What would your dream job be? Strange question I know, but bare with me For me, my dream job was always professional rugby. I would’ve sold my soul when I was a kid to play the sport I loved for a living! Luckily I managed to make this a reality but I’ll be honest… The expectation was always better than the reality And since I have taken a step back… My dream job ideology has changed! Now I want to travel the world as much as I can, enjoy my training (whilst still being competitive) but most importantly…help others realise they can do what ever they want to do. I’m not really a fan of the education system, channelling us into mainstream jobs when often people used to have big dreams. I think ambition is great! But the rat race can be engulfing. However now days…anything can be a job, even sleeping The world is changing and opportunity is everywhere! As long as you look hard enough for it So I am intrigued, if you could do anything for a living, what would it be?
