Ep. 3: Ken Coleman on finding your passion and dream job, creating a stand out resume, and nailing that next interview

On this very special episode of The Bijou Show, I am joined by Ken Coleman of Ramsey Solutions and the host of the ever popular call in show: The Ken Coleman Show.

Now this isn’t your average episode. I didn’t get my team to call his team and get together. Oh no.

One day I was sitting on my couch – crying. I cried because I felt lost in my own career track. No employer wanted me because I was always taking off for doctors appointments because of my poor health and disability. My dreams of becoming an entrepreneur were shattered. A while back a professor of mine told me I would never get anywhere or make any money as a business owner.

Basically, I was devastated and I picked up the phone and called into Ken’s NATIONAL radio show to ask him for advice.

We started talking and next thing you know, he’s telling me he’s going to be ON MY PODCAST.

A few weeks later I interview him. Then he asks me to come onto HIS SHOW.

Chaos ensued. Just kidding – but it was a crazy ride and you can listen to me interview Ken above.
