AB Replay: The Last Taboo We’re STILL Not Talking About with Frank Cooper III

Podcast cover
Read more

There are many topics that are considered taboo -- sex, politics, and religion are the most notable. However, there is another topic that we're still not talking about: wealth! Many associate as a domain for only those with money, but that couldn't be further from the truth. On today's episode, Jeffrey speaks to Frank Cooper III, Chief Marketing Officer at BlackRock, and he's a believer that more people should experience financial well-being. With money being the #1 stressor, he believes people aren't being taught to talk about money and how to manage it, spend it, or save it.

They also spoke about Frank's career trajectory -- from DefJam,

Motown, PepsiCo, Buzzfeed, and now BlackRock. He talked about the nuggets he

took from each of these companies and how influential culture is to everything

from culture to branding. After all, culture eats strategy for lunch.

AB 320: Elevated Economics with Richard Steel

Podcast cover
Read more

Consumer habits have changed considerably over the years. No longer are they persuaded to purchase a product because they saw it on TV or saw an ad elsewhere. They make decisions with their pocketbooks and they also want the products they buy to reflect their values. 


On this episode of All Business, Jeffrey talks with Richard Steel, CEO of Parsec Ventures and author of the book, “Elevated Economics” addressing conscious consumerism. Richard tells us why this isn’t a trend, what companies are maximizing opportunities and capitalizing on them, and even leaves us all with some homework.

With all that’s going on in the U.S. today Jeffrey and Rolanda had an honest and respectful conversation into race relations.

For as bad as things are, Rolanda believes we will come out the other side of this unrest better adding “Crap makes gardens grow.” She also channeled a conversation she had with the late poet Maya Angelou who reminded us all to be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud.

Podcast cover

Just in time for Valentine's Day, we're replaying a timely conversation from the past year.

On Valentine’s Day of 2018, Steve Bustin’s phone rang. The woman on the other end said, “You don’t know me, but I thought I knew you.” Steve later found out scammers used his social media pictures on several online profiles, including dating sites and Facebook. This sent the happily married man on a journey he never expected to embark on -- straight into the path of dating scammers. In fact, the BBC featured his story on the program For Love or Money last year. During this interview, Steve lays out the scammers' strategies and how to protect yourself from the most common gullibility test.

While most businesses had to pivot due to COVID-19, today’s guest went in another direction. Eva Sadej is the founder of Medbar, a company that brings those coveted COVID tests to you.

This Friday we're replaying a discussion we had with Dr. Gleb Tsipursky back in October 2020 that's just as relevant today.

Leaders are often people who everyone else looks up to when it’s time to make decisions. However, being a leader doesn’t guarantee that we always have the right answers – or even answer. My guest today is on a mission to help leaders avoid the traps of costly judgment errors, or cognitive biases, in order to be a more strategic decision-maker. 

Dr. Gleb Tsipursky is a behavioral economist, cognitive neuroscientist, and author of “Never Go with Your Gut: How Pioneering Leaders Make the Best Decisions and Avoid Business Disasters.”
