Our guest on this episode is a City of Philadelphia sanitation worker, which you might not expect would be coming onto a self-made strategies podcast episode, but he’s taken his position and found an innovative and entrepreneurial way to bring awareness to the need for additional PPE and what sanitation workers are going through on a day to day basis, especially because of all of the pressure on the sanitation system because of COVID-19 more people are home, therefore more trash and 200 out of 1100 sanitation workers, according to the union have gotten sick with COVID-19. And the impact of that has weighed heavily on, on the city’s sanitation system.

Here are the Self Made Strategies of Terrill Haigler.

On this episode you will hear Terrill discuss:
  • How the need for PPE for sanitation workers started an online movement
  • Terrill’s passionate advocacy for hazard pay for sanitation workers
  • How Terrill has grown his social media following to over 20k+ followers
  • How Terrill has monetized the account and brand to raise funds for sanitation workers
