Episode 104 of The People's Podcast welcomes our first international guest: Antoinette Newton-Acquah. You can call her Toni.
Toni is an exceptionally brilliant 25 year-old entrepreneur who has started a health & wellness company called Flowers & Moondust based out of her parents' home country -- Ghana. The story behind how she ended up back in Ghana -- she was born in Upstate New York and grew up outside of Philadelphia -- is as compelling as it gets
Toni and Jay talk about (Interview starts at around the 17:25 mark):
• Her childhood in the northeast
• Fixing the differences between Africans & African Americans
• How she persevered through a "dysfunctional" family
• How a small college in Maine changed her life
• Her foray into journalism
• How the loss of her mostly absent father led her back to Ghana
• Where "Flowers & Moondust" came from?
• How she has been able to cultivate business partnerships
• Her thoughts on the United States now that she sees it from Africa
Plus: Jay explains the sudden "name change" and we show love to a Detroit icon and extremely funny man: John Witherspoon.
