David Porter in MBQ

If the heat's got you down, chill out with the summer issue of MBQ, out on newsstands now. The newest Memphis Business Quarterly -- a sister publication to the Flyer -- features on its cover Memphis music mainstay David Porter. Writer John Branston interviews the soul man, finding out how he parlayed his songwriting earnings into numerous business opportunities -- inside and out the recording studio.

Also in the issue, writer Jane Schneider investigates what Memphis businesses are breaking down the Great Wall and staking their own claim to the Chinese economic revolution. And a new feature, The MBQ Players — a showcase of top professionals in the industries that really matter to Memphis — is introduced. This issue, The MBQ Players profiles the power brokers in the Mid-South commercial real estate business.
