self-employment

After 26 years as a career and personal coach, I've come to believe that there are eight career "truths" that are no longer so true or perhaps never were so true.

On the June 9, 2013 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I tried to present a more nuanced approach to thinking about four of those truths.

On the June 16, 2013 show, I talked about three more of those "truths' and invited you to comment. As usual, I also invited your calls for a Three-Minute Workover, in which I try to help you with your career conundrum.

On Dec 2 at 11 am on KALW, MacArthur "Genius" Fellow, Sara Horowitz appears on Work with Marty Nemko to discuss her new book, The Freelancer's Bible. We'll talk about how to find work, price it, even how to get insurance, as well as the implications of a workforce that ever more, consists of freelancers.

I'll also invite listeners to call in for a three-minute career makeover, a Workover.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 am to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM.

I will have made five presentations during the Commonwealth Club's month on The Future of Work. In the Sep. 2, 2012 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I distill those presentations into one hour on:

  • under-the-radar careers for 2013 and beyond
  • ahead-of-the-pack strategies for landing a good job
  • not-obvious strategies for getting ahead (or at least not laid off)
  • how to beat the odds against successful self-employment.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard Sundays from 11 am to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM, San Francisco.

On the July 22, 2012  edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I shared my favorite ideas from the book The $100 Start-Up.  Then, listeners called in for a three-minute WorkOver.  The show aired Sunday, July 22 at 11 am.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard Sundays from 11 am to noon on 91.7, KALW, San Francisco.
