The “Less Talk…More Action” Business Empowerment Video Series
On September 6th, 2011 the Optimum Institute of Economic Empowerment, Inc. (“OIEE”) announces as a part of the “Less Talk…More Action” Economic Empowerment campaign a series of business empowerment videos in order to provide exposure to minority businesses as well as empower other future business owners.
Ryan Mack, President of OIEE, seeks to interview minority business owners at their place of business by asking them to provide one 30 second business tip for other future business owners. The 30 second tip along with all company information will comprise a 1 minute video that serves the purposes of providing exposure to minority businesses, empowering future minority business owners, and promote the “Less Talk…More Action” Economic Empowerment tour sponsored by the George Soros Foundation The Open Society Institute.
Ryan Mack stated, “It is time to develop a spirit of benevolence and empowerment within our community businesses. Each one teach one is not just a phrase we should all live by, but is one of the most powerful marketing tools for business owners. This tour has a goal of changing the mindset of the way we do business with each other and this series is all about empowerment of self through empowerment of others! Less talk…more action!”
Mr. Mack will conduct various interviews as he stops through the cities on the tour. Interested business owners should contact OIEE prior to each tour date to schedule an interview with Mr. Mack when he comes to their city. The cities and approximate times of the tour are the following:
New York (October 16th – 27th), Detroit (November 1st – 10th), New Orleans (January 2012), Jackson (February 2012), Baltimore (March 2012), Philadelphia (April 2012), Chicago (May 2012) and Milwaukee (May 2012).
Minority business owners across the country can participate as well by recording a 15 second video clip in their establishment with a business tip for the community. Email the video clip, along with a company bio, and all advertisement information to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
