New Author & Seasoned Businesswoman Simone Kelly Releases her book, Jack of All Trades, Master of None?

The event will take place at 347 Sixth Ave., New York, NY 10014, North Fork Bank on Thursday, June 9th from 7 PM - 9:30 PM.

New York, NY - May 26, 2005. It’s finally here! Simone Kelly, owner and founder of GOTS TO HAVE IT, Marketing and the infamous GIVE ‘N TAKE Network has just released her highly anticipated business guide for the up-and-coming professional. In her new book, "Jack of All Trades Master of None?" Kelly poses challenging questions like: "How many times have you started some fabulous project and then a better idea comes along? How many of you have a friend who is an accountant, hairdresser, web designer, and a massage therapist all wrapped into one?"

Kelly does not criticize the Jack; she was once a fellow Jack herself. However, it was not until she focused on her strengths and unique skill sets that she finally uncovered her true passion—“helping people with their businesses.” Says Kelly, “I love getting others to focus. I get a kick out of encouraging people to take a step back, set realistic goals, and come up with a plan to reach those goals."

Now Kelly is here to help you find your true calling. "Jack of All Trades Master of None?" is designed to help Jacks all over the world fine tune their skills to master one trade. This is not a self-help book; it’s a book of definitive answers. This unique book will challenge and show readers how to channel their many talents and develop a strategy to help them reach their goals.

Kelly does not dictate what is right or wrong. Instead, she incorporates practical exercises to encourage working professionals and entrepreneurs to figure out what is best for them. Kelly also includes basic business tips (marketing, budgeting, customer service, etc.), as well as advice from several respected advisors who helped her along the way.

While Kelly's past successes and track record speak for itself, the support the writer has received is a true testimony to her future accomplishments. Authoring a syndicated monthly newsletter in media outlets around the country, the business dynamo has already secured media partnerships with Harlem World Magazine, Black Star News, and Crème Magazine, to name a few. Furthermore, her "Jack of All Trades Master of None?" project is backed by financial powerhouses North Fork Bank, AXA Advisors, and Wachovia Bank.

Simone Kelly’s new book is a refreshing, self-reflective journey that guides the professional toward his/her calling to attain true happiness and long-lasting success.

Kelly’s book release party, which is free and open to the public, will provide an opportunity for guests to enjoy an exclusive preview of her new book.

History of Harlem Book Fair of Long Island

History of Harlem Book Fair on Long Island - The original Harlem Book Fair was established in 1998, by Max Rodriguez, publisher of QBR the Black Book Review. It has become a major annual event in Harlem, New York City. Over the years other venues have been established in cities across the country. Working closely with Mr. Rodriguez, AAGS established Long Island as an additional venue, in a joint venture with the Long Island Partnership for Community Education, in 2003. It was a concerted effort to promote community education, literary arts and literacy. A well-attended Authors Reception gave local residents an opportunity to meet and greet the authors who came from as far away as California. A balloon -sculptor who told stories and a clown who painted the children's faces captured the attention of the young people. All this and panel discussions featuring a popular radio personality and a host of noted authors made the debut of the Harlem Book Fair on Long Island a great success. All of this would not have been possible without our primary supporters: support of Verizon and Astoria Federal Savings. In 2004, AAGS and QBR joined forces again and hosted the second annual Harlem Book Fair on Long Island. The activities were enhanced by a lecture on the thursday evening prior to the actual book fair. The Authors Reception was again held on friday evening and a Writer's Workshop was held on saturday morning. During the fair, a Children's Pavilion was set up where the youth participated in a read-in. Authors of children's books and the balloon-sculptor told stories; and the clown painted faces. Panel discussions, poetry readings and special guest appearances rounded out another successful event. This time, the person who traveled the furthest to be there came from Australia. Pictures being so highly valued over words for depicting situations, we invite you to check out the 2003 and 2004 events by logging on to www.aagsinc.com and clicking on Harlem Book Fair of Long Island. We are looking forward to even greater success in September 2005. Log on to www.aagsinc.com for updates on the Harlem Book Fair of Long Island.

Networking for Success

Networking for Success

Networking is essential to the success of any organization/business, which hopes to grow to their full potential. Networking broken down to its core element is the sharing of various areas in which we have developed throughout the course of our lives. In order to be an effective net worker, the individual ego must learn that there is a bigger picture at work. As the saying goes, "No one is as smart as all of us", this highlights the importance of group cohesion and synergy.

Master net workers never underestimate the value of a single human contact. Each individual very easily has the capacity to influence well over 250 people. Some individuals achieve super networking status and effect local communities and countries. In networking, value is not determined by sheer numbers, but by the number of valuable and meaningful contacts established. One rule of thumb, I try to follow is to give more in use value than what I take.

The idea of making a contribution is one of networking noblest ideas. It is said that Jesus was essentially a net worker who had twelve disciples and impacted the world. Are you making your impact on the world through your networking? A good networker develops all of their talents and abilities to their fullest potential. As you enhance your human characteristics, more people will want to know you. The old saying, "It is not what you know, it is who you know". The new saying is who want's to know you.

As you become all you are capable of becoming, the people, places, and things that you need for your survival and prosperity will be attracted to you. A good place to start for a future super net worker is to develop an intense desire to become more skillful at networking. One of the premiere net workers in the country is George Fraser, the author of "Networking for Success" and "Success Runs in our Race".

In his book he gives four basic reasons for networking:

1. We network for information

2. We network for influence

3. We network for resources

4. We network for the good that we can do together

In George Fraser's four reasons, we find a plan of action. If we give information, build influence, share resources, and do good together our success as net workers is guaranteed.

I have tried to be a successful for much of my life and I hope the information I just networked has had a positive impact on the networking community. Net working implies that we must work to increase our net. In God's speed we can and must make a difference.

Do you desire to be a successful net worker? If you do, then you can. Desire is the starting point of all achievement. When we have an intense desire, we are working with one of nature's greatest elements. Nothing from nothing leaves nothing! We are blessed to start our path toward successful net working with the secret of the ages desire! Desire! Desire! Let Do it!

The Boss is DEAD! By Simone Kelly

The Boss is DEAD! By Simone Kelly

Some of us are born into families with "it", some of us are just driven over the edge to "it", and some of us crave "it", but just haven’t figured out how to attain "it." That "it" is an Entrepreneurial Spirit that is a powerful force that can be the key to your success, and yes…sometimes even failure.

What I’ve discovered in my many encounters with entrepreneurs…including myself, is that many of us were just sick and tired of working for someone else. We were fed up with putting in all the hours and in many cases not feeling appreciated. We were frustrated with helping the ‘next guy’ get richer, while we are still struggling to support our families. Yup…it’s that frustration that is the driving force for many of us who yearn for freedom to spread our wings. We want to call the shots; we want to take pride in our very own creations and accomplishments. And, oh yeah, when you do it right, being an entrepreneur can be an ego booster too…it just makes you want to shout from the mountain tops… "I DID IT! I FINALLY DID IT!!!!!" No mountain tops near by? The roof top of a building will do as well. Just came down from my roof this morning. LOL

So, now the big question for 2005 is…Do you have what it takes? Yeah, we know you want the glory, but do you have the guts? I just want you to be honest with yourself before you step into this world of blood, sweat, tears and of course… freedom, happiness, and your own money, money that YOU made. Yes, it’s hard work and lots of it, but at the end of the day it’s worth it.

The Power of Three
Are you ready to combine all of your skills that you have and build up ones that you’re lacking? Being a self-bosser, I’ve most recently discovered you have to take on three personalities…I think Michael E. Gerber, author of The E-Myth Revisited best describes these three personalities as the entrepreneur, the technician, and the manager.

So, who are these guys? And can they all just get along?
1. Entrepreneur: The entrepreneur seeks opportunities in almost everything. He is the visionary, the dreamer, the creative one and that relentless go-getter. He is the risk taker that dwells within us. He knows how to promote the heck out of his product and service and get people to rally behind his vision!
2. Manager: The manager keeps everything in order. He dots the I’s and crosses the T’s. Without him, there would be no planning…quite frankly there would be no order whatsoever.
3. Technician: They develop the product or service. The technician loves to roll up his sleeves and get the job done. No time for dreaming or planning. They just want to get to work and crank out the finished product!

Now, when you look at these three roles you may notice very different principles they all live by…which is why being a ‘multiple personality’ self-bosser can present a problem for many of us.
Do you notice which of these three stand out in you? The majority of us usually all start off as a technician, working and developing something…whether it’s writing computer programs or being the head chef at a restaurant. Most likely it’s something we are doing for someone else…a boss.

The first step to building up your self-bossing muscles is to work on beefing up the areas in where you lack…if not all of these traits will conflict with each other, even if they all want the same end result of success. Creating a balance is key.

Michael Gerber says, "It’s the work you’re not doing, the strategic work, the entrepreneurial work, that will lead your business forward, which will give you the life you’ve not yet known…Can you see that as long as you view your business from the technician’s perspective, you are doomed…"

"Don’t you see, if your business depends on you "the technician" you don’t own a business...you own a job and it’s the worst job in the world because you are working like a lunatic!"

Wow…that Michael is deep, huh? He hit it right on the nose! I mean, after reading this book, I too realized that I was doing things wrong. Even though I was working for myself, I had a job, I became that "evil boss" that works you to the bone. My inner entrepreneur and manager selves became stifled, because the technician in me wanted to work, work, work…live in the present and not plan or have a bigger vision. I was working in the NOW and not thinking about TOMORROW enough.
I challenge you all to take a look at what skills you possess out of this powerful group of THREE. It’s very rare that you can have them all work together at the same capacity, but you can work on creating a balance…without having an internal war amongst the three! You can also work on building a team of others who possess the skills that you don't have.

Key Strengths of an Entrepreneur:
Figure out what qualities you already know are working for you and what you need to focus on developing:
-Face your Fears: Stepping out of your comfort zone is one of the hardest things to do. Tackling something new can be challenging, but only if you let your fear take control…Learn how to face your fears by taking baby steps.
- Self Starter: Now that the boss is dead, it’s up to you to develop projects, organize your time, and follow through on details.
- Decision making: You will be required to make decisions constantly. Often times your decisions will require you to be quick while under pressure and without the time to research and/or ask others their opinions.
- Organization and planning: Research shows that many businesses fail because of poor planning. Good organization of your financials, inventory, schedules, team, and production can help you to avoid many pitfalls. Time management is also a trait often neglected, but it can help to make you or break you.
-Motivation: Running your own company can wear anyone down…you can easily get burned out, because of the heavy burden you hold on your shoulders. You’ll need strong motivation to make the business succeed and survive through the tough times.
- Dealing with different personalities: Working relationships are going to be one of the foundations to your growth. You’ll have to be able to deal with customers, vendors, staff, bankers, accountants, lawyers, and a number of other consultants. And let me tell you, not all of these experiences are going to be pleasant! Patience is going to be the major strength you’ll need to deal with others who are difficult.
-Creating…Dreaming…Doing..: Having a strong vision in what you want is so important. Taking time to fantasize about your company’s future is something I encourage you all to do. Don’t just dream it...write it down and look at it every day. Take the steps to make that dream come true by breaking it up into smaller steps. Always work with the end in mind!

It’s a new year…and time to discover that power of three. And yes, the boss can finally be buried!

Publicity Campaign Stategies for Small Businesses Wins the War

Publicity Campaign Stategies for Small Businesses Wins the War
by Phil Andrews

Publicity Campaign for Small Businesses have the ability to win the war for Small Businesses over a period of time. Brand awareness takes time and specific strategies for any small business to reap its benefits.

Publicity campaigns should be based of specific goals of each particular business. Every business should map out a well designed plan to take advantage of newsworthy items that appear in their business on a regular basis.

The problem arises with most small businesses is that they are so consumed with many of the day to day activities that public relations campaigns get put on the back burner. Publicity is one area where most small business get can more bang for their buck. Where else can a business get more for their buck in exchange for a little time invested, and creativity.

Some years ago I sent an article to a magazine by the name of Shoptalk Magazine, and they featured a story about the Haircut Hut Barbershop Franchise in which I ran for a period of ten years. The cost of the three page story was a typed letter, envelope and stamp. The magazine space in which the article appeared was valued well over three thousand dollars.

Some areas in which publicity is overlooked in small businessses is anniversaries, addittion of key employees, renovation, new web site, new location, new product line, strategic alliances, partnerships, etc.

Top of the mind awareness for small businesses must be worked for in a systematic matter. The best way to accomplish such a huge task is to attack your campaign by developing a systematic public relations campaign around specific things that occur in your business. Look how McDonalds capitalized on the number of hamburgers sold. They leveraged the number of sales into one of the biggest publicity campaigns. Small businesses can also leverage newsworthy events that happen in their business on a regular basis.

The art of the big deal should be a business owners primary way of thinking. If you do not make a big deal out of the accomplishmenst of your business no one els will think second about it, matter of fact no one will no about your great news.

Newspapers need news. We live in an information society, and if newspapers can get a great story for free most newspapers will cover your story if it fits their need for specific content.

The greatest thing about publicity is that it is just the beginning when your article first appears in a publication. Your featured article can now be copied and sent to friends, you can use it in a press kit or put it on your website, or event use it in our online newsletters. Publicity is a door opener and if used correctly it can open many more doors and get you many more features.

The hardest thing about a publicity campaign is to get it rolling, it has a snowball effect once you get started.

One added benefit, people tend to support the product and services in which they are familiar with on a regular basis. Both large and small companies benefit from publicity. There is no such thing as any company being to well known.

Queens, New York - Queens Book Fair 2005 featured in Newsday

Queens, New York - Queens Book Fair 2005 featured in Newsday article tittled "This book fair's for the self-published"
Queens, New York - Queens Book Fair April 30, 2005 featured in Newsday, May 3, 2005, article tittled "This book fair's for the self-published" New York City Edition Neigborhoods section pg. A52. Self-pubublished authors from around the country flocked the 2005 Queens Book Fair, along with with book lovers around the tri-state area. Queens Borough President Helen Marshall proclaimed the month of April as Book Month in Queens.
The Queens Book Fair presented a Power Networking Breakfast prior to the opening of the Queens Book Fair to "Connect the Dots" between Corporate, goverment, Small Businesses and the literary world.
The fair has generated local buzz for emphasizing the growing phenomenon of self-published African-American authors. The writers have seized mainstream publishers' attention by independently printing small quantities of their work and controlling all of its creative and financial aspects.
The authors' success hinges on marketing strategies as diverse as door-to-door sales, street vending and arranging book signings at popular restaurants or nightclubs. But before this year, only Harlem had established an annual book fair where writers are exposed to thousands of readers in one setting.
The Queens Book Fair attracted hundreds of people to Jamaica Market, and Piper and Rogers were counting on the event to introduce some writers to a bigger audience than they've ever enjoyed.
"It was packed," Rogers said. "And I was shocked. It was rainy and we didn't think people would show up. But they still came out."
To some degree, the women are all about taking chances. They started their book business almost by accident a decade ago, while selling gift baskets and floral arrangements at the St. Nicholas of Tolentine Flea Market in Jamaica.
C & B Books Distribution began bringing used books from their own collections to sell at the market, selling out each week. A frequent customer soon asked if the pair could get their hands on books by other African-American authors.
"She asked how soon we could get them, and I said we'd have them for her the next Saturday," Rogers said. "And I thought, 'I don't know how I'm going to get these, but I'm going to find out.'"
Rogers, 44, not only supplied the requested books, but soon found herself fielding requests for work by other black writers. Within weeks, she and Piper were visiting distributor warehouses that stacked dozens of titles from tiny imprints around the country.
By 2001, the women sensed a revolution stirring in the African-American literary community. Sister Souljah's 1999 cautionary coming-of age novel "The Coldest Winter Ever" had reinvigorated an urban-literature market that had hibernated for decades, provoking a new generation of black writers to eschew the mythic glamour of drugs and violence.
Other genres took shape around the same time, including revenge melodramas, romance thrillers and inspirational memoirs about overcoming abuse, addiction and lives of crime.
"It's a whole industry booming within an industry," said Angela Wallace, whose self-published novel, "Secret Dramas," earned acclaim for its unique hybrid of soap opera and mob intrigue. "[Writers] are implementing their own imprints. As a result of that, they're bringing other black authors in under their umbrella. I think mainstream publishing is noticing that."
Brenda Piper and Carol Rogers established their own tiny umbrella on the Internet in 2002. In March 2002 Mr. Phil Andrews joined C & B Books as its Public Relations Director to strengthen C & B Books brand name recognition in the literary community. C&B Books Distribution eventually opened its first physical location at the Jamaica Market in October and introduced its newest location in a compact corner store in Flushing in January.
The partners built their stock through consignment deals with self-published authors, advising writers through labor-intensive processes such as mission statements, cover design, press releases and book signings.
While she tirelessly provides encouragement and advice, Piper, 53, insists that no book will sell without its author's own follow-through.
"They have to be willing to get out," she said. "They can't just drop their book at the store and expect the stores to sell their book. We support authors through C & B Books authors club which promotes self-published authors.
But the women treat the Queens Book Fair like a community service as much as they do a business endeavor.
The event, which offered seminars and workshops for published and unpublished writers alike, kicked off with a networking breakfast to help forge partnerships in New York's independent literary scene. Readers had the chance to meet and solicit advice from their favorite authors, as well.
"Harlem and Brooklyn, they already have their recognition - even the Bronx," Piper said. "Queens was very low-key, and it's just starting to blossom."
