In Episode 4 of Joe’s continuing saga, he takes us on a job-hunting journey in competitive La La Land (Los Angeles for the uninitiated). In his quest, Joe sold Hondas at a dealership. Actually, just one Honda. For a while he worked at a gym. His other job offers included DJing at a strip club and hanging sheet rock. He turned those down and didn’t get the job waiting tables at a 1980s Middle Ages concept restaurant. Joe eventually landed his “Dream Job”, but you’ll have to listen to the 2 podcast segments below to find out about that dream-come-true position. Spoiler alert: It’s in Hollywood. And no, it wasn’t being a Cabana Boy to the stars.
