Welcome to the first episode of the Promote Yourself Podcast (Subscribe on iTunes). It will be a weekly show airing every Monday, giving you the best career advice, the latest workplace trends and access to today’s brightest stars in business. I’ve been working on this show for months now and am excited about the possibilities and the ability to share this information with you in another more personal medium.
The show is divided into three segments. The first is where I review the latest workplace trends that will affect your career. The second is where I answer your questions and feel free to tweet or email me them for forthcoming shows. The third is where I spotlight the careers of various professionals, executives and celebrities.

Segment #3: Guest interview
This week I speak to Tim Ferriss, who is the author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers The 4-Hour Workweek, The 4-Hour Body and now The 4-Hour Chef. He’s been called “The Superman of Silicon Valley” by Wired and one of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Business People.” In this interview, he talks about what cooking can teach you about learning.
