What’s it like to say “yes” to yourself and go after your dreams? To quit your corporate job and start your own business?
What are the ups? The downs? The moments of confusion and inspiration? How do you push forward despite your fears? Why are you able to succeed?
Enter Prologue Profiles, a podcast series bringing you inspiring interviews with passionate people pursuing their career dreams.
Guests include entrepreneurs, artists, and corporate navigators. Some guests left one career to start a new one, others persisted in a certain direction and achieved a breakthrough.
Why Does Prologue Profiles Exist?
Generation Y has dozens of reasons to not follow their dreams: a bad economy, it’s too risky, you could fail. As a result many millennials are stuck in a dead end career living their Plan B or C lives.
However there are also millennials who are choosing to ignore this negativity and go after their dreams anyway and are living their Plan A Life™.
Some call them crazy, we call them Generation Why Not™.
Prologue Profiles was created to share the stories of Generation Why Not™ to inspire you to live your Plan A Life™. Right now.

Who’s Behind This?
It was the Spring of 2011, Dan was 27 years old and felt trapped at his desk job in NYC. He was desperate to hit the eject button, but not sure how.
He decided he would take action—he’d become a teacher.
Dan joined Teach For America, quit his job, and drove 1,200 miles south to the Mississippi Delta where he committed to teach for the next 2 years.
He didn’t make it through the summer.
Dan found myself living back at home without a plan. Confusion, frustration and depression took over.
Eventually he realized that he’s not the only one trying to figure things out. (Btw, this is the book that helped him get out of bed again (specifically Part 2))
At the same time, some of his friends were taking risks making their dreams happen. Dan felt compelled to share their stories to inspire people like him.
The thinking is: by understanding what’s possible, we’re more open to creating new possibilities for ourselves.
And here we are.

Proudly based in the historic district of Jersey City, NJ
