Listen Live on Friday on AMFM 247 Radio!

Gabrielle Taylor – Managing Partner at Taylor Strategy Partners and Author of Legacy of Wisdom

Gabrielle Taylor

Gabrielle Taylor

Gabrielle Taylor leads a strategic management consultancy based in Littleton, Colorado and is the author of “LEGACY OF WISDOM.” The book, she explains, argues that “Wisdom is not just about having experience, but also about paying attention to what your experience is telling you. If you want to gain wisdom from experience, you have to ask more questions of others and of yourself.” Wisdom may come organically due to the curveballs life throws, but it also comes by way of what we learn from others. Her path to wisdom was built on the foundation of her Grandmother Valentine’s lessons which are outlined in simple — yet effective notes throughout the book. “Many of today’s corporate leaders put expediency before such values as creativity, quality, or loyalty,” says Gabrielle. “I have been saddened over the past three decades to see how many businesses have decided that laying people off is an expedient way to improve their bottom line, as opposed to developing new revenue streams when possible. This is not only bad for the laid-off employees and their families, but also bad for companies.” In this interview, we talk about her management philosophies, but also the projects she has done, especially in the energy space.

Mark Carpenter – Senior Director Communications at the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries

Mark Carpenter

Mark Carpenter

Mark Carpenter has nearly two decades of public affairs and public relations experience covering the fields of recycling, homeland security, healthcare, energy, foundation management, and more. He has worked at Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) for the last three and a half years as a spokesperson and Senior Director of Communications, handling public outreach initiatives. Mark is a veteran of Capitol Hill, having worked in both the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. He also has experience on a number of political campaigns, trade associations, and grassroots advocacy organizations. ISRI is dedicated to spreading the truth about recycling. Many myths and misinformation exist about recycling. When Americans were presented with a list of statements, 4 true and 4 false, and asked to select those they believe to be true, less than half were able to identify those which were actually true. Regardless of fact or fiction, a new survey released by the ISRI and conducted online by Harris Poll, shows that U.S. adults do not accept common statements made about the recycling industry to be true. Over 2 in 5 Americans say detailed information about recycling is not readily available and that they have to seek it out. Mark sets us straight!

Stephanie Weeks

Stephanie Weeks

Stephanie Weeks is the bestselling author of Mortgage Peace: A Proven Formula for Smooth On-Time Closing. The book gives readers the tools needed to help you better understand the mortgage process and have a better experience, espcially us entrepreneurs. Stephanie wants to help give you peace of mind during the very stressful time of buying a house. About 70 percent of mortgage loans do not close on time or are denied at the last minute. This whole process leaves people feeling helpless; in fact, the majority of consumers have a negative experience trying to finance a home. But Stephanie wants to change that! She lifts the veil in the book and educates people about the process, so they know the right questions to ask and what is going on every step of the way. Stephanie has been a mortgage lender for 13 years and she has seen every mistake in the book that prevents people from closing on time from people focusing ONLY on the mortgage rate to people assuming that just because the loan is pre-approved that the obstacles are gone. Stephanie would like to share her insight into the process and get you into your dream home.

Redd Horrocks

Several years ago, a friend asked Redd Horrocks if she would mind lending her voice to a video game character for a development project that he was working on.

Since that fateful weekend, Redd has lent her voice to documentaries, phone systems, commercials, demo videos, rock albums, audio books, app previews and many other projects. She hails from South-East England; home of rolling green hills, chestnut trees, and unlimited pubs. Several years ago she moved to Atlanta, Georgia and became a Southern girl for a while. Now, Redd lives in Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada. Her accent can swing from proper English to Southern Belle to standard American, as well as many characters in between. She loves to work and loves to be challenged. And Fiverr provides both for her, and a great income!
