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 conference 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: to serve as a “lightning rod” of sorts to start a movement to grow LGBTQ+ Leaders 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.You can find Steve Yacovelli on:Website: can find That Entrepreneur Life on:Website: the show (

(It’s still up for debate as to which she started first!) Music has always been a way her family connects. When she was little, her dad would pull out his trusty guitar and her mom would sing to her and her sister at bedtime.Fast forward to 1993. Through gaming (Dungeons and Dragons, to be exact), Jodi was introduced to “Filk” music—the music that’s played at science fiction/fantasy conventions. In 1994, she joined two friends from the fandom world to form an acoustic band called Urban Tapestry. In their time together, they’ve headlined at music conventions in Canada, the U.S., and Europe.Jodi's first voiceover work was in 1995 when she spent a year in a volunteer position with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) creating books on tape. And by tape, she means real “tape.”—reel to reel, baby. Several years later, she took the leap to venture out on her own, and boy, has it been rewarding.Jodi's done voiceover work in the healthcare, corporate, hospitality, political, and non-profit sectors, among others. No matter your specific need, know that she is a reliable partner in your business and she provides super quick turn-arounds – because she knows how fast your business moves.

It’s a modern take on the traditional swaddle blanket. Baby’s arms are inserted into specially-designed armholes and swaddled, and a Velcro attachment helps keep them tightly wrapped while making it difficult to undo themselves. The tight, cozy wrap reminds them of the comfort they felt when they were inside their mother’s womb, which, in turn, helps them sleep longer. Our innovative, patent-pending design is so effective, it is doctor recommended! The snugababe swaddle will keep your baby cozy, comfortable, and safe all night long, all while taking out the guesswork of how to swaddle correctly every time. And yes, that means even in the middle of the night when you’re bleary-eyed, exhausted, and need to put yourself down for a nap.You can find Norani on:Website: can find That Entrepreneur Life on:Website: the show (
