Young Entrepreneurs to be highlighted

Are entrepreneurs born, made, or created?  Three young entrepreneurs will be the featured speakers at the Coastal Carolina Taxpayers Association’s (CCTA) monthly public program on Tuesday, November 21st at 7:00 p.m. at the Stanley Hall Ballroom in New Bern.  The three are…


Corey  Purdie

Corey Purdie made a mistake while he was very young that led to time in prison.  That mistake has turned into a blessing for him and many others because Corey became  determined to help himself and to help those who have been through a similar situation .  He started “Miracle Wash,” and this led to a successful car cleaning and detailing business.  Corey has given job opportunities to people who, like him, have served time in prison and want to build a better life.  Come and hear his story.  Some might say it involves “the school of hard knocks.”

Carlton Tyndall

Carlton graduated from ECU School of Business with Honors in 2010 with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship.  He was awarded the Young Professional Leadership Award in 2012 by the NC Nursery and Landscape Association. In 2014, he was selected to participate in the Trailblazer’s program hosted by the Professional Landcare Network where his business, Atlantic Coast, had the opportunity to have a green industry professional consulting firm come in to work with him.  In his free time, Carlton enjoys hunting, fishing, and playing music.  While his story is unique, his pathway to entrepreneurship involves traditional schooling.

Sarah Benischek

Sarah, a Marine wife and young mother, with a creative mind and strong work ethnic started a business called “Sassy Brass.”   Sarah designs and makes jewelry and small gifts using spent ammo brass.  She sells her products at gun shows.   Sarah also made a successful bid for public office, but due to circumstances involving a change of address, she was unable to accept the position.  Now, Sarah’s Marine is about to retire, and she expects to live in this area long term.  That and her high energy and charming personality have enabled her to launch a successful new career with Keller Williams in real estate.   She has recently earned a “Rookie of the Year” award.  Sarah’s story involves starts and stops and hurdles overcome.
