I've known John LaLoggia for a over a decade. We were college buddies back in the day. He and I are both millennials but we're older millennials. We've known each other long enough to remember the "poke" button on Facebook. We shared a lot of common interests at that time and it was great to reconnect with John in a one on one (kind of) setting to just have a real conversation. John recently released Sh*tty Jobs: The Guide to Surviving a Recession. When I finished it, I knew I had to get him on the show. He has a viewpoint that I think many people our age and younger can empathize with.
In this conversation, we touched on why he finally decided to write the book, how people who are in bad work situations can cope, and what the future of the employer/employee relationship should look like in a successful business. I can tell you after reading the book, I can't think of anyone else I know personally who has experienced so many awful employment environments. Oh and he's also really funny! My hope is that his comedic timing and delivery both in the book and in this podcast episode can really help readers and listeners keep things in perspective even if they're struggling during tough times.
Don't forget, you can check out John and buy his book by following this link to his website.
