In this episode…
Colt Cabana is one of those people who attained his dream only to find out that it wasn’t all that he thought it would be. So much so that he wound up being fired from his role in the WWE. Looking back, Colt says that was the lowest point of his career and on this episode he shares what it meant to him to attain that level of success only to lose it.
Being at the height of your profession after many years of hard work is a wonderful feeling. When it’s a high profile position like being a star in the WWE, it’s even more exciting. Colt Cabana shares what it was like to be at the top and how he regrouped to build a new life after losing it all, on this episode.
Starting over is difficult for anyone, especially after you’ve already been to the top. Colt Cabana didn’t let the disappointment of losing his dream job slow him down. He took the experience he had as a WWE wrestler into a new realm – online entertainment via podcasting and Youtube and built a new life for himself that some would argue is far more successful.
Few people have the talent and appeal to make it as an internet personality, but Colt Cabana pulls it off. If you’re curious what is meant by that, check out his Youtube video series, “Worst Promo Ever.” You’ll get the idea of the kind of sharp mind and talent Colt has to make something incredibly funny out of nothing more than an idea.
