Testdrive Your Dreamjob

Testdrive your Dreamjob Paris

14- 16 March

Yes, you can try your hand at the career of your dreams without risking your present job, your next mortgage payment, or your kids’ future.

In this three day trip in Paris with Peter de Kuster as your travel guide you will discover how a ‘Testdrive in your Dreamjob’ – meeting rolemodels who are successful in a career you are thinking of or always wanted – can be the first step toward making that dream come true.

Revolutionary and practical, this hands-on journey from the founder of The Hero’s Journey will help you mesh your working life with your deepest sense of self as you learn how to:

  •  Plan a ‘Testdrive in your Dreamjob’ of your own in any career;
  •  Build the skills and gather the knowledge you’ll need to embark on your new career;
  •  Overcome the fear of starting your own business;
  •  Turn a layoff or other involuntary change into the opportunity of a lifetime;
  •  Design and create a dreamjob that does not exist … yet;
  •  Manage a smooth, safe transition from your present job to your dreamjob;
  •  Minimize financial risk as you embark on your bold new life.

We will travel in Paris in the footsteps of the movie Midnight in Paris where an advertising executive which is engaged to marry embarks on a midnight journey where he meets his heroes and heroines like Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Picasso, Dali, Gertrude Stein to get feedback on his career and life. A life transforming experience.  

You will meet in this journey professionals in Paris who have the dreamjob you are considering. When you are not sure which dreamjob you want you meet people from different professions. For example you are considering being a book writer,  a scriptwriter for movies or a culture journalist we plan meetings in the three days with a writer, a scriptwriter and a culture journalist in Paris. You will experience directly and first hand in meetings with rolemodels the passion, happiness and obstacles in having their dreamjob. You will be guided to extract the underlying principles which you can use in your own career.
