    Assessing the Life of Jeff Taylor - Local Leaders:The Podcast S4E10 Livingston Parish Tax Assessor

    Assessing the Life of Jeff Taylor - Local Leaders:The Podcast S4E10 Livingston Parish Tax Assessor

    Jeff Taylor has served in public life for 2 decades. As the Livingston Parish Assessor he has instituted several programs for the betterment of the parish such as the Assess the Need program to assist children in need with school supplies. He has also instituted discounts on assessments related to the great flood of 2016 and has been very public in announcing help for those who have been affected financially by Covid-19 and the Assessors office willingness to work with those people, along with many other programs you may or may not be familiar with.  When I sat down with Jeff Taylor for Local Leaders:The Podcast I was familiar with the programs and his non-profit but I was unfamiliar with the man away from the Assessors office. I was honored to learn more about his early life, his family, his faith, and his future. Jeff has PASSION and one thing I can assure you of is that in this informative, sometimes emotional, and sometimes comical episode of Local Leaders:The Podcast is worth the watch and your sure to enjoy it!

    Discovering JM Boutique's Passion for Fashion on Local Leaders:The Podcast S4 E9

    Discovering JM Boutique's Passion for Fashion on Local Leaders:The Podcast S4 E9

    The road to business ownership many times comes with twist and turns. Often time business owners are faced with a decision, follow what their heart is telling them to do or continue taking the "safe" road. Megan Goudeau terms this as taking the "Jump". With her very supportive husband Kyle by her side and behind her 100% in 2019 Megan did just that and launched her business JM Boutique in Denham Springs, LA. In this interview we go in depth with Megan to learn about that decision ( She signed her lease just hours before delivering her 2nd child ) The thought process when the Covid-19 Pandemic arrived just 6 months after opening, and how she persevered through adapting and innovating her business to continue to serve her dedicated clientele. What I learned (and will you too) is that with a positive attitude, a strong support system,  a unique aptitude for business, and a spouse that believes in you, you cannot only survive but thrive regardless of the circumstances.

    The Struggle to Offer Health Insurance for Small Businesses & How A.J. Gallagher Can Help! Local Leaders S4 E8

    What is the largest hurdle to overcome when hiring good people for small business owners? If you said Health Insurance coverage you are correct.The sad fact is most Local Small businesses struggle to compete with regard to the benefits that public companies can offer. Health Insurance is also the #1 reason most people never take a chance on owning their own business, they just cannot give up the coverage they receive working for in most cases large corporations. If this sounds familiar you will want to watch the next episode of Local Leaders:The Podcast as Sean Aucoin of Gallagher Insurance will be discussing these topics and giving some helpful tips and advice as well as covering options #SmallBusiness owners have with regard to getting coverage for themselves and their employees. #LocalLeadersThePodcast #LivingstonParish #SmallBusinessPodcast #HealthInsuranceForBusiness
