Eric Richards has spent the better part of the past decade making quite a name for himself in the Indianapolis Not-for-Profit scene. Before heading up Cancer Support Community Central Indiana, Eric was VP of Development and Communications for Little Red Door Cancer Agency.
CSC's signature fundraiser is "Laughing Matters," which next year features the very funny Nick Offerman of Parks and Recreation fame. Cancer, of course, is "no laughing matter," but this one night of comedy provides a much-needed financial and emotional lift to the organization.
When Eric isn't busy fundraising for cancer initiatives, he pours his heart and soul into his music. Eric has been a live musician performing around Indianapolis for years with the band Frayed Edges.

Starting and running a business is not all it's cracked up to be. Young entrepreneurs often sweat bullets over things that the "common people" don't ever need to worry about:
How will I make payroll? How will I get new leads? How will I fill orders?
It can be lonely at the top.
Harry Howe of Howe Leadership in Indianapolis will launch http://indygrit.community on September 27th, and he joins Hoosier Hometown Heroes to tell us all about this exciting new organization.

Brian Wheeler is CEO of Legacy Practice - a fee based specialty advisory firm for doctors, dentists veterinarians and business owners. If you own a practice of some sort, but find that the "business" part of what you do is dragging you down, then Brian is just the guy for you. Doctors, dentists, etc. are super smart and very caring, but they aren't always educated in the ways of business ownership.
Legacy Practice fills in the gaps to help your practice thrive. All of Legacy's "mojo" flows from Brian's integrity and his desire to help. We hope you enjoy this inspiring conversation with Brian Wheeler!
