Today we heard from Robert Hudson, author of the award-winning book “A Better Tomorrow” who spoke about jobs in the heartland. Robert is a lawyer who serves entrepreneurs who deal with employment issues as they build their businesses. He previously served as President of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. After years of writing columns for the newspapers, a friend suggested he compile all his columns and build out a book which chronicles the first term of President Obama from a business perspective.
A primary inspiration for the book was a business person who grew up as a child of an absentee, moon-shiner father. As he grew up, the business man worked hard as an employee and saved every penny he earned. Eventually, he broke his family’s cycle of poverty. This book is a testament to the fact that we live in a country where we can accomplish anything.
Next week we will hear from Bob Derr from the Veterans Association and organizer of FALLEN HEROES Commemorative Sculpture.
