It’s been great hearing from people checking in on the blog this week. Emails and comments are always welcome. Don’t be shy.
Several people have mentioned they are between gigs. This is usually not by their choice of course.
I can relate since I’ve been asked to vacate the building on more than one occasion.
Remember being fired is part of the cultural ritual of radio. You must be fired periodically in order to renew your membership in the brother/sisterhood.
Now that you’re out, what do you do?
I recently came came across Dan Miller’s books. The first was ’48 Days To The Work You Love’ and next is “No More Mondays”.
Dan’s mission in life is helping people find their passion and put it to work for them. Perhaps it is in a business of your own or something you do on the side as free lance. He is all about helping you take control of your own destiny.
The Dan Miller 48 Day’s podcast is available through ITUNES. The link to Dan’s website is listed to the right of this page.
Use the time between gigs to really think about what you want to do.
Radio jobs are changing rapidly. You can’t rely on the old ways of finding jobs. Take time to think about your strengths and work on a path that really suits your interests and talents.
Motivational speaker Jim Rohn says, “Work harder on yourself, than you do on your job”.
In other words take the time to improve your skills, make contacts and work on things that will help more than just earn a paycheck.
View being fired as a great opportunity to meet new people and learn more about yourself.
Most people tell me the new job is a better than the one that turned them out.
