Black Enterprise Magazine January-March 2019 Issue

Black Enterprise will present its inaugural SOAR! Empowerment Series of events, which will kick off in Atlanta on April 6, 2019, at the Georgia World Congress Center. Inspired by The New York Times best-selling book SOAR! Build Your Vision From The Ground Up by T. D. Jakes, SOAR is a one-day event business series produced by Black Enterprise in partnership with T.D.J. Enterprises L.L.P. SOAR is designed to be the perfect opportunity for those seeking to maximizing their earning power, gaining optimal health, and creating multigenerational wealth.

“SOAR Empowerment event programming was specifically designed to equip participants with a vision for their health and prosperity, and a flight plan to reach their destinations,” said Black Enterprise President and CEO, Earl “Butch” Graves Jr. “These events are for those who are ready to take immediate action to get their dreams off the ground to create multigenerational wealth.”

SOAR attendees will leave the event with an action plan for acquiring assets, building personal and household net worth, and building real, measurable wealth. SOAR will provide access to career and business opportunities with high earning potential that can fuel long-term wealth creation for attendees.

“I wrote SOAR as a how-to-guide for those individuals desiring to give flight to their dreams but not knowing how to takeoff,” said T.D. Jakes.  “The SOAR series is the transformational master class that delves into the heart of business success strategies with unprecedented access to the mindsets, lifestyles and workstyles of some of the foremost leaders and influencers in the game today.”

SOAR will welcome high-powered sessions on critical life and career topics such as How to Monetize your Business Idea, Talent, or Passion; Maximizing Your Earning Power; and How to Design a Nutrition Plan that Works for You, just to name a few. Get the education, resources, and connections you need to boost your personal net worth and income growth for years to come at SOAR!
