    1.What do people typically think of when they think of a “Dream Job?”
    It depends on the person, but I think people think of a job as a dream job when it is something that is fun or exciting or perceived as important to do (is interesting and fits their personality), something that they are excellent at, and something that provides the lifestyle that they would like to have.
    2.Describe some elements of a dream job… for you.

    For me a dream job allows me the privelige of empowering others, has tons of variety and is creative. It allows me to pick my hours and allows me to be where I am most needed. It would also be great if I didn’t have to worry about paying the bills every month.

    3.Who has a “dream job?” The Dalai Lama–he inspires people across the world, seems to be very happy in doing what he does, and he doesn’t have to wear a tie.

    Not for nothing, but I’d add that you seem to have a pretty good gig, Mitch.

    Hey Garry! Thanks for your thoughts buddy! Great stuff. You rock brutha. And thanks. I have to say I feel wildly blessed to get to do what I do. It makes for a wild ride some days… but it’s a lot of fun. Thanks again buddy!

    1. What do people typically think of when they think of a “Dream Job?”
    Doing something they love doing, have freedom where time is concerned, aren’t micromanaged, and make a lot of $!
    2. Describe some elements of a dream job… for you.
    Doing something where I recognize I “make a difference,” can innovate and execute my own vision, flexibility in how I manage my time and make decisions, and yes, $ would be nice.
    Who has a “dream job?”
    I saw an interview with the creator of Tom’s shoes — HE seems to have a dream job — he had a vision of making a difference, he has combined that philanthropic dream with real business acumen, is making $ (would be my guess) to support his vision, and seems so joyous!!

    1.What do people typically think of when they think of a “Dream Job?”
    I think a “dream job” is a job that feels like it is not a job. One that is needed to be done and has an end result. A flexible schedule and has both financial and emotional rewards.
    2. Describe some elements of a dream job… for you.
    For me a dream job would give me a chance to begin a project that is interesting to me and to feel that when It is completed the result makes a difference to others,
    3.Parents have a “dream job”. They are given this project of a beautiful pure life to guide and nuture. A parent has the to be a teacher, a nurse, a wise old sage, a hip listener and a warm place of comfort, and the boss. In other words, the CEO of the HOME.

    1.What do people typically think of when they think of a “Dream Job?”
    Financially rewarding, meaniful, working for a great cause.
    2.Describe some elements of a dream job… for you.
    Flexible, creative. Of course being able to provide for myself financially. To be able to make a difference in someone’s life in a real and concrete way.
    3.Who has a “dream job?”
    I think anyone who is doing what they love to do, has fun doing it, gets great personal satisfaction from doing it, and feels like it is what the Lord wants them to be doing has a dream job.

    Would I do it? I think almost anyone would want to feel that way about what they are doing. And most days I’m fortunate enough to be able to say I do!

    Thanks for posing the question, Mitch! As the founder of, I’d say this as a passionate dreamer myself: A dream job means doing what you love to do. It means that you are thinking about it morning, afternoon and evening but not because you are worried about it. Instead, it’s what makes you come alive. After you’ve put in a full day, you are ready for more, and you can’t even explain it. A dream job should come easily to you because it uses your God-given talents, but it should challenge you in a way that you believe there is always more to discover and do. Finally, a dream job should benefit others and not merely the person who has the job.

    Question 1: I think many people will think of dream jobs as being, fun, inventive, flexiable,where people make a difference, become highly recognized for the work they do and are able to financially make a good living.

    2. For my self I’m able to do my dream job occationally, I write. Never as much time as I would like , but being able to communicate through the written word is an element of my dream job. Oh yeah, would like to be published would be a bonus.

    3. I believe anyone who is doing what they love and are good at have a “Dream Job”. I think you Mitch have a dream job, you do things you love and make a difference, but someone who teaches or a nurse or someone who drives a truck may have the dream job they have always wanted. A dream job has to be a state of mind.

    Dream Job:
    Where dreams become reality! Where sharing and exploring common ground, finding the essence and discovering a special path to making it all happen is an everyday occurrence.
    Where going to work each day feels like stepping onto my own personal playground with MONKEY BARS- to challenge me, a RACE TRACK- to push my limits and set new records, a BALANCE BEAM- to walk the line with poise and grace, a SANDBOX-where building castles and statues is an everyday occurrence, HOP SCOTCH- to remember that we sometimes have to step in and outside of the boxes and JUMP ROPE- where it takes co-operation and a little bit o’rhythm to keep the flow.
