    Leadership with CEO Andrea Funk of Cambridge Lee Industries

    Leadership with CEO Andrea Funk of Cambridge Lee Industries

    Andrea Funk, CEO of Cambridge-Lee Industries, is undoubtedly one of the most accomplished women in manufacturing.  She represents a very small percentage (less than one-half of 1%) of manufacturing leadership and is passionate about closing this gender gap for a more inclusive business environment.

    In this episode, we talk all about leadership.

    Andrea shares an early leadership moment in which her mother’s guiding principle shaped her sense of responsibility as a leader.  Whether she is on the factory floor, in the C-suite or at home with her family; Andrea brings her authentic, confident and courageous self to every situation.

    She will inspire you to take every opportunity in life and your career to learn and grow as a leader. Because playing small in this world is not an option.

    Please enjoy this conversation with Andrea Funk . . .

    Turn Your Dreams of Entrepreneurship into Reality with CEO Sharon Leaks Morgan

    Turn Your Dreams of Entrepreneurship into Reality with CEO Sharon Leaks Morgan

    Leaders are people who make things happen.

    For some of you, this may be the podcast episode that will encourage you to turn your dreams of entrepreneurship into reality.

    It has nothing to do with the size of your business or industry and everything to do with my guest, who identifies one leadership quality (and more) which attributes to her success.  All the knowledge in the world can’t make a good leader but rather it’s the care for the world around you that makes the difference.

    Sharon Leaks Morgan is the CEO of Philadelphia based S&B Organic Cleaning Solutions, a woman-owned commercial and residential cleaning company that uses organic products.   Founded in 2007 with only one employee, she now employs a team of more than twenty.

    She was a recipient of the Women’s Business Development Center of Philadelphia “2016 Sweet Success Business Owner.”

    Please enjoy this conversation with Sharon Leaks Morgan . . .

    How To Succeed In Leadership with Skip Johnson

    How To Succeed In Leadership with Skip Johnson

    Earlier this year I was encouraged (or honestly was pushed beyond my comfort zone) to start this leadership podcast. The experience has certainly been daring at times and amazing.  I discovered that I really love doing this show and I love all of my guests.  It’s a gift and an honor for me that each and every person that comes onto the podcast reserves their time to share their expertise and wisdom with me and my listeners.

    And just once you feel like an episode flows in a magical way.  It’s that guest who affects you for the better and truly makes a difference in your life.  He even allows our conversation to caress vulnerability and pain to inspire the good in life. 

    Today’s episode features Skip Johnson, Vice President of Operations Gold’s Gym based in Douglasville, Georgia, business leader, author of Grateful for Everything:  Learning, Living and Loving the Great Game of Life, and really so much more.  Skip shares his leadership principles for empowering your team and others.  His commitment to making others feel better is instrumental to his business and personal success.  

    In this episode we talk about what you can do to be at the top of your game, business, life, and much more. This is one of my favorite podcasts and I’m grateful to publish it.

    I hope you enjoy.
