There was an offhand comment in Daniel Pink’s book Drive that I’m a little embarrassed that I had not heard of (so of course, I’m writing about it). Vocation Vacations is apparently not new. Its a vacation company that allows you to test drive a different job before you make a career shift. I love its simplicity and the core need it satisfies: Try a new job before you buy it.
We romanticize the job we don’t have until we do it, Brian Kurth lets you go for it.
