Tough Talk with Tony Gambone and his guest Samantha Elandary & Mike Calderwood

Samantha Elandary is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Parkinson Voice Project, the only nonprofit organization solely dedicated to preserving the voices of those with Parkinson’s and related neurological disorders.  She holds a Bachelors in Communication Disorders and English and a Masters in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of North Texas.  Since 1999, Mrs. Elandary has worked exclusively with Parkinson's patients and has devoted her career to making voice treatment accessible to any patient experiencing speech difficulties, regardless of a patient's ability to pay for treatment.  She also created "The LOUD Crowd®,” a maintenance program for Parkinson patients consisting of weekly speech groups, singing groups, and other engaging activities that help people with Parkinson’s keep their voices strong and clear. Parkinson Voice Project’s services are provided at no charge to their patients. 

Founded by Michael Calderwood, Thrive Business Center is an organization created to educate and support small business owners who are burned out, spinning their wheels and don't know what to do next. Michael brings nearly two decades of practical experience to the table, to help them fix what is not working in their business and create sustainable, profitable and thriving enterprises. Before founding Thrive Business Center, Michael was a serial entrepreneur for nearly twenty years. During that time he built dozens of businesses in many different industries, from home inspections to health and wellness to children’s entertainment. Some of these ventures were extremely successful, some less so, but building these businesses from scratch taught him exactly what it takes to make a small business thrive.
