Learn the five most commonly used, but least helpful phrases you should not say and what to say instead!]
On April 16, 2009, Kim Hamer watched her 44-year-old husband take his last breath. During his illness and after his death, she was amazed by the helpful ways their co-workers, bosses, friends, and family supported them. Kim started calling their kind actions "acts of love."
After the death of her husband, Kim, an HR leader, noticed that managers received no guidance when navigating cancer or death on their teams. She saw how their lack of helpful tools and guidance was costly. It negatively affected employee engagement, increased turnover rates, and lowered productivity.
She set out to change that. Combining her personal experience with her professional knowledge and leadership skills, she launched 100 Acts of Love.43m | Oct 19, 2022

- Building a Consulting Company from Scratch.
A conversation with Rob Broadhead, a professional software developer based in Nashville, Tennessee. His passions are broad, but he is often drawn to both sides of coaching and mentor relationships.
This led him to launch the Develpreneur.com site in 2016 and add a podcast in 2017. Then he added a YouTube channel in 2019. The focus of the blog and episodes is to help developers advance in their career by learning from his successes and mistakes.
He founded RB Consulting as a software development and implementation consulting company. However, after witnessing a significant number of poorly planned and designed projects, he altered the business focus. The primary focus is on helping customers put together well-designed project plans and navigate the vast sea of technology. This includes building teams/departments to address IT needs in the future as well as today. There is also still a software development wing of the company and implementation consulting.24m | Oct 7, 2022
