Black in America: My Thoughts

By Nikkia “Kia” Ganey

Sunday night, along with thousands of people worldwide, I pulled up to my couch to watch part 4 of the CNN Black in America series.  For the past 4 years, CNN and Soledad O’Brien has been exploring different aspects of life in America as an African American. This Sunday they explored “The New Promise Land- Silicon Valley.” This series followed eight black entrepreneurs immersed in Silicon Valley’s startup scene as part of the NewMe Accelerator. Still, the high tech center of the United States is dominated by young males who are mostly white and Asian.

I was under the impression that the series would follow African American people who have changed their careers, moved to Silicon Valley and are now working in software, technology and computer industry…people like me. True, I do not live in Silicon Valley, but my entire career is based online. As a Google and MSN Paid Search Analyst I am in a Male and white dominated world. In my current position I am the only African American who works for the company.  Even with being a minority in my company and my field I truly enjoy it, but this is not the direction that I thought my career would take.

 As an African American student in high school I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life, but I knew I wanted to be successful. I remember getting my acceptance letter to Florida A & M University thinking “Oh crap…what am I going to do at this school for 4 years”.  The day of Freshman Orientation I decided on the spot I was going to go into journalism. I loved to write, I loved the news and I knew it was something that would get me to my ultimate goal of being successful. I graduated with a degree from FAMU and an impressive under graduate portfolio.

I immediately started applying for jobs and saw that journalism jobs were few and far between. Instead of letting the fear of living at home with my mother for the rest of my life, while I wait for my big break, I decided to broaden the scope of what I was looking for. I was offered a job as a copywriter for a marketing company in Daytona Beach Florida. The job was an eye opener, I started creating print pieces and online materials to promote different products. I wrote scripts for online commercials, copy for websites and even got to review and critique new websites. I made the decision to stay in online field just as the bottom fell out of the economy and I loss my job, but the change was the best decision I could have ever made. As the economy tanked, my career was still going strong and doors flung open. Fast forward 4 years and now my entire career is based online.

I am a paid search analyst by day, I produce an online radio show at night and I freelance as an online marketing consultant for non-profit and for-profit organizations. Of everything that I do, I love the radio show the most. I love that while I am producing I can interact with fans on various social networking platforms. I love my career and look forward to going to work every morning. I talk about what I do to my friends and family and I notice that their faces glaze over in boredom, even though I am bouncing off the walls describing the new products that Google is testing this week, the new Ad Center editor tool or new articles that have come out about new innovations being released to improve marketing a product online.  I understand that the online world seems boring and it’s not the first choice for African American’s coming out of high school, especially African American women, but the industry is shifting and the capabilities of technology are growing every second, meaning new career opportunities are opening up constantly.

I would have loved for the Black in America piece to show more African American’s like me who have transitioned into an online tech career and have moved to Silicon Valley and are now working for companies like Intuit, eBay, Salesforce and Google.  I would love to see more women like me who have transitioned into the tech world and are flourishing, but maybe next time…

Drivers In Marriage: The “Players” Intervention

By Miguel Lloyd

 Update: We are doubling back on this show. We had some technical difficulties a couple weeks back, but the audience wanted us to finish this show, so we will.

Guest will include Mr. Solutions and Elitia Mattox from WhenLoveWorks Coaching

Well last weeks show was one of the more heated, yet enlightening conversations that we have had in the history of Life Full Circle Radio. What started as a conversation about what are peoples drivers to marriage, turned into a lot of discussions of Kia’s love life. Well that wasn’t the intention, but what can you do when it is live radio.

All jokes aside, it was good radio because Kia’s situation is similar to many women’s lives. Well educated, gainfully employed, yet not feeling fulfilled with their personal lives. We did our part to try and bring some clarity to what it is going to take to move on to the next stage in the “career woman’s” life. With a little help from callers like Mr. Solutions, I am not sure how many steps we took forward or back (you’ve got to hear the show to know what I am talking about.) Nonetheless, it was a great show.

Well there is another side to the relationship dynamic…the men. What are the men’s culpability in what many perceived as too many failed relationships between men and women. To many women left without a man to call their own, while they believe that the men are just running through them like water because thats the nature of man. Well I’ve got news for you, most men are looking for the same thing you are looking for, commitment and stability. Unfortunately women are putting out the wrong bait, and as unfortunate men aren’t demanding more.

Well this week, we are going to focus on these men. We are going to have a “players” intervention. Ladies we are going to give you a little more insight into what men are TRULY looking for, and why it is too often not what you are presenting. I’m sure we’ll have some of the same fireworks we experienced last week.

Of course, as always, we will have our super producer, Nikkia Ganey with hot topics, Seshmi Robertson with Entertainment, Elton Gumbel with Sports and Alton Drew with the Politics365.com Politics segment. Join us this and every Wednesday night for the lively conversation by clicking HERE!
