Questions for Cushlash Podcast (Poker pro gone corporate podcast)

edited January 22 in The Grind poker podcast
Upon graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2012, Taylor aka ‘cushlash’ moved to Las Vegas to pursue a career in poker. There he played live mid-stakes NLHE professionally for over 5 years, while also blogging about it in his 2+2 thread. In August of 2017 he transitioned to a traditional full-time job as a Marketing Analyst at Caesars Entertainment.

Some starting points-

1. Adjustment to less free time and way more structure - waking up early, listening to bosses etc.

2. Work environment - interactions with with poker players vs co-workers now.

3. Financial aspect - poker is likely better in the short term while a regular job is likely better in the long term.

    I assume this will be a sort of obvious question, but does Taylor regret going pro and entering the "real" work force late, or did he on balance enjoy his time as a pro?

    Do you still live the same lifestyle just weekends only or no?

    What do you miss most/least about being a poker pro?

    Obviously it’s early to ask this question, but, do you think you’d ever go back to being a poker pro?

    What was the corporate job interview process like? How did he sell his poker experience as relevant experience? Does he have any recommendations as far as things we can do as poker players to stay marketable to the corporate world?

    Damn. This is actually a very good question. Unfortunately we already recorded and I didn't ask him.

    I will ask him myself and post the reply.

    I guess it wasn’t so early after all! Lol.
