Urban Radio Employee Becomes Innovative Entrepreneur


Radio Employee Becomes Innovative EntrepreneurA new concept in radio programming is born out of the struggle that radio veteran, Jacqui Allen, went through when she walked away from the industry and directly into the heat of the “great recession.””¦I had this idea for a specialty program that inspired listeners to dream, believe and live life more fully”¦ As I teetered on the edge of bankruptcy AND sanity, I was forced to take the concept off the shelf”¦and start working it”¦”(December 1, 2009) When Jacqui Allen, walked away from a 20 year career in radio, she walked right into one of the most difficult economic downturns in history. Out of her struggle to survive “the storm,” she became an accidental entrepreneur. Today she is blazing new trails with Soul Inspired Productions, a multi-media platform that seeks to inspire people to dream without limits, believe in new possibilities, and live life to the fullest.One of Jacqui’s favorite quotes is from former Essence Editor-In-Chief, Susan Taylor who said, “In every crisis there is a message. Crises are nature’s way of forcing change””breaking down old structures, and shaking loose negative habits so that something new and better can take their place.”In the Fall of 2008, Jacqui Allen launched “Soul Inspired” when she struck a deal with her first affiliate, WTYB, Savannah , Georgia   “I actually came up with the concept in 2001 while I was in graduate school. I had this idea for a program that combined uplifting music– that wasn’t necessarily gospel– with motivational messages and practical advice. As I teetered on the edge of bankruptcy AND sanity, I was forced to take the concept off the shelf, dust it down, and start working it,” said Jacqui.Since its launch, Jacqui Allen’s vision for “Soul Inspired” has greatly expand ed. “It’s not just a radio show anymore,” she says. “My plan is to create inspirational and motivational content that crosses all mediums””radio, television, film, books, and the internet.””Soul Inspired” is being offered to traditional radio stations, FREE– on a one year trial basis.Contact [email protected]
