Today we talk with Bert Wright. Bert is the author of the book ‘Say Y.E.S’ – Going from Employee to Entrepreneur in 5 Steps. Bert has an interesting story in his experiences that led him to write this book and is involved with teaching the public about buiding their own wealth and becoming financially independant from scratch. In this episode we find out where Bert is from, where he went to school and the things that happened to him that turned him into a self made entrepreneur.

We are proud to announce another milestone here at The Marching Podcast Network. On Tuesday, November 26, 2013, we will be broadcasting our 100th episode on The Marching Podcast Network: Chop It Up with Joshua Cousin. We are blessed and honored to reach this milestone and would not have done it without the listeners and our entire staff. We also want to give thanks to all the people that have broadcast shows on our network and all the people that helped with each broadcast directly and indirectly.
We want The Marching Podcast to be a series of positive podcasts that help inspire young people to do great things and make a balanced decision concerning the college they choose to attend. It it also for the adults to have a platform to reach these young people and be a positive benchmark for the rest of the world. Our passion is to support Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). We strive to provide scholarships to help increase the number of scholarships available and create excitement for HBCU’s. Similar to The Cosby Show and A Different World, we want The Marching Podcast to be that beacon of light and prosperity.
Each podcast has helped with the growth of the network and has also helped bring more listeners to a variety of our network’s other shows. At this time, I want to attempt to say “thanks” to everyone. Thank you to all the shows that have broadcast on The Marching Podcast Network, the people that have helped with audio quality and creative presentation, and last but not least our sponsors and patrons that allow us to broadcast during peak hours (please see the list below for more details). Special thanks to Collin Welbon our Director of Editing, who just recently boosted his career by taking a new job editing for a software company where he lives in San Francisco but will still be able to edit our posts. Another special thanks to all the experts that call in and help me host the 90 Degree Show.

I write another post in full excitement as I introduce another show to The Marching Podcast Network and a topic that is vital for improving the community. Bert Wright is a chapter fraternity brother of mine that has encouraged me to set up a college plan for my children. I am currently in the works of putting this together. This type of knowledge is something I would like to share with my friends, family, and also with the listeners of this radio network. Putting our money in the right places not only empowers our families but also empowers other people around us. They see the benefits of our money working for us and not so much us working for our money. In talking to Bert he believes that we can educate the public on the basic principles of financial security and we can give them opportunities to set up financial plans for their families. So we welcome Bert Wright to the family every second Tuesday of the month starting in January 2013.
