NV Magazine "Everyone dreams, but few have vision." -Kyle Donovan (CEO of NVM Media Group)
NV Magazine is a successful, award winning magazine in its 16th year of production that caters to urban business professionals and entrepreneurs.

NV Magazine, the New Vision in Business, is a national, bi-monthly, business magazine for urban professionals, entrepreneurs and forward thinkers. NV magazine is more than a business magazine for urban professionals. It is an entity unto itself, a business/lifestyle magazine targeted to the business professional, entrepreneur and forward-thinker. It's an innovative resource for financial knowledge and power with a glimpse at the individuals putting that power and knowledge to work. NV is designed to embody the thoughts, vision and intellect of today's urban professional and create pathways of success for the people that strive to be like them. This generation will earn more in a lifetime than their fathers and mothers. This is the generation that is the heart and soul of American culture through music, dance, sports and all forms of entertainment, and now business. We know that urban America is the source of billions of dollars of this nation's revenue. We know that it is our mission to have urban Americans recognized for their ability to create rather than their ability to consume. These are the "NVisionaries" who are changing the world. NV is written for and by this generation.

This is a sad loss for the world. This young man, Nipsey Hussle, was known for his Grammy-nominated rap music, acknowledged for once living in the gang life and should truly be saluted for his commitment to entrepreneurship. He was continuing to escalate his hustle and had a willingness to share the lessons he was learning along the way. He was out to change his block and had even purchased a commercial plaza on West Slauson Ave. off of Crenshaw Blvd. where he used to once hustle and was sadly shot and killed today. He had spent millions of dollars to buy the whole strip mall with plans to transform it. It was home to The Marathon Store, which carried his clothing brand of the same name but there were plans to rebuild it to reflect changing times. He was constantly riding the waves of progress and was always focused on setting trends in business not following them. So he invested in cannabis, cryptocurrency, real estate and owned his music label, All Money In. He was also a partner in the STEM center and co-working space in Crenshaw, Vector90 . He was all in on buying back his 'hood. Read: "Inside Nipsey Hussle's Blueprint To Become A Real Estate Mogul," watch his 5-minute video explaining cryptocurrency that has received over 14 million views on YouTube, read about him in Billboard, Medium and Forbes to understand that he was a visionary. His Victory Lap was not just about his music it was about his life.

Kudos to Amos Winbush III ! When NV featured him he was running a tech company that he started with $250 and built it up to a point where it was valued at over $200M. Now he is embarking on a new vision that is currently available for download. Here it is in his own words.

"Ten years ago, I launched my first tech firm. I had a great idea and the drive to see it through. But what I could not articulate was how lonely, isolated and scared I felt. Throughout the years of not being connected to true community, I created a reality that was dark, ego feed and removed. It took years of personal discovery and release to climb out of that place. Today Forbes and I are announcing Forbes8. Forbes8 is a digital streaming network designed to build community around innovators and innovation. The days of building in isolation are in the past. As a network we are excited and honored to share your stories, of innovation, discovery and purpose. Bringing the entrepreneurial ecosystem to your finger tips is our mission!" #Forbes8

Making diversity fun and educational by activating the five senses is how Keni Thacker began his journey as a diversity advocate in 2006. He‘s worked at J. Walter Thompson (now Wunderman Thompson) New York for the past twelve years as senior event technology specialist, he proudly refers to his role as the “technology firefighter/security blanket” for both the national and international business operations, and began by collaborating with the human resources department to create a diversity and inclusion program. It was always his passion, rather a calling, that was never part of his job description. He is a Champion For Inclusion. Read about him in #NVissue107 #TheArtOfAuthenticity.
