreneurship, a 45 year journey of marriage and friendship and belief, and partnership.  A story of what is "possible" in communities both big and small, wealthy and not so much recognized as such (I believe poverty is a state of mind).

Read this inspiring story, share it with children and friends.  America and the world needs much more of this.  This is the movement that comes "next."  The silver rights movement for financial dignity, and economic empowerment of the poor, the sidelined and the underserved here and around the world. Fostering more of this is precisely why I recently launched the Operation HOPE of Small Business & Entrepreneurship.

 Let's go…..
