Chicago Food Scene Disruptor Billy Jacobs “Walks the Tightrope” as First Guest, He Describes His Journey to Meaningful Work

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, September 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, veteran executive recruiter, author, and meaningful work advocate Dan Smolen announced the start of The Tightrope with Dan Smolen podcast’s Fall 2019 season. The first episode streams Friday, October 4, 2019, on Apple Podcast, Spotify, DanSmolen.com and other podcasting channels.

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 work that is profound, protects the planet, supports people and communities, and is fun to do—meaningful work. I 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 beautiful work dreams.”

He continues, “our guests on The Tightrope podcast are esteemed professionals and thought-leaders from a wide range of specializations who live meaningful lives and do meaningful work. We start off the new season by interviewing the engaging entrepreneur and Chicago food scene disruptor Billy Jacobs. He describes a meaningful work journey that brought fresh New York-style bagels to a city that never had them before through his Jacobs Brothers Bagels stores. Later, he founded Piece Pizzeria and Brewery where he serves up New Haven-style pizza and award-winning ales to thousands of appreciative foodies.” Joining Smolen and Jacobs on the episode is their shared childhood friend, Stu Katz, who provided Jacobs his counsel for the restaurant start-ups.
