Thrive in Wildlife 2023 Career Challenge Day 1: Dream

Thrive in Wildlife 2023 Career Challenge Day 1: Dream

How excited are you to officially begin the Thrive in Wildlife Challenge and learn how to create your own roadmap leading you to your dream job?


You’re probably feeling ready to have a career with more certainty leading to more success and impact making a difference for wildlife.


It’s day one, and chances are throughout our time together you're going to have some a-ha moments that will start the momentum in your career, getting you excited for what’s to come in 2023 so make sure to listen closely. 


Today is all about creating a dream. You wouldn’t just show up to the airport and say “take me anywhere” to the person at the ticket counter, and the same should be true for your career. The first part of the roadmap is your endpoint - your dream job. 


Don’t have a dream job? Don’t worry. I lead you through a guided exercise that will help you visualize what’s ideal for you. 


So get ready to stop playing small, putting restrictions on the kinds of jobs you think you can get, and only going for “realistic” options. Today we are going to dream.
