Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
Hey guys, I’m excited to bring you my very first post as the Resident Career Expert at MYCC. I’m extremely honored to share stories of my own career missteps and lessons I’ve learned along the way. From leaving my dream job at a major television network in New York to losing the next job in the middle of a recession, I’ve learned a lot about being pushed, forced and kicked out of my comfort zone. My goal in writing for MYCC is to help you right where you are: fully aware of your own greatness, but unsure of the steps to take to live the life you want. Click here to read the rest of my post!
Meet Jasmin Goodman, professor and founder of an online TV network!
What is it that you do for a living? Describe in full detail. What are your day-to-day tasks?
I am a professor of Video Production at the Art Institute of Atlanta. I am also the Founder and President of Project Blaq, an online TV network that features high-quality black web series, documentaries and short films.
My schedule changes every. single. day. I typically teach early- to mid-mornings...followed by whatever God brings my way. I get to work early to prep for class before heading in to a two- to four-hour lecture. Most days I'm interrupted by former students dropping by to say hello, ask questions, vent about life and (sometimes) keep my current students in check (which I appreciate!)

Press on. Nothing can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; the world is full of unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
