Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) May 22, 2017
Central Arkansas has a new radio personality in local entrepreneur Kerry McCoy of Arkansas’ FlagandBanner.com.
In September of 2016, McCoy noticed a need for advice and mentoring small business owners in the Central Arkansas area. Those already in business or starting a business, needed not only technical help, but guidance, reassurance and encouragement to aid them in achieving their business goals.
Arkansas offers many tools to help someone start a business, but personal stories from real business owners from a wide range of businesses were not readily available. For many people, hearing real life experiences from local entrepreneurs who have been in the trenches is encouraging. These are the people that took a leap of faith, quit a job for a dream, and risked an unsecure future to start their own business. Sharing their success story and answering listener’s questions can be just what a freshman entrepreneur needs to continue working to achieve their dream. Accessing those stories and that advice was not always easy, so McCoy decided to change that.
McCoy began her radio show “Up in Your Business with Kerry McCoy” on September 16, 2016 and has now broadcast more than 35 episodes on KABF 88.3 FM in Little Rock. The show airs live on Friday afternoon from 2-3pm. Each week, an Arkansas business owner shares their story with McCoy in a candid conversation. Listeners can hear the show again the following week at upyourbusiness.org where there is a podcast, bio on guests, behind the scenes video, plus links to resources and tips discussed on the show.
This week’s guest is James “Skip” Rutherford. He is a long-standing figure in Arkansas politics, working as a key advisor on Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign and later serving as president of the Clinton Foundation and as dean of the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service. Rutherford also led the effort to plan the William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Park, which would garner him several awards.
Tune in this Friday to hear Rutherford discuss what it was like to work on a presidential campaign, how the design and location of the Clinton Library was chosen and what the mission of the Clinton School of Public Service is and how to enroll.
