At 6:15-Sharita Benson began designing while a Marketing major at North Carolina A&T State University in 2001. She purchased her first sewing machine for her 21st birthday. With the knowledge she gained in her 8th grade home economics class, she began to teach herself garment construction. Disappointed in the choices for women in the plus-size market she began creating and wearing her own designs. In 2002, due to a friends insistence she began to sew for others. S. Benson Corporation was created in 2007, it launched its first line of handbags that same year called Conversation Piece by S. Benson. In 2012, she re-launched as S. Benson Clothing and Accessories. Our design philosophy is "Clothing design with your figure in mind!". Her goal is to provide comfort, versatility, and style to women of all shapes and sizes!
7:15- NOBS is comprised of three, thirty-somethings who describe themselves as solution-based, risk takers. With growing concern and frustration about constant updates of personal tragedies in the news and on social media, this lady and two gentlemen decided they would use technology as a means to fight back and help people feel empowered.The idea came about at an amusement park of all places. While waiting in line to ride a roller coaster, the NOBS C.E.O., Starr Armstrong scrolled through her Facebook newsfeeds. Upset by the latest bad news she asked her friend and soon to be business partner, Christopher Carrington, “What if there was an app for that?” which led to a thoughtful discussion. After enduring numerous loops and drops, she hurried home and contacted her other friend and future business partner Lee Dear, whom she refers to as the King of all things I.T. and media related and informed him of the concept. The rest is technological history.
I didn't book a special guest this week for #NoChaserRadio on purpose. Why? Because I wanna issue a challenge. Pick any status update you like, and see if you have what it takes to change my position on it. It's easy to get froggy on a post, because you have time to edit, read, think about it, then edit again. It's a whole different situation with me live and direct, talking right back to you. Feeling froggy? Bring it. I do this sh*t. Let's have some real conversation. Saturday night. 10PM EST. 347-202-0850. I'm willing to bet everybody who had every thing to say about when I should 'pay' won't even call in at all. Yeah. I said it. And I'm still right here. One love.#NoChaser
