It's Official...

It's a official, y'all. I'm the African American Strategist for Iconoculture. Basically, my job is to observe trends within the African American community, so businesses can create strategies to better approach their African American clientele. It is the best of both worlds for me, as I get to write to my heart's content, while I scratch my business itch by studying the African American consumer. Remember what I said about disappointment creating new opportunities (re: NBC/NAACP Fellowship)? Well, here's proof.

I'm ready to go, and although my official start date is on September 5th, I'm already beginning to work.

Congrats to you! Sounds like an interesting position. How will you go about making your observations? (If that is something you can answer here.)

Congratulations! That job sounds very interesting. Wish you the best (and I'm looking forward to your upcoming books).

Congrats, Lawrence. One of the reasons I keep coming back to read you is your ability to mix a business sense with you writing. This sounds like a perfect job for you.

Hey all, thanks for the kudos!

Hey, Lawrence, congratulations. That's great. How did that opportunity come around for you? I must've missed a blog posting or something.
