Liberian Musicians: How Unique Are You

There are millions of wonderful talented musicians and artists in the world. Are you just one of them or are you a unique brand?  Having a brand is key to a successful music career. Once you see yourself as unique, it reduces the pressures of competition because you know that you have something special to offer. The same holds true when you know why are you are the ideal person to satisfy the needs of your target audience. If you truly believe that you are the best person for that audience, it reinforces your uniqueness. I have had the opportunity to speak with many Liberian artists.  One of my favorite question asked is, "who are your target audience?" Unfortunately, I get the same response from most, "I'm international, the world is my target audience."  Marketing wise, not a wise ideal.  Realistically, that is egoistical, you can't win the whole world with your talent but you could win a lot of people with the same musical desire with your talent.

Liberian-American relations: A new engagement model of trade and investment

By Benoni Urey | August 20, 2015, 08:00 am There is no country on the planet with more blood ties to the United States of America than the West African nation of Liberia. Today, my country Liberia desperately needs U.S. assistance, but not necessarily how aid has been offered in the past.  Liberia needs more trade and investments with the U.S.  We can accomplish that by preparing Liberians to participate fully in the globalized economy.      The United States played a pivotal role in the formation of Liberia and has continued to support my country’s development for nearly 200 years.  In 1816, Reverend William Finley, a  pastor  from Basking Ridge, New Jersey influenced several American luminaries  to form the American Colonization Society  for the expressed purpose of sending  freed slaves to Africa.  Finley convened a meeting of James Monroe , Bushrod Washington , Andrew Jackson , Francis Scott Key and Daniel Webster   at the Davis Hotel in Washington D.C.     Henry Clay le

Another Candidate Enters Liberia’s 2017 Presidential Race

                                                                                           In Liberia, a former associate of former President Charles Taylor has declared his candidacy for the country’s 2017 presidential election. Businessman Benoni Urey, who served as head of the country’s lucrative Bureau of Maritime Affairs during the Taylor presidency, said he wants to be president to improve the living condition of all Liberians. He refused to criticize President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s government, which some say has not delivered what it promised the country more than 10 years ago. Rather, Urey said his presidency will unite Liberians while providing the basic essentials of life, including water, shelter, and electricity. He also promised to fight nepotism and corruption. “I’m certainly desirous of being president because I want to improve the living condition of my people. I want my people to be placed among nations that are developing. For too long, our people have been in
