Dr. Marcia Forbes - as the author, the academic, the entrepreneur and co founder of the Caribbean's leading media production entities, Phase 3 Productions - those are the stories most know.
In a 2-part, no holds-barred conversation, we get to know Marcia as she shares her story, from a young wife to now widower, mom and now grandmother.
From growing up in 1960's Jamaica, a love-child living with her father's family, to tales of motherhood, marriage, infidelity, building a business with her husband of almost 40 years, his illness and the emotional journey as she nursed him up to his passing.
Marcia gets real about how she also pursued her dreams beyond entrepreneurship to become a Fulbright scholar and academic, and shaper of the Jamaican media industry as a whole (transforming the then Government owned television station, JBC now TVJ while at it).
Part 1 ends with her entire business literally going up in flames in a fire - while they were temporarily without insurance coverage!
So much goodness in this episode!
