Episode Description

Kathryn interviews Author Kate Andersen Brower.Elizabeth Taylor was the biggest star of the 20th century. She was the first actor to successfully break the million-dollar mark when she negotiated her starring role in Cleopatra and she championed independent filmmaking with her Oscar-winning performance in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. She took on the AIDS epidemic when few would and she created an iconic business, all while facing tremendous loss and waging her own private battle with chronic pain and addiction. NY Times bestselling author Kate Andersen Brower takes readers through an epic journey into the world of the real Elizabeth Taylor, exploring her undeniable and enduring influence on pop culture and modern-day celebrity as we now know it. She is a CNN contributor, a former CBS News staffer and Fox News producer. She has written for the NY Times, Vanity Fair, and the Washington Post.Kathryn also interviews CEO and Strategist Neil Foote.The history of Black Americans is filled with a powerful list of examples of highly successful entrepreneurs, not all of whom are well known. Recent National Association of Black Journalist Hall of Fame inductee Neil Foote shares with us 10 Black entrepreneurs who sold their businesses to major U.S. corporations for sums ranging from tens of millions to billions of dollars. Among these profitable success stories are Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Richelle Dennis and Robert L. Johnson. With these kinds of numbers being thrown around, we have to wonder what aspiring entrepreneurs could learn from these legendary moguls. What are some of their common characteristics? Neil Foote is CEO of Foote Communications LLC, a public-relations, content management and multicultural marketing firm. He was formerly a business journalist for the Miami Herald and the Washington Post.
