First Job: Ed Sealover

Ed Sealover is a journalist with the Denver Business Journal and he covers
government, economic development, transportation, hospitality and brewing. It’s an absolute ton of beats, which means our chat on Ep. 206 that debuts on February 6 has no shortage of things to discuss. It’s terrific.

But first, he tells me about selling subscriptions for the Annapolis Evening Capitol, which not only paid terribly, but involved cold calling people on the phone. Fun!

First Job: Joan Rogliano

Joan Rogliano is the Founder of the Wildflower Group, and Principal at Rogliano Real Estate Group. She has dedicated the last 13+ years to helping women write the next chapter of their lives after divorce by providing all sorts of resources to them. Her full episode debuts on Wednesday, January 30.

But first, I ask her about her first job, and she shares with me the experience of working as a flight attendant for United Airlines, flying the friendly skies.

First Job: Jake Browne

Jake Browne first appeared on the show more than three years ago on Episode 75. And considering he’s no longer doing any of the three things I ostensibly interviewed him for, I thought it time to invite him back. That episode is coming up on Wednesday, January 16.

But first, Jake shares with me his extraordinarily brief first job, and then cheats a little and talks about his second. Both are wildly entertaining.

First Job: Dr. Martin Carcasson

Martín Carcasson, Ph.D., is a professor in the Communication Studies department of Colorado State University, and the founder and director of the CSU Center for Public Deliberation (CPD). He’s also the first guest of 2019 on the Jon of All Trades Podcast, and his episode (Ep. 203) debuts Wednesday, January 9.

But first, he shares his first job working in his parents’ ice cream shop which not only gave him a freakishly strong right forearm, but led him to believe ice cream was a right, not a privilege. He also tries to sneak in a second job, but I say no dice! Listen here, and then join us Wednesday to kick off what looks to be a great 2019!

First Job: Peter Moore

It’s First Jobs week here at the Jon of All Trades Podcast! In lieu of doing a long form episode this week, I’m highlighting some of my favorite professional people as they tell me all about their first jobs.

Peter Moore (left), pictured above with Rich Coolidge (another one of my favorite colleagues) is the Chairman & CEO of Vital for Colorado. On the final edition of this week’s First Jobs series, Peter shares with his time at 16 years-old toiling as a union warehouse worker in Buffalo, NY. It’s chilling. 😉

First Job: Lynn Granger

It’s First Jobs week here at the Jon of All Trades Podcast! In lieu of doing a long form episode this week, I’m highlighting some of my favorite professional people as they tell me all about their first jobs.

Lynn Granger, seen above in a screengrab doing Vital for Colorado Radio with me last month, is Director of Operations for Colorado Concern, and the host of the Vital for Women Podcast. Her first job story is probably my favorite one of this entire series as I’ve never heard anyone take the route she took to become a journalist. I’m not even going to spoil it, just listen for yourself.

First Job: Debbie Brown

It’s First Jobs week here at the Jon of All Trades Podcast! In lieu of doing a long form episode this week, I’m highlighting some of my favorite professional people as they tell me all about their first jobs.

Today I’ve got Debbie Brown (pictured above with her son Trevor at an energy industry rally), the Founder and CEO of Amplify Strategies, a company I’m proud to have collaborated with on a number of projects, including the Vital for Women Podcast. She shares with me her first job as a 12 year-old in Arizona selling her pets through 4-H. It’s cute, it’s charming, it’s sorta heartbreaking, and it’s actually taught Debbie some real business skills. Enjoy!

First Job: Braden Dick

It’s First Jobs week here at the Jon of All Trades Podcast! In lieu of doing a long form episode this week, I’m highlighting some of my favorite professional people as they tell me all about their first jobs.

Today I’ve got Braden Dick, my co-founder of Mile High 100 (also linked on Facebook here), and founder of Global Meeting Technologies telling me all about his first job. During college, Braden’s mom told him, “You need a job, call your uncle.” And with that, the easiest job interview he ever had, and an incredible funny story. I’m not going to spoil it for you here, so just give it a listen.

First Job: Britta Erickson

Britta Erickson is the Festival Director for the Denver Film Festival. She’s also my guest on Episode 195 of the Jon of All Trades Podcast debuting October 31, 2018.

But first, she shares with stories from her first job working as a caddy at Cherry Hills Country Club. Working outside, playing cards with cute boys, and no knowledge of golf whatsoever going in. Fun times!

First Job: Anthony Pigliacampo

Anthony Pigliacampo is the Founder and Co-CEO of Modern Market Farm Fresh Eatery. He’s also my guest on Ep. 194 of the Jon of All Trades Podcast, debuting October 24, 2018.

But first, he shares with me his first foray into the food service business, as he discusses his first job, at a mere 8 years-old, slinging slices of pizza to raise money for his Boy Scout Troop. It’s funny and adorable. Enjoy!
