71 minutes

Dr. Terry Neese is a serial entrepreneur who has founded numerous for-profit and nonprofit organizations, two of the most successful today being Terry Neese Personnel Services (which is now being run by her daughter, Kim) and the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women (IEEW)—the latter of which discuss in-depth in today’s conversation.

Dr. Neese made history in 1990 when she became the first woman nominated by a major political party for the seat of Lieutenant Governor of Oklahoma. She was named an Outstanding Business Leader by the Northwood University Board of Trustees in 2006 and received an honorary Doctor of Law degree from the university in 2008.

In 2013, she received the Enterprising Women Legacy Award from the National Women Business Owners Corporation, and was among those featured at The Journal Record's Fourth Annual Oklahoma's Most Admired CEOs. In 2014, Dr. Neese was only the second woman to be honored with the Sister Cities' Global Vision Award.

In this episode, Dr. Neese shares how she made her foray into entrepreneurship, why she believes that business owners ought to “Get Involved In Politics Or Go Out Of Business” (GIIPOGOOB), the impetus behind and the ongoing initiatives around her work at the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women, and why creating businesses is a big step toward creating peace and economic stability.
