KHALIAH GUILLORY is on a quest to fuel her passion and fulfill her purpose. At the core, she is a Performance Productivity Expert, Lover of Humanity, and Philanthropist. These are a few words that describe her contribution to the universe.

Buoyed by her passion to inspire others by means of speaking, Khaliah founded KOG & Company (KOG) in 2015. KOG, is a people empowerment platform built to encourage the masses to operate outside of their fears and summon up the unmitigated gall to courageously pursue their purpose and passions in life. As Khaliah uses her voice for life-transformation success, her most thought provoking talks are “Unleash Your Dopeness™, “Diversity Deposits”, and “Mogul in Training”.

Khaliah’s expertise and vast experiences as a leader working for Fortune 500 companies have awarded her Houston’s Next Generation of Leaders Award. This award recognizes professionals who demonstrate leadership within their communities. She graduated from the University of Central Florida, Nicholson School of Communication with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. In addition to all of the greatness that has transpired in her favor, 2017 seems to be Khaliah’s year. Khaliah has assumed a pertinent role as an Adjunct Professor in the MBA program at the University of Houston – Downtown and was elected an officer for the Advisory Board of the Texas Diversity Council.

As Khaliah’s destiny is taking flight in more ways than one, her winning personality and candid take on diversity in life have landed her a spot hosting the Startup Master’s Podcast and a contributor for the international media platform, the Huffington Post. Because Khaliah understands that every human being was born with a certain measure of tenacity and strength, her mantra for 2017 is: “Unleash Your Dopeness™” with the intention of inspiring the masses to unlock the greatness inside of them.

TRISTAN TARPLEY is the founder of Tarpley Holdings, which includes Market(r), Influenc(r), and Produc(r).

According to Tristan, "When growth-stage businesses look for marketing (product development, advertising, positioning, branding, etc), they typically do 1 of 3 things:

1) Build it in house from day one.
They pool so many resources insourcing that they then don’t have the gas to put into the car, so to speak.

2) They hire their friend that “does marketing.”

3) They hire an agency.
Agencies are kind of like Tylenol. Tylenol is great for its particular use case, but not for all use cases. And you don’t want to take too much Tylenol.

My businesses enable a 4th option:
Playing the role of the vertically-integrated doctor, pharmacy, and radiology department to diagnose, prescribe, and monitor and optimize—at a fraction of the cost."

COACH JOSH SMALLEY, a hometown kid from Bridge City, realized his dream of coaching when he accepted the freshman coaching position at his high school alma mater in 1999, shortly after graduating from college.  He would eventually accept his first head coaching position at nearby Orangefield in the late school year of 2012.

“Coaching young kids is the best profession this side of heaven I can think of,” says Smalley, who is entering his second full season as head football coach and athletic director at Orangefield.

“Working with young kids and seeing them grow as players and also outside the classroom is an awesome thing.”

She’s one of the best.

Listen in as we reminisce about “the good ol’ days,” chat about kids, teaching, and changing lives.
