It Ain’t Over Til Its Over…

Both Marlo Thomas and poet Luis Rodriquez recently discussed at length how many people facing economic adversity use creativity and entrepreneurial tactics to prevail.

Thomas during an interview on Tavis Smiley discussed the theme of her book how women have started business during crisis in their lives.

Rodriquez  on a recent 3-hour appearance on C-Span recounted what he experienced as a worker who kept  seeing industry jobs cut or shipped overseas and how he began to gradually read the signs and tap into his creative side.

And if you watch PBS’ Craft in America 2014, one  segment features a group of out of work textile workers in North Carolina who banded together to create an entrepreneurial solution to mills sending jobs overseas.
