At the age of twenty, African American Gardner arrived in San Francisco to pursue a promising career in medicine. However, he surprised everyone and himself by setting his sights on the competitive world of high finance. Yet no sooner had he landed an entry level position at a prestigious firm, Gardner found himself caught in a web of challenging circumstances that left him part of the city's working homeless with his toddler son. Motivated by the promise he made to himself as a fatherless child to never abandon his own children, the two spent almost a year in shelters, "HO-tels", and soup-lines. Never giving in to despair, Gardner went from being part of the city's invisible to being a powerful player in its financial district.--From publisher description

The tanning of America : how hip-hop created a culture that rewrote the rules of the new economy by Steve Stoute ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Fortune 500 companies need to reenergize or reinvent a lagging brand, they call Steve Stoute. In addition to marrying cultural icons with blue-chip marketers, Stoute has helped identify and activate a new generation of consumers. He traces how the "tanning" phenomenon raised a generation of black, Hispanic, white, and Asian consumers who have the same "mental complexion," based on shared experiences and values. This consumer is a mindset--not a race or age--that responds to shared values and experiences, rather than the increasingly irrelevant demographic boxes used by corporate America. Stoute believes there is a language gap that must be bridged in order to engage this market force, and this book provides that translation guide. Drawing from his company's case studies, as well as from extensive interviews with leading figures of multiple fields, Stoute presents an insider's view of how the power of popular culture is helping reinvigorate the American dream.--From publisher description
