Every Sunday from 11 am to noon, I try to help you solve your career conundrum, no matter how serious. Usually, I only devote part of the show to those Three-Minute Workovers. But on Sunday, June 3, I'll do Workovers for the entire hour, interspersed with my favorite new career tips.
On today's show (April 15, 2012,) listeners and I shared lessons we learned from our parents. If there was a common thread is that many fathers, didn't explicitly teach lessons about the value of hard work, but did work hard. And rather than being dubbed with a pathological moniker such as "workaholic" or "unable to convey feelings," the callers and I agreed that such people--man or women--are more wisely described as unsung heroes. I think you'll enjoy this show. It was filled with heart and useful reminders.
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.
