Eric Shares Insights on Entrepreneurship

Henry Ford Academy (Dearborn) alum turned entrepreneur Eric Thomas is a branding specialist and senior partner at Saga MKTG based in Detroit MI. He never believes “the way it has been done” is the “way it must be done.”

Learn from his Mlive.come opinion piece “Lies the Hood Taught: 3 ways being poor lied to you about success.”

He writes: “We have to actively seek out alternative methods of thought and begin to create new paths in places that make sense. No more barrel scraping. Let’s form a ladder together, climb out, and indulge in the bounty where there is plenty. Never forget, this also includes reaching back and helping others up as well.”
