Kids, Uncle Cal has been around the career block a few times. Depending on how you define the term “job” I have held more than 15 jobs in my adult career. This doesn’t include side-hustles, moonlighting, or wild ideas. I’ve worked for the good, the bad, and the ugly; and trust me, there is a lot of ugly out there.
In this talk we’ll examine a few of the life-lessons I’ve learned the hard way. Some of them will be interesting, some of them insightful, some of them silly. Regardless, these lessons were generally learned by making big enough mistakes. Spend a little time with me, learn the lessons I’ve learned so that you don’t repeat my mistakes. You are then free to go make your own new mistakes.
