Slash Careers on the Today Show!

Today was an exciting moment for me and for anyone else who has been following the growing interest in the slash effect. The Today show did a segment on slash careers this morning and they featured two especially inspiring people from the book, Deborah Rivera, an executive recruiter/chef-hotelier, and Rashid Silvera, a high school teacher/fashion model. You can get a glimpse of each of them in their dual lives, and see photos of some other folks from the book on this video clip.

Also pictured in the segment were Bonnie Duncan, a dancer/teacher/puppeteer, Alex von Bidder, a restaurateur/yoga instructor, and Bob Alper, a rabbi/stand-up comic.

Workaholism… who me?

I had a brief appearance on CNBC this morning talking about the rise in workaholism. As my mom commented, my piece is so short that you can miss it if you blink. But it was great practice. You can watch it here.

Ironically, I left my Blackberry in a taxi on the morning I taped this segment. It wasn’t returned and I was Blackberry-less for about four days that week. Aside from the initial few hours of withdrawal, those were the best four days of the past year. The Blackberry wasn’t returned and I had insurance so I got a new one within a week. Wish I could tell you I stayed off the wagon.
