On this week’s episode

  • On this week’s episode of You Have a Cool Job, we talk to Tony He, a snowboarding instructor and coach for the Chinese province team, the Hebei Para-Snowsports Team.
  • Tony shares what it’s like teaching everyone from beginner to advanced riders at his home base, Keystone, Colorado, and the different types of risks he manages.
  • Over the summer, Tony makes his way to New Zealand, where he coaches the Para-Snowsports Team. He works with these athletes on their racing and adaptability in different conditions, and some go on to compete in the Paralympic Games.
  • Despite the passion Tony has for the sport and his students, he made a point to mention that he works in the service industry, and that it is not all fun and games.

About the show

You Have a Cool Job is a podcast hosted by Taylor Sienkiewicz from Peterson’s. The show highlights professionals who have a unique, interesting, uncommon, or otherwise cool job.

Our goal is to motivate you and show how interesting, fulfilling, and anything-but-average your career can be, and we’ll do this by talking with people who took a path less traveled. We ask these fascinating individuals how they got to where they are in their career based on their education, experience, and influences;  why they love their job; and lots more.
