Liberian Entrepreneurship: Ganta Showing the Way with Tomah Seh Floyd

Of all the people, concessions and companies that have massively exploited Nimba County of its forests, its minerals—diamonds, gold, iron ore—and its labor, one of the few who emerged to give back by engaging seriously in other businesses is Tomah Seh Floyd.

What Happened to Maryland County... and Its Most Powerful Families—the Andersons and Tubmans?

The Holy Bible constantly warns us all to beware what we do and how we do it, for it could come back to haunt us. The good Book clearly warns, “Whatsoever [a person] soweth, that shall [he/she] surely reap.”
