How to Rise in a Down Economy – A special 3-part series
More Americans are living in poverty now than at any time since the federal government first began keeping track 51 years ago, according to new Census figures that dramatically illustrate the toll of the lingering recession. Never have so many Americans been classified as poor. About 4 million Americans fell into poverty last year, bringing the total ranks of the poor to nearly 44 million. And not since 1994 has the proportion of those living in poverty — one out of every seven people — been as high.

When I saw these statistics, it scared me, but almost instantly my fear turned to excitement when I heard Mellody Hobson of Ariel Capital being interviewed on the topic. In a nutshell, Mellody  said that the jobs just aren’t there and they aren’t coming back any time soon. Therefore, now more than ever, Americans are going to have to become more innovative and create their own opportunities. In that moment, this 3-part series was born.

I have hand-picked several experts who have unique levels of insight, expertise and passion in very distinct areas. They are all very well-respected in their industries and they work with people just like you and me everyday. I’ve learned from everyone of them. They all have my stamp of approval.

During these interviews you will hear a lot of non-traditional–even revolutionary ideas. Be open to them. Take notes.  The economy is forcing us to change the way we build wealth and do business. Don’t wait for a job, listen to these experts and create your own.

This 3-part series originally aired in September/October 2010  on WVON 1690 AM, “The Talk of Chicago.”

Part 1 –  Multiple Income Streams Expert Milana Leshinsky on  how to create a Multiple Income Stream Business

Milana Leshinsky

Milana Leshinsky had a zero chance of success. She came from a country where business didn’t exist, some of the most brilliant people lived in poverty, and the world’s best books could only be bought on the “black market.” In just a few short years–after   looking for ways to stay home with her two small children–she figured out how to create simple, money-making information products and turned her favorite topics into a million-dollar business from home. Starting her business with just a hundred dollars in the bank, Milana is now considered one of the top experts in her field. Through her programs and events Milana has trained thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs on how to turn their passion into cash.

Listen to Milana’s interview on how to create a multiple streams of income business.

Part 2 – The Power of a Strong Personal Brand with Re-invention Strategist Marshawn Evans


In this kind of economy, knowing how to leverage your unique skills, talents and experience is an absolute MUST.  As an author, entrepreneur, former Ms. America contestant and as one of the stars of Donald Trump’s The Apprentice (season 4) Marshawn Evans has definitely mastered the art.

She joined me for part 2 in our series and offered some powerful tips on getting noticed, effective networking and landing the opportunity you REALLY want.  She’s got a big event coming up in November which will explore personal branding in more detail.  She’s calling it ME University and the live event will take place in Atlanta.    Need more details?  Check out her website  and listen to the interview below for some  excellent tips.

Part 3 –    The Secrets to a Powerful Resume + Companies that are hiring RIGHT NOW with Career Coach and Resume Expert Lauren Milligan

Career Coach and Resume Expert Lauren Milligan

Even though the climate is right to start your own business, the reality is, not everyone wants to do that.   So how do you make yourself stand out when you’re looking for a job?   It starts with an exceptional resume.

In the absence of a pre-existing relationship with potential employers, your resume has to speak for you.   It has to paint a picture of your leadership skills, your problem solving skills and your ability to deliver results.

In part three of our series, Lauren reveals the secrets to creating a resume that “pops” and increases your chances of getting hired.   She also names major corporations that are actually looking for people to hire RIGHT Now.

Lauren offered a special, limited-time  opportunity exclusively for my listeners.   If it’s not too late, you may still be able to take advantage of it!   Otherwise, check her out at ResuMayday.
