One of my fondest memories growing up was attending the Rainbow City Festival in Grenville. My boys and I would walk around Grenville and stop by all the DJ’s on the street to “shake a leg”. If we were lucky we would get a “jam” from a girl, and we’d keep it moving. My favorite spot was behind Sheila George place in Grenville. I got the most “jam “there and the vibes were always nice.
Today I chat with my friend and fellow trailblazing entrepreneur Mr. Kenroy George. Kenroy is someone who I met first digitally and then in person once I went back from to Grenada. The first time we met in person, I could feel the passion in his voice and the drive he had as an individual. So it is of no surprise to me when he reached out to me to say he was launching an all natural skin care line in Grenada. Once we began talking about this initiative, I knew I had to get this story out there to show that innovation and entrepreneurship are alive in the Caribbean.
Yesterday I received news that someone I knew very well died, a young man admired by the community as was seen with the outpouring of support on Facebook. The news shocked me, I saw people sharing messages of love and support, and that got me thinking. There are some things our Caribbean men don’t hear often enough and while on the train today, I made a list of them and decided to share with you.
