More About Helping Others Help Themselves

H.elping O.thers H.elp T.hemselves is the brainchild of former Chairman of the Lake Norman Chamber Ambassadors, Joe Carbon. Joe, as the rest of the country, has witnessed the decline of our economy and the loss of jobs by the masses. In 2010, Joe heard about a job opportunity available with one of our Chamber members, Country Suites. Knowing that one of his Ambassadors was in need, he referred him for a position as a part-time shuttle driver. A year and a half later, he is now the Events Manager for Country Suites in Huntersville, NC.

Later that year, Joe met Vickie Stevens, owner of “CONCIERGE of Lake Norman”. While servicing her vehicle he met her husband Jack Stevens, a retired bank president. Jack has a contagious people-oriented personality and a skill set that just cannot be taught. Joe was floored that a man of Jack’s talents, experience, and maturity (age 75) was being overlooked and keeping him from getting a job utilizing his skills and abilities.

Knowing the Chamber office was temporarily shorthanded, Joe referred Jack for a position. One year later, Jack is the face and voice of the Chamber to all who visit or call. He is the “Jack of all trades” in the Chamber office, sold more Chamber memberships than anyone, and is one of the first faces you see at any Chamber event.  Joe refers to Jack as “our secret weapon”, because all who meet him take an immediate liking to him.

As a result, in January 2011, H.O.H.T. was born to help Lake Normanders get back to work. Simply, H.O.H.T. is an exclusively Lake Norman free job bank pairing employers with job seekers. Joe enlisted the help of co-sponsor Vickie Stevens to help facilitate the program.
