The interview will help listeners learn more about this interesting Arkansan in a fun and candid conversational interview. Up in Your Business began as a way for business owner Kerry McCoy, president of FlagandBanner.com, to pay forward her forty plus years of business experience. The weekly radio show offers advice and mentoring for small business owners and real-life experiences of prominent Arkansans. The individuals featured each week are those who rose to fame in Arkansas or took a leap of faith, perhaps quit a job for a dream and risked an unsecure future to start their own business. The firsthand account from these local celebrities of their journey to success was previously unavailable to the average Arkansan until now.

Listeners who miss the live show can hear it the following week at FlagandBanner.com where there is a podcast, bio on guests, behind the scenes video, plus links to resources and tips discussed on the show.
