When we first saw this young man speak years ago, ask we knew he’d take the world by storm; we also knew the “G” in his name must stand for “going places.”

Mike Heagerty piloted the Syracuse Bar Cycle (aka The Little Yellow Fellow) down S. Salina Street yesterday.

Get ready to see a lot more of this vehicle roaming downtown streets. Could OnTrack’s revival be next?

What’s the Deal?

Attorney Jose Perez

Attorney Jose Perez

About a decade ago Jose Perez was delivering pizzas. But these days,  the Ithaca-born, Venezuela-raised attorney is getting his clients sweet deals f0r personal injury, immigration and business contracts. He talked about his personal journey during an entrepreneur forum sponsored by The Upstate Minority Economic Alliance (UMEA) on Friday. The event was held at the Southside Innovation Center.

Perez also shared some business advice. Here are some of his tips for getting the most from your next negotiation:

  • Present a concrete case
  • Prepare for disputes
  • Consider unconventional deal structuring
  • Don’t be afraid to leave the table
  • Bring the big guns (use leverage when necessary)
  • Avoid quick fixes

Gisele Marcus

Gisele Marcus Leans In

Syracuse University’s Office of Multicultural Affairs may have saved the best speaker for this year’s Black History Month Program for the last few days. Whitman School of Management and Harvard biz school grad Gisele Marcus was the inaugural speaker for the Sankofa Lecture Series on Friday afternoon.

In addition to giving her bio and educational journey, the Harlem-born Marcus also gave her secrets to the sauce that makes up success. Some of her ingredients include: seeing the world, networking, finding sponsors (as well as mentors), fighting against injustice and getting paid what you are worth.

She also encouraged those in attendance to find their own sankofa moments in life, she added.

Marcus’s presentation, enthusiasm and pearls of wisdom were worthy of a Power Networking breakout session, Google Talk or a City Club of Cleveland forum.

Hopefully the lecture was recorded so every incoming freshman can see it; hopefully she makes it back to campus soon to share more of her story.
