Test Drive Your Dream Job

November 17, 2008 |

“A job should not just put bread on the table but also a smile on your face.” That’s the philosophy of Brian Kurth, founder of an innovative company, Vocation Vacations , that offers brief, pay-for-mentoring opportunities. A light bulb went off for Brian during a vacation he designed for himself as a break from his corporate job. Now he’s an expert in dream job and life style exploration, featured on NBC’s Today, Oprah magazine and the WSJ.
What a great opportunity to reality check your fantasies. Want to run a cozy B&B? One mentor comments on his daily laundry and kitchen detail: “This is how I spend my time. Is this what you want to be doing?” Clients can gift their child or spouse with their dream job. One’s husband said his stint as a vitner was the best gift he’d ever received.

Vocation Vacations offers over 100 opportunities, from learning the ropes of owning a coffee shop, to sports announcer, landscape designer, actor, florist, alpaca trainer, private detective and wine maker, to name a few. In addition to mentoring vacations, packages for career changers includes personality testing, and Pre- and Post-Vocation Vacation career coaching sessions from one of its high caliber affiliated coaches.

Brian himself offers a step-by-step Vocationing Process™ that includes 8 key steps to creating or finding the work you love, from his book, Test-Drive Your Dream Job – A Step-By-Step Guide to Finding and Creating the Work You Love. He says it’s never too late to give something a try: “Be smart. Take calculated risks, but don’t be foolish. This is a tool to start the process.”
