The Book Series

While some people are born with an inherent entrepreneurial knack, many successful entrepreneurs channel their business savvy through the advice and experience of others. Aspiring business owners can hone their skills with the help of “The Entrepreneur Within You.” This book is a collection of both inspirational and practical business advice from designer and marketer, Julie Holloway.

In addition to Holloway’s tips as a seasoned professional, there are a number of other contributing authors who each pen a chapter on a variety of business topics as well as personal reflection regarding the road to entrepreneurial success in this inspirational business anthology. TEW Volume 3 was published August, 2015 and TEW Volume 4 (The Creative Edition) will be released in June, 2017.

Our vision as a national collection of well-regarded entrepreneurs who are trendsetters, visionaries and who are passionately pursuing their dreams. Our desire is to empower, equip and inspire others to do the same while sharing our stories and experiences.  Grab a copy of #TEW today in our shop or on Amazon.com!

TEW V4.0 {foreword} written by Chicago artist, Craig A. Anderson

TEW V4.0 {foreword} written by Chicago artist, Craig A. Anderson

Mr. Anderson, my high-school art teacher taught us the ‘business of art’ – I will never forget it! I am so honored that he has written the forward for The Entrepreneur Within You volume 4 – the “creative” edition! (Release, June 2017) — JMH (Julie M. Holloway, TEW founder/author/curator)

Here is his statement of work:

I BELIEVE IN PERCEPTUAL PROCESS. A PROCESS THAT IS AN ON-GOING, SIMULTANEOUS, MULTI-LAYERED, MULTIDIMENSIONAL, EVER-CHANGING, ATTEMPT AT NORMALITY. THIS EXISTENTIAL-PHENOMENOLOGICAL AESTHETIC BALANCES A LINEAR-LATERAL APPROACH TO THINKING; A SUBJECTIVE DISCOVERY OF THE COMMONPLACE, THE ORDINARY, THE OBVIOUSNESS OF EXISTING; AND THE SIMPLE EXPRESSION OF TRUTH BY OVERLAPPING MARKS TO CREATE A SPACE ON A FLAT SURFACE. BY OVERLAPPING, A “PUSH-PULL” EFFECT IS CREATED. A POINT OF DEPARTURE, RATHER THAN A CONCLUSION. THIS INVITES PERCEPTUAL PARTICIPATION. THE PROCESS OF PERCEPTUAL “DIALECTICAL MATERIALISM” IS THE ESSENCE OF “NOWNESS” OR THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF TRUTH. I BELIEVE AND SUBSCRIBE TO GOTTLIEB & ROTHKO’S TENET, “WE FAVOR THE SIMPLE EXPRESSION OF COMPLEX THOUGHT.”

– Craig A. Anderson

6 Surefire Ways to Use Social Media to Grow Your Business

6 Surefire Ways to Use Social Media to Grow Your Business

Social media is a powerful marketing tool for entrepreneurs, bloggers, business owners, and self-published authors. Popular sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram have changed the way we market to our customers, by allowing businesses to reach them directly.

When it comes to growing your business using social media, there are some best practices. Here we share a few ways to use social media to grow your business in the African American community.

1. Be consistent

This is our number one tip for a reason! Your blog posts should be well-thought-out and scheduled to keep an active blog, well—active. Your social media should also be scheduled to ensure you are posting often. Sticking to your plan and being consistent will go a long way to making your brand look professional.

2. Tailor content to a specific social platform

Managing several social platforms for one brand, it’s important that you give each site its own personality. Although you can share the same blog on various platforms, you should format your posts to the site you’re posting on.

For example, you shouldn’t use hashtags on LinkedIn, but you should on Twitter and Instagram.

3. Push the most on the networks that you get the most engagement on

If you see one social network is getting more attention than your other social networks, then put the most time into growing that network. Some networks are going to work better than others for your brand, and it’s important you go where your audience is.

4. Write good content

The best way to get traffic to your website is to write engaging content that your audience can relate to. It’s better to have one potential customer than one hundred followers who aren’t interested in what you have to offer.

5. Balance your posting between business and fun

It’s important to mix both business and fun social posts into your marketing plan. Although the fun posts may attract more people and get more likes, the business posts will attract potential customers. Having a balance of each will keep your brand fun and informative.

6. Celebrate events and culture

A good way to engage African Americans is by posting about African American events and culture. You could host a giveaway or a contest pertaining to the event to push engagement. A few upcoming events you should keep in mind:

  • African American History Month: February 2017
  • African American Day Parade: September 17, 2017
  • Kwanzaa: December 26, 2017
