Photograph of Air Jordan sneakers for the "Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Cullture" exhibit taking place at the Brooklyn Museum from July 10th through October 12th 2015. Taking place this summer at the Brooklyn Museum you’ll see some an amazing collection of classic sneakers on display as part of the “Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture” exhibit that I’m proud to say that I’ve had a hand, or should I say a foot, in co-curating.

The exhibit will be on display at the Brooklyn Museum from July 10th through October 15th.

Boston Minority Business Expo 3/7

Photograph of flyer for business expo on 3/7.Do you live in Boston or in the surrounding area and want to learn about businesses owned and operated by minorities?

Check out Minority Business Expo taking place on March 7th from 12-5 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club, located at 15 Talbot Avenue, Dorchester, MA 02124.

And, rest assured that if you’re not a “Minority” (I’ve always disliked that word and the phrase “People of Color”.) you CAN attend the business expo.

Event Overview
The Minority Business Expo is created to increase opportunities for small businesses and entrepreneurs. It is also an opportunity to capture prospective clients and customers in a well facilitated environment. We provide the support and resources for small businesses and entrepreneurs, by being a platform for learning opportunities to stabilize and advance their success. The expo will have an array of businesses from the community and business support companies.

Guests will attend from all over the city and will range from professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs, event specialists, community organizations, local personalities, special guest honorees, friends, family, and many more.

Life is too short to NOT network and learn about businesses in our backyard.

MAJOR hat tip to Future Boston Alliance for the information.

Mass Realty recently featured the Boys & Girls Club and Worcester Youth Soccer League (WYSL) in their article about empowering youth in Worcester.

Keep Calm Worcester

Photograph of Turtle Boy Keep Calm Spring Is Coming.Photograph of Turtle Boy Keep Calm Spring Is Coming.Keep calm Worcester because despite winter storm Neptune dropping more snow in Massachusetts, we have to remain positive and focus on the future!

There are 33 days until spring!  Yes, you read that correctly.

That equates to 1 month and 5 days until it’s officially spring and then folks in Worcester can begin to complain about the warmer weather, the melting snow and their Uggs boots getting wet.

WorcesterIsMAjor-DeeWells-58-2Amidst all of the snow that Worcester has been hit with, I realize that I have to look at the positives and focus more on the blessings such as the mere fact that I was able to wake up and see my loved ones!

As I made my way from the West side of the City to the Vernon Hill area this morning, I saw a beautiful sunrise!
