    The Face of Hope with Heidi Floyd

    The Face of Hope with Heidi Floyd

    Have you ever felt hopeless at work? You should meet our new friend Heidi Floyd and hear her incredible story. 
    Heidi says, “Most of us have a life 90% of the world isn’t fortunate enough to have and somehow we feel hopeless. This young man didn’t realize how incredibly blessed he was - with his head down, just thinking about himself, he couldn’t see all the good things.” 
    “There is love all around us. There is hope all around us. But if all we’re focused on is just getting through the day, we’re going to miss it.”
    “But when you examine them closely, sometimes the little things can turn out to be the biggest gifts in your life.”
    Heidi has welded together over a decade of non-profit management experience but more importantly, she has tackled some of life’s ups and downs head-on. Not only is she a breast cancer survivor, but has leveraged that experience to become a nationally recognized patient support activist, helping some of the largest companies in the world be supportive of families going on their cancer journey. 
    She has served as the “voice of the patient” for myriad organizations including Ford, Google, the US Department of Defense, the American Cancer Society, and Susan G. Komen, and has been published in Forbes, Huffington Post, CNN, and in The NY Times.
    I say every episode is created for one person out there who needs it, and today that might be you. I can't wait for you to hear it.

    Building The Case For a Raise with Jeffery Dingle

    Building The Case For a Raise with Jeffery Dingle

    Should we each be loyal enough to our company to have a straight up conversation about compensation with our boss or manager?
    Jeffery Dingle teaches us, “You can't just let that conversation happen to you.” You have to create a case for your career, for your raise, in your day to day activity. You have to understand how you fit in an organization and how your performance impacts other people's performance. And that allows your boss to see you as a major cog in the engine that's driving the whole business.
    You cannot be that guy or gal that’s just showing up, doing the same thing every day, and then expect to make more just because you've hung around for a year. If you're producing the same value for the company today that you produced 52 weeks ago, and nothing's improving, nothing's expanding, and you're not bringing more value… 
    Jeffery Dingle is the VP of Global Strategic Sales for Jacobs Engineering Group headquartered in Atlanta, GA.  In his nearly 13 years in engineering, he's worked on projects like the 1996 Olympic venues and infrastructure, the Hartsfield Jackson, Atlanta international airport, and dozens of major transportation and water capital improvement programs.

Jerome Shaw 🤲🏾 ,

Great host with actionable advice!

Listened to episode “Building Your Personal Brand at Work”. Love your intro, so hype! Got me in the mood to learn strategies and skills. Great practical tips given here!

Enjoyed this interview with you and Terri Lynn. She definitely knows her stuff and gives sage wisdom on adding value. Love her definition for personal brand “knowing who you are and who you want to be”. Really resonated with the segment on following your excitement. That way, it does not feel like work.

You are a great interviewer and host! You ask great questions that allow your guests to dive deeper. Gave me some nice tips on raising my awareness when it comes to building a brand. Love how you talk about helping someone when you need help as, when we lift others, we too are lifted.

This is an awesome podcast! Thank you for putting out this content during such a challenging time. Engaged my mind and provided plenty of actionable advice. Recommend this to anyone who is interested in advancing themselves in their career.
