An informative podcast exploring the careers and lifestyles of people with real passion for their occupations.
Puzzle Maker & Editor: Trip Payne
Autodidact Trip Payne discovered his love of puzzles early and leapt right in: submitting, competing and publishing crosswords. He's since cleverly navigated his way through the labyrinth of life, figuring out how to turn his passion, into a puzzling profession. This has led him to work, creating, editing, and publishing individual crosswords and entire books. And, Hollywood fun consulting and competing on game shows. Discover the clues to emulating Trip's wordy work here.
Development & Animation Consultant: Aaron Simpson
A penchant for treasure hunting, and a love of art and technology, led Aaron to become a creative curator: someone who consumes lots of content searching for, and sharing, those unique gems that suit his particular tastes. In doing so, he's built a career for himself finding, polishing and distributing those gems...all the while mentoring, encouraging and protecting the artists who conceptualize them. And along the way, Aaron found a family of like-minded weirdos. Learn how to build your own unique curation career like Aaron- himself a diamond in the rough.
Train Man: Richard Bromley
Richard had no inclination of working for the railroad. Midway through his corporate career, he was musing about the general state of the railroad industry. The same week, by uncanny coincidence, one of his coworkers shared a train conductor recruiting ad in the newspaper (one of those paper publications as nostalgic as trains). He signed up, jumped the corporate ship, started riding the rails and never looked back...except when he needed to examine a hot axle on the 145th car (that's part of his job). Find out how to toot your own (train engine) horn like Richard, here.
Beekeeper: Bill Lewis
Bill ordered his first hive from the Sears, Roebuck & Company catalogue. The post office called his home and asked him to please come retrieve his living package! He learned a lot about bees and won a Boy Scout merit badge thanks to that first colony, but it was off to college and an engineering career. Deciding he needed to get back to nature, his next hive found him- attempting to move rent-free into his home. He offered instead to build them their own place out back and it's been a symbiotic relationship of honey and sweethearts ever since. Learn all the buzz about Bill's career here.
Performance Rigger: Yanna Kiriakopolus
Yanna began her career on the stage as a classical violinist. Then, decided to climb the literal corporate ladder to work in the rafters as a performance rigger. It took a great deal of dedication and taxing labor to work her way up, up, up to rigger. Now, she uses her technical prowess to help others soar on stage. Shine the spotlight on Yanna's career journey here.
