Not many people stay in one career anymore, in fact, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics: ‘The average worker today stays at each of his or her jobs for 4.4 years', and I was fortunate to chat with Rob Kall, in the latest Life and Career Corner, who is a prime example of re-inventing yourself and expanding your horizons with passionate determination.
A transitional career
This prolific man was also generous with his time and advice on an interesting and colorful career which included the following roles:
1) An inventor as a graduate student with the creation of a Bio-Q ring, which has been used at top medical clinics.
2) Medical writer and founder of Future Health.
3) Publisher, Editor, Writer, OpEdNews - first media winner of the Pillar Award for supporting Whistleblowers and the first amendment.
4) Bottom Up Radio Host
Strong Core Values and Opinions
For his outspoken contributions standing up for when it was necessary, he was honoured with a Person of Conscience Award, and also had some advice for those wanting to follow their passion, whether they had a supportive circle or are on their own:
And this ‘awakener’ is not finished yet, he has created a new website and a book — Bottom-up The Connection Revolution, is in the works which explores how businesses and relationships are transitioning from a Top-down patriarchal culture to a more connected, empathic, bottom-up one that is taking place today with, raising, in his words, ‘connection conciousness’.
Stay tuned.....More to come from this empowerer, and hope it inspires you to follow your career aspirations with passionate determination while, at the same time, hopefully, making the world a better place.
