Timeless Tuesdays at the Bond Lounge. A once a month special occasion (the first Tuesday of every month) where you can network with professionals and see the latest trends in fashion.
This month’s fashion look: Kinda Touma
Kinda Touma (Kin-dah Toh-ma) is not just a title but the name of the fashion designer who put all of these beautiful looks together. Kinda is a local fashion designer here in Boston, Ma, where she specializes in High End clothing for women who want to feel feminine but yet classy– and she started her journey into fashion, as a young girl in Aleppo, Syria, where she was designing women’s clothing with her Barbie Dolls.
Growing up in Syria, she says, was wonderful. And after she graduated from the University of Aleppo in Architecture, she flew all the way to Boston and attended The School of Fashion Design. Kinda’s first break began in 2010, where she put on a charity fashion show for ovarian cancer. It is charity events like these that got her foot into the door of fashion and won her fame among the locals in Boston.
Her biggest advice to fashion designers out there is to never give up. She says to never put an obstacle in your way and to keep going with your passion.
As of now, her upcoming plans is to put a hold on fashion shows, until September, so she can focus on new looks. However she will have sample sales in a month. As for Heloisa Fitzgerald, jewelry designer of this show, will showcase her jewelry again during the week of Feb 16th at the State Room in Boston. For more information, go to www.heloisafitzgerald.com

A special thank you, as always, to Gilda, manager of the Bond Lounge, for coordinating this networking event, and Joe Freeman, talent manager of Dynasty Models, for providing the models to showcase these designs.
On each and every show I don’t just provide you news in the City, but current events around the world–and how they impact you and the world around you. And on this show, I talk about the new war in Iraq and the emergence of a new terrorist threat, ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria)
On June 24th, 2014, the Western world witnessed a new face to terrorism; when terrorist group ISIS conquered a big chunk of northern Iraq. Through its sophistication in technology and social media, as well as its organization in human resources, ISIS was able to downsize the Al-Qaeda threat and put the new Post-Iraqi War government in disarray.
In this talk I did not only break down the new conflict in Iraq, (going back its to its original roots) but point out the complications. If the US and/or its allies were to intervene in Iraq, they could risk a political “blowback”–helping a Shia government that has been suppressing the Sunnis since 2009 (which the Sunnis have now called ISIS their savior).
What is important is the fact that this new threat is real and will affect national and international politics; if this crisis is not dealt with swiftly but most importantly diplomatically. The world cannot turn a blind eye on ISIS!
This radio show was produced in July 2014 by Lauren Culp and MJ, from the UR Business Network, whom also commented on this topic. On this show I also gave tribute to decease baseball Hall of Famer, Tony Gwynn.

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.
