With molecular biology and aerospace engineering degrees from MIT and an M.D.from Harvard, successful entrepreneur and philanthropist Peter Diamandis, founded the X-Prize Foundation to award up-to $10-million prizes to scientists that could make serious inroads into the world's greatest problems: poverty, energy, disease, etc. 

Not surprisingly, he has received all sorts of proposals. He has synthesized what he learned plus his current thinking and predictios in the just-published Simon & Schuster book, Abundance: The Future is Better than You Think.

Brian Jones' goal was never to run his own business. He always wanted an 8 to 5 job with benefits, and to retire as early as possible. That's not quite how it worked out. And no, it's not the typical rags to riches story.

He'll tell his story on Sunday, March 25, plus you can call in for a three-minute career makeover, on Work with Marty Nemko, Sundays from 11 am to noon on 91.7 FM, KALW San Francisco.

I've had 3,900 career coaching clients. The experience I had with Jeffrie Givens is my most memorable.  She'll be on the show this Sunday, Mar. 11.

Plus, as usual, I'll do Three-Minute Workovers on callers. So if you or someone you care about has a work-related problem, feel free to call into the show.

On March 4 at 11 am, I'll talk with Margaret Wehrenberg, author of The 10 Best-Ever Anxiety Management Techniques Workbook on anxiety in today's anxious workplace. 

That plus call-in three-minute Workovers, on Work with Marty Nemko, Sundays from 11 am to noon, on KALW, 91.7 FM.

Whether it''s your supervisees, coworkers, a friend, your kid, grandkid, romantic partner, or a sports team, we all coach. Alas, too often, we fail to help the other person as much as we'd like.

Many people think of voiceover as an easy, cool career. But how realistic is it that one can make a living at it--or even enough to pay back the cost of the training and demo?

On Sunday, Feb. 19, I'll ask such questions of Elaine Clark, author of the just-published third edition of There's Money Where Your Mouth Is: A Complete Insider's Guide to Earning Income and Building a Career in Voice-Overs.

That's on Work with Marty Nemko, Sundays from 11 am to noon, here on KALW, 91.7 FM.

 Can you work effectively while drunk or high? Think you might have a substance abuse problem? What if you think your supervisee or coworker does? When can and can't employers require?  My guest Paula Wilbourne, who runs a national substance abuse program for the Veterans Administration and I will discuss those questions. And as usual, you can call-in for a three-minute Workover--I'll try to help you solve your career or self-employment problem. On Work with Marty Nemko, Sundays from 11 am to noon on KALW,91.7 FM, San Francisco.

Ever wonder whether your boss is being honest with you? Your supervisee? Wondering what someone is really feeling?

My guest this Sunday on Work with Marty Nemko is Joe Navarro, author of What Every BODY is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed-Reading People.

Plus, as usual, you can call in for a three-minute Workover. Whatever career problem ails you or someone you love, I can usually offer at least a baby step forward, sometimes even a giant step.
