It's been quite the week in the media, has it not? Bill Cosby was found guilty, which I'm sure you know, and Kanye was reported as saying foolishness along the lines of, "slavery was a choice."

*said no one ever* Or did we? I have been mulling over the topics of this most recent blog post for a few weeks now. I'm sure you have as much going on in my life. I have the words of Guy Hendrick's book The Big Leap on replay as I go about my days.... Continue Reading →
