Rank #20: HS #63 My Dream Job

Podcast cover
Read more
I've held a number of jobs that weren't exactly the jobs of my dreams. One job was at Macy's State Street in the Women's Shoe department in Chicago. I figured out it's not so important to find the job of your dreams. It's more important that the jobs you take are on the journey to the life of your dreams. And as long as you work around good people, pretty much anything is bearable.
