Press Release: Radio Personalit​y Michael Baisden Announces Submission Details for his “Million Dollar Business Pitch” Campaign

Nationally Syndicated Radio Personality Michael Baisden
Announces Submission Details for His “Million Dollar Business Pitch” Campaign

Michael Baisden is “Paying It Forward”
with $500,000 of his own money!

Radio personality, Michael Baisden announced the details of his “Million Dollar Business Pitch” campaign during his nationally syndicated show, “The Michael Baisden Show,” on Monday, November 28, 2011. Last month, Baisden initially announced his plans to provide a half-million dollars to small businesses and non-profits via the campaign. Listeners were instructed to tune into the radio show, Twitter, or FaceBook on November 28th for submission details.

Since then, Baisden has been telling his listeners “There’s no such thing as luck in business, you have to be prepared when opportunity presents itself!”

That opportunity was revealed in a three-step process for entrepreneurs to submit their businesses for a chance at a portion of a $500,000 small business investment, contributed solely by Baisden. Beginning January 2012, Baisden promises to begin cutting checks for businesses that can pitch their profit and non-profit companies the best. But there is a catch, he added, those selected must be committed to “Paying it Forward.”

“I want to support entrepreneurs who understand the importance of giving back,” states Baisden. “I started my business with $3,000, which was loaned to me by two co-workers and my mother. Once my business became profitable, I immediately started reaching back and paying it forward and I’ve been blessed ever since.”

Michael also stated that the process of submitting a business is not an easy one, nor was it meant to be. “In order to achieve success you must be diligent, organized, and above all else, have integrity,” he says. Entrepreneurs who are prepared for the challenge must go through three steps to get to the final round. Those step are as follows:

Step One – Read the Terms & Conditions then fill out the application
online at http://www.BaisdenLive.com, include a brief description of your business and submit a one to three minute video pitch of your business.

Step Two – If you make it to “Step 2” you will be contacted to submit a complete a comprehensive questionnaire, submit your business plan, your business financials and tax returns.

Step Three – If selected for “Step 3” Michael Baisden will fly you to a city of his choice to pitch your business live in front of him, a live audience and other potential investors. (Airfare, ground transportation and hotel will be at his expense.)

The winners will receive an investment of $10,000 to $100,00 in accordance with the rules.

“Good luck and may the best business win!” says Baisden.

Press Release: Controversial Documentary Film Screens in Atlanta at the Peachtree Village International

November 28, 2011, Atlanta, GA – Born from several questions and disagreement of an Essence Magazine article entitled “Blame it On Rio”, which painted Brazilian women as prostitutes and gold diggers, and African American men as adulterers and cheaters, film maker Al Greeze decided to get to the real reason African American men travel to Brazil. What he discovered may surprise you and the documentary film “Frustrated” will enlighten you.

As part of the Peachtree Village International Film Festivals Indie Film & Screening Review monthly events, “Frustrated” will be presented to an Atlanta audience on December 5th at the Green Room Actor’s Lounge followed by a Q&A and open discussion amongst the attendees with the film maker, Al Greeze. The Green Room Actor’s Lounge is owned by acclaimed actress Terri Vaughn, entertainment Attorney Shannon Nash & celebrated producer Roger Bobb. Greeze lived in Atlanta for ten years before moving back to NYC and agreed to holding its second screening in Atlanta where it was highly received previously coupled with the large film and African American communities.

Why are African American men finding love outside of their race, what do they feel is missing from African American woman. Are independent African American women driving men away, Is it more than a plane ticket and a border that divides relationships in the African American community? These questions and more are answered in the film as told by the woman and the men themselves who have made the choice to live, work or play in Brazil.

With a desire to make films that can change the way we see the world and ourselves, Greeze explains, “I didn’t make Frustrated to bash African American women or to co-sign on men who do travel outside the borders for love, but an attempt to get us as a community to learn where we are lacking in our relationships as couples and as families and get back to supporting each other. I also did not think the article was an accurate depiction of Brazil, the culture or its people. It was not written with an open mind.

Also on hand will be celebrity chef, Jason Ellis, finalist of Hell’s Kitchen demonstrating and preparing great dishes to order and giving tips on cooking and sharing his famous recipes while attendees view Frustrated, network and listen to screen readings.

Doors open at 6 pm and the screening will start at 7pm on December 5th at the Green Room Actor’s Lounge, 25-D Bennett St, Atlanta, GA 30309 (Buckhead) and is open to the public. Admission is $10.00.
Seating is limited – Please RSVP to pviff@live.com.

Press Release: Quadripleg​ic Rap Producer Professor X Is Determined to Stand Up in the Game with New Mixtape Release

Quadriplegic Rap Producer Bran-Don aka Professor X Is Determined to Stand Up in the Game With New Mixtape Release “Who Da F*** Is Dat N**** In Dat Wheelchair” Mixtape Pt.1

Los Angeles – As far back as grade school, young Bran-Don Aubert, aka Professor X, always had a big dream. Hailing from the crime-riddled streets of South Central Los Angeles he wrote his first rhymes in the second grade. Developing a passion for rap while listening to songs by Eazy-E, De La Soul and Too Short, he knew in his heart and soul that if he worked on his rap skills he would one day become a big hip hop star.

As a teenager however, his dreams were seemingly shattered, when one day, while playing around at his high school, a freak wrestling accident left him paralyzed. Not only could he no longer take simple steps or move around, things he had taken for granted; his despair was doubled when he discovered he no longer had the lung capacity to rap! Sixteen years old and the world that he knew and embraced had ended.

Today, as a young man, Professor X is a testimony to the essence of true determination. What might have crushed many only propelled him forward. With true grit and persistence he redirected his energy and stayed in the game. The release of his mixtape series “Who Da F*** Is Dat N**** In Dat Wheelchair” Mixtape Pt.1″ presented by DJ Rah2K and TNE DJ’s, is a compilation of his production efforts with guest appearances from his crew.

Armed with a plan to change the world’s perceptions about disabled artists, Bran-Don, in a stance similar to the popular Marvel Comics superhero, Professor X, is a visionary on a mission. Inspired and motivated by the quadriplegic comic superhero, Bran-Don aka Professor X eventually formed his own entity; an entertainment company called Taupnoych Entertainment and launched his own entourage of DJs known as TNE DJ’s.

With the release of his debut mixtape, Professor X hopes to gain massive attention and accolades from rappers and hip hop fans internationally. But even more so, he hopes to inspire those ‘abled’ and ‘disabled’ as a living testimony to the fact that there are no setbacks in life.

“In my hood, I was always ‘that guy in the wheelchair.’ I could hear the whispers about me and folks were always feeling bad for me. But the mind is our greatest muscle and the accident left mine in tact. I used this experience to propel me. Once I realized I might not be that great rapper I always dreamed of, I put my energy into producing. So when they ask now, ‘Who the hell is that guy in the wheelchair?’ It’s Professor X and I’m coming at you to show you if I can do it, so can you! The music is gangsta’, because sometimes life can be gangsta’. Regardless though, we are here to win!”

Under the auspices of Taupnoych Entertainment, Professor X has produced music for various hip hop artists, including Jet Black, and E-40’s artist Turf Talk. He has formed his own group called, 110, and recorded a track with rapper E-40 titled “Gettin’ That Gwop.” His artist crew, all featured on the mixtape release, consist of Lost of 110; Gizzle of 110; Cree-8 of 110; Donmo; Interstate Tip; Grown Up Goddi; Dj Mainvybe and J. Money Films. Turf Talk and Compton Menace also make guest appearances on the mixtape release.

For more information about Professor X and his music, visit http://www.ProfessorXTNE.com , follow him on Twitter @110harborfwy and friend him on Facebook under 110Harborfwy. “Who Da F*** Is Dat N**** In Dat Wheelchair” Mixtape Pt.1″ is available online on ITunes.

NOTE TO MEDIA: Bran-Don aka Professor X is available for interviews at jazzmynepr@gmail.com.
