Changing Business As Usual To Change The World
Click Here for the resources from our interview with Scott Boyer
“There's something we could do to use a for-profit company in the United States as the financial engine but work with a not-for-profit to provide support to under resourced patients around the world.”-Scott Boyer
Scott Boyer spent 27 years working in the pharmaceutical business and was familiar with the sales of products in all areas of the world. It was during this time that he realized that the wealthiest countries had the most significant sales, but the “rest of the world”, the ROW countries, where the majority of the people live, didn’t have access to life-changing medications or treatment.
Join us as we talk with Scott about his vision for helping people living with epilepsy in under-resourced areas of the world. Through the ROW Foundation, which he founded in 2014, Scott has united the for-profit sector with the not-for-profit sector to make a difference in the lives of those who otherwise could not get medical care.
What you will learn:
- How to make a difference using what you already know.
- How to discern when the time is right to take a risk.
- How to step out in faith in a way that just might change the world.
- How you can support the ROW Foundation
“I want to do whatever I can to give it back, to build this model to help under-resourced people. And basically spread love, be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ and help those less fortunate around the world that, honestly, could be treated very easily with inexpensive medications.” -Scott Boyer
Scott Boyer has almost three decades of experience in the pharmaceutical industry and has led the sales and marketing efforts for numerous branded drugs for Abbott and Bristol-Myers Squibb. Scott has a passion for creating a pharmaceutical model that provides medications to all patients. His education includes a B.S. in Business Administration and Management from Morningside College.

Leaders That Work In Their God-Given Strengths Are High Impact
Click Here for the resources from our interview with Chad
“I really believe God intended work to be a part of a thriving life. A life in which we flourish and experience well-being. It's so important that we work. It's just meaningful. But like anything else we can overdo it, we can do it in some misguided ways and what God intended as a good becomes a harmful aspect of life.” - Chad Hall
Chad Hall felt called to the ministry at the young age of 19 years old. He started off as an associate pastor, became a pastor, and later became a staff member in the Baptist denomination. It was here that he stumbled upon the career of Christian coaching and drawing out other people’s expertise.
On this episode, Chad will discuss strategies on how to be an effective coach. God is not only working in the church, but He is working in the business community and other non-profits. Being a ministry leader often does and should extend behind the church doors into our professional lives. Our outreach is through our “water cooler” conversations, our attitudes in team meetings, and the way we care for our co-workers.
What you will learn:
- The difference between coaching, training and consulting
- That one of the most important leadership skills is the ability to say “no”
- The core issues that challenge the ability to say “no”
- How to balance your own confidence without edging God out
- The importance of being a humble leader
- How to look at your life like a story. What chapter are you in?
“Sometimes we think that work can only be important if I can share Christ and get someone saved. And that's great. I mean, certainly love to see that, workplace evangelism. But I think we also need to be equipped with a vision for how our work really connects to what God's doing in the world.” - Chad Hall

How To Help Them Stay And Thrive!
Click Here for the resources from our interview with Sandra
“There are a lot of professional woman out there that are very, very involved in their local church and they don’t feel included or utilized or acknowledged in any way for their specific gifts within the church.” Sandra Crawford Williamson
As a professional, single woman who didn’t marry until she was 36, Sandra Crawford Williamson encountered 7 churches in 12 years in which she couldn’t find a spot to engage and use her God-given talents. She couldn’t participate in many of the women’s events and felt unseen or “camouflaged”.
71% of women with children under 18 years old are working outside the home. Many of them want to be connected and want to be involved with their local church, but they are having a hard time finding their “place”. Sandra sheds light on the unique needs and talents of professional women and how they can become more engaged in their local church.
Join us as we have Sandra back on the podcast. Her first episode 'What 9/11 Taught Me' is one of our most popular episodes. Sandra is the co-founder of 4word Women and she shares about her journey and her desire to help professional Christian women achieve their God-given potential.
What you will learn
- 4 reasons that working women unplug from their local church.
- 1. The examples from the pulpit don’t pertain to them.
- 2. They don’t feel appreciated or utilized.
- 3. They feel lonely because they don’t fit into one of the “buckets”.
- 4. The women’s events don’t fit into their schedule.
- How to tap into the resources and talents of these professional women.
- How to find times for gatherings and events that fit into their schedule.
- How professional women can be best reached on a typical Sunday morning.
“So there’s a lot of women out there whose gifts are in the work force and whether they choose to be married or to be a mother or not, these women are just as engaged in church as the women that have chosen to use their gifts full time in their home.” - Sandra Crawford Williamson
4WordWomen - Connecting, leading, and supporting professional women to achieve their potential
“Work, Love, and Pray” and the companion Work, Love, Pray Study Guide by Diane Paddison & Sandra Crawford Williamson

“Why I Chose to Be the LastPassenger Off of the ‘Miracle on the Hudson’ Airplane”
Click Here for the resources from our interview with Dave
“I think God needed to have leaders on that plane who not only believed in His mission but also really had to be there to help and support other people, and be a proof statement for other people that good things do happen when people do the right thing.” –Dave Sanderson
Dave Sanderson was not supposed to be on the now infamous US Airways Flight 1549. Yet, the miracles that happened that day and the choices that he made changed his priorities forever. He is now convinced that the downed airliner in the icy Hudson was exactly where he was supposed to be.
Dave Sanderson traveled 100 days a year on the job. He worked hard to make sure his family was well provided for. He wanted to be an achiever. In this episode, he shares how he has turned everything upside down and made giving back and contribution his number one priorities.
“You’ve got 155 people on a plane that didn’t know each other, who didn’t care about each other, all of a sudden pull together to do something that has never been done before. That’s one of the really key things that came out of this is the power of when you have a mission in life and have a commonality of that mission, you can achieve anything.” –Dave Sanderson
You Will Learn:
- How to succeed by doing the right things
- How to harness the power of a shared mission
- How to make the right choices in times of crisis
- How to add value to others—and ENJOY the process!
- Don’t just survive; Thrive!
Dave Sanderson Speaks Website
- Dave speaks around the world and will help you create a culture of servant leadership that yields results
Brace For Impact by Dave Sanderson
- What Passengers of Flight 1549 Want Others to Know About Second Chances: “Brace for impact.” Three simple words that proclaimed to all 150 passengers on board US Airways Flight 1549 on that cold, crisp New York afternoon of January 15, 2009, that their plane was about to go down in the icy Hudson River. Three simple words that churned up their fear that the next two minutes would be their final moments on earth and spurred their most heartfelt, spontaneous prayers. We all know about the stunning tale of survival against all odds that followed. But there is a different, more meaningful, and more timely story that has yet to be fully told. What happened to these passengers when they went home to their families, their homes, their jobs, and everything else familiar but somehow not the same? What has been the real impact, not of a disastrous crash but of a gift of a ‘new’ life? What can any of us learn from the honest and open sharing of ordinary people who came back from the brink of death? Brace for Impact answers these questions and more by taking you inside the hearts, minds, and souls of twenty-five passengers and first responders and what life is like after near death
Dave Sanderson is an inspirational survivor, speaker and author. His thoughts on leadership have made him a nationally sought-out speaker. When US Airways Flight 1549, or “The Miracle on the Hudson,” ditched into the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, Dave Sanderson knew he was exactly where he was supposed to be.
The last passenger off the back of the plane on that fateful day, he was largely responsible for the well-being and safety of others, risking his own life in frigid water to help other passengers off the plane.
Despite the hazards to himself, Sanderson thought only of helping others, and emerged from the wreckage with a mission: to encourage others to do the right thing. In this stirring presentation, Sanderson shares the story of Flight 1549, revealing the inner strength it took to make it through the day, and how teamwork, leadership, and state management can help overcome any obstacle.

An Extraordinary Life Is Not An Either/Or Proposition
Click Here for the resources from our interview with Joel
“Some people will remember the day you were born, some people will remember the day you died, but most are gonna remember that dash, right, that mark in between those two dates. And what is it that you want people to remember?” – Joel Louis
As busy entrepreneurs and business people, it is often a daily struggle to find balance in life. It is vital to stay connected to God, your spouse, your children, and other important people in your life. How do you keep those plates spinning and still find joy in your life?
In today’s episode, we will hear from entrepreneur, Joel Louis who has a show called the Startup Dad Headquarters Podcast. He is a husband, a father, works full time, and is an entrepreneur. Joel will share the importance of being intentional in every aspect of your life. Pursuing your dreams, using your talents, and staying connected with your family doesn’t have to be an either/or proposition if you know how to prioritize.

But we can’t balance everything. It’s a balancing act and we gotta just make sure we’re prioritizing the most important things in our lives, and then when we get some extra time, swing back around.”– Joel Louis

“Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.” Wolfgang von Goethe
What matters most to me and everything that I do is for my family. I am married to a gorgeous NICU nurse and we have three beautiful daughters under the age of 6. I know in no time they will be off to college so my time with them, right now!, means more than anything.
Who am I? Well I like to think of myself as a Fortune 100 Corporate Dad gone ROGUE! After nearly 14 years as a highly successful manager at Intel Corporation I decided, enough was enough, it was time to stop working on someone else’s dream and start working on my own. It took me almost a year and a half of self exploration and lots of sleepless nights to pinpoint my true passions but when the dust settled it was clear! I wanted to build a platform that focused on the extraordinary Father’s of today who are fully engaged in every aspect of their children lives and have also managed to purse their dreams of entrepreneurship in order to leave a legacy behind.
