Every day I get intrigued that social media has quickly become the default form of media in Grenada and the Caribbean. When I speak to my friends about societal issues, they say this first thing to me. I didn’t see that on Facebook, or they may say, let me go to Facebook to see what people are saying. No longer are people saying, let me wait to watch the news or read it in the papers. Therefore, I became interested to see which social media platforms Grenadians are most active on.
Entrepreneurs are people who make a difference in the world by converting visions into reality and creating products and services used by the general population. There are many problems being faced in the Caribbean today that can be easily solved if a culture of entrepreneurship is to be developed and more entrepreneurs are created.

I woke up this morning reminiscing about a conversation I had with a friend. We were talking about how some of the young people we used to mentor back in the day were succumbing to lousy advice regarding professional development.

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.
