Episode 4: Cliff Hakim

"Cliff Hakim started out as a public school teacher. He loved the work, but not the low pay. So he embarked on a series of work transitions, first into the corporate world, then starting his own firm, eventually becoming a sought-after author and career coach. There was a logical flow to all these changes, but recently Cliff took a different kind of turn, perhaps the biggest leap of his life. He and Joel talk about trusting your gut, sensing when things start to get stale, and mustering the courage to change."

Episode 3: Chaplain Taymullah Abdur-Rahman

Imam Taymullah Abdur-Rahman is currently a chaplain at Harvard Univesity. He's a lecturer, family counselor and educator in and around New England, and worked as a chaplain in the Massachusetts Correctional System for seven years. But things started out quite differently for Taymullah. As a 13 year old Roxbury kid named Tyrone Sutton, he became the lead singer of a major pop sensation boy band called Perfect Gentleman, the opening act for New Kids on The Block. He toured for four years in his teens, performing in front of stadiums filled with screaming fans. Taymullah tells Joel the story of how his life moved from the precipice of mega-celebrity, through some very tough personal times, to a life of deep faith, with ongoing struggles, today.
