*In recognition of Women’s History Month, Auto Trends with JeffCars.com, a weekly multicultural syndicated automotive program, goes one-on-one with Tanisha A. Sykes.

Sykes, a veteran journalist, currently serves as the editorial director of finance for T Brand Studio, a sponsored content arm of The New York Times. Before landing her current high-profile assignment, Sykes established her footing in the magazine industry with such Black household staples as Essence and Black Enterprise, serving as the money and finance editors. During the two-part conversation, the gregarious and gifted storyteller revisits how the host, Jeff Fortson, became a national automotive writer under her mentorship.

Moreover, the detailed writer talks about her personal connection to three Black icons and what impact each of them had on her career. Those larger-than-life figures ranged from the founder of Black Enterprise magazine, Earl Graves, Sr., to the legendary Susan L. Taylor, Essence magazine editor-in-chief, emeritus, to hammering Hank Aaron, who was BMW’s first Black dealer.

Furthermore, the journalistic media maven discloses publicly what drove her to step away twice from high profile job assignments, before accepting her current position. Ironically, many of today’s working women will be able to relate to Sykes as she talks about the balancing act required, especially when dealing with individual and life-threatening health concerns.
