If you don’t like the course of your trip, you can always change it…but the essence of the entrepreneur begins and ends with who they are human beings. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, a trip is defined as “a person or experience that is strange or entertaining and exciting.” We are a trip! Collectively we create a dynamic trip of experimentation, exploration, and entrepreneurial ecstasy for those that join us. So, every episode is an unexpected trip, and the entire series is an experience. So, in essence…we be trippin!

    Black Business Month with Joe Simmons

    Black Business Month with Joe Simmons

    August is Black Business Month!   
    So, X.T.C. sat down with Joseph “Joe” Simmons, CEO & Founder of the Center for Micro-Entrepreneurial Training (CMET) to take a trip in U.S. history to better understand the current changes in the trajectory of black businesses.    
    Beyond a moment of integration or equality, the current entrepreneurial movement is built on equity, access, and accountability.    
    Therefore, entrepreneurs need to take ownership of their destiny, collaborate intentionally, and build a foundation of business success that leads to generational wealth.    
    “We can’t count on other people to do it for us, we have got to do it for ourselves” stated Joe.   
    Check out this episode to learn more.
