Tomorrow we launch our 30th podcast episode. It’s been an interesting experience to hear about the non-linear career path our guests have followed. All of our guests have started in a different career spot but the ability they have to handle adversity, overcome failure and difficult scenarios, are similarities all of our guests have in common.
At the beginning of each episode our host, Mark Agostinelli, asks several rapid fire questions. Our guests share their favorite curse word, first job and favorite quotes. The quotes are an interesting story for most. Some have well known quotes, others have less known quotes but poignant, heartfelt messages. And the story of why those quotes resonate with them is usually interesting and shared with our audience.
For many, when they think of career paths they automatically think of people in corporate America and we do have some successful folks who have shared their stories but we have included people from all walks of life as guests. From photographer and filmmaker Chris Cardoza to Pianist, Composer, Arranger, Orchestrator Steven Feifke, to Entrepreneur and Corporate Dropout Laura Thompson, these guests educated us on their industry and shared challenges they have overcome.
