    Marcy Rosenbaum: Meet the Host of Livelihood Show

    in Entrepreneur

    This week on Livelihood Show, host Marcy Rosenbaum presents a career navigation strategy that rides change instead of trying to manage it.
    This week’s introduction to the Livelihood Show interview of Marcy Rosenbaum was conducted by Anna Drezen, an actor, writer and producer living in New York City. She interviewed Marcy using an adaptation of the famous Proust questionnaire featured by James Lipton on Inside the Actors' Studio....
    “Marcy Rosenbaum is the host of "Livelihood," a weekly radio show about career paths in transition. She left her corporate job to pursue her dream of talk radio, and the show aims to help others figure out how to start fresh with a career they love. I'm not sure which I like more: her infectiously positive attitude, or her voice, which is like a fountain of warm Nutella.”
    AD: What's your relationship to the theme of the show?
    Marcy Rosenbaum: In my past career, I was a consultant. It was like being an actor. I couldn't act until someone gave me a role. I was on the shelf until someone cast me. I wanted to be more like a musician: a musician can play whenever they want; they just have to get an idea of how to make money at it.

    Adam Liss - Using Breathing and Attention as Career Navigation Tools

    in Entrepreneur

    In order to build a successful and satisfying personal career path, we need to be paying attention.  What’s going on around me?  How am I doing? What do I want?I
    This week, our guest is Adam Liss, and he has some very useful skills for figuring out “what’s next”.  Adam teaches the skills of mindfulness, which has been defined as paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.
    In the tumult of economic and organizational upheaval, it’s hard to pay attention. So many things distract us: worries about money and job security;  endlessly expanding to do lists; “what if” analyses as we try to predict, prepare or prevent something in the future. Techniques for mindfulness are more important during changes in our lives than ever before.
    Adam, Director of Cape Stress Reduction and Optimal Health in Cape Cod Massachusetts, understands that the mind is known to be a factor in stress and stress-related disorders, and that mindfulness meditation exercises can  positively effect a range of autonomic physiological processes, lowering blood pressure and reducing overall arousal and emotional re-activity (that "fight or flight" response).
    Adam Liss graduated from of Amherst College with a BA degree in Cultural Anthropology. He established a personal meditation practice back in 1975, when “meditation” had a reputation of being  “far out" of the mainstream practices of health and wellness.

    Zen Master Jeff Kitzes Asks: "Whose Path Am I On?"

    in Entrepreneur

    Are you stuck in a rut? Are you unhappy in your job? So are a majority of employees, even those who feel fortunate to have a job.
    Livelihood host Marcy Rosenbaum and guest Zen Master Bon Soeng (Jeff Kitzes) discuss what you can do when you feel you’re living someone else’s plan for your life. Jeff talks about the power of looking inward to find what’s most important to you. When you can’t change the company or the boss, there are still some things you can do to find increased satisfaction at work. Your career, he suggests, can be an expression of who you are, even when your opportunities are stalled or limited.
    In today's interview, Jeff talks about the power of looking inward to find the meaning in the opportunities you encounter.
    He enjoys my reaction of horror as he references Donald Rumsfeld comment "You don't know what you don't know"; and my chagrin when I acknowledge that insightful remarks can come from unlikely sources. (I take some consolation that Rumsfeld stole the comment from Albert Einstein, who said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge; knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand".)
    How does someone become a Zen Master?
    One experience at a time.
    Meet Jeff Kitzes, Guiding Teacher at Empty Gate Zen Center in Berkley California. Also known as Zen Master Bon Soeng (which means "original nature") he is a meditation teacher, carpenter, licensed psychotherapist, writer and celebrant.

    Larry Powell - Franchise Quest

    in Entrepreneur

    When you look at buying a new car for instance, sitting inside the one you are interested in for the first time is an emotional event. Your senses are in a heightened state. You're not really in fact-gathering mode. You're in dream mode. Dream mode can be a dangerous place, because it's based on emotion. What are the operating costs? What is the repair record?
    What is Franchise Quest?
    When you are looking at franchises, your emotions will run high, too. It can be really exciting (as it should be) to look into small business ownership. Just don't let the dream mode about owning your own business get in the way of doing the research that's required. Doing franchise research the right way is not difficult. What is difficult is taking the emotion out of your decision making process, and only focusing on the facts. When you base your decision to purchase a franchise on the facts, you lower your risk and increase the likelihood of success- the sweet spot for any entrepreneur.
    How to Accomplish Franchise Quest!
    Today’s guest, Larry Powell, is a franchise ownership adviser. He coaches people who are interested in franchise ownership how to properly select and carefully research franchise business opportunities so they can increase their odds of success. He’s the one who can help you balance dream mode and fact model when it comes to choosing the right business for you.

    in Entrepreneur

    Rex and Sherry in the national touring company of Godspell
    How do they know this? They teach the skills of improvisation. To improvise is to produce or make something from whatever is available. It is the art of experiencing, reacting and creating, in the moment, and in response to the stimulus of your environment and your own inner feelings.
    Actors use improvisation skills to make a character come alive.  Educators use improvisation to engage their students in active learning. Professionals use improvisation to think on their feet, make connections with others, and build shared ideas.
    Rex and Sherry are partners in marriage and work.  They are making a living as actors and artists;. They are crafting and navigating successful and innovative  career paths that include performing, writing, directing and teaching.
    Rex Knowles and Sherry Landrum currently run the two year Professional Actor Training Program at Chattanooga State Community College in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
    The curriculum is modeled after the New Actors Workshop, a prestigious training program in NYC founded by George Morrison, Mike Nichols and Paul Sills, where, for ten years, Rex and Sherry taught and administered the program.
