#011: Christopher Thomas, the Man Who [literally] MADE SOUTH

When you look up ‘southern gentleman’ you see Christopher Thomas.

When you look up ‘visionary, storytelling-Entrepreneur with a huge heart, that can sell a hot tin roof to a cat’, you see Christopher Thomas.

I mean…

…he literally has MADE SOUTH!

Christopher really is a great guy, with a wonderful family, who is doing some really cool things with his companies.

He founded MADE SOUTH http://madesouth.com and recently purchased Eli Mason http://www.elimason.com

Chris is taking his show on the road in ways he’s never done before so be sure to check out his schedule on the MADE SOUTH website or watch this video:  https://youtu.be/TBqkudISb0A

Now, I have to warn you, Chris and I are pretty comfortable around each other so this episode may provide some entertainment value in addition to educational.  But I promise it doesn’t detract from the ‘good old fashioned value’ you’re going to find here.

Take my word for it.

We do cover a ton, goodness. (see how I’m even talking like him now?)

We get into traditional medicine vs a healthy lifestyle, his story (you’ll be spellbound, promise), MADE SOUTH, Eli Mason, keys to a great event (he’s a gifted host), storytelling, what it was like to work for Dave Ramsey (https://www.daveramsey.com), his family and why it’s so important to him, who he gets counsel from and why, and a ton more.

Lastly, but certainly not leastly, I pulled Bill Hampton in at the very end as a surprise appearance and gave him the opportunity to ask Chris a question or two.

Bill Hampton was Executive Vice President for Dave Ramsey and was leading a large portion of the company when he moved on in 2012.  Bill is now President of our company, Woodtex.  http://www.woodtex.com

Bill actually hired Christopher Thomas all those years ago, so I thought it may be fun to throw him in the mix.  It was.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the truths and chuckles you’re about the experience.

You’ll be glad you did.
