We had the good fortune of connecting with Carl Wright and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Carl, as a parent, what do you feel is the most meaningful thing you’ve done for them?
I can honestly and proudly say that writing a children’s book about my son (COLLIN’S SWEET ADVENTURE) and starting a business behind it has been the most important and impactful thing that I’ve ever done as a parent!
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
C & C Wright Investments is an Enterprise. We offer custom notebooks, journals and activity books for children under the brand, Carl Is Always Wrighting “Your Literary Source”. The company is constantly creating for its readers and writers, with products available on platforms like ccwrightinvestments.com, Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, MEDU Bookstore (Greenbriar Mall), Young Gifted & Black Children’s Workshop (Stone Mountain, GA) and Dekalb County Public Libraries among others.
C & C Wright Investments also offers proofreading services and vending services.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
One cool spot that would satisfy any appetite is Metro Cafe Diner in Stone Mountain. They have a wide-ranging menu of casual fare from a 24/7 diner with a full bar that draws a late-night crowd. You can’t go wrong with their country fried catfish!
Another dining option would be with my long-time and talented friend, Chef Zay. He would definitely get a call. He’s the CEO of Winfrey’s Catering and can prepare anything for you in the comfort of your own home, while you kick back with friends and family.
Smoke In The Air BBQ & Good Eatz in Newnan is another business that I would patronize. My Brother, Clinton Dunlap is the founder and grillmaster there.
You can’t go wrong with The Works Atlanta. Located in the Upper Westside of Atlanta, it boasts an 80- acre adaptive mixed-use development. It’s an engaging place to work, shop, dine and unwind.
With me being a sports enthusiast, we would certainly have to check out whatever Atlanta-based team that’s playing a home game during the week. It could be The Falcons, Hawks, Dream, Braves, ATL United, UGA just to name a few lol.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Be true to yourself and seek God’s guidance in everything that you do. Treat others with respect. Be willing to put in the work, be it research or preparation to carry out your responsibilities with confidence. Let your word be your bond!
