In this episode my guest and I explore the dynamics of being a Caribbean multi-national, and how working in corporate America influences business, even in the Caribbean. We dived into all of this with Guyana-born businessman, Jay Warde, who resides in both St. Lucia and America. With years of experience in corporate America, he shares his greatest lessons in business.Jay believes that business is not for the faint of heart and it is like “war without guns,” and time management, being detail-oriented and believing in yourself are all important factors in business success.Jay encourages us to believe that our Caribbean culture and style is not below that of other nations, and we can no longer say that the Caribbean lacks opportunities, skill or even the right people for business success. Connect with Jay Warde - InstagramConnect with @carryonfriends - Twitter | Instagram | FacebookEnjoyed the show?  Please remember to leave a rating and review in Apple Podcasts.

In our latest episode, Kerry-Ann and Chris talk with Clive Williams and Mikelah Rose on friendships. Mr. Williams explains that in friendships you not only go through good and bad times, but you must also face them together. In addition to poor communication, misunderstandings and inconsideration, Mr. Williams pointed to the fact that friendships typically dissipate due to promises not kept and expectations not met.But, though challenges in friendships are often inevitable, reconciliation is usually possible.Through this discussion, the audience is encouraged not to take the word “friend” lightly, but rather to be intentional in building and nurturing lasting friendships.Connect with @carryonfriends - Twitter | Instagram | FacebookEnjoyed the show?  Please remember to leave a rating and review in Apple Podcasts. A Breadfruit Media Production: Twitter Support the show (http://glow.fm/carryonfriends)
In this episode we explore the Caribbean film industry and the challenges Caribbean filmmakers face in reaching their audience.We chatted with Jamaican-born, Rachel Osbourne, who is dedicated to helping Caribbean filmmakers reach their audience through her media platform JulieMango.TV.According to Rachel, the major issue the Caribbean film industry faces is not a lack of good films, but a poor distribution and marketing system for them. We also discussed the idea that the Caribbean audience is generally unaware of the availability of films from the region, which results in low viewership and the belief that the audience is not interested in Caribbean content. Win a free 3-month subscription to a Caribbean streaming service Connect with Rachel - Website | Twitter | TikTok | RachelConnect with @carryonfriends - Twitter | Instagram | FacebookEnjoyed the show?  Please remember to leave a rating and review in Apple Podcasts. A Breadfruit Media Production: Twitter Support the show (http://glow.fm/carryonfriends)
