  • 11. Wear a sandwich board stating your and stand in public places, near colleges, near places of business where you want to work. I think this strategy requires a giant step outside the comfort zone. It requires a lot of courage and overcoming limiting emotions:  Fear of exposure (physical/emotional)  Embarrassment  Feeling desperate
  • 12.  Fairy godmother grants wish for the perfect job In addition to the fairy godmother’s wish granting, completing some of the other tasks, such as define your unique talents and skills – develop a list of keywords, and then visualizing the ideal job are important to specify that perfect job!
