Over half way now, and I’m learning a lot about myself by answering these prompts. I really recommend that, even if you don’t write a blog, you have a go at answering them yourself. I included the graphic I’m using on day 6s post, which you can find here. You can also catch up with the whole challenge from the beginning here. Today I’m looking at my Dream Job
My dream job has changed as I’ve gotten older. As a child, I dreamed of being a Marine Biologist, studying the behaviour patterns of Orcas off Johnstone Strait, British Colombia. I tailored my GCSE options towards getting a Marine Biology degree. Even after I finished my GCSEs and realised that the romanticised view I had of whale watching was not the reality of the job, I still tailored my degree to work with animals in some, non-veterinary way.
Since then life happened and the realisation that the dream job of my teens is no longer within reach, I had to change my focus. I now know a lot more about myself, my abilities and my failings – for want of a better word. I have found someone I look up to, not only in the personal ‘Idol’ way but also in the career aspect. That person is Kara Benz, better known as Boho Berry.
I would love to work from home, creating a successful business that fits around my family life. Using Boho Berry as a template for success, I have put a lot more effort into this blog as a springboard. Hence the 31-day challenge to get me into the habit of writing again. I also plan to make some YouTube videos to accompany the blog. Also, behind the scenes, I’m developing product ideas to go in my Etsy shop. I’ve been playing around with different jewellery making techniques, and need to hone my talents to produce a product people will actually want, that I can make quickly.
While I know that starting out in this way will not bring in the millions, I’m looking forward to finding a way to earn a living from home. When my daughter goes to full-time school next year, it will give me more time to work on my brand and manufacture products. It will be a slow process, but that’s part of the fun, I think.
What was your dream job when you were younger? Is it still the same? Are you on the path to getting your dream job, or already working in it? Let me know in the comments below.
