    348: Sheldon Stokes, JAH Law

    348: Sheldon Stokes, JAH Law

    Like Jimmy McGill said in Better Call Saul: Lawyers; we’re like health insurance. You hope you never need it, but man oh man… not having it? No. 



    Not all lawyering is as strange and unusual as it’s made it out to be in TV and movies. And that lawyer who handled your real estate closing is probably not the same one you’d call if you were in a car crash, selling your family business, or drafting a new will… Or in jail. 



    That’s where relationship with a multi-disciplined law firm comes in, giving you access to a wide range of services and specialties. 



    Johnston, Allison, and Hord is one of Charlotte’s oldest law firms. With more than 50 attorneys in Charlotte and access to national and international expertise – they’re right sized to still provide a personal touch.



    Sheldon Stokes is a partner at Johnson, Alison, and Hord – and she’s our guest today on the award-winning BrandBuilders Podcast.

    347: Mark Boone, Festival in the Park

    Like the cherry blossoms blooming or the first pitch at the Knight’s games… the King’s Drive Art Walk is arguably one of Charlotte’s rites of spring. For more than a dozen years, the folks at Festival in the Park have hosted this unique event that showcases local and national talent – and it’s all free! 



    Put this on your calendar now: The 14th edition of the King’s Drive Art Walk is May 4th and 5th. 



    Mark Boone is the board president of the Festival in the Park. He’s our guest today on the award-winning BrandBuilders Podcast.

    346: Kenya Joseph, Hearts & Hands Food Pantry

    346: Kenya Joseph, Hearts & Hands Food Pantry

    Here’s a number that’s pretty sobering: More than 35% of households with children were considered “food insecure” in Mecklenburg County. Meaning, they did NOT know if food would be available from day to day.



    Mercifully, there are organizations that are working to help change those numbers. But as Charlotte continues to get bigger and bigger, that need continues to grow with it. 



    Hearts and Hands Food Pantry is one of the only independent food pantries in the area, having served tens of thousands of folks in the Charlotte region since 2017.



    Kenya Joseph is with Hearts and Hands, and she’s our guest today on the BrandBuilders Podcast.

    345: Erin Santos-Primis, Isabella Santos Foundation

    345: Erin Santos-Primis, Isabella Santos Foundation

    “After an exhausting 16+ years, the founder of the Isabella Santos Foundation needed to make a change. Instead of folding, she’s planning a big expansion.”



    With THAT headline in The Charlotte Ledger, we knew we’d have to get our friend, Erin Santos-Primis to tell us what this is all about. 



    For folks who don’t know, the Isabella Santos Foundation has donated more than $8 million dollars to cancer trials, research, and patient care. Most of that money, coming from donations from folks like you and me, and companies of all sizes. 



    And, now it’s time for something more… Erin Santos-Primis, welcome BACK to the BrandBuilders Podcast.

    344: Jay Seago, Helen Adams Realty

    If you’ve noticed Charlotte streets, restaurants, schools, etc., getting more crowded… it’s not your imagination. You’d literally have to be living under a rock to have missed the news that 100-plus people moving here every day! 



    Charlotte is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, and the real estate market here is forecast to be the hottest in the US. With all the new people moving to town, that gave one local realtor an idea. 



    Jay Seago from Helen Adams is our guest today on the BrandBuilders Podcast.

    343: Craig Barbour, Roots Food Company

    From there it was a food truck, event catering, a café in South End, and now a multi-brand food and beverage business. Craig is one of those people – and brands – that we can say, “we knew them when!” He’s our guest today on the award-winning BrandBuilders Podcast.

Great Conversations Scott and Brian

What I love most about Brand Builders is the free flowing conversations and allow space for the magic of the moment. While keeping focused on the overall theme, Brian and Scott dance with their guests to dig into issues, solutions and perspectives that matter.
