2017 A to ZChallenge Theme Reveal #AtoZReveal

Today’s the day: It’s time for the annual A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal!

In the past, I have tackled guidebooks to my various hometowns (Chicago, Montreal, San Diego), using the A to Z style to give some unique perspectives on the whole travel guide concept.

But this year, I’m doing something a little bit different.

So far I’ve written two books about finding a career for ReferencePoint Press, a San Diego educational publisher. My first book, Careers in Gaming, debuted in January of this year, and my second book, Careers in Digital Media, is coming this fall. I’m currently working on a third book, called Careers If You Like Music, for the same publisher.

Since I started writing about all of these interesting jobs people have in the video game industry, the world of digital media, and the ever-changing music industry, I asked myself: what do all of these jobs have in common?

The answer is simple: they’re all super cool!

Now, I know you are probably thinking, “But, Laura, how can work be cool?” And that’s a good question, especially since so many people seem to hate their jobs.

Here’s what I think: if you find a job you really love, it will never feel like work. There’s even a saying that has been attributed to everyone from Confucius to Mark Twain to Marc Anthony:

So what does that mean?

It means you need to find one of the World’s Coolest Jobs, so you’ll be able to wake up every day excited to go to work!

And just how will you do that?

Follow along as I take you on a quick tour of 26 awesome jobs, from A to Z, during the month of April. I’ll be posting about my first Cool Job – which starts with the letter A – on April 1st, over at my new blog, WorldsCoolestJobs.com.

Don’t forget to subscribe to the blog so you won’t miss a single post, and I’ll see you there on April 1st!

    I’ve been fortunate in that for most of my work life I enjoyed what I was doing. Everyone should be so blessed and they can. Maybe you inspire some to seek new careers. I think I sense another book coming from your April posts. It would be great.

    Glad you’re with us again!
