By Joycelyn Harrison Henson A few months ago I had a horrific experience at McDonald's. I 'd placed an order via the app and when I received my order it was all wrong. But instead of correcting the order, the manager insisted that it wasn't wrong and that I'd received exactly what I ordered. The experience started in the drive thru and culminated with she and I going back and forth in the lobby of the restaurant. I was ANGRY - highly offended at the implication that I would have to lie about a McDonald's order. Near the end of the altercation, the associate told me to get my "ass" out of the store. ?? Now up until that point, I was coloring within the lines, but I took that as permission to unleash - not just about my order but about all that was bothering me at that moment in time. I did not hold back and it was not pretty. I remember telling Babs that I lost it and I prayed there were no video cameras because folks shouldn't know I even have the capacity to get like that. So I had regrets. Fortunately, I have not seen myself on a Mulberry Fights social media page.

We voters have always saw competing candidates as winner and loser. The loser's hope for a political future was almost always destroyed. The voters lose a good candidate forever just because he or she came in second place. The community lose what could have been a great future leader.

By Lawrence A Robinson A niche market is the subset of the market on which a specific product is focused. The market niche defines as the product features aimed at satisfying specific market needs
What if we viewed the Central Florida Black community as a market niche? What if we decide that this is a segment of citizens that have been ignored, passed over, abused and can use some special attention? What if we developed products and services, then design specific sales and pricing structures just for them?

Lawrence A Robinson Tactics and strategies. Tactics and strategy are used interchangeably but they are very different. Tactics perform a single task that is designed to generate a certain type of outcome that contributes to a bigger picture goal. Strategy is a collection of tactics all working together cohesively to deliver that higher goal.
If you Google the term 'marketing strategies', then you will probably end up on a blog post that list tactics. You will see the likes of Google ads and Facebook ads and SEO and Content Marketing and E-mail Marketing. These are all individual tactics they are not strategies.
