The Local Take: Atlanta Business League Super Tuesday and Women of Vision Breakfast Oct 1

abl_super_tuesday_2019.jpg

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I speak with Dr. Felecia Phillips, the CEO of PPICW, master business strategist and co-chair for The Atlanta Business League's Super Tuesday celebration. 

I ask Dr. Phillips to share exactly what is Super Tuesday.  She explains that for 35 years the Atlanta Business League has shined a light on the success stories of African American women leaders, from corporate America to entrepreneurs doing their thing as leaders in the Atlanta business community and beyond. 

Ms. Phillips mentions that this year's Woman of Vision is Ms. Sue Ross, also known as The PhotoGriot of Atlanta. 

Phillips talks about African American women becoming entrepreneurs out of necessity, from experiencing a lay-off, or chasing their passion. More African American women are starting their own businesses.  This year's theme is "Becoming..." as more and more women become business owners. 

We discuss "intrapreneurship" where business are started with the corporate culture.  She also speaks about the importance of having a resource circle that includes an attorney, accountant, and more.  She speaks about a business turning from a necessity to an opportunity.  The ABL Super Tuesday sessions on October 1 are informative and provide the necessary tools to sustain your business's success.
