Check out Brian’s interview on NBC’s TODAY Show on December 3, which features a dream vacation on an Alpaca Ranch for the TODAY host! Whether your heart’s desire is to be a brew master, archeologist, choreographer, or spa owner, VocationVocations offers mentorships and on-site “working” vacations so you can test-drive that job you always yearned for.
Then read Brian’s book – it’s a goldmine! Of course it talks about the concept of vocationing and finding a mentor. But the chapters that really hit home with me were Fear (as in immobilizing you), Research (both “inside” you and “outside” in the world of work), and Action Plan (with a nifty chart encompassing issues such as Money, Logistics, and Relationships). These chapters would benefit any job-seeker and are a must-read.
Gaining clarity about the kind of job you really want, overcoming fears and obstacles, and devising a practical action plan are all important steps in the career transition process. Brian’s entertaining examples and stories, including his own admission that he had once been immobilized by fear himself, are encouraging and enlightening.
Give yourself permission to dream a bit this holiday season! You never know where it might lead…
