The First ever Power Black Business Expo was held today inside The Lake Charles Civic Center and I want to be the first to say that the event was much needed for the city. The event was put on together by Southern Touch Entertainment and Investar Bank which is new to the area.

The event brought out so many local businesses and organizations and granted all of us the opportunity to meet so many others in the game. I look at it like a much needed family reunion and when I tell  you the family came out. It was all of that and more.

Today there was a great session which was done by Patrice Washington who is also known as The Money Maven and has been featured with The Steve Harvey Morning Show for over four years and so many other great shows. She really gave some valid points for any new business or even established businesses. It was a pleasure meeting her and I will tell you to listen to her podcast and so many other great things to come.
