How to Know if You've Found Your Dream Job

The internet is flooded with people throwing around the phrase “Dream Job”, but few rarely take the time to define it.

Let me clear it up for you.

If you look at it from the flip side, you could define it as a job that you don’t hate. But that isn’t a very good definition because there are probably any number of jobs which you wouldn’t hate but you wouldn’t love either.

Are you proud of what you do? What does it mean to you to spend your time doing something you love?

Careers come in all shapes and sizes, and your dream job is rarely discovered overnight. It’s a process of trial and error, experience, failure, and lessons learned – but that doesn’t mean it’s not out there.

MONEY ISN'T THE ONLY CURRENCY

In the summer of 2016 I was fortunate to be able to do some solo traveling throughout Thailand for a month.
