Timothy shares a tribute to the African American Business Icon, Joe Louis Dudley for Black History Month. Dudley is a Hair care and Beauty School Pioneer who build a multimillion dollar empire helping equip, educate and ultimately, enhance Black Beauty. He became known for empowering other leaders and equipping them with the skills to build and scale their own businesses.  This interview is one of Mr. Dudley’s final before passing away.  We hope our MBDA MBE community is inspired by this tribute episode.
