SHOW NOTES: In our ENTREPRENEUR EXPOSE´™ series we explore the reality of business opportunities for "non-traditional" individuals and organizations. By "non-traditional" we are referring to everything outside the traditional concept and stereotype of a person born into a wealthy and/ or powerful family who uses their connections and resources to start a business or join an already successful family firm. No matter where you born, your family of origin, your age, ethnicity or any other characteristic, you are a unique individual who can achieve what you desire!
In this episode we have the pleasure of interviewing businesswoman, Barbara Largent. Ms. Largent is the owner of the Baroness Salon in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (thebaronesssalon.com). The salon is located in Las Vegas, Nevada at: 4401 E. Sunset #1, Henderson, NV 89014. Ms. Largent has been in the beauty industry for over 20 years. She shares in this episode her journey from earning minimum wage (then in the $3 USD an hour range) in her first position after completing cosmetology school and gaining her license to now having her own salon and working part time (earning up to $8,000 USD per month). Her family (including her husband, children and grandchildren) is very important to her and she balances her enjoyment from her work with her happiness in her personal life.
In this honest and revealing interview, we found out the real “dirt” on owning a beauty salon in this highly competitive field. Hard work, a focus on long-term client relationships, and ongoing education in the beauty field make it possible to succeed!

This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour boasts several firsts …
We’ve had weeks where the bodies have been piled up, but never a week where the “Celebrity Deaths” accounted for 14 career Oscar Nominations for acting! T.E. Lawrence, The Baroness Elsa von Schraeder, Rebecca and Billy Jack are all remembered on this week’s show.
We’ve had numerous court cases pertaining to independent film covered in “Lawsuit of the Week” but this week boasts the first such lawsuit starring YOUR friends in podcasting! That’s right, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness were in court this past week and on this week’s show, they dish all the inside dirt!
Did Dean also do a “TED talk” this week? Well, not exactly … What he DID do is one of three “Live Events of the Week”.
This week’s show also brings another in the ways our brains lie to us – Something called “The Anchoring Effect” (no, it’s not a Robert Ludlum novel, but it IS something that could prove helpful to know about as you do your last minute holiday shopping!).
All that, plus a Dean Haglund correction from last week’s show, and much, much more, this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
From the depths of Villainy, the bowels of Sector III, aka poolside with the "bad guys" - Join Jack Cero, Rock N Roll, NightBug, Vector, John Drop and the First Couple of Chaos, Kaptain Blackheart and The Baroness as we discuss the Nation of Heroes road trip, villainous happenings at Pirate's Landing, and all things un-PC.
Tuesday brings in part 7 of The Bane Chronicles, and we see that Magnus Bane apparently can't help but make another trip to Hotel Dumort, in The Fall of the Hotel Dumort. Who could be there to lure him back after the tragedy of the last known experience he's had there? This time, it's those bloody vampires again that drag him there, but which one? Could it be a possible vampire baroness from generations past? Or could it be a suave, forever teen-looking vampire of Latin descent?
There will be *spoilers* on the story!
But before that, we'll have some announcements of what's goin
Sometime hilarious, many times bitter sweet this episode of Radio Free Kansas hails the passing of former Prime Minister Baroness Magaret Thatcher.
Robert Knight's 5 O'clock Shadow from WBAI fm in New York City paid respects to her last April 15.
Hear "Old Labour" Party Tony Benn in vintage audio from the early nineties while Maggie "the Iron Lady" was wielding power.
Then talk radio as it should be in Kansas. The popular UK Bristol Coop FM community radio show hosted by Tony Gosling "Drivetime" with a substantial portion of commentary on Thatcher's regime and the 10 million pound state funeral.
Gosliing's quick and witty back and forth with "old Labour" and Liberal Democrats makes for fast brain action when the discussion steers from the historical to the contemporary in political England. Try to keep up, Americans.
Senate Debates Debating Gun Regulation Bill - Democrats and the president are scrambling to come up with a gun regulation bill that could get enough Republican support to pass the Senate. Banning assault weapon characteristics or limiting magazine size are dead-on-arrival leaving Dems to fight for universal background checks. Democrats are reaching out to unlikely allies such as PA Senator Tim Toomey. Others such as Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are threatening to filibuster any legislation that includes any increase in regulations. We talk to Reid Epstein, White House Reporter for Politico.
"Iron Lady" Margaret Thatcher Dies at 87 - The first - and only - woman to be elected to the post of Prime Minister of the UK, Baroness Margaret Thatcher, died earlier today at the age of 87 after suffering a stroke. Thatcher, dubbed the “Iron Lady,” is considered by many to be the most consequential British prime minister since Winston Churchill, and also the most conservative. During her service, she pushed for privatization of many formerly nationalized programs, won a war against Argentina for possession of the Falkland Islands, and reopened relations between Britain and the USSR. She is also remembered for her ideological similarities and personal friendship with U.S. President Ronald Reagan. A hero for conservatives in the United Kingdom, Thatcher’s take no prisoners approach made her enemies among Irish partisans, labor groups and even from some in her own party, leading to her resignation. To weigh in on Thatcher’s life and legacy, we talk to Dr. Peter Trumbore, Political Science Professor at Oakland University, who has done extensive research into the Irish Civil War and the Anglo-Irish peace process. We also talk to Benjamin Harris-Quinney, Chairman of the Bow Group, England’s oldest conservative think tank.
