Ep. 5 - John Miller
This week's guest, John Miller, introduces himself as a "preacher's kid." John's ministry is his law firm, Rock Solid Law, which specializes in small business representation, estate planning, real estate, and probate and trust administration. His community-first mentality has shaped Rock Solid's coronavirus response, in which the firm has given away over $10,000 in services. But John isn't just a lawyer; you may see him rocking out with the BayStreet Band on a local stage!

Ep. 3 - Mike Getka
This week, we spoke with Mike Getka, the Director of Business Development for JDog Florida East. JDog isn't just a junk removal company. JDog brings opportunities to veterans in need and finds a new home for the majority of the items they acquire through their removal services. Fittingly, Mike shares with us what it means to give back as a business leader and how to run a community-first operation.
Ep. 2 - Jennifer O'Neal
On our second episode, we had the pleasure to sit down with Jennifer O'Neal, of MosquitoNix Jacksonville. If anyone knows the ups and downs of running a family business, it's Jennifer and Melissa. Listen to their takes on work-life balance and how to roll with the punches as an entrepreneur.
The Rave Stage, Ep.1 – Jade Stanley
What makes some businesses boom and others flop? The stakes are high for entrepreneurs, and there's no single path to success. But that doesn't mean we can't learn something from the business owners who have thrived over the years.
On our first episode, we were honored to sit down with Jade Stanley, CEO of All About You Staffing. Despite her meteoric rise in the staffing and events industries, Jade is incredibly humble about the reach of her work. As busy as she is, she continually gives back to her community. In addition to managing professional development training for Clara White Mission, she regularly organizes mentorship and networking opportunities for fellow entrepreneurs.
