Thomas MacEntee Featured in Article at nextavenue and Forbes

I’ve been featured in an article entitled Career Shift: Turn Your Hobby Into a New Job at nextavenue which is a collaborative media platform by media partners PBS, American Public Television, National Educational Telecommunications Association, and Huffington Post.

I was interview a few weeks ago by Nancy Collamer, a career coach, speaker and author of Second-Act Careers: 50+ Ways to Profit From Your Passions During Semi-Retirement. You can learn more about Nancy at her website is MyLifestyleCareer.com.

The opportunity to share my “second life” career path is an honor and in the article you’ll learn how after my last firm went bankrupt, I was able to transform my hobby of genealogy into a profession. In addition, from what the author has told me, this article will be carried on Forbes.com early next week.

Stay tuned!

Appearance on The Sunday Papers with Rick Kogan, WGN AM Radio

In case you missed it, early this morning, August 21, 2011, I was a guest on the WGN AM Radio show The Sunday Papers with Rick Kogan.

During the segment, I not only discussed some of the basic trends in the genealogy industry and why family history is becoming more and more popular, but I also had a chance to mention the upcoming FGS 2011 conference in Springfield, Illinois, September 7-10, 2011.

You can listen to the segment by clicking the link below:

I guess the episode went well since Rick said – live on the air – that he’d love to have my come into the studio for an expanded segment about genealogy! So I’ll keep you posted on the progress of that project!

And many thanks to ISGS member Linda Swisher who used her contacts to arrange for my appearance on The Sunday Papers!
