Men of Excellence

 Pittsburgh Courier 50 Men of Excellence Award

This year, I was fortunate enough to be honored by the Pittsburgh Courier as one of its 2010 50 Men of Excellence!  It was a pretty awesome event, held at the Omni William Penn hotel downtown, and I was great to be recognized with all of the other talented individuals!

I was also recognized as the Entrepreneur of the Year by the Pittsburgh chapter of the National Black MBA Association!  There I had an opportunity to meet at chat with CNN Education contributor Dr. Steve Perry.  Listening to him for a few minutes will make you want to immediately run out and start your own school!



The Cake Boss meets…the cake boss?

I was also lucky enough to meet famous entrepreneur and star of the hit reality show Cake Boss, Buddy Valastro when he stopped by KDKA to promote his new book, Cake Boss: Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia.

Both of these guys are great examples of what’s possible when you are really passionate about something and you pursue it with everything you’ve got….now go get to work!
