It's one of life's great dilemmas: Do you follow your passion and risk starvation? Or should you express your passion in volunteer work or as a hobby? On the Aug 26, 2012 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I'll take both sides of the debate, conclude with decision rules about when you should and shouldn't do what you love, and then invite you to weigh in.
Plus, you're also invited to call in for a Three-Minute Workover. I'll try to help you solve your career conundrum.
Should entrepreneurship be the 4th R? On August 5, 2012, Marty Nemko will debate that question with his wife and member of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction's cabinet, Dr. Barbara Nemko. To ensure both sides are explored fairly, in the middle of the debate, they'll switch sides.
Plus call in for a three-minute Workover. Marty and Barbara will help solve your career conundrum.
Work with Marty Nemko is heard Sundays from 11 am to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM.
Ever hear a recording of your voice? If you're like many people, you don't love the way you sound.
Sometimes, that's simply because you're not used to hearing your voice externally but sometimes it reflects deserved unhappiness with your tone, your articulateness, etc.
On Sep 30, 2012, my guest on Work with Marty Nemko will help us out. She is Dr. Carol Fleming, a speech consultant and author of the books, The Sound of Your Voice and It's the Way You Say It: Becoming Articulate, Well-Spoken and Clear.
Lew Hunter, former head of UCLA's screenwriting program, told me that he asked a cabbie, "How the book coming?" The cabbie, surprised, replied, "How did you know I was writing a book?" Hunter smiled, "Everyone is."
Indeed, so many people "have a book in them" or have written one, but which isn't selling.
