  • Rex Sikes Movie Beat chats with actor Clint Howard

    in Film

    Clint Howard, actor, has a career spanning over fifty years,and over two hundred film and TV shows.  He has spent his entire life entertaining us in a variety of interesting and unique roles. From childhood roles in The Andy Griffith Show and Star Trek to of course, the hit TV Show Gentle Ben, Clint was a well recognized personality by the time he was ten.Making the transition from juvenile to adult actor was no problem for Clint. Cult classic Rock N Roll High School and horror genre Evilspeak showed as an adult he could be versatile and affective. Whether Clint works in comedy classics like Waterboy, the Austin Powers film series or a hilarious episode of Seinfeld, he comfortably slides into dramatic roles such as Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon and Alabama Moon. Recently, Clint can be seen in the campy, B Horror title, Bloodrayne Third Reich and Rob Zombie's Lords of Salem. He's also put on the producing hat, teaming with long time colleague Gavin Grazer on an indie comedy. Born and raised in Burbank, California, Clint has always balanced his professional career with a 'hometown' oriented life. He continues to live with his wife Melanie in Burbank and stay active in the community. Stay tuned to Rex Sikes Movie Beat for other great archived interviews, cast and crew listings, events, festivals, premieres, and more at rexsikes.com

    One on One with Rod Colon - Live Career Management Coaching

    in Jobs

    Many people out there are in pain.  Their financial situations are dire.  They have lost their jobs, their life savings and in many cases, their self-respect while chasing around looking for a new position.


    It's that "chasing around" part that started to bother me many years ago, long before today’s economic turmoil started creeping toward critical mass.  It became obvious to me that far too many people were conducting their job searches in an illogical and self-defeating way.  They were lured into the easy, deceptive world of Internet job boards where hunting for a job simply meant finding an interesting opening, uploading a resume and cover letter, clicking a few buttons, then waiting for a response. 


    But the folly of this approach is that the job board, at best, is nothing more than a piece of software.  It cannot engage in meaningful two-way communication with humans.  Without a human-to-human “networking” component in the equation, how can anyone expect to get meaningful results?


    This is the connectionless void in which so many people have spent thousands of hours toiling their lives away in the false hope that a database somewhere in cyberspace would electronically ride to their rescue, find them a job, reinstate the flow of money into their households, and make things right with the world again.


    How much more wrong could they have possibly been?

    Why Own Your Career?

    in Jobs

    Why are we born to own our careers?


    -Our ancestors had to be resourceful and creative to feed themselves and survive.


    -Work in its current form is a new invention and the rare exception in history, not a natural human state.


     


    How has the world of work changed?


    -The traditional career paths and assumptions are no longer valid — e.g. that big corporations will take care of loyal workers who automatically move up in a career escalator — due to at least two (interrelated) macro forces:


    -(1) Technology (automates jobs, changes the nature of jobs, and makes it easier to offshore jobs), and


    -(2) Globalization (increases competition for jobs).


    -“Professional loyalty now flows ‘horizontally’ to and from your network rather than ‘vertically’ to your boss.”


    -“Networking has been replaced by intelligent network building.”


    -“Searching for a job only when you’re unemployed or unhappy at work has been replaced by always be generating


    -opportunities.”


    -And much much more!
