Dream Job

When I was a kid and people used to ask what I wanted to be when I grew up, I didn't give any of the usual answers like "Astronaut", "Firefighter", or "Rock Star".


I'd say I wanted to be the person in charge at Disney.

Two weeks ago, a job appeared on Disney's website: they're looking for an experienced executive to lead the Disney+ business in Canada.


That's literally a dream job for me.


So I started dreaming about all the things I'd do if I were to be given that incredible opportunity.


Then I stopped dreaming... and started typing.


I wrote a report detailing what I'd do if tasked with growing Disney+ in Canada, and why.


Don't worry, I don't expect you to read it: I fully realize most people don't read strategic assessments for fun.


I also know the chances of it reaching the right people at Disney and having them actually read it are very low.


But Walt Disney himself said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”


And this is me pursuing them.


Here's the courageous part: I'd like to ask for your help.


If you appreciate the idea of me chasing my dream, please share the link to the report (or this post) on your favourite social network, perhaps with a few words of encouragement.


With your help, maybe it will reach the right people.


And maybe they'll reach out to me for a chat.


Or... maybe I'm dreaming.


But dreams are where great things usually begin.
