New Jersey Author and Entrepreneur Makeba Green

Lisa Marie Latino brings Newark native Makeba Green, author of the book Successful Leaders of New Jersey: Volume I, into the #HipNJ studio to talk about her newest release Entrepreneurship, The Best Job In the World. Green is an entrepreneur and philanthropist – dedicating her photography business, OMG Photography, to fundraising for the purpose of student scholarships.

Green’s motivation behind the book is her passion for inspiring the next generation of leaders. By showing the accomplishments and failures of today’s most effective managers, Green thinks her advice will resonate with the young audience better than simply relaying typical biographies. She says that even prominent CEOs have moments of doubts and failure ranging from not wanting to complete simple tasks to failing at important assignments.

The issue is especially important to Green who sites the support she received from both of her parents as the impetus she needed to succeed. Growing up in an urban setting, she could see that not everyone had a system of encouragement to help them in times of need.

Some people that she covers in her book are Modia Butler, adviser to Senator Cory Booker; Ras Baraka, Mayor of Newark; and Donald Payne, Jr., Essex County Congressman, just to name a few.

Makeba adopts a positive view on life and touts the advice of Richard Douglas who said, “Without struggle there is no progress”. She likes this quote because she feels that you cannot truly know success until you have experienced some setbacks. Additionally, she is not afraid to pave her own path by “marching to the beat of her own drum”, as she puts it.

Makeba Green is truly an inspiration to youths who are otherwise intimidated by the possible failures that come along with striving for excellence. You can purchase Green’s book in paperback or Kindle edition. Order your copy today!

Mompreneurs Talk About Business Ownership With Maria Falzo for Mommy Monday

Maria Falzo talks with Mallika Malhotra in the #HipNJ studio about her new book The Brand Photography Playbook and some of the “Mompreneurs” she covers in its pages. Mallika helps business women distinguish their identity through images and bring their brands to life. The book outlines the process she utilizes to assist those struggling to find brand identity on this installment of #MommyMonday.

Jennifer Brosnick is a therapist, social worker and mom coach who works with mothers struggling with post-partum depression and anxiety. Jennifer uses a holistic approach to treating anxiety-associated symptoms of the women she handles. She finds many of her clients through the mid-wife practice she works with, guiding the mothers from the early stages of pregnancy and being there after the birthing process.

Betty Galvan of “My Friend Betty” is a digital marketing consultant and social media manager who works with small businesses in New Jersey – primarily those owned by women. Betty is skilled in developing digital marketing plans for business owners who either do not have the time or expertise to handle it themselves.

Maggie Zakhery is an independent consultant with “Beauty Counter”, a California based company, focused on educating users on the ingredients in their skincare products. Maggie is passionate about reducing exposure to the harsh chemicals present in most make-up and skin care routines that are a result of lax industry regulation.

Mallika and the “Mompreneurs” admirably manage to balance motherhood and business-ownership by being creative, allowing them the freedom to create their own schedules that accommodate both full-time responsibilities.
