Vocation Vacations

Ever wondered what it's like to be a chocolatier? A choreographer? A farmer? Now you can find out from Vocation Vacations, a company that offers just that in the U.S. and the U.K. It's a short term mentoring program that offers sneak peeks into over 70 professional fields (with more in the works) without making the actual committed plunge. You'll learn the daily ins and outs of each profession, which may or may not disabuse you of your romantic notions of say, being surrounded by vats of melted chocolate all day as a chocolatier (my personal favorite), or strolling through the vineyard on a dewy morning to commune with your grapes in your wine maker fantasy. Vocation Vacations aims to help you get down to the nuts and bolts of the business, the daily reality minus the dream. What is life without mystery, you may ask. How many business owners would have taken the leap if they really knew what they were getting into? So many businesses fail because the owner didn't know what was involved in running it. You simply can't until you get into it. A little foresight can go a long way toward success. Doing a little extra research to see if your beloved job is really for you will save you money and years off your life.
