    WHR 3.73 : Roger Nairn

    WHR 3.73 : Roger Nairn

    In today’s episode, Roger Nairn, the Co-Founder and CEO of JAR Audio joins us to talk about his journey in business. Roger helps companies and brands grow their revenue, accelerate their impact, and make meaningful connections with their audience by producing podcasts.
     
    Roger is a lateral thinker, problem solver, strategist, and finder of new ways. He believes in the power of the happy customer and spent years managing client relationships and building brands for world-famous agencies like DDB and Cossette.
     
    Throughout his career, he’s found himself working with a number of industry giants, including (but certainly not limited to) Netflix, Expedia, Walmart, Nordstrom, Lamborghini, Cineplex, Four Seasons Plus, and Vancouver’s own lululemon.
     
    On top of all of this, he followed his passions to become a Board Member for TEDxVancouver and has recently become an expert-level toddler wrangler through the magic of parenthood. When he’s not at work, he likes to golf, read, and—no surprises here—binges on the occasional podcast.

    WHR 3.70 : Dr. Steve Yacovelli

    WHR 3.70 : Dr. Steve Yacovelli

    I’m excited to have The Gay Leadership Dude™, owner and principal of TopDog Learning Group, Dr. Steve Yacovelli. He talks about his main hustle, his success story and how he managed to ride through those difficult times. We talked more about his hiring process and how his experience has been having fans on his own. 
     
    Dr. Steve Yacovelli has been in the leadership, learning and development, change management, and diversity and inclusion consulting space pretty much his whole career (about twenty-five years). In his consulting experience he’s seen some leaders completely excel in their effectiveness, and some completely crash and burn due to their lack of competence in leadership skills. Steve’s desire was to help both types of leaders be more effective, through coaching, formal and informal training, and just generally being there to support their leadershippiness.
     
    A few years ago, Steve realized that the focus on specifically developing LGBTQ+ Leaders wasn’t really top of mind for many organizations. Sure, there were a few conferences sessions, some random webinars, or even university-sponsored certificate programs, but nothing in a programmatic, cross-association, and at all levels within the leadership savviness scale. In short, a patchwork of effort and not necessarily a cohesive focus or movement.
     
    So, “The Gay Leadership Dude™” was born. It’s Steve’s brand to “come out” and acknowledge the role he wants to take to give back to the LGBTQ+ Community and awesome Allies: to serve as a “lightning rod” of sorts to start a movement to grow LGBTQ+ Leaders and Allies to be even more effective, in a consistent, thoughtful, and mindful manner, especially those up-and-coming Leaders within the broader movement for equality and fairness for all LGBTQ+ people and well beyond.

    Who is Melanie:
    Successful entrepreneur, author, and pilot Melanie Rhora eats, breathes, and sleeps digital marketing to ensure all small businesses can earn a return on every marketing dollar spent. She is the founder of Skyrocket Your Success, where she helps heart-centered entrepreneurs to build profitable businesses online while remaining true to who they are.   She is known as the Queen of Online Business Growth to many of her clients, earning millions online.

Tim is a great guy!

I'm super grateful to have been a guest on this show. Tim is a great guy who is eager to encourage others to live a life far more aligned with what they really want to do. Instead of doing what's profitable & pretending you're passionate about. Tim's show helps you find your passion & then find a way to make it profitable by adding value to others! ❤️

Working From Home 101

This podcast is for anyone who works from home, is thinking about working from home or maybe just wondering if you "have what it takes" to work from home! Being your own boss always sounds like the ideal work situation but as the people on these podcasts will tell you, it takes drive, dedication, and the ability to "just say no" to friends and family members who see you as "available" during the day!
