Fired 39% of the time in his career as a Los Angeles-based film producer, studio executive, and tech entrepreneur, John Tarnoff had learned the secrets of turning setbacks into successes. And when his tech startup folded at the end of the dotcom bubble in 2001, his "aha moment" happened - sending him back to school at age 50 to earn a master's degree in spiritual psychology. Pivoting to a focus on people and career counseling, John networked his way to a new role as Head of Show Development at DreamWorks Animation from 2006-09. In this position, he developed culture-changing creative leadership training and college recruiting programs, now used by top universities and corporate clients. Author of Boomer Reinvention: How to Create Your Dream Career Over 50, John shares his experiences in this episode and offers actionable strategies to those looking to find a meaningful job for the second half of life that can be not only financially successful, but personally fulfilling as well!
