The Small Business Roundtable

"A Monthly Event Bringing Together
Entrepreneurs from across the Globe!"

The Small Business Roundtable is a 'power-packed', fully charged event of dynamic entrepreneurs from across the globe.

The monthly Small Business Roundtable offers an important educational opportunity to smaller businesses. The roundtable is free, but space is limited and registration is requested.

The topic of discussion changes monthly, allowing attendees to learn how to enhance their business and increase their success in a different way each month!

More than 200 million businesses in the United States generate a combined $3.5 trillion in sales and employ more than 100 million Americans. That's a lot of businesses working together to drive an enormous amount of economic growth, but there's even more potential to be tapped if entrepreneurs’ risk being more productive over being busy. Let's work together to find ways to help small business owners better navigate the road ahead.

The small business roundtable led by Rick Rhodes, Small Business advocate and owner/designer of RICKRHODES FASHION, Oron Harris-Small, business advocate and founder of CONS2DONS, Janelle Harris, global influencer and CEO of SheExist Magazine, and Phyllis Calloway, City of Fort Myers Assistant Director of Community Redevelopment Agency Foundation.

Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Audible.  For More Info Click Here

Author and U.S. Army chaplain James Darren Key highlights 40 lessons and stories about race, love, honor, and faith to inspire people during changing times in his new memoir A Long Way from Crenshaw: Lessons and Stories about Race, Love, Honor, and Faith for These Changing Times (published by WestBow Press).

With the purpose of being accessible to all, the author writes in a conversational style. Exploring how life can change, and not always positively, he demonstrates how the human spirit can overcome those circumstances.

Additionally, Key speaks candidly about growing up Black in California in the 1970s and 1980s. Wanting to empower others, the author examines his own weaknesses and fears.

Through this study, he hopes to help people:

• recognize failures and successes along their journey;
• approach race and diversity with sensitivity and courage;
• heal from an unhealthy relationship before starting a new one;
• face trials and controversy with unshakable faith.

You can order "A Long Way from Crenshaw" at Amazon and Barnes & Noble
