As record store owner Rob Gordon (played by John Cusack) said in the film High Fidelity: “What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?,”. Let’s face it:  sometimes it just doesn’t work out. Mr. Right turns out to be Mr. Right Outta My Life. Love can go spectacularly bad, and when it does, what’s there left to do but listen to some soul and rock music that celebrates WHEN LOVE GOES BAD! Monday night May 20, SOUL SERENADE (host Tom Shaker) and POSITIVE NOISE (hosts Uncle Mark and the Lovely Sheila) present an entire evening of music about rocky relationships, cheating low lifes, and romance on the ropes.

In an encore of The Business Beat, Steve D’Agostino interviews Satya Mitra, author of The 5 C’s. They talk about ideas for successful entrepreneurship and leadership. This episode aired originally on April 7, 2019.

Satya Mitra, 67, came to the U.S. at age 25 in 1976 with $6 in his pocket - and thankful to those who helped him reach this country. He grew up in poverty in India after losing his mother when he was 3 from brain meningitis, and at times was homeless. His father, a teacher, started losing his sight at 50, becoming blind at 62.

Now a successful entrepreneur operating The Guru Tax & Financial Services in Worcester with clients around the world, Satya, his wife and their two sons are giving back to the community they say has given so much to them. In 2016, the family established a charitable foundation — Joyguru Humanitarian Services — with a goal of helping homeless people, the blind and visually impaired, and poor students, and empowering women and girls through free self-defense lessons. Primarily, the Mitras fund the foundation and hold some fundraising events with a dream of building an international humanitarian center in Worcester in the next few years.

Satya has also launched an international speaking career to spread the message of helping others and giving people hope. He has released a book called The 5 C’s that offers ideas for successful entrepreneurship and leadership.

On March 30, during the evening of this interview’s initial airing, Satya will receive the Odd Fellows Home Salute to Achievement Award for his service, support and professionalism throughout Worcester and Worcester County. And, Worcester Business Journal has named Satya as one of four 2019 inductees to its Hall  of Fame.
