In today’s episode, Roger Nairn, the Co-Founder and CEO of JAR Audio joins us to talk about his journey in business. Roger helps companies and brands grow their revenue, accelerate their impact, and make meaningful connections with their audience by producing podcasts.

 

Roger is a lateral thinker, problem solver, strategist, and finder of new ways. He believes in the power of the happy customer and spent years managing client relationships and building brands for world-famous agencies like DDB and Cossette.

 

Throughout his career, he’s found himself working with a number of industry giants, including (but certainly not limited to) Netflix, Expedia, Walmart, Nordstrom, Lamborghini, Cineplex, Four Seasons Plus, and Vancouver’s own lululemon.

 

On top of all of this, he followed his passions to become a Board Member for TEDxVancouver and has recently become an expert-level toddler wrangler through the magic of parenthood. When he’s not at work, he likes to golf, read, and—no surprises here—binges on the occasional podcast.

Today we have Barbara Ramirez, an Online Business Manager, Productivity Coach, and Co-Founder of My Virtual Partnr, to talk about her success story in working and growing her business online and how she helps her clients optimize their time with the services she offers. She also shares the challenges she has encountered while growing her business and the tools she used to jump over the hurdles successfully.

 

Barbara, co-founded My Virtual Partnr in 2015 to put together their corporate and strategic planning background and expertise and create a simple strategic planning program for Small Businesses, like yours, that are seeking to scale in business. They have enjoyed creating this roadmap to get work done for our business, and now they are giving it to you because they want you to succeed in your business.

I’m excited to have The Gay Leadership Dude™, owner and principal of TopDog Learning Group, Dr. Steve Yacovelli. He talks about his main hustle, his success story and how he managed to ride through those difficult times. We talked more about his hiring process and how his experience has been having fans on his own. 

 

Dr. Steve Yacovelli has been in the leadership, learning and development, change management, and diversity and inclusion consulting space pretty much his whole career (about twenty-five years). In his consulting experience he’s seen some leaders completely excel in their effectiveness, and some completely crash and burn due to their lack of competence in leadership skills. Steve’s desire was to help both types of leaders be more effective, through coaching, formal and informal training, and just generally being there to support their leadershippiness.

 

A few years ago, Steve realized that the focus on specifically developing LGBTQ+ Leaders wasn’t really top of mind for many organizations. Sure, there were a few conferences sessions, some random webinars, or even university-sponsored certificate programs, but nothing in a programmatic, cross-association, and at all levels within the leadership savviness scale. In short, a patchwork of effort and not necessarily a cohesive focus or movement.

 

So, “The Gay Leadership Dude™” was born. It’s Steve’s brand to “come out” and acknowledge the role he wants to take to give back to the LGBTQ+ Community and awesome Allies: to serve as a “lightning rod” of sorts to start a movement to grow LGBTQ+ Leaders and Allies to be even more effective, in a consistent, thoughtful, and mindful manner, especially those up-and-coming Leaders within the broader movement for equality and fairness for all LGBTQ+ people and well beyond.
