We are thrilled to announce that Holman will be hosting a career-building session with Nathan Gebhard, co-founder of Roadtrip Nation, at SXSW in Austin, Texas on March 17, 2015! The session is entitled, “Build a Life, Not a Resume.” Here’s the blurb:
You are not just your job title. See why everyone should build a life—not a resume—with this discussion that explores the importance of integrating what you love into your work. Join Nathan Gebhard, cofounder of Roadtrip Nation, the organization dedicated to helping people create fulfilling worklives, and Holman Wang, who quit his job as a lawyer to create the bestselling felt art board books that distill great literature into 12-word narratives, as they share examples of those who are fashioning meaningful livelihoods around what matters to them. Through conversation, attendees will identify how can do the same.
For those of you who don’t know, Holman is a former corporate lawyer who quit his job in late 2012 to produce children’s books full time. Holman will talk about this meandering career path with Nathan, and share ideas on finding your passion, having the courage to change careers, and putting your finger on what success really means.
Hope to see you down in Austin!
