Disney dream comes true for Peter Whitehead, Creative Director for the Walt Disney Hometown Museum.
I remember my Father asking me what I wanted to be when I grew up – I had no idea – I didn’t even know what they options were. As a result, I went down a number of wrong roads before accidentally discovering my passion for creative and design. Somewhere along my winding career path, I met Peter. His ability to think big changed my life and put me on a path to success. Peter eventually found his own path to his ultimate career working for the Walt Disney Hometown Museum in Marceline, Missouri. Peter, a life-long Disney fan, now runs this shrine to all thing Walt Disney in the very town that Walt grew up in. Marceline will transport you to a real-life town that inspired Main Street USA.

In addition to the interview with Peter, Rick talks about his own career path and all the twists and turns that eventually lead him to starting his own creative design agency. One of the most challenging questions for kids is “what do you want to be when you grow up?”. Many think that they will be able to play video games for a living – and, some actually do. The root problem is that kids generally have no idea what kinds of career options are out there. They need to find their passion early so they can begin acquiring the skills that will help them achieve their dream job.
And, Rick also talks about his latest side-hustle: voice acting. He has begun auditioning for voiceover work and has already had some success in the field. He plans to continue taking voice-acting lessons to improve his skills.
