Turning a hobby in to a career?

Is it possible to turn a hobby you are passionate about into a paying career is a question I am often asked by friends and listeners.

My guest today, Adam Jackson, is on the verge of finding out. Adam’s photography is getting him some recognition he didn’t think possible when he first started his hobby as he traveled the states for his “day job” as a business development manager for environmental systems with a past in engineering. The creative side of his brain is taking some phenomenal landscape and celestial photos. With a Bachelor of Science degree in Nuclear Engineering Technology you wouldn’t think he would be able to pivot careers into photography but he is learning social media uses for photography and how he can provide value to people that would like to learn and/or appreciate his photography skills.

“Thinking, man, I’ve wasted these opportunities across the nation of all the top spots. I have the luxury of traveling and not everyone gets to do that”.  ~ Adam Jackson on why he takes his camera with him everywhere he goes now

He shares his journey from engineer to owning a guitar business, which started his photography, to being paid as a professional photographer and now teaching others how to explore their photography passions. He gets to travel for his “day job” and take the extra time to see and take pictures of the fantastic scenery around us. Make sure to check out and subscribe to his Instagram page to learn more about him and his photos.

Mike Robbins Together

Mike Robbins public speaker motivation baseball california

Mike Robbins is a public speaker, author, an expert in teamwork and leadership and my guest on today’s podcast. Mike was a suggested guest by my sister who saw him speak a while back in Ojai, California. His career started out as a professional baseball player but then like many athletes he had to pivot his career into a new field after injuries removed him from the game he loved to play. Mike’s background of having to pivot at a young age will prove useful for him and his team as they learn how to be successful operating a public speaking organization during a time when you aren’t allowed to gather or have companies gather for functions.

“Somewhere around 25 events either postponed or cancelled and my new book “We’re All In This Together” just came out, so we had a whole book tour and book events that were scheduled and we had to adjust”.  ~ Mike Robbins on how COVID19 affected his business

His fifth and latest book “We’re All In This Together” was titled many months before the lockdown but it is a perfect title for how we had to revisit our purpose and careers as business travelers. We discuss his thoughts on speaking engagements in the future, whether virtual or with social distancing, as well as how his book can help individuals going thru these unprecedented times.

Cake by Courtney

Cake By Courtney courtney rich cakes entrepreneur utah teacher

Cake by Courtney owner, Courtney Rich, is my guest today. This isn’t déjà vu. Courtney is my first guest to be a repeat guest on my podcast. She is a self taught, baker extraordinaire who is using the lockdown situation to improve her relationships at home and interact on her social media platforms on a more personal basis.

We had a great follow up conversation about how the lockdown affected her cake business, design classes and her new podcast, Courtney: Beyond the Cake. I might be biased, but I think her entry into podcasting as a way to connect with her fans is great. There are so many opportunities to reach customers and fans in different platforms and formats that we should do our best to provide what they want.

“the silver lining of a challenge like this (quarantine) is that it kind of puts them to try something new….you see a ton of people trying new hobbies or DIY projects around the house” ~ Courtney Rich

ABOUT

I long ago ditched box mixes in pursuit of melt-in-your-mouth, to-die-for flavor combinations, fillings and textures. I believe cake must be decadent, life-changing and worthy of celebration! And I believe anyone should be able to bake that kind of cake – and I’m here to teach you just that!

I didn’t bake my first cake from scratch until I was 26, when my son turned one. It looked like a big brown mound with sprinkles and a candle – honestly, a train-wreck, but it tasted delicious and I was hooked! Over the last nine years, I’ve taught myself the dos and don’ts of baking cakes through a lot of trial and error. Now, I want to share the simple basics that look impressive, but are easy to master. My goal is to inspire you to give baking from scratch a try. I’m all about, if I can do it, you can too! 

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Brigham Young University in broadcast journalism, not food science. The broadcasting degree has come in handy, however.  After 13 years as a focus group moderator for a major television consulting firm, I’m able to bring my experiences full circle as I share my baking passion on local television and in food conferences all over the country.

I’m also the mother of two amazing kids, am married to my best friend, and teach cake classes at Orson Gygi Culinary Arts Center, in Salt Lake City.

Wendy Hill Vegas Stories

Wendy Hill – Vegas Stories

Imagine all the crazy things you would see and the people you would meet after working nearly two decades in a major casino on the Las Vegas Strip. While most people slept, Wendy worked nights as a casino cocktail server during her 20’s and 30’s. She recalls the fast cash, partying while working, meeting famous people and dealing with drunk customers from all over the world.

Las Vegas is the ultimate tourist and business travel destination, catering to millions of people who visit each year. These casino jobs employ nearly half of the cities population and cocktail server is one of the most sought after positions, followed by working SWING SHIFT, where ALL the action happens. Wendy reflects on the transition from Mob run era into corporate America taking control. We also chatted about life as a civilian after retiring her tray.

“I saw about six security guards carrying a guy out that was zip tied at the ankles, they used his head to open the door and threw him out on the street.” ~ Wendy Hill

Wendy talks about the changes in not only the gaming industry but how the revenue earned in recent years comes from beverage sales and the new beast, Day/Night Clubs. There is a new breed of waitress, and she doesn’t wear much. Wendy doesn’t hold back on her thoughts and her stories match that energy.

She owns the domain for Casino Waitress just in case all those stories collected should need a platform. If you ever wondered what it’s like to live and work in a tourist destination, you won’t want to miss this episode!

It was a great talk about how a passion for neuroscience and meditation has provided many opportunities for Ariel to travel, speak and share her passions with others. Maybe an unlikely career path to be able to travel but she found a way to help others and travel at the same time.

Bobby Genovese FUN

Bobby Genovese entrepreneur business bg yacht florida bahamas toronto

Bobby Genovese is my guest today. Bobby is entrepreneur, father, friend and philanthropist who lives life by the mantra “who has more fun than us”.  It was a great chat with Bobby to hear about a different mentality regarding business travel. He travels the world working on projects he “wants” to work on. He brings his children with him as much as possible and makes having fun an equal part of traveling for his businesses. This is especially important with everything that is going on around the world during the current pandemic.

ABOUT

Connecting enthusiastic people with winning opportunities is one of Bobby Genovese’s greatest passions, which began at age 25 when he founded his first company in his native Ontario before establishing BG Capital Group Limited and BG Capital Management Corporation, both based in The Bahamas, with associate management offices in Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Barbados, Toronto and Vancouver. “More than working hard and being smart, seeing the big picture is key.”

A seasoned equestrian, Genovese brought his accomplishments in business to the polo field where he enjoyed equal success as a polo player and team owner, which led to the creation of multiple polo and equestrian clubs including his flagship BG Polo & Equestrian Resort in Ocala, Florida. In 2013 his love for adventure and preservation of natural resources grew into the creation of BG Signature, a global portfolio of extraordinary destinations and experiences. The private access VIP collection spans the spectrum of events in sports, fashion, culture and more.

Genovese also dedicates his time, energy and substantial resources to numerous philanthropic endeavors, especially those that serve children. His chairmanship of the annual Car and Boat Rally Scavenger Cups, which began in 2007, has helped raise more than $16 million for Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children, Canada’s largest and most sophisticated centre for pediatric cancer research, treatment and care. “Giving back is both a privilege and a responsibility.”

MEET THE WINEMAKER
Jamey Whetstone

Jamey moved out to California from his home in South Carolina to manage Mustards Grill in 1996. Simply captivated by the community, lifestyle, and culture of wine country, he found himself quickly growing roots. By 1998, he had begun his winemaking education at Turley Wine Cellars where he would remain in his apprenticeship until 2005. During that time, he spent a summer sabbatical working for the Seysses family at Domaine Dujac in Morey-Saint-Denis and laid the groundwork for Whetstone Wine Cellars, which he founded in 2002.

BETTER WINES FOR AN ACTIVE LIFE

Jamey shares in our vision to create better wines that compliment his active lifestyle. Jamey is an avid surfer, skier, and all-around outdoorsman. His passion for winemaking is mirrored by his passion for adventure, and he wanted to create a health-conscious wine alternative that he can be proud to bring to the table. Our Fresh Vine Cabernet Sauvignon is the first release of those wines.

A little about me…

Seattle is my home.

I’m the mother of one beautiful little girl named Kalina.

(Don’t let the photos deceive you; I’ve done my fair share of carrying my child surfboard style out of the store while sporting a messy bun and bags under my eyes from sleepless nights.) 

I love hiking, anything Disney, and traveling. 

 

Now, let’s get personal

My name is Taya Rose. I’m an entrepreneur, philanthropist and Mindset Coach.

Coming from a rough childhood, I carried an unhealthy relationship with myself, my body and my life in to my early adulthood, where I unconsciously repeated much of my past. It wasn’t until one day; I made the decision to change my life forever. 

I began to passionately study habit change, self-improvement, neuroscience, psychology, nutrition, fitness and much more. This turned in to years of auditing college courses, taking online classes, gaining certifications and reading countless books.

After achieving AMAZING results in my own life and physical, mental and emotional health, I became obsessed with the question, “What is the key difference between those who spin in endless circles living unfulfilling lives, verses those ACTUALLY change their lives for the better- permanently?

My key takeaway-

MINDSET.

IS.

EVERYTHING.

It became my mission to show others what was possible for them and use this knowledge for something outside of myself. That’s when I decided on becoming a dually certified Life & Health Coach. Or as I call it, a Mindset Coach

My message to you is that you are truly more powerful, wonderful and capable than you give yourself credit for. You don’t have to repeat the past. You don’t have to half-ass live your life. You don’t have to stuff down your talents and gifts, or settle for not feeling your best.

My mission is to light the way for others to bridge the gap between whom they are now and who they want to be.

You got this, keep going and believe in yourself! I believe in you.

Raquel McNabb – CARIS Sports

Raquel McNabb caris sports foundation donovan

Raquel McNabb is my guest today. She founded the Caris Sports Foundation to give kids, who otherwise couldn’t afford to join a team, the chance to play. An accomplished athlete and mother of four, Raquel has personally supported athletes from low-income families over the years.

Being a busy mom of four athletic, school aged children, she started the foundation because of the importance of helping others achieve their goals. She has a lot of balls up in the air at all times with the foundation getting started last year, four children and their always changing schedules and a husband that is always on the move as well.

Caris Sports Foundation

The foundation was founded in 2019 to help kids and their families meet the costs associated with recreational and competitive sports. 

They are well aware of the fees involved in team sports. Team fees, equipment, uniforms, travel expenses, and other related costs all add up. Some families can afford it; others can’t. But access to sports shouldn’t be limited to those who have the financial resources to play. Income affects sports participation. Children who play more, come from families that can afford more. Only 34% of kids ages 6 to 12 from homes with incomes of $25,000 or less played team sports compared to 69% of kids from home with incomes of $100,000 or more.

Organized sports shouldn’t price out kids who can benefit from the camaraderie, competition, challenges, personal growth, and accomplishments that sports offer. Caris Sports Foundation and its supporters provide scholarships to cover those expenses. By taking the money problem out of the equation, they help young athletes, from kindergarten through high school, get out on the playing field. 

Caris Sports Foundation’s current activities are limited to Arizona; however, they will soon be expanding to other regions.

Danielle Lewis – Pilot

Danielle Lewis pilot southwest air force africa congo c130

Danielle Lewis is my guest today. Danielle is an airline pilot for a major commercial airline. After years serving in the Air Force as a C130 pilot, Danielle was part of the 6% of female aviators in the US military. She was the first female hired to fly a civilian version of the C130 in Africa into the Congo. She has some great stories of zebras and life in Africa.

We chat about her struggles being recognized as a pilot and the fact that women only make up 3%-4% of commercial pilots. Amazingly to me she still has to convince some male passengers that they will be okay with a female flying their plane.

I asked her what was the biggest change was for her going from military flights to commercial flights. Her response:

“It’s boring and I love it. Boring is relative, right. No one is shooting at you. At all of the other jobs, even in Africa people were shooting at you.”

Danielle talks about her favorite places to fly to and visit. She also shares some great tips for flying into and out of various US airports. I am so thankful for her going out of her comfort zone and being gracious to share her time and stories. She is an inspiration to the girls she mentors and hopefully she gets the chance to reach more girls. They can see a great example of being focused and determined to succeed in a field that is male centered.

Danielle is the first guest on my show that initially said “No” to being a guest and then decided she would like to be on the show. She reached out to me several months after my initial request to explain that the girls she mentors asked her what she has done to be out of her own comfort zone. She remembered being asked by me to be a guest on the podcast and turning it down. It was a reminder to her that even as we get older we need to push our own comfort zones.
