Jefferson resident, Jeremy Slate, launched the “Create Your Own Life” podcast in November 2015. Within the first five months of the show, it reached 50,000 downloads and hit number one in iTunes New and Noteworthy and number 24 in all of Business. The show has also been downloaded in 165 countries.
The career model is changing, according to Forbes. On average, a millennial will have 15-20 jobs in their career. The show stems from Slate’s personal career journey from a high school history teacher, to an insurance salesman, to a fitness entrepreneur, to an internet marketing expert. When Slate was a high school history teacher and realized he was not in the right field, the concept of “Create Your Own Life” was born.
The show has gained strong momentum from celebrity guests like James Kyson from the NBC hit show “Heroes,” former New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford and former presidential candidate Wayne Allyn Root.
