Book: "Who Owns the Ice House? Eight Life Lessons From an Unlikely Entrepreneur by Gary G. Schoeniger and Clifton L. Taulbert 

https://www.amazon.com/House-Eight-Lessons-Unlikely-Entrepreneur/dp/0971305935

Overview:

In the late 1950s, Glen Allan, Mississippi, was a poor cotton community. For many, it was a time and place where opportunities were limited by social and legal constraints that were beyond their control. It was a time and place where few dared to dream.

Based on his own life experience, Pulitzer nominee Clifton Taulbert has teamed up with entrepreneur thought leader Gary Schoeniger to create a powerful and compelling story that captures the essence of an entrepreneurial mindset and the unlimited opportunities it can provide. Drawing on the entrepreneurial life lessons Taulbert learned from his Uncle Cleve, Who Owns the Ice house? chronicles Taulbert’s journey from life in the Mississippi Delta at the height of legal segregation to being recognized by Time magazine as "one of our nation’s most outstanding emerging entrepreneurs."

Who Owns The Ice House? reaches into the past to remind us of the timeless and universal principles that can empower anyone to succeed.

This thought provoking discussion will be facilitated by Lindsey Haaser Braciale, Founder & CEO of Advocations, and Jason Wolf with the Garretson Resolution Group

As a reminder, you don't have to read the book to attend! Most do not, and we always have a very engaging discussion!

During this roundtable we'll:
· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth

Note: We are looking for people to facilitate a book discussion for 2019, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month. Thanks!
