Lisa Stockdale has been nominated in the category of community action for a 2014 International Women's Day Recognition Award in Ohio. Lisa is a motivational speaker, talk-show host, political activist and senior advocate who currently works as a community liaison in the senior arena. She is the creator & host of Senior Agenda which airs weekly on Thursdays at 10:00 am on www.talktainmentradio.com and Columbus Community Radio at 98.9 and 102.1 FM. The program covers a wide array of senior issues ranging from disproportionate poverty to second chance romance. Lisa uses the program to help raise awareness and call the community to action. She also authors a blog called Senior Agenda where she educates and entertains us weekly. She is a board member for the Franklin County Task Force on Aging and accepts several speaking engagements each year.
The following is a questionnaire that Lisa completed after being notified of her recent nomination:
· What is your business name and how can someone get in touch with you for your services? Senior Agenda with Lisa Stockdale - email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the studio at 1-877-932-9766
· When did you decide to be a “woman entrepreneur” and why? I really don't consider myself an entrepreneur but I am an advocate. I have been advocating for women since my college days. I have been advocating for seniors since 2009. I do it because the need it great and the senior arena is filled with too many opportunists and not enough advocates.
· Describe your business services and why someone would want to work/buy from you? We aren't selling anything but anyone who cares about or is a senior will benefit from listening to Senior Agenda and following us on the blog.
· What do you like best about being “woman in business”? The opportunity to continue to advance a women's perspective as valid and meaningful.
· What did you think when you heard you where nominated for an International women’s day Recognition Award? WOWSA
· How do you feel about being a part of IWD history and the March 8th Columbus, OH Charity celebration? I am very excited because the spotlight is on women and that makes me smile all the way down to my toes.
· What advice would you give to inspire other women to own/start their own business? Surround yourself with like-minded positive women. Learn to turn a deaf ear to those who try to tear you down. Be true to yourself and never compromise your integrity.
· What is your heritage and ethnic background? Native American/Irish which is another way of saying I don't know anything about how to tell a story slowly!
