  • First African American Presented with Key to the City of St. Charles, Mo.

    Published on June 30, 2021

    St. Louis, Mo: Joseph Luckett – an internationally recognized author and business owner – was recently the first African American in St. Charles’ 250-year history to receive the key to the city.

    Luckett is the CEO and Founder of his three-year-old company Zero to 100, an inclusive global networking movement co-founded with wife Carol.  The debut of his bestselling book “Zero to 100:  The Gold Standard of Global Networking” recently became a number one international best seller on Amazon within the first 43 hours of its launch.

    Written by a minority networker who saw a lack of inclusive processes, Luckett’s “Zero to 100:  The Gold Standard of Global Networking” serves as a blueprint to measurable networking via in-person and virtual opportunities.  The book has received endorsements from industry leaders including Business Network International (BNI) founder and New York Times best-selling author Dr. Ivan Misner and Steven David Elliott, CVO of Rockstar Connect and author of “Mingle.”

    This is one of the first networking books with scientifically proven statistical analysis based upon a real-world trial. Book participants in a 12-week research study reported 346% improvement in overcoming the challenges of networking, 296% improvement in the benefits of networking, and 170% increase in income.

    A portion of the book’s proceeds will support Spirit of Discovery Park, a fully accessible theme park to be built in St. Louis for people of all abilities.  In conjunction with his book’s release, Luckett is currently developing a social networking platform and app to measure networking success and create an offline culture.

    “We at Zero to 100 are driven to create a more inclusive community both through networking education and giving back to the Spirit of Discovery Park,” said Luckett.  “It is truly an honor – as both an African American man and entrepreneur – to be recognized for my book which caters to people of all ethnicities, genders, races and abilities.”
