Testdrive Your Dreamjob

In Testdrive your Dream Job, you’ll discover in a journey in Paris in the footsteps of Julia Child how you can identify, explore and experience your creative dream job, and how or if you want to pursue it.

Peter de Kuster, founder of The Heroine’s Journey, offers professional, personal and financial perspectives on how to transition into a new career and turn your creative dream job into a reality without risking your current job or jeopardizing your financial stability.

By following this practical and encouraging self-discovery guide, you will gain a better understanding of who you are now; what fulfills you both personally and professionally; how to get from Point A to Point B on the road to your dream job; or perhaps satisfy your curiosity and gain a deeper appreciation for where you are now in your creative life and your creative career.

Testdrive your Dream Job as a concept is almost five hundred years old. People who travel to discover their vocation. As our heroine in Julie & Julia who follows in the footsteps of Julia Child.

After years of fantasy something about living the job and the life for just a few days, weeks or months empowered them to take action. Partly it was the learning – the concrete knowledge they gained about the desired profession or business. Partly it was the mentor who held their hand, boosted their confidence, and offered ongoing help. Partly it was the contacts they made, which made taking the next steps easier.

But above and beyond those practical things, there was something else the Testdrive in your Dream Job awakened and energized something deep inside them. It connected them with the truest part of themselves, a part that had previously felt dormant and that, once awakened, refused to be ignored.
