In Case You Missed It: My Interview With Dennis Wilson Jr. Regarding Business/Entrepreneurship And Branding

As many of you know, I’ve branched out from the Big Words Blog Site into YouTube where I now have four channels. My original channel is Big Discussions76 where I now discuss general topics. One of my recent guests is fellow Buffalonian Dennis Wilson Jr. (see the video at the bottom of this post). Being in the same peer group, Dennis and I played basketball in Buffalo’s “Yale Cup” high school basketball league around the same time in the early 1990s. After launching a career in education, Dennis started and has steadily built his own business empire. In addition to owning one of the more popular restaurants in Buffalo, the Oakk Room, Dennis further hosts high quality and sophisticated events and has also started his own clothing line.

In this interview, I asked Dennis about his background, his educational path, how he launched in the business world, and finally what he foresees going forward. Links to Dennis’ business websites are in the description box below the video.

In Case You Missed It: My Discussion With Rich Brown Regarding Being Generation-Xers

As many of you know, I’ve branched out from the Big Words Blog Site into YouTube where I now have four channels. My original channel is Big Discussions76 where I now discuss general topics. I’ve had several guests visit my channels in 2020. One of my recent guests on Big Discussions76 is a friend and a brother from Southeastern Michigan, Rich Brown. Rich and I met in the Detroit area when I was in graduate school at the University of Michigan and have been friends ever since. Befriending Rich was actually one of the bests parts of my stay in Michigan. With similar backgrounds and experiences, we’ve always been kindred spirits. In this interview we discussed our backgrounds and the challenges of being Generation-Xers from the inner cities of Buffalo and Detroit, in Western New York and Southeastern Michigan. For those not from either area, Western New York and Southeastern Michigan are very, very similar. Because I was catering to the ‘low attention span people’, I split our interview into three parts which are below. Thank you for watching and if anything in our discussion resonates with you, please like, share and subscribe to my channel.
