HOST JACKIE TANTILLO - "Apply Yourself And Do Your Best" with Gordon Firemark S2E2

Should Have Listened to My Mother Podcast

At a young age, Gordon started out his career working with sound, lighting and special effects in theatre and completing his B.A. in radio, television and film. Gordon Firemark certainly had enough credentials for a very successful career. Yet apparently it wasn't enough, or maybe, he eventually came around and listened to his mother:) He got a law degree and is  most generous with his time and expertise in the field of entertainment law.  He blended interests from both sides of his brain, his talent and natural ability to help others. He's a hard worker, a committed dad and  has a    happy disposition.I so enjoyed hearing  stories of his childhood and his mother Roz  (Rosalynn), who was compassionate, encouraging, believer in a strong education and a big advocate for gratitude and appreciation.  "My mom enjoyed the moments but didn't necessarily feel the need to make the moments happen", say Gordon.Mark has an interesting story he shares about his great-grandfather emigrating from Eastern Europe to the United States and his port of entry was Ellis Island.Hope you enjoy this episode of Should Have Listened To My Mother
