Okay, so no one actually landed their dream job during the six-week Livin’ the Dream program—but Isabel, Molly, and Sarah gained skills and insight that give them a serious edge.

With their advice and a little direction, you can, too.

Isabel - Livin' the Dream Once-shy Isabel found her inner sales whiz in mock interviews with a friend.

“Preparation and practice are absolutely necessary. Know yourself--your work history, your strengths, your weaknesses. Understand the employer and the position you’re applying for, and practice your answers to likely questions.”
Molly - Livin' the Dream Molly, the would-be special effects makeup artist, put herself out there to start building a crucial network.

"Support and networking leads can come from anywhere, so you always have to be ready to accept the help of others and run with it."
Sarah - Livin' the Dream Sarah, seeking a new career, tapped the wisdom of friends, acquaintances, even total strangers.

"The right job won't just appear: you need to be proactive. Challenge yourself to meet new people, learn new skills, and study industries you’re interested in. The more you do these things, the less scary and more exciting they become!"

Stay tuned for upcoming programs that could change your life and boost your wealth.
