Bruce Boise: Cold Comfort - One Man’s Struggle to Stop the Illegal Marketing of Powerful Opioid Drugs and Save Lives - 308

Bruce Boise: Cold Comfort - One Man’s Struggle to Stop the Illegal Marketing of Powerful Opioid Drugs and Save Lives - 308

Bruce Boise talks with me about his book Cold Comfort - One Man's Struggle to stop the Illegal Marketing of Powerful Opioid Drugs and Save Lives. This is episode 308 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Bruce Boise, having worked as a top pharmaceuticals sales manager for 24 years, did not intend to become a whistle blower nor did he fully understand what he was getting himself into when he encouraged his company to stop illegally marketing off-label use of prescription drugs. 

He ended up losing his job, getting black-balled by the industry, becoming homeless after going through a million dollars in assets and savings, and fearing all of his sacrifices and efforts would lead to nothing being done to the company that contributed to our nation’s deadly opioid overdose epidemic.

His story serves as inspiration to all future whistle blowers while warning the nation of the dangerous practices of the pharmaceutical and medical industries and the shortcomings of the FDA to adequately protect the American public.

“Big Pharma all too willingly accepts fines, even ones in the hundreds of millions of dollars, as merely the price of doing business when it knows it can make tens of billions from illegally marketing its products,” asserts Boise. “This has to stop now – before others die.”

Boise earned a Bachelor of Arts from The Ohio State University and did graduate work in Geo Engineering at Akron Community.

Bruce lived in Melbourne and Key West, Florida for a decade but the Ohio native has lived most his life in Columbus, Ohio.

Brian Weisfeld: Empowering Girls, The Startup Squad, and the Latest Book in the Series -Face the Music - 306

Brian Weisfeld talks with us about his focus on empowering girls (and all children) on pursuing their dreams, he shares his book series called The Startup Squad (which teaches entrepreneurial principals in a fun way), and his latest book in the series - Face the Music. This is episode 306 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

 

Brian Weisfeld has been building businesses his entire life. In elementary school, he bought 95 pounds of gummy bears and hired his friends to sell them. As a teen, he made and sold mixed tapes (ask your parents what those are), sorted baseball cards (he got paid in cards), babysat four-days-a-week after school, and sold nuts and dried fruit (and more gummy bears) in a neighborhood store.

 

As an adult, Brian helped build well-known, billion-dollar companies including IMAX Corporation and Coupons.com. Then he watched his oldest daughter struggle to sell Girl Scout cookies and he also became frustrated with some of the less-than-empowering influences he saw for his two girls. So he bought a copy of Writing Children’s Books for Dummies and decided to write a novel series to inspire girls to open their first lemonade stands or other businesses and to empower them with an entrepreneurial mindset. The first book in The Startup Squad series was released by Macmillan in May, 2019 and the second book - Face The Music has just been released in May 2020.

 

Brian is the Founder and Chief Squad Officer of The Startup Squad, an initiative dedicated to empowering girls to realize their potential and follow their dreams, whatever their passion. The Startup Squad is his first book and is co-authored with Nicole C. Kear. Brian lives in Silicon Valley and can often be found eating gummy bears with his wife while watching his two daughters sell lemonade from the end of their driveway.
