Wealth Twins

Check out this: it’s never too late to be an entrepreneur. Big fans of the Wealth Twins

Are you letting your age stop you from starting a business? Do you dream of retiring from your current career and becoming an entrepreneur? Well, the good news is that your age can be a benefit to you no matter if you are in your early 20s, 40s, and 50s. There are different points in your life when it is easier to become an entrepreneur but age is not set in stone. If your dream is to create a start-up, run a franchise, or anything in between you can do it.

Starting a business can be a great way for mid-career professionals to retire from their current jobs. Most of the time, mid-career individuals are able to self-finance and lessen the financial burden when starting a business.

If you are just starting out of college your youth and ability to be flexible can contribute to your success.

Family life and financial stability play a large role in becoming a successful entrepreneur especially when you are starting a business.

If you don't want to jump into entrepreneurship full time, you can start your entrepreneurship through a side hustle. You can keep the stability of having a steady income at the same time testing if your business will fly.

Did you know that most tech startups are actually founded by more people above the age of 40?

Don't let your age stop you. If you have the dream in your heart of becoming an entrepreneur then the best time to start is the present.

Christian Viveros-Faune, Art Critic, talks about his book " Social Forms, a short history of political art"

In Social Forms: A Short History of Political Art, renowned critic, curator, and writer Christian Viveros-Fauné has picked fifty representative artworks—from Francisco de Goya's The Disasters of War (1810–20) to David Hammons' In the Hood (1993)—that give voice to some of modern art's strongest calls to political action. In accessible and witty entries on each piece, Viveros-Fauné paints a picture of the context in which each work was created, the artist's background and the historical impact of each contribution. Sometimes artists create projects that subvert existing power structures; sometimes they make artwork so powerful it challenges the very fabric of society. Whether it is Picasso's Guernica and its place at the 1937 World's Fair, or Jenny Holzer's Truisms (1977–79), which still stop us in our tracks, this book tells the story behind some of the most important and unexpected encounters between artworks and the real worlds they engage with. #christianviverosfaune #artcritic #artbook #politicalart #davidzwirnerbooks

"None of my patients ever killed themselves" - Dr. Mark Goulston, MD, expert in suicide prevention

This is why we are doing "The Face of America".

Here is the comment that was made following Dr. Mark Goulston's interview on #thefaceofamerica

"I can't like this video enough... I can't believe it doesn't have more views. I've watched it at least a dozen times and each time I hear something different. I especially love the seven words. I used them for the first time yesterday. My son seemed down when I picked him up from school. I go... what's up buddy? Nothing. Anything going on? Nope. Wanna talk about the thing that's not going on? Nope. Okay... I have a little game for you. I'm going to say seven words. Pick one. He picked five. I said okay let's start with one, pick the one you feel the most. He picks one and we had an entire conversation that wouldn't have otherwise happened. He immediately felt heard and understood. I can't thank you enough Dr Goulston and the work you've done and continue to do." -R.B.

Who Made The Potato Salad? is a sketch comedy show/cookout, written, directed, and starring only artists of color.

Let the holiday festivities begin with a second-year anniversary celebration of Who Made the Potato Salad? Hosted and created by comedian X Mayo (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Upright Citizens Brigade), the show has previously featured some of the hardest working POC artists in the industry, ranging from SNL, A Black Lady Sketch Show, The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Hulu, Upright Citizen Brigade, and MORE!

Like any Potato Salad event, the night will be filled with DRANK, COOKOUT BITES, and a whole lot of TWERKING! You'll definitely be bussin' a move with two of the dopest DJ's in the city: DJ Rubie Lee and Astro Raw.

WHY: Representation in comedy is a constant struggle for people of color. In honor of WMTPS hoping to inspire all marginalized groups to pursue their passions, even in industries where they don't see anyone like them, this event will connect people of color under one roof for a LIT night!

The Face of America Trailer

"Two years ago, in October 2017, I made the first interview for The Face of America series. A few days ago, we recorded our 100th episode. On this occasion, we decided to create a special trailer featuring some of the most powerful and inspiring interviews. Together, we explored the fault lines of U.S. politics, from #civilrights to #womensrights, and from #gunviolence to #lgbtq issues. I want to thank all and every one of our guests: they truly are #thefaceofamerica"
