On April 9th,  history was made in the city of Aurora Illinois.  Richard C. Irvin was sworn in as the 57th Mayor of Aurora and the first African American to hold that city's position. Growing up in low-income housing in the city, Irvin beat the odds and rose up to become Mayor of the city in which he grew up.  This is a great story of inspiration, dedication and the qualities that it takes to be a great leader.

Too many times businesses look at marketing as a last ditch effort to increase sales.  More often than not, businesses expect inbound traffic to websites to translate into sales and are often disappointed.  The digital marketing industry has made a lot of empty promises and business owners are hard pressed to understant digital marketing and how it can actually lead to revenue generation.

This week I had the pleasure of having a chat with a remarkable person, Nicki Anderson who started out as an entrepreneur and ended up as CEO of a top ranked Chamber of Commerce in the United States.  Naperville is constantly being ranked as one of the best places to live in the United States.  Their strong business community is where Nicki got her start as an entrepreneur and business owner.  She later sold her business but retirement could not keep a hold of her, and pretty soon, she was asked to head up one of the few 5 Star Chambers in the United States.  Listen to her inspiring story about entrepreneurship and the challenges she was able to overcome.  

You can read about the Naperville Chamber of Commerce at http://www.naperville.net.

The intro and outro music is from Joni Brovo and his new EP, Soft Life Vol. 1 which may be found here.
