HOW TO CREATE “WINNING CONDITIONS” FOR YOUR CAREER
Have you had that moment you were watching a tv show or reading an article and said, “Wow! That would be so cool!”?
Maybe it was when you realized that someone has to go and visit all the exotic places on the travel channel to make the shows, or when you saw the cakes being made on “Cake Boss”, or when you read a job description of a role that sounded super fun.
Enter Christine Hofbeck.
Here’s the difference between her and the average person.
Back in 2000, when the TV reality series Survivor came out she watched it for the first time. Like so many other people at the time, she thought, “Wow! It would be amazing to be on Survivor.” However, unlike all of those other people, she relentlessly pursued for 16 years, even when her friends and coworkers thought she was crazy for putting in applications year after year.

You’ll hear about how that set of experiences and the pursuit of a dream completely changed her life and her work… and even how she had some incredible embarrassing moments in front of millions of people.
Listen to the podcast episode today to hear her full story.
