    These are fabulous tips! While I have a gig that I consider my “dream” job right now, I know that’s something that’s always going to be evolving–I’m going to want to opportunities, new adventures and new challenges, so my “dream job” is going to morph with those changes. Keeps these tips in mind for the future!

    1. Ladies – thank you so much for reading! For those of you girls who can now confirm that they have their dream job, congrats! YOU DID IT! For the girls who are still searching, know that your time will come too if you continue to work hard and listen to that wild and free heart of yours (as sappy as that sounds, it’s true).

    I love explaining to people what I do, since most of them are clueless. I always get a “wow, that’s so cool” response.

  3. Wow, I can’t even explain how helpful this post was. I’m currently feeling that maybe it’s time to move on from my own career as a teacher because the daily unhappiness, anxiety, etc I’ve had for the last few years. Thanks for all of the great, so helpful!…life changing actually.

    My dream job would be blogging from home full time, with my husband home all day with me hanging out in pajamas on the couch. Yes, this sounds great!

    I love the Bozena flats in black. They look classy and comfortable.

  8. I like #4 and #5 the most. When you have a job that you love you kind of feel geeky telling people about it and the weekend is something you do as a quick break. A great job makes you look forward to everything you need to to do on Monday. Something else to add is that if you find yourself doing some of the same things on your own time that you do when you’re working, it’s a great sing that you enjoy your job.
