Activate2K17 Conference Closes With Finale But Opens Major Doors For Entrepreneurs!

#Activate2K17 Conference Closes With Finale But Opens Major Doors For Entrepreneurs!

Written by: Roz A. Gee, Huff Post Contributor

………….The caliber of speakers, presenters, vendors, entertainers were second-to-none. They each brought a unique edge that they owned. Although a surprising cold front hit the east coast on Friday, it didn’t stop the Activators from heating up the city with their passion, purpose and persistence. Lucinda brought in a number of special guests that represented marketplace and media icons such as BETESSENCE and HSN.

Personally, I thought it was both intriguing and unique that Activate invited HSN to participate in the grand finale. When I tell you, I witnessed firsthand the sheer excitement and exuberating joy of the beautiful African American faces when they were given possibly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pitch their product, marketplace idea or concept to decision-making executives of HSN. That’s major. The experience was like having an opportunity to appear on Shark Tank, without having to be sifted through thousands and thousands of applicants. No red tape. No hassle. Activate kicked this door wide open for their attendees. Although I covered media, I too, was allowed to pitch my marketplace concept to HSN, and received specific step-by-step instructions on what to do next. Stop the presses! This is one reason why so many attendees are still buzzing about Activate.

Lucinda Cross speaking at GLE Annual event hosted by Yandy Smith-Harris

Egl 11-05 230pm w-24 (1) Egl 11-05 230pm w-32

 

“The Passion + Purpose = Profit event on Friday night was super inspiring. The panelists, who included Tiara Williams, Monique Rodriguez, Tamika Mallory, Lucinda Cross, Tashera Simmons, Bershan Shaw and Precious Avorkliyah-Evans, encouraged everyone to put themselves first and do what makes them happy.

Either you can be Passionately Poor or you can be Passionately Profitable. When you are Passionately Poor it means that you are passionate about something, and people see your hard work, but you’re not getting paid. Passionately Profitable is when you are dedicated to your passion and do whatever it takes to brand yourself, and turn that into profits.

Each and every person’s passion is organic. Your Passion is created from what you LOVE plus what you’re GREAT at. If you don’t know what your passion is, you need to get out and experiment with different things you like to do onestop plumbers. If you try something you thought you liked and it does not work, you get up and try the next thing, and then the next thing and then the next until you have found your passion.” —Recap article featured in EGL written by @Tawana Coleman, Speak Free Communications

3 Sure-fire Ways to Make Really Bad Life Decisions

MVI_8880.MOV.00_03_54_17.Still002When we set out to achieve our goals and reach our milestones in life we can be sure on at least one thing – there will be difficult decisions that need to be addressed.

In fact, my #Activate rule of thumb states that if there are no difficult decisions on the table, then the milestone is minor and the goal is too small!

When it is time to make a decision in life we are placed in a position called POWER. We get a chance to choose what to do next and what happens next. Often our first reaction to the most difficult decisions is to “push it under the rug” but we all know that’s not productive.

The next response is often times to bully ourselves into stressful energy, but that never seems to work either. We’re much better off with the solution I call “Let It Flow.”

F- Free your mind and go into silence. Quiet the inner chatter so that the truth can speak.

L- Let go of the need to be right. Let go of the fear of being wrong, and the pride to have control. (more…)

The Law of Increase

14590043_10209308860691459_8729167914624794249_oActivate Your Vision(TM): The year is not over yet. The year is still unfolding miracles, signs and wonders. I received a full blessing and a major, major contract deal last week and it’s just a sign that there is more coming. We must do things in life expecting a specific increase to happen.

I want you to consciously use the Law of Increase. The Law of Increase gradually shifts your thinking to see more of the goodness in your life and others. The Law of Increase opens the door for you to produce miracles out of the most powerful vessel we have, “the mouth”. (more…)

On The Agenda But Not Part Of The Program!

“When you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression.”

It appears to me that the issues in the community are on the agenda for discussion but they are not on the program and tables of priority when it is time to make changes within our broken system. 
 
My mother used to say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. The system is broke. It has been broken for years. How about over 500 years of brokenness covered in a word called privilege. 
 
Is it possible to clean up and restore over 500 years of blood, sweat and tears? 
 
The invisible barrier that once was, is now painted with human blood. Anything that is divided can be attacked and threatened.
 
Wars are won with strategy.
Wars are won with unity.
Wars are won with courage.
Wars are won when the ones being attacked realize they have the power.
Wars are actually won, when the love for what you believe in is stronger than the fear you are facing. 
 
The enemy of fear, doubt, racism, scepticism, illusion, delusion, confusion, premature death, segregation, ignorance, etc., will not win.~ Lucinda Cross
 
How can we place these issues that are on the “agenda to be addressed” in the “program to be solved” to truly make some changes in the communities in which we work, live and serve?
 
I want you to click here and read this article that was so well written and on point. 
 
Master Coach,
 
Lucinda Cross
P.S. Thinking I may need to make some changes with #Activate2K16 because there is something bigger that needs to be addressed.

TRANSFORMING STEREOTYPES OF SISTERHOOD

Sisterhood is a reward.

The sister relationship, above all other relationships, is the greatest of all.
I believe sisterhood requires more energy than parenting and more work than a marriage.

Sisterhood is a bond often threatened and is threatening all in the same breath.

When women get married, a union is formed.
When women have a family, a nation is built.
When women step into their purpose and empire is created.
But, when women get together the world changes.

Sisterhood, in my opinion, is not something that can be defined. It is an experience that must be had.

There was a time when I might have attempted to understand the term “sister” or “sisterhood” by looking outside myself for a definition. Today, however, as I am perhaps wiser and certainly more confident, I choose to rely on my own personal experience and observation. Although I don’t have a sister by blood, I am well aware of the uniqueness of this relationship and the value it holds for me.

I had the pleasure of interviewing four ladies that I have been watching on Instagram for quite some time, and their movements are astounding. I call these four ladies “The Elements.” They each bring something valuable to the society that they live, work and serve.

Their bond doesn’t come from superficial commonalities, but a shared understanding of each other’s experience and contribution to the world. Within this understanding, any differences can be embraced.
