Jewelry is a billion-dollar industry that has been around for centuries. There are a variety of sectors and components in the jewelry business, but most people only think about it from a consumers perspective. We were fortunate enough to speak with Dion Smith the CEO of AJC Jewelry, which is the only black-owned jewelry manufacturing company in New York’s prestigious diamond district. Hip-Hop culture has championed jewelry for years and even created the phrase “bling bling,” that’s recognized in the dictionary. However, the celebration of jewelry has been as purchasers not as profiting businesses. Dion is the execption to that. In episode 67, Dion gave us an inside look into the extremely secretive world of the jewelry business. He explained exactly what jewelry manufacturing is, went over the value of gold and discussed if it should be used as an investment and he covered the do’s and don’ts of jewelry collecting, investing and purchasing. He also covered his journey from growing up in the South Bronx, to having a million-dollar jewelry business in the diamond district. #gold #jewelry EYL Website: https://www.earnyourleisure.com/ Guest IG: @ajcjewelry Brand Resumes: https://brandresumes.com/eyl/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app · Talk Money With Mesh Lakhani Podcast: On The Talk Money with Mesh Lakhani podcast, Mesh will follow paper trails, chat with experts, and break down complex ideas to bring clarity to the mystical financial phenomena behind your finances. https://open.spotify.com/show/20gI5HoX4J0zlsCgnjqWoP?si=w8xX2XpITSuysd_xGiGQiQ Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/earnyourleisure/support

In the early 2000s, Hpnotiq was one of the most popular liquor brands in the industry. Everyone wanted the mysterious blue bottle. The brand went from being unknown to moving a million cases a year at it’s peak, before the company was sold for $65 million. Another brand with a similar but even more impressive raise to prominence was Ciroc vodka. Ciroc was another unknown brand that went from moving 50,000 cases in 2007 to 2.6 milllion cases in 2014. The common denominator in both of these brands rise to dominance was their head of marketing and strategy, the legendary Nick Storm. To call Nick a marketing genius would be an understatement. He’s been a force in the music industry and nightlife scene for over 25 years. He has built relationships with some of the biggest names in the history of music and entertainment.

This week, our Hometown Heroes edition comes courtesy of the legendary city of Nashville, Tennessee. If you’re from Tennessee you have most likely heard of Slim and Husky’s. The new age pizza chain is the talk of the town in the culinary industry. With three locations in Tennessee, one in Atlanta and one more Atlanta location on the way, their reach is growing at a fast pace. The company is not your average pizza store. It was created by three childhood friends (Emanuel Reed, Derrick Moore, and Clinton Gray) who have grown into serial entrepreneurs. The pizzeria combines hip hop, style, art and community givebacks to make the pizza-buying experience different from their competition. Their pizza business is booming but the story goes deeper than that. The trio started their first business with a few thousand dollars in 2010, which was a green eco-friendly moving company. They sold that company a few years later for over a million dollars. After the sale, they used the proceeds to fund their next business which was Slim and Husky’s. In episode 61, they told their story in detail, they explained the process of selling a company, and broke down how they have created a scaleable business that is still community based. #Entrepreneur #Restauranteur Guest IG: @slimandhuskys EYL Website: www.earnyourleisure.com --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app · Talk Money With Mesh Lakhani Podcast: On The Talk Money with Mesh Lakhani podcast, Mesh will follow paper trails, chat with experts, and break down complex ideas to bring clarity to the mystical financial phenomena behind your finances. https://open.spotify.com/show/20gI5HoX4J0zlsCgnjqWoP?si=w8xX2XpITSuysd_xGiGQiQ Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/earnyourleisure/support

Our latest edition of Home Town Heroes comes courtesy of the turbulent city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At the age of 31 Brandon Rule is a business prodigy. He is a commercial real estate developer with an extremely impressive resume. He has developed $50 million in affordable housing projects in Milwaukee through his company Rule Enterprises and has an additional $180 million in projects currently in his development pipeline. A few weeks ago Brandon went viral on social media after news broke that the city of Madison, WI recommended that he be awarded a contract to develop a 30,000-square-foot grocery store, 150-unit apartment building and 345-space parking garage on a city-owned lot. There aren’t too many black commercial real estate developers, and they’re definitely aren’t a lot his age. One of the reasons why there are so few black developers is that there isn’t a lot of exposure given to successful individuals in the industry. Most people think about real estate from an investor’s perspective very few aspire to be big-time commercial developers. In episode 54 of @earnyourleisure Brandon broke down the ins and outs of commercial real estate development, he explained how affordable housing credits work, he talked about financing and he gave an in-depth look into his journey into becoming an icon in the industry.

Good morning, I came across your podcast and its great!!! i would like to offer some info for your audience. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department does not require a college degree to become a police officer (cap off at 99k)or a correctional officer (cap off at 71k). LVMPD still offers one of the best retirement packages around. They also offer several entry level positions for civilians that do not require a degree with very nice payscale. Free medical insurance, deferred comp offer, and company paid pension. HVAC and Electrician positions (40-50/hr) in Las Vegas also pay very very well, only requiring a training program and certification after a few months. Both are big business and offers the opportunity to start your own business. No State Tax, Low cost of living. Keep up the great work!!!

This was one of the best episodes because of the perspective Romeo Brown was able to provide. I felt that when he was talking about how he was humbled and had to get a job at Costco. I'm in a similar situation where it's very humbling this current point in life I'm going through. To hear the encouragement to keep moving forward is exactly what I need when I'm at work feeling depressed. I needed to hear this today. Thank y'all for what you do, I've been down since episode one and I have learned so much about finance it's unreal and y'all giving it away for free 99! Blessings on Blessings to y'all man forreal

This is your best episode yet. Derrick really broke down numbers and processes for people that may not have the knowledge on how things work.
