Rockin’ to the Beat: Tips for Enjoying a Live Concert No doubt about it, mothers are the backbone of the family. Theirs is a difficult balance of wife, mother, daughter, and sibling to all the important people in their life. So it stands to reason that while we honor these women on Mother’s Day for all they do, one company is taking it a step further by celebrating these lovely ladies for an entire month. To that end, online retailer zulily is opting to recognize Mom throughout the entire month of May with special collections of fashions designed
for and inspired by moms. During the first week of the "By Moms, For Moms" promotion, which runs from April 10 through early May, the Seattle-based company will feature clothing collections created by moms who work at zulily."As a mother, I’m honored ? with the chance to share our favorite products to hopefully inspire not only customers, but potentially other moms looking for style inspiration from their peers," says Kate Aulabaugh, director of merchandising for home. The second and fourth weeks will include clothing and other products from companies founded by mom entrepreneurs, while the third week features collections curated by mom social-media gurus. n addition to sharing these great product finds, the company is also highlighting these women’s inspirational businesses and personal stories. They have experienced valuable lessons throughout their entrepreneurial journey, and are sharing what they learned with those who may be looking to follow their own dreams:* Lori, Jodi and Kari of Belly Bandit are revolutionizing today’s shapewear industry with their collection of maternity and postpregnancy essentials. "Making mistakes is all part of the process," says cofounder Lori Caden. "There will often be bumps in the road, but if it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you."* Hold Your Haunches was developed by two active moms who couldn’t find a pair of leggings that incorporated shapewear. Although neither had a background in fashion or business, they decided to develop their own line. "Always
Sitting Through a Movie in Comfort Americans love the movies. Whether it’s watching Tom Cruise hang from a building or a new rom-com, movies are a nice diversion from the daily grind (if only for a couple of hours), a place to stay cool on hot summer days, and usually provide pure, unadulterated enjoyment. To make the experience even more pleasant, theaters are now boasting reserved seating, fancier fare than your standard tub of popcorn and soda, and best of all, beer, wine and cocktails—all for a high-end price. The rise of “dine-in” theaters aims to put the traditional dinner-and-a-movie all in the same place, instead of rushing from one venue to another. 7
3 Way Ent, are definitely one Independent Record Label that are on the rise in Richmond, Virginia. Owner Trey Walker has outstanding leadership that exudes through each one of his Artists’ performances, their concerts, and just sportsmanship overall. Newly growing in the city, the hustle behind this organization sets
them apart from record labels that have been around many years before them. 3 Way Ent, is the apotome of hard work, grind, passion, and authenticity.
Back in January, they had a “Take Over Concert” at a new spot called Boogaloos Bar & Grill on Brookland Park Blvd. Talk of the Streetz was in the building to witness the impeccable flow of the event, and undeniable talent of each one of his Artist.. They showed off that night! In the room, there was nothing but love for one another, and plenty of support from outside guest and fellow artist, such as Big No and more. Talk of the Streetz thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and honestly cannot wait for the next event. We’ll be shouting thhhhhrrrrreeeeewaaaayyyy until then.!!

He’s the Talk of the Streetz! A native of Richmond Virginia, “Tootrill” is DJ from the Fulton Hill area known as the “3”. Its divine intervention on how he came into being the mogul DJ he is today. “DJ Tootrill” tells our interviewer that one day he woke up with a plan to use DJ’ing to better promote his company Ase Alumni entertainment.
Ase Alumni Ent., is an entertainment, marketing and artist management company. The initial plan was to use DJ’ing as a marketing strategy to increase the brand visibility of Ase Alumni Ent, so it can become respected enough to sign artist, and he is successfully attaining that goal thus far! He has and is currently DJ’ing all over the City of Richmond, throughout the DMV, and damn near all over the world. We asked, what makes you different from any other DJ?
“My energy makes me different from any other DJ on the planet. I eject my energy into the crowd, whether it’s one person or 100 people, they are forced to have my energy”. Out of all the DJ’s in the world, DJ Tootrill says his top three are: DJ
clue, DJ Belly and DJ Swerve Dinero- because they all provide an element that he studied which helped him become who he is today. DJ Tootrill gives back to the community in enormous ways, that in the past year has touch the hearts of families throughout Richmond VA.
His annual “Push 4 Peace” cookouts, benefits the children in community, and he is currently promoting the next cookout right now; due June 15th, 2019 at Powhattan Hut, located at Northampton. In addition to his successful endeavors in Ase Alumni Entertainment, DJ’ing at all of the dopest functions around, and marketing and managing his artist, Tootrill also has an online clothing store at www.TooDrip.com . He created this clothing line to provide a “lavish look for less” and the line is popping as we speak!
We asked, who is the most influential person in your life and why?
“The most influential person in my life was my Grandmother. Tootrill
He’s the Talk of the Streetz! Tootrill says “she showed me unconditional love and was passionate
in everything she did.” If you could work with any artist celebrity dead or alive, who would it be?
“It would be Nipsy Hustle, because of his point of view on turning back the hands of time to when black people supported each other and was all about the black community; helping each other with black businesses. Nipsy doesn’t just speak on it, he walks it” If money didn’t matter what would you be doing for the rest of your life? He jokingly said “I’d be a pornstar” then answered, “nah, I
would be an R&B singer” and he believed his sprit animal is a Black Panther. Tell us about the five-year bid you did, when you came home, then unfortunately went back after a little hiccup to do six months, how did that change your perspective on life?
“My Grandmother passed away when I started the last bid, and my brother was sentenced to 12 years in prison; I realized that the family was depending on me now, and I knew that I couldn’t make the same mistakes I did when I was young”. If you could go back into time and tell your younger self one thing, what would it be?
“To go harder in school. I would have taken education much more seriously.” If you could give advice to a young entrepreneur who was trying to do things similar to what you are doing, what would your advice be?
“I would tell him to educate his self on the craft because so many people go out here and be so excited to do things, but they don’t educate themselves on how to be successful in it first… I study day and night. I study other peoples moves in the past and currently, and I take strategies and turn them into my own. 15
He’s the Talk of the Streetz! It was an honor interviewing with one of the dopest DJ’s on the East Coast. We look forward to may more successors in this year to come. You can always expect DJ Tootrill to be at an event near you. He is also a partner in the RVA Awards Show and will be co-

"Always trust your instincts and don’t think you need a business background to be successful," say founders Erin Bickley and Jenny Greer. "It is important that you don’t let people tell you that you can’t do it. Prove to yourself that you can."* Industry maven Debbi O. Schulman created Planet
Motherhood, a maternity line featuring affordable, fashionable, and contemporary options. Once her daughter, Ariella Weitzman, joined the company, they worked to shift the brand into the online market. "It’s important to adapt your company to the changing times and cater to your customer’s needs," says Schulman. "Although it can be challenging, it can lead you to success.""There’s something really extraordinary and powerful about women supporting women, and we hope these specially curated collections will inspire women to do just that," says Lori Twomey, Chief Merchant, in a statement. "After all, our employee moms, mom entrepreneurs and social-influencer moms are just like you — wives, daughters, siblings and, above all, women just trying to balance it all.

“Real Talk for The Streetz”- Uncut & Raw (Offensive Dialog- Real Talk for those living the Street Life) A HUSLTER or DRUG DEALER is an “Investor” at heart that doesn’t’ quite know what to do with their hustling ability to “flip” a product or service in a quick and consistent manner- daily. Although this ability to “flip” is a great one to have, the Street Hustler instead uses it in a negative way. A HOE or GOLD DIGGER is an “Appraiser” & Accountants at heart that doesn’t quite know what to with their hustling ability to analyze and judge an individual or material, by its appearance and uses it for it’s worth & benefits in a negative way. With that being said, Let me rap with you about a project hitting the Streetz right now as you read... It’s called “Street Dreamz” It’s a project to support the community and a different type of way. Street Dreamz is raw and uncut. It is created for the hustlers out there on the block and women out here that are considered Hoe’s and gold diggers. It’s for the Streetz… Street Talk connects with you who have been called Drug Dealers and Hoes at the level you are in at this current time- with NO JUDGMENT. It provides Insight on ways to turn what you do negatively, into a positive action with a more greater return and fulfillment in the long term. Straight Talk identifies with the Hustlers on the block as “Investors”, and Hoes as “Appraisers”, because these Hustlers are nothing more than Investors, Appraisers, etc. I mean, view this... Hustlers invest into a product or service that produces them a massive amount of revenue on a consistent basis and rather fast pace. Not only do they risk a liability of a bad batch of product, and potentially losing customers until they re-up from that. They also have to have their marketing scheme down packed, and have to promote it well, as it is beneficial to be known, liked, and trusted in any type of business to be successful and to gain returning customers who come back each and every time and spend more money with them, and THEN those customers spread the word to others in the community about what it is that they have and how much of a missile the product/services may be, which increases the revenue. Now you tell me that that's not a good business owner. This is the talent that Hustler/Drug Dealers have, it just so happens that their talent has been negatively used. Some Hustlers are aware of their talent and have created a get out plan to turn that talent towards something more positive, which means they know better. But unfortunately, some just don’t know any better, so they continue to use that talent negatively, and flip what they know best. For many this lifestyle is the only way some of them know… Street Hustlin’… So “Street Dreamz” is a support line of those who understands the Street Hustling concept and knows the thrill of having fast money and making those moves reckless and large like that is addictive… very addictive and often times blind side the Hustler from stacking enough bread and getting out the game on time. Which leads to time being up on the street and the whole initial plan to get hood rich and etc.. fly out the window by getting tow off or more there of… It’s ALL about having a purpose and GET OUT plan... People will get high forever, but that wave doesn’t last forever, ask any of the greats… ponder on that a while... I know what it’s like to have to hustle in these streetz to maintain or take care of your family. I understand the thrill behind that quick dollar too. What I had to learn was how to put a purpose towards WHY I was doing it in the first place… My thoughts were “Is hustling like this a life-long plan for me? Or have I come up with a get out plan of any kind? Like, what the world am I doing this for - forreal?” After frequent thoughts in my head of the same questions over the next couple of days, I started writing… I wrote about different things I liked to do or want to build in my life. I wrote about any type of creative ideas I had, and how much money I could save a day to begin setting up a pot for myself… I started identifying my purpose for doing Street Hustling and that’s when the plan on how to get out begin to form… View more of this article in next month issue!
Junior Achievement Celebrates 100 Years
Ask any young person what they want to be when they grow up and you most likely will get lofty answers, such as a pro-football player or a You Tube star. While admirable, it may be worthwhile to temper these expectations and get kids thinking about a Plan B that incorporates their dreams i
Enter Junior Achievement (JA), a non-profit organization that is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Since 1919, JA has made it its mission to prepare youth for future jobs by helping young people understand
Currently, the JA network reaches approximately 5 million students a year in the United States, and
To understand its current mission, we have to look at the organization’s history, which began as the Boys’ and Girls’ Bureau of the Eastern States League, founded by AT&T chairman Theodore Vail, Strathmore Paper Company
Today, JA aims to educate youth with the knowledge and skills to achieve economic success in a variety of ways, whether that means going to college, starting a business, or learning a trade. JA programs are taught by volunteers whose goal is to help

JA began in 1919 with a focus on younger students, but shifted focus to after-school programs for high-schoolers who were encouraged to start student-run businesses with guidance from volunteer business advisors in the community. However,
Project Business, a program aimed at teaching business concepts to middle-schoolers during in-classroom sessions, and Business Basics, a program for elementary school children taught by volunteers from the high school programs, were introduced.
JA’s international expansion began in the 1950s with the opening of an office in Canada, followed by the first overseas Junior Achievement-affiliated organization, Young Enterprise (YE), in the United Kingdom in the 1960s. JA Worldwide currently provides

Some of the Biggest Misconceptions About Life Insurance
So much for fancy cars, houses and jewelry.Eighty-one percent of Americans believe their "most valuable asset" is their family, according to a new survey by Edward Jones and the nonprofit consumer-education organization Life Happens. And one quarter of respondents in the national sampling of adults confessed that their biggest fear was saddling their nearest and dearest with unexpected financial burdens if they’re unable to work or die prematurely.Which begs the question: If we’re so worried about protecting what we treasure most, why don’t more people have life insurance?Ask most experts, and they’ll tell you that such policies can help provide crucial resources for anyone with loved ones to support. And yet the latest figures show only 41 percent of U.S. households have individual life insurance."Most Americans have little or no safeguards for their financial goals," says Ken Cella, principal of the Client Strategies Group at the financial services firm Edward Jones. "They may understand the value of having emergency funds to cover unexpected financial expenses in the short term, but they’re less protected for the long-term financial implications."Faisa Stafford, president of Life Happens, puts it even more bluntly: "Emergency savings aren’t a long-term financial solution, especially if a family’s primary breadwinner were to die."Much of the disconnect between what we’ll call "the urge to protect" and the reality on the ground can be blamed on one or both of the following misconceptions:* It’s too expensive. Think of this as the equivalent of the alligators-in-New-York-City-sewers myth. When Life Happens and LIMRA, a global life insurance research and consulting group, asked participants in their 2017 Insurance Barometer Study how much a $250,000 term life policy for a healthy 30-year-old would cost, NerdWallet reports, the median estimate was $500 a year – more than three times the actual annual amount of $160.But let’s say that would-be policy holder wanted even more protection for his dependents. Forbes magazine recently calculated that that same incorrect median estimate – $500 – would buy a healthy, non-smoking, 30-something male a 20-year term policy with a million-dollar death benefit. Some people spend more than that in a year on caffe lattes.That said, prices do vary based on factors like age, health, amount of coverage, and whether you opt for term or permanent insurance. The former – the most affordable – covers a specific time frame (usually 20 years or less), while the latter stays in force for life (as long as you continue to pay the premiums). Online aids like Edward Jones’ complementary Life Insurance Needs calculator can help with factors to consider when determining how much life insurance may be appropriate for you. * The policy I have through work is good enough. And if you’re no longer employed there? Not only is group life insurance generally not portable, it typically only provides benefits equal to one or two times your annual salary."Growing families usually need greater protection than that," says Scott Thoma, an investment strategist at Edward Jones, "and they need coverage that’s not contingent on work status."Know that life insurance doesn’t simply assign a monetary value to someone’s life. Which brings us to another revealing finding of the Edward Jones-Life Happens "Protect What Matters" survey.Twenty-three percent of participants didn’t know it can even cover expenses like college tuition for a surviving child.Edward Jones is a licensed insurance producer in all states and Washington, D.C., through Edward D. Jones & Co., L.P. and in California, New Mexico, and Massachusetts through Edward Jones Insurance Agency of California, L.L.C.; Edward Jones Insurance Agency of New Mexico, L.L.C.; and Edward Jones Insurance Agency of Massachusetts, L.L.C.

Small Business Checklist for Tax-Time Technology Historically, American dinner plates have featured meat as its mainstay/star, with vegetables as Anyone who operates a small business, home-based business, or even a home office knows that tax time can be stressful. However, investing in the right equipment and technology can help a small business navigate tax season – and every season – smoothly and efficiently.Some tips to make
technology work for you at tax time:- Digitize: Making the transition to digital documents can be a big step for a small business, but converting documents to digital is becoming increasingly simple and popular.Advantages of scan-todigital at tax time include less paper to sort through and easy access to a variety of records.- Go mobile: Try using a mobile device or laptop and a portable scanner to digitize tax documents while on the road.Portable scanners can save space in the office setting as well, by reducing the amount of space needed to store paper records and documents.Printing from a mobile device or laptop to a wireless-enabled printer also helps save time, especially during tax season. And many printers have se-
curity features for output management and ease of use.When choosing the right office products, key points to consider include:- Convenience. Equipment that is easy to set up and use saves valuable time for small businesses. For those on the go, portable products such as the Canon imageFORMULA P215II Scan-tini handle document scanning for individuals on the road or working remotely. A lightweight design allows for easy document digitization from a range of locations, such as a hotel, airport, offsite meeting venue, or a home office.- Confidence. Investing in technology with a trusted reputation means less worry that an office solution – hardware or software – might fail at a crucial time. The technology of scanners designed for small businesses has improved in recent years."Small businesses with limited resources demand reliability and dependability in their document management technology," says Nobuhiko Kitajima, VP and general manager of Canon USA Inc.’s Business Imaging Solutions Group.One example, the Canon imageFORMULA DR-M260 Office Document Scanner, provides small businesses with reliable and efficient performance, and comes with an industry-leading, five-year warranty.- Protection. Data security is essential, especially for businesses that work in the cloud. Be sure to choose products with security features, such as password protection, multi-factor log-in and output file encryption.
