“People will forget what you said and did, but never how you made them feel”
–Dr. Maya Angelou.
A good friend of mine from North Carolina once said this to me when I was having dark days in DC. At the time I thought it was his words of wisdom. But when I discovered that it was hers, I saw where the circle of caring began. Thank you Dr. Maya Angelou for passing the message along to my friend. I don’t know what where I would be if my friend didn’t pass along your message. I carry this every time I speak and interact with people. #thankyou #mayaangelou #love #life #caring #blackisbeautiful #mentor #dc #friends #compassion

WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS WEEK…
This week I’m back in the studio w/ UR Business Network to provide you current events, people, and discuss politics on my radio show, “Prince in The City.”
In addition to my radio show, I have a special segment called “Talk Tuesdays”–where I sit down and talk with an interesting individual who is either a educator, doctor, lawyer, politician or entrepreneur. And on this special segment, I will be interviewing Marshall Sterman–also better known as “The Godfather of the UR Business Network.” I will sit down with him and learn more about his grandeur of building successful companies and why he can’t stop talking about “crowdfunding” on his radio show “Way Off Wall Street”
If you have any questions that you would like Marshall Sterman to answer, send them to me via Twitter @princedjc and/or hashtag your questions as “#PrinceinTheCity.” Remember to keep your tweets appropriate!

This week’s Throwback Thursday edition: Paul Sullivan, The Taxi Cab Cowboy
I wrote this post to promote my good friend, Paul Sullivan, and his new CD album “A Long Time Comin”. I met the “Taxi Cab Cowboy,” on the night of my birthday (April 30th) last year, when I was looking for a ride home. Not only is he one of the kindest taxi cab drivers in Boston but the most original musicians I’ve heard.
His music is “real” and “bold”; the first words that came to my mind when I listened to his music on the way to my first my Zydeco event. His music is deeply rooted in country and blues which makes it easy for anyone to distinguish if his music is “real” or “watered-down.”
I am pleased to say now that Paul is finishing up his new CD and will have it published in 6-8 weeks, if not sooner.
