Jaliyla talks about her life as a former Supervisor of Mathematics in the East Orange School District in New Jersey, where she wrote the curriculum and ensured that teachers had the necessary resources to perform their duties. However, out of love for working directly with children, Jaliyla decided to establish her current company to, in her words, “create pipelines of students that aren't afraid of math.”

    Jaliyla details the different strategies that they are using to make math fun for kids, and why it’s crucial to also be working with parents at home. She also goes into how they navigated the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, and why going back to the pre-pandemic setup is yet another challenge that she is eager to resolve.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    It all started with wanting to work with kids
    Pivoting from the challenges of COVID-19
    From Common Core to NJSLS
    How to make math fun for students
    It all starts at home with the parents

    Jaliyla: "Because of my mathematical abilities, I see problems as something to get through. And so for COVID, it was, alright, how do we become nimble? What do we do to ensure that the company still lasts?"

    Jaliyla: "We literally try our best to make things hands-on, but bringing the math in the forefront so that they can see the benefit and why it's important. Because we always want to answer the question why it's important. We always want to answer the question with students like 'why do I need this anyway?' that's what they always ask."

    Jaliyla: "It starts at home with parents and making sure that their child knows that they're in this together, that they can be very successful in math if they continue to persevere."

    An Army Man In Real Estate with Luis Sanchez-Santana

    An Army Man In Real Estate with Luis Sanchez-Santana

    In this episode of the Dr. B Show Podcast, Dr. B talks to the Vice President of Mortgage Lending at Guaranteed Rate, Luis Sanchez-Santana. Having signed up at 17, Luis learned the ropes of leadership from his military training and continues to apply those skills in real estate and as training officer in the New Jersey Army National Guard. Luis also talks about the main reasons why many Americans nowadays are having a difficult time purchasing property, and why he thinks the currently volatile real estate market will stabilize itself eventually.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    An army man in real estate
    How being a soldier helped Luis become a leader
    The market will eventually correct itself
    Why people are finding it difficult to purchase homes
    Monitor your credit two years before purchasing property
    Attend a first-time homebuyer's seminar as soon as you can
    There's no one-size fits all profile for clients

    QUOTES

    Luis: "I went through different stages of leadership, but every stage taught me something new. It taught me to be adaptable and understand that no matter where you go, it's always about the people. Regardless of what business organization or anything you are in, you always gotta treat people as people first before anything else."

    Luis: "The biggest thing that keeps people from actually qualifying for a home is credit. And that's just because people don't realize that they have to monitor their credit up until they are ready to buy and then they realize that their credit isn't where it used to be."

    Luis: "If you're planning to buy a house, you should probably start looking at your credit, your income, your assets about two years out and figuring out the stuff you need to do in order to buy a house. Don't wait until the day that you're ready to buy a house. Do it prior to, and be ready to buy a house when the time comes."

    There’s More Than One Career Path with Randy Gomez

    There’s More Than One Career Path with Randy Gomez

    In this episode of the Dr. B Show Podcast, Dr. B talks to educator and entrepreneur Randy Gomez. Randy is the CEO and Founder of the Academy of Young Leaders, a proactive learning program that utilizes experiential workshops to provide high-school students with career clarity.

    Randy talks about the need to expose kids to more career options such as trade schools, as opposed to just going to the 4-year college diploma route. She also talks about her decision to leave her 9 to 5 job at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic to become an entrepreneur.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    We need more tradespeople
    Why high school students are often not college-ready
    Trade schools are making a comeback
    Turning to entrepreneurship during the pandemic
    Addressing the pain points of high schools
    Exposing the kids to more career options
    How to know if you've got that entrepreneur in you

    QUOTES

    Randy: "The whole stigma behind that everyone has to go to a four-year college, it has to stop. Trade schools are amazing. We all need a plumber, we all need an electrician. The world has a place for everyone and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that."

    Randy: "When you learn about these things and when you hear that this is how the money is being split up, you understand that there's a lack of resources. And these educators are truly doing the best that they can with what they've got. They're literally like the song said, 'tryin' to make a dollar out of 15 cents.'"

    Randy: "When the universe aligns with what you do on a daily basis, you really do not work another day of your life because it is all fun and play and you're just happy to be making money on the way."

    Randy: "That's a huge pain point, that right now the education system cannot keep up with the technology and what's happening in the world of finance. So if we're able to provide that workshop for the parents for their peace of mind, and now for the educator to know that yes, I'm teaching social studies, math, and all that, but this program is covering that part of the education that they need to know today."
