When the Job You Want Doesn’t Exist
Not all types of work exist as typical jobs. And it sounds really obvious, but it can be hard to internalize: Just because you can’t find a job listing for something doesn’t mean it’s not valid and valuable work. Creating your own job description lets you take even greater control in building the life you want. Write it out, see what it looks like and go from there. If nothing else, you can visualize where you want to go.
The thing that I actually really love doing, it really doesn't exist as like a typical nine to five. ~Elise Rorick Click To Tweet
