Paul Lisnek recalls that one wise piece of advice from his guidance counselor during his sophomore year that steered him to become the nationally recognized television commentator, author, speaker, corporate trainer, trial consultant and lawyer that he is today.  Join us in an inspiring episode of Someone Gets Me as Paul shares how he's come full circle in his journey by following his passions, his mindset of always saying yes to his inner calling and maximizing time and resources to create a legacy.  Key points covered in this episode: ✔️  If Paul didn't turn to the communications building that day in his sophomore years, he'd indeed become an accountant doing taxes. His advice for those who are in their 20s, pursue your passion because you only get one shot in this life. But for those who are in their 40s and 50s – stop looking back regretting it. It's never too late to do something else then and pursue your dream.    ✔️ If you said "yes" to something and it didn't feel right, you could say "no, thank you" later. Paul proves that as we grow through life, saying YES is vital because you can always change your mind. But if you get used to turning down every new chance or opportunity, you will never know where it's going to take you.    ✔️ A café named after Paul in his college at the University of Illinois serves as an inspiration and support for students who dream of blazing new paths like Paul.   ✔️ Paul Lisnek has shown authenticity in his long career by melding his gifts and passions: politics and entertainment. Respected in both worlds, he ensures to give back with his wisdom, time and resources.   Paul Lisnek is the multi-Emmy, Telly, Cablefax and Communicator Award winning political analyst for WGN-TV and anchor of WGN-TV Political Report seen every Sunday morning. Paul also hosts the podcast for WGN Radio called "Paul Lisnek Behind the Curtain," which can be heard anywhere podcasts are offered. He hosts "Broadway In Chicago Backstage," featuring the casts and creative of all the major shows opening in Chicago including Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen and the Upcoming Pre-Broadway premiere of "Paradise Square." He anchors Newsmakers for the Comcast Network as well. Paul is the author of 14 books, including his latest mystery series titles: "Assume Guilt" and "Assume Treason," the 2021 Winner of the Indie Book Award for Finalist, Best Mystery.    The Museum of Broadcast Communication in Chicago is home to the Paul M Lisnek Gallery, a permanent exhibit honoring Paul's long career in TV and Radio and presents some of his extensive TV and film memorabilia collection.   Listen to Paul Lisnek Behind The Curtain: https://wgnradio.com/wgn-plus/paul-lisnek-behind-the-curtain/ FB: https://www.facebook.com/PaulLisnek IG: https://www.instagram.com/paul_lisnek/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/paul-lisnek-3374015/   ___________________________________________________________________________________ How to Connect with Dianne A.
