This was one of the most exciting interviews I have been able to do in my career.
I was introduced to the work of Mike Kim a few years back when I was looking to transition to a new path on my Career Adventure. His Brand You Podcast and a great download on career pivoting sucked me in.
Now many years later I had the chance to see Mike speak at the #socialrock event in Rockford, Illinois (below on the Rock River). Then backstage I got a chance to meet him live and in-person to record this episode.
Mike launched his Brand You Bootcamp (www.mikekim.com/start) in the first part of the year and joining that and his Branding Collective group have helped my business find traction in the career development space.
You will hear in this inaugural episode of the Career Adventure podcast all about how he went from wanting to be a movie theater usher to the personal branding and marketing expert he is today.
