WASHINGTON, DC, USA, August 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, veteran executive recruiter, author, and meaningful work advocate Dan Smolen announced the first of three new episodes for The Tightrope with Dan Smolen podcast’s Fall 2018 season. The first of these episodes premieres on Friday, August 31.

At the start of 2018, Smolen turned off the lights at his executive recruitment firm, The Green Suits, LLC, and ended his headhunting career. Throughout a rewarding 20-year-run, during which he placed hundreds of best-match professionals within client companies, Smolen recognized that even his most successful job placements did not guarantee the long-term happiness of the parties involved in the process, especially the placed candidates.

But with “headhunting” concluded, Smolen immediately seized a new opportunity: “I had discovered that an increasing number of my candidates expressed a longing to do meaningful work—work that is self-directed, profound, benefits people and the planet, and provides them with satisfaction. My new purpose is to use The Tightrope with Dan Smolen podcast to help workers like my former clients and candidates, but also many thousands of others whom I have never helped, follow their dreams to do meaningful work.”

He continues, “our guests on The Tightrope podcast are esteemed professionals and thought-leaders across a wide range of specializations who live meaningful lives and do meaningful work. And, we kick off our new season with Charles Glassman, MD, a board-certified internal medicine doctor who became one of the first physicians in the United States to ditch fee-for-service healthcare and adopt a concierge or patient subscription practice model. In doing so, Dr. Glassman spends more time carefully listening to his patients’ concerns and, by extension, aiding improvement of their overall health and wellness.” Smolen adds, “Dr. Glassman also helps guide some of his patients to achieve lasting meaningfulness in the work that they do.”

The first three episodes of The Tightrope with Dan Smolen’s Fall 2018 season are:

• Coach MD: How One Physician Leads Patients to Live, Better, Stronger, and More Meaningful Lives with guest, Charles Glassman, MD (stream date: Friday, August 31, 2018);

• Discovering Yourself: “Knowing Your Myers-Briggs Type” Opens Gateways to Meaningful Work with guest, Career Counselor and Myers-Briggs Master Practitioner Edythe Richards (stream date Friday, September 7, 2018), and;

• Transportation Equity: How One Scientist is Working to Re-Engineer the Quality of Urban Life with guest, Transportation Equity Expert Richard Ezike, PhD (stream date Friday, September 14, 2018).

The Tightrope with Dan Smolen streams on Apple Podcast and other channels. Listeners may subscribe to it by keywording “The Tightrope with Dan Smolen.” Additional new episodes will stream weekly well into December, 2018.
