Description:

This week I am speaking with Tami Forman Executive of Path Forward.

Path Forward is a nonprofit organization on a mission to empower people to restart their careers after time spent focused on caregiving. We fulfill this mission by working with companies to create and run mid-career internships — also known as “returnships” — that give professionals a jump start back to their careers while giving companies access to a diverse, untapped talent force.

I had Tami on the podcast way back in 2019 in episode #128. I wanted to bring Tami back to discuss how the Pandemic has affected their mission. Given that they primarily focus on caregivers who are mostly women and this recession has been called the "She-cession", I thought it would be appropriate to get her perspective on the recovery from the pandemic.

This week I am speaking with Matt Blumberg, CEO, and founder of Bolster.com, an online marketplace for interim and fractional executive roles. I was introduced to Matt by Tami Foreman, executive director of Path Forward, who was on the podcast in episode #128. Matt is the board chair for Path Forward.

I interviewed Mike Harris from Patina Solutions back in episode #221. Patina Solutions is similar but different from Bolster in supplying fractional and interim executive talent to their clients. I suggest you listen to both Matt and Mike to see if these platforms are a good fit for your situation.

Description:

This week I am speaking with Keith Stolzenbach, who I was introduced to by my friends at EnCorps STEM Teachers Program. Keith spent much of his career as a professor at MIT and UCLA. When he decided to retire in his late 60s he decided to become a high school science teacher. With the help from the EnCorps program, he is now a chemistry teacher at what is referred to as a Title 1 high school. Title 1 schools get extra assistance from the state and federal government as the majority of the students qualify for financial assistance. When I taught high school math, I taught in a Title 1 school which meant that most of my students qualified for free or reduced-price meals.

I want you to hear Keith’s story, which I found quite inspiring.

Description:

I just returned from a 4 week trip to Austin Texas where my wife and I were vaccinated, I renewed my Texas driver's license and took care of a lot of other business.

I put out the word that I was interested in having meetings with anyone who wanted to chat with me while I was in Austin to my email list and to my personal Facebook page. I had 26 people take me up on the offer over a 4 week period.

What I found was based on their age, relationship status, health, and their employment status how they dealt with the pandemic, and more importantly, how they were emerging from the pandemic varied widely. I want to take you through my discussions and what I learned about them and myself.
