If you’re not working at your ideal job now, you owe it to yourself to take the time to find it. You spend too many hours each week at work to be doing something you don’t really want to be doing.

Make a decision not to settle for second best! For once, take charge and DREAM! Write down every aspect of your ideal job, and even write the model job description for your perfect job. Start with the ideal and only then move onto possible compromise areas.

Debra Hayes will be facilitating this interactive learning opportunity.
