Additionally, there were several notable speakers who shared their insight and perspectives during the conference; Dr. Julianne Malveaux, Dr. Randal Pinkett, Dr. Ron Daniels, Roland Martin and Billionaire Michael Roberts of St. Louis, MO. Each of these individuals had a part in contributing to the success of the Power Networking Conference. Mr. Roberts is also the author of a book entitled “Action Has No Season” wherein he talks about his journey of establishing, growing and sustaining a success business enterprise representing a number of industries.
My hope is that some portion of what you read may rekindle a dormant business idea, an educational pursuit or ignite a desire to serve others. The late Dr. Benjamin Mays said “service is the price we pay to occupy our space on earth.” Therefore, let’s find a way to help ourselves by assisting one another in an effort to do better collectively.
