I was recently interviewed on Jeff Steinmann's podcast about how I ditched my Wall Street job to co-found The Art of Charm. So, for those of you that were curious about my entrée into this particularly random/unusual industry, here you go. :) Enter Jeff Steinmann: How Jordan Harbinger used his Charm to Quit Working so he can Enjoy Life. While he was in law school, Jordan Harbinger and his buddy started a podcast called The Pickup Podcast (on which I recently appeared) just because they thought it would be fun and they wanted to share what they were learning about talking to women as they tried to turn their ho-hum 19-year-old love lives around. They were having fun with it and everything was going fine. It was just a hobby. Meanwhile Jordan finished law school and started working at a big NYC law firm. Enjoying the big wall street lawyer bucks, he developed a taste for the finer things in life. Fast cars, a nice New York City apartment and big bar tabs with friends. Suddenly, the music stopped. Jordan’s firm told him he was being downsized. The good news is that by this time, the Pickup Podcast was starting to “pick up” — (pun intended; I couldn’t resist). It had a large and growing following. Not discouraged, Jordan know he had something going with the podcast and he completely rebuilt his life – and this time there was no soul-sucking lawyering job involved. This show isn’t just about monetizing a podcast (there’s plenty of that), but it’s really about a whole new way of looking at living your life. A new way that puts the things that that get you excited FIRST. On this episode of the How to Quit Working Show Jordan is going to share: -Exactly what he did when faced with an expensive lifestyle and suddenly NO income. -Besides business savvy, how do you get a podcast to actually pay you. -How he transformed the Pickup Podcast from being just a hobby to the money-making empire it is today.
