Ep 118: Don't say can't; say how. Moving from gunshot to the greater good with 'Mr. Inspire', Eric Patrick Thomas

Since being shot in the neck 23 years ago and suffering a spinal cord injury that paralyzed him from the neck down, entrepreneur and advocate Eric Patrick Thomas (a.k.a. Mr Inspire) has defied the odds and naysayers alike while creating success through an incredible attitude and sheer force of will.
Eric shares about childhood, recovery, his relationship with FUBU founder and Shark Tank member Daymond John, how he raised $80K+ for an accessible van, appearing before the House and Senate to support others, and more.

 

About the Guest:

Eric Patrick Thomas (a.k.a. Mr. inspire) is a Flint, MI, native and entrepreneur who is passionate about changing the way people view disabilities. This passion came after a fateful night in 1997, in which Eric suffered a spinal cord injury that paralyzed him from the neck down. Throughout this journey Eric uses his experience to empower resilience and inspire change for people with barriers.

In addition to serving the community as a public speaker-both motivationally and at House and Senate hearings-Eric sits on several state boards as a voice for people with barriers, is an advocate for Self-Determination living, hip-hop artist, D-MAN ambassador and is the founder of inspire® brand clothing.  Eric is also the proud owner of EZ Awareness By Design, a business specializing in graphic design for custom apparel, signs, and banners which offers on-the-job experience to people of all abilities.
