triple threat

My friend Hashim Warren has a cool site and service over at Career Green Light. I'm part of an interview series he's running, and he wrote the following about today's interview:

This upcoming Monday I’m continuing Career Green Light’s “Personal Branding for the Entertainment Industry” seminar series with an interview with Baratunde Thurston, a career ninja in our business with an awesome triple threat.

Baratunde works in front of the camera as the host of the Science Channel’s “Future Of” and behind the scenes as the online editor ofThe Onion.

Baratunde has agreed to let me grill him on this teleseminar about how he used his triple threat to build his personal brand and attract opportunities to him.

On this call we’ll cover

  • Choosing a mix of talents that work together
  • Deciding which passions to ignore (Baratunde almost became a priest and wood carver!)
  • Why relying on lucky breaks is better than career planning

The dial-in info to join the chat is here:

Monday, Sept. 20th, 3PM-3:45PM EST (dial in early to get settled)
