Ask Me Anything about how to pick yourself back up after your career has been negatively disrupted, or your startup dreams have been crushed!
I'm Rafe Gomez, a serial entrepreneur, and my career journey has had some lively ups and downs:
- From 2003 to 2008, I was the host/DJ/producer of "The Groove Boutique", a nationally syndicated radio mix show that aired across America. The show was the #1 rated and led to lots of opportunities for me to tour, co-produce music (including a jazz remix of Smokey Robinson's "Quiet Storm" featuring vibes legend Roy Ayers - click to track 8), and appear on TV (including hosting a show on QVC).
- As a result of the '08 recession, the radio stations that I worked with changed their music formats, and my DJ days were over. I had a difficult time finding a new gig because I was following the obsolete guidance and advice of career "experts", but I devised a new job search methodology that helped me and has also helped thousands of other people who were victims of career disruption. Details here, including info about my audiobook "What's In It For ME?", which was a top-selling career title on iTunes and Amazon.
- I'm now an award-winning provider of multimedia sales support content creation and PR for organizations around the world. I also contribute content about business strategy to CNBC, Entrepreneur, PR Daily, MSNBC, and many others.
When it comes to picking yourself up after you've been knocked on your ass, I'm the guy who can hip you to the real deal, no b.s. mindset that you'll need to embrace if you want to jump back in the game.
I look forward to sharing my guidance with everyone/anyone who needs to get their dome tightened, their spirit inspired, and their energy steered in the right direction!
