Meet Jeff McCormick. With over twenty years of experience in building innovative companies in the healthcare, education, energy, IT, biotechnology, and environment industry (including the popular Boston Duck Tours), Jeff has proven himself to be a real jobs-creator.
Born in Upstate New York, Jeff was raised in a modest blue-collar family household–where the kitchen was both a play room & a study room. His family, who traces its roots back to Ireland, instilled in him the principles of hard work and sacrifice. It is because of these principles that his family was able to give back so much to Jeff and why he wishes to do the same in the public sector through his problem-solving skills and creativity.
In our interview, we discussed his plans for Massachusetts. When I asked him, “What is the first thing that the people of Massachusetts can expect from you; when you do become governor?” He said that he wanted a top-down analysis of all the state agencies to see where they are (and what areas needs improvement), and to help small business at every corner–which he says is where economic growth comes from.
What makes him unique is the fact that he is running as an Independent. Being an Independent, he says, allows him to not be tied down by special interests and to not be afraid of challenging the status quo.
Today, Jeff continues to lead in his Vice Chair position at Citi Center for Performing Arts and is a four-time Dana-Farber Marathoner. Jeff resides in Boston with his wife Christine and their three children.

Today I had the pleasure of having morning coffee with the Godfather of @urbusinessnetwork Marshall Sterman. He gave me great stories, advice, contacts, and tips on being a successful #entrepreneur. Thanks Marshall again for everything and I am also excited for the many promising opportunities that are stored for you in the near future. –Prince

As part of 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 politician, educator, entrepreneur, or lawyer. And on this special segment, I invited Cheryl Morrow, Editor in Chief of the San Diego Monitor News and Heir to the California Curl company, to share her personal insight as a woman entrepreneur and hair scientist.
Having more than twenty years of experience as a woman entrepreneur, she has successfully branded herself in hair consultation and journalism–two fields which she says are still dominated by men. Cheryl Morrow is not just a personal friend but a mentor, which she was kind enough to share, in my interview, one great piece of advice on being successful: To be an “Intra-preneur,” instead of an Entrepreneur.
In our interview, she explains how she credits all of her success–including her father, Dr Willie Morrow, the founder of Cold Wave Curl–from being an “Intra-preneur.” Being an “Intra-preneur” means the ability to be inside a nucleus that is already successful–doing away with the ego side of being an Entrepreneur. “When you are in the nucleus you can hone your skills in networking, marketing, etc. and build success with the network that you already have,” she says. [Very similar to what UR Business Network is doing today!]
Today Cheryl Morrow lives in San Diego, Ca, where she is working to launch a Hair Academy (to focus on Afro Curly hair) and a Black Hair Museum this Summer! These projects are an extension of her heir company, the California Curl company, where they develop new eco, bio, and safe beauty technology for the ethnic beauty industry–the only ethnic beauty company of its time.

“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
