Ever wonder what’s it’s really like to be an entrepreneur, or even a social entrepreneur? It’s one thing to dream about it. It’s something very different to “live it outloud” every day as a full time profession.
Carole Copeland Thomas shares secrets, successes, obstacles, and little known realities about the day to day life she has led for the past 25 years as a self employed entrepreneur. This up close and personal encounter will be especially useful for those thinking about entrepreneur but are afraid to take the leap.
It should also be helpful for those already self employed and looking for some inspiration and insight toward the next level of your business journey.
It may look glamorous, but becoming your own boss is hard work, offers no guarantees, and requires much stamina and determination. You’re constantly reinventing yourself and always looking for new opportunities to identify new clients and customers in the pipeline.
As a speaker, trainer, global thought leader, author, and community builder, Carole has worked in nearly every state in the US, and has taken her work to the UK, Australia, Canada, South Africa, Kenya, and El Salvador.

On today's show, put your feet up, relax, listen to the music and celebrate the holidays with Carole. We'll look at the dramatic events of the Lame Duck Congress, where remarkable bills were passed despite the naysayers. And we'll reflect on the beauty of Christmas and what it means around the world to millions of Christians who honor the birth of Jesus Christ. Then we'll look at the week long celebration of Kwanzaa, a secular celebration with African roots, that has caught on in many parts of the world. Let's celebrate the end of 2010 in triumph!!!
For some, it's Flag Day, a day to remember the rich history of the American flag.
For others, it's just another work day.
For me, its a day like no other in my entire life. It's the day my only son was killed in a single occupant car accident on June 14, 1997.
This is Flag Day -- marking the date in 1777 when John Adams proposed the stars and stripes as the official flag of the United States. Making flags, banners, and pennants is a nearly $5 billion annual business in the U.S.
Today we'll listen to the Census Bureau's profile on the American Flag. Then we'll turn our spotlight on three remarkable "slice of life" stories from StoryCorp, the national organization archiving real stories about real people around the United States. One story details the transference of anger, pain and suffering into good when a father is murdered. Another story describes the personal partnership of a couple in the classroom. The third story is an unusual love story that transcends the stereotypes.
And then I will share some special stories of my late son, his twin sister and his older sister, and how the bonds of family love and connection even transcend death.
This show is dedicated to the memory of my late son, Mickarl D. Thomas, Jr.
