Get Up And Get On It

Video description

In 1950 Gerald Frank, a determined Black man, arrived in Seattle at the age of eighteen. Fleeing the violence of Detroit and the suffocating grip of Jim Crow Laws, Gerald carried nothing but dreams and drumsticks in his heart. His unwavering belief that he could carve out a better life set the stage for an incredible journey. Today, over seventy years later, the real estate empire forged by Gerald and his wife, Theresa, continues to flourish under the guidance of the third generation of the Frank family. But theirs was not a journey paved with silver spoons.

In this book, Dana Frank paints a vivid picture of the hurdles her family faced. Dana herself confronted racial barriers as her father made unconventional business choices. When her parents' marriage ended in a bitter divorce, Dana and her mother emerged as fearless business partners, facing the brink of bankruptcy left by her father. As a single mother and entrepreneur, Dana learned the power of leveraging her network, staying true to her story, and envisioning a brighter future.

Get Up and Get On It is a compelling story of determination that challenges conventional paths to freedom. It is a must-listen not only for business influencers, entrepreneurs, executives, and philanthropists but also for anyone seeking inspiration and the keys to unlocking their full potential.
