20 Years in The BizPosted: 10/29/2010
I have now officially been a professional entertainer for over 20 years. Just over 20 years ago I quit my last “real job” as an engineer at IBM Research. What would have happened if I had stayed an engineer? Who knows. Maybe I would have retired by now, or maybe I’d be unemployed and homeless. Maybe I wouldn’t be alive at all. You never know. But I do know I’m happy with my decision and it’s been a good twenty years. I’ve gotten to see the world and make a lot of people happy doing what I love. I’m ready for at least another 20.
