There is no such thing as a Santa Claus – and there’s certainly no such thing as the
perfect career. That’s what many people really think, and it’s sad, because there
are plenty of rewarding, challenging and fulfilling career opportunities that allow
creative people to use their gifts and be rewarded handsomely for their efforts.
Those who settle for less than the best simply haven’t found the right job – yet. You
can have it all when it comes to a creative career – if you know how.
With the re opened The Royal on Regent Street David Chipperfield shows once
more what creativity and courage can bring you in business. Awesome.
The fact is that most people hate their jobs. They would rather be doing some-
thing else – anything else. It doesn’t have to be that way. What if I told you that
you would never have to work another day in your life? Would you be interested?
When you find the right fit in a career, it no longer feels like work. You wake up
every day excited about how you earn your living. This perfect harmonizing of
your talents, skills, personality and work style creates a passion and a desire as well
as a feeling of contentment that is worth more than gold.
It can be yours, if you will read this travel guide of London
You can start your journey with the Royal.
The challenge of this journey is that the creative business is very different from other
businesses. To get ahead, you sometimes have to zigzag to the top. Let the stories
of creative heroes and heroines of London show you when to zig and when to zag
to make the most of the opportunities out there.
Finding contentment in your career is a lot like looking for treasure. A golden egg.
Using a map of London you embark on a journey, an adventure in search of
yourself. The thing is, there isn’t a golden (or orange) egg waiting for you when
you get to the spot marked ‘X’ on the map. The buried treasure is within you. The
pursuit of the gold (or the goal) is the reward. Because, when it comes to a career,
there is no ‘there’ there. It is all a quest. Enjoying the quest is what success is all
about.
David Bowie, Mick Jagger and Lou Reed on their quest in Café Royal
This is the age of opportunity for the creative person. Innovation and ideas are
gold. Ridicule and red tape are being replaced with respect and rewards for the
clever and creative person. The business environment is changing, and changing
for the better – for you. Are you ready for these exciting times ahead?
This travel guide of London will put you in a position to prosper. What parents, tea-
chers and bosses might see as problems (sloppiness, habitual tardiness, short atten-
tion span, nonconformism) can actually be hidden assets in the search for work in
a rewarding and interesting creative career.
Intuition, emotion, divergent thinking, daydreaming, thriving on chaos, big – pic-
ture thinking, cleverness, open – mindedness and an ability to play and have fun
are virtues in the right setting.
Elisabeth Taylor frequented the Royal in her thriving days – shooting ‘Cleopatra’
and loving Richard Burton
Even so, it’s not exactly easy to build a career in the creative business world. You
have to be able to deal with rejection. It is a part of everyday life for the creative
person.
There is also that funny feeling that you don’t quite fit in – and you don’t. An
unconventional person with unconventional ideas you are often seen as imma-
ture, temperamental, moody, difficult, distracted, irresponsible, and irrational.
The truth is, you can be your wonderful self and still get ahead in the business
world. This travel guide of London will help you manage your career using a whole
– brain approach that takes advantage of the way you are, without forgetting the
way the world works.
The Hero’s Journey
It’s time to move on, move up, and move out with a new mission. The Hero’s Jour-
ney is about taking charge of your destiny so that no idiot can controle your fate.
Most books are very thorough when it comes to identifying and informing you
about the problems and pitfalls of a creative career.
What they lack, however, is the what the hell am i supposed to do about it? part.
I decided to make the Hero’s Journey travel guides about real life heroes land
heroines of past and present who visited the Royal like Oscar Wilde, HC Wells and
Conan Doyle with heavy on concrete tips, anecdotes and lessons to be learned
from them.
You already know the problems and pitfalls of a creative enterprise and career.
You deal with them every day. So let’s start our journey and tackle them. I’ll try to
ease up on the theoretical stuff and instead offer many stories of creative heroes
and heroines with their practical real life strategies, applicable tips and techniques.
New creative careers and enterprises are popping up all the time. There has never
been a better time to strike out on your own. This is your time to shine as a crea-
tive person. The future looks bright. Many of the current trends favor your preferred
mode of operation – self – realiance, zigzagging to the top, rapid change, multi-
tasking, chaos, adaptability, intuition, training and retraining.
This travel guide will show you how to find your career niche, and then how to earn
a living doing what you love. You will learn how to overcome the challenges the
creative right brainer faces, and how to make your nature and your creativity work
for you. You’ll learn how to market yourself even in a crowded marketplace, sur-
vive and thrive in the battlefield that is entrepreneurship. How to be your own boss
and work for others, take the ‘free” out of “freelance”, rise to the top without step-
ping on too many toes, and use your natural abilities to find a perfect pitch and
harmony in your work world.
The Hero’s Journey is in reality about your life. There is a direct, undeniable cor-
relation between your career and your life. It’s less about what you do for a living
than what you can live with doing. Finding fun and fulfillment at work spills over into
the rest of your life. Without it, your health will suffer, your creativity will suffer, your
performance will suffer – and so will everybody around you. You don’t need to live
that way.
If you are thinking of giving up on a creative career and getting a “real” job, stop
right there. When you settle for less than what’s best for you, you instantly get less
than you settled for. Don’t sell yourself short. The regret will eat you up inside. Don’t
miss your chance; it may be right around the corner. Instead, get going and go
for it – be bold. Use the strategies of heroes and heroines in London to give you an
advantage.
Don’t let others push boulders in your path and fill your head with facts like “most
businesses fail in the first year,” “It’s too competitive out there,” “there are no
(dancing) jobs” “you don’t have enough experience or talent, “ “ you have no
agent,”. It’s bad enough that these insecure and misinformed people are telling
you why you can’t succeed. It’s worse if you believe them. Don’t let anyone talk
your dreams down.
One of places full of the hero’s journey stories in London is the Royal.
A place larger than life.
This travel guide through London is for creative people in all walks of life – carpen-
ter or composer, dancer or painter, poet or musician, philosopher or travel guide,
magician or designer, architect or writer, actor or account manager. It isn’t meant
to apply to just the glamour jobs; whatever form your creativity takes, you can ap-
ply these stories.
For everyone who tells you “you can’t make a living doing that” there are hund-
reds and thousands of examples of creative heroes and heroines in all the cities
of the world who found a way to turn something they thought was fun and would
even do for free into a fulfilling life and career.
I will help you as your travel guide to take your powerful creative energy and har-
ness it, and you will beat the odds, making a living doing what you love to do.
Your life will become a hero’s journey story.
Your Story
Few people know what they want when they grow up, and even fewer creative
people want to grow up. Maybe you won’t discover your true calling until you test-
drive several dream jobs and work with some rolemodels. Isn’t it better to testdrive
them, using that incredible imagination of yours than waste years on a dead-end-
job? One of the key things you’ll work on here is defining what you want to do (not
for the rest of your life, but what you want to do now) and eliminating the careers
that aren’t a fit.
The choices that lead to a life of creative expression and financial security are here
for the making. The catch is that creative careers are often unconventional and in
some cases completely unchartered. The challenge is that there are a million dif-
ferent things you could do.
The key to success in any career is clarity. Becoming clear about who you are and
what you love is the first part of this travel guide through London. Then how to get
what you want is covered in great detail. It’s hard work, but this is your chance to
reinvent yourself. Don’t let it pass you by.
From London with love

The Hero's Journey in London Promo

  • 1. The Hero’s Journey LONDON in Discover how to earn Your Money, doing what You Love
  • 2. Travel in a worldcity and meet your heroes and heroines who earn their money doing what they love. They will inspire you to create your own legend. From London with love Peter de Kuster Founder of The Hero’s Journey with Rachelle Wessels
  • 3. Starting Your Journey; at The Royal London
  • 4. Starting Your Journey; at The Royal London There is no such thing as a Santa Claus – and there’s certainly no such thing as the perfect career. That’s what many people really think, and it’s sad, because there are plenty of rewarding, challenging and fulfilling career opportunities that allow creative people to use their gifts and be rewarded handsomely for their efforts. Those who settle for less than the best simply haven’t found the right job – yet. You can have it all when it comes to a creative career – if you know how. With the re opened The Royal on Regent Street David Chipperfield shows once more what creativity and courage can bring you in business. Awesome. The fact is that most people hate their jobs. They would rather be doing some- thing else – anything else. It doesn’t have to be that way. What if I told you that you would never have to work another day in your life? Would you be interested? When you find the right fit in a career, it no longer feels like work. You wake up every day excited about how you earn your living. This perfect harmonizing of your talents, skills, personality and work style creates a passion and a desire as well as a feeling of contentment that is worth more than gold. It can be yours, if you will read this travel guide of London You can start your journey with the Royal. The challenge of this journey is that the creative business is very different from other businesses. To get ahead, you sometimes have to zigzag to the top. Let the stories of creative heroes and heroines of London show you when to zig and when to zag to make the most of the opportunities out there. Finding contentment in your career is a lot like looking for treasure. A golden egg. Using a map of London you embark on a journey, an adventure in search of yourself. The thing is, there isn’t a golden (or orange) egg waiting for you when you get to the spot marked ‘X’ on the map. The buried treasure is within you. The pursuit of the gold (or the goal) is the reward. Because, when it comes to a career, there is no ‘there’ there. It is all a quest. Enjoying the quest is what success is all about.
  • 5. David Bowie, Mick Jagger and Lou Reed on their quest in Café Royal This is the age of opportunity for the creative person. Innovation and ideas are gold. Ridicule and red tape are being replaced with respect and rewards for the clever and creative person. The business environment is changing, and changing for the better – for you. Are you ready for these exciting times ahead? This travel guide of London will put you in a position to prosper. What parents, tea- chers and bosses might see as problems (sloppiness, habitual tardiness, short atten- tion span, nonconformism) can actually be hidden assets in the search for work in a rewarding and interesting creative career. Intuition, emotion, divergent thinking, daydreaming, thriving on chaos, big – pic- ture thinking, cleverness, open – mindedness and an ability to play and have fun are virtues in the right setting. Elisabeth Taylor frequented the Royal in her thriving days – shooting ‘Cleopatra’ and loving Richard Burton Even so, it’s not exactly easy to build a career in the creative business world. You have to be able to deal with rejection. It is a part of everyday life for the creative person. There is also that funny feeling that you don’t quite fit in – and you don’t. An unconventional person with unconventional ideas you are often seen as imma- ture, temperamental, moody, difficult, distracted, irresponsible, and irrational. The truth is, you can be your wonderful self and still get ahead in the business world. This travel guide of London will help you manage your career using a whole – brain approach that takes advantage of the way you are, without forgetting the way the world works. The Hero’s Journey It’s time to move on, move up, and move out with a new mission. The Hero’s Jour- ney is about taking charge of your destiny so that no idiot can controle your fate. Most books are very thorough when it comes to identifying and informing you about the problems and pitfalls of a creative career. What they lack, however, is the what the hell am i supposed to do about it? part. I decided to make the Hero’s Journey travel guides about real life heroes land heroines of past and present who visited the Royal like Oscar Wilde, HC Wells and Conan Doyle with heavy on concrete tips, anecdotes and lessons to be learned from them. You already know the problems and pitfalls of a creative enterprise and career. You deal with them every day. So let’s start our journey and tackle them. I’ll try to ease up on the theoretical stuff and instead offer many stories of creative heroes and heroines with their practical real life strategies, applicable tips and techniques.
  • 6. New creative careers and enterprises are popping up all the time. There has never been a better time to strike out on your own. This is your time to shine as a crea- tive person. The future looks bright. Many of the current trends favor your preferred mode of operation – self – realiance, zigzagging to the top, rapid change, multi- tasking, chaos, adaptability, intuition, training and retraining. This travel guide will show you how to find your career niche, and then how to earn a living doing what you love. You will learn how to overcome the challenges the creative right brainer faces, and how to make your nature and your creativity work for you. You’ll learn how to market yourself even in a crowded marketplace, sur- vive and thrive in the battlefield that is entrepreneurship. How to be your own boss and work for others, take the ‘free” out of “freelance”, rise to the top without step- ping on too many toes, and use your natural abilities to find a perfect pitch and harmony in your work world. The Hero’s Journey is in reality about your life. There is a direct, undeniable cor- relation between your career and your life. It’s less about what you do for a living than what you can live with doing. Finding fun and fulfillment at work spills over into the rest of your life. Without it, your health will suffer, your creativity will suffer, your performance will suffer – and so will everybody around you. You don’t need to live that way. If you are thinking of giving up on a creative career and getting a “real” job, stop right there. When you settle for less than what’s best for you, you instantly get less than you settled for. Don’t sell yourself short. The regret will eat you up inside. Don’t miss your chance; it may be right around the corner. Instead, get going and go for it – be bold. Use the strategies of heroes and heroines in London to give you an advantage. Don’t let others push boulders in your path and fill your head with facts like “most businesses fail in the first year,” “It’s too competitive out there,” “there are no (dancing) jobs” “you don’t have enough experience or talent, “ “ you have no agent,”. It’s bad enough that these insecure and misinformed people are telling you why you can’t succeed. It’s worse if you believe them. Don’t let anyone talk your dreams down. One of places full of the hero’s journey stories in London is the Royal. A place larger than life. This travel guide through London is for creative people in all walks of life – carpen- ter or composer, dancer or painter, poet or musician, philosopher or travel guide, magician or designer, architect or writer, actor or account manager. It isn’t meant to apply to just the glamour jobs; whatever form your creativity takes, you can ap- ply these stories.
  • 7. For everyone who tells you “you can’t make a living doing that” there are hund- reds and thousands of examples of creative heroes and heroines in all the cities of the world who found a way to turn something they thought was fun and would even do for free into a fulfilling life and career. I will help you as your travel guide to take your powerful creative energy and har- ness it, and you will beat the odds, making a living doing what you love to do. Your life will become a hero’s journey story. Your Story Few people know what they want when they grow up, and even fewer creative people want to grow up. Maybe you won’t discover your true calling until you test- drive several dream jobs and work with some rolemodels. Isn’t it better to testdrive them, using that incredible imagination of yours than waste years on a dead-end- job? One of the key things you’ll work on here is defining what you want to do (not for the rest of your life, but what you want to do now) and eliminating the careers that aren’t a fit. The choices that lead to a life of creative expression and financial security are here for the making. The catch is that creative careers are often unconventional and in some cases completely unchartered. The challenge is that there are a million dif- ferent things you could do. The key to success in any career is clarity. Becoming clear about who you are and what you love is the first part of this travel guide through London. Then how to get what you want is covered in great detail. It’s hard work, but this is your chance to reinvent yourself. Don’t let it pass you by.
