Starting your own business, in my opinion, takes three things- a lot of heart, hard work, and money. In the world of the business man lies the business woman. These days, more and more women are starting their own businesses. That’s why I find it important to stop by and support some of my fellow business women. I think we as the female race put a lot of love in everything we do and it definitely, always comes from the heart. So when I heard about a friend starting her…

Dream Dispensary

Living on the Eastside of Eight Mile in Metro Detroit sure doesn’t look the same as it used to. Thinking back a few years ago it was looking pretty run down. Then something started happening, new businesses started opening new shops and cleaning up the area which led to people in the suburbs coming closer to the city to spend their money. Now what kind of business could do that you might ask? Well, since the laws on Medical Marijuana have changed, the Michigan Medical Marihuana Program has allowed these…

Rise to Power – JP ONE

JP ONE has made himself an integral part of Detroit’s music scene. Whether the conversation is about his consistent flow of new material or his controversial and straight forward attitude, he is always somewhere in the mix. Appearing to just fall from the sky almost five years ago, the then 27 year old took the same no nonsense approach that he had in the streets which led to him spending close to nine years in prison. The difference was noticed immediately. While most artists look for a way to get…

Fashion in the D

Fashion in the D

Unless you’ve just scaled the walls of some dark cave to recently rejoin the illuminated world, then you’ve heard the talk and felt the intoxicating buzz. The last few years have seen a seismic shift in the way we look at and consume fashion. As a symptom of social media overload, no longer is the fashion lover merely a passive consumer. The consumer is also the critic, the designer and the game changer in most cases. Before, fashion was an artistic commerce that trickled from the top down. Sure, designers…

Free the CBD

Tell me, what do you think about a plant that can treat illnesses and save lives, be made into almost any kind of material you can imagine that is bio degradable, and that can be reproduced about every three months? A plant that, under Federal Law, is illegal and if you get caught with it can ruin your life forever. What if someone you know was sick, in constant pain, or dying? In order to bring them a better quality of life or to save their life, would you risk…

The Dirt on Urban Farming in the ‘D’

Urban Farming

Detroit offers many opportunities as it pertains to urban farming. For anyone up for some adventure and hard work, the end reward can be a stable, secure, and unheard of return on investment in today’s volatile market. Let me explain: For starters, land in Detroit can be purchased at a starting price of $500 per lot, via www.BuildingDetroit.org. There is NO other city in America that offers land and homes that affordably. Of course, there is much rehab to be done on any property listed but that is to be…
