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 ( in the first part of the year and joining that and his Branding Collective group...
