This post is part of a seminar series on Personal Brand Design. Scroll to the bottom to listen to the seminar interview.
Three years ago the cartoonist Scott Adams asked a script supervisor how she landed her gig, and through her story he discovered the secret to scoring your own dream job – get yourself a triple threat.
Finding the right threats to triple up on makes you stand out in this crowded entertainment industry. And you already know that if you don’t have a personal brand that makes you absolutely unique, you lose.
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 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
Here is the audio from the call:
