Gerald is on to something with creating this podcast! This podcast will be delivering a great source of knowledge for anyone looking to support or branch into their own.
As a white, Arkansas Republican, who happened to be cutting hay while listening, I couldn't help but think that I wasn't exactly the audience that Mr. Jones was trying to reach.
However, as a white, Arkansas Republican, who happens to care about view points that come from other segments of society, I found BuyBlack to be extremely intriguing. The idea of powernomics isn't exactly new, but I love the way in which Mr. Jones is seeking to bring its usage into the modern market. To employ a buzzword that is often overused, the synergy that he is looking to birth from a simple podcast is perhaps optimistic, but entirely realistic with the right vehicle. Mr. Jones may have created that vehicle. I look forward to where it goes from here.
This episode with Stef Grant is AWESOME!! He is not only informative and inspiring, but hiis enthusiam is off the charts! Thanks to Gerald Jones for producing this program. You are definitely on to something. Keep up the good work.
