$100,000 and a year of paid travel around the world?
Best job ever?
Yes, I’d say so. (details here)
As you would expect, there are a huge number of video submissions for a chance at the job. I’ve watched a wide range of them (but certainly not all) over the past week or so. And I keep thinking back to the post I wrote about “How to make money while traveling.”
Why? Because the vast vast majority of these people seem to just have dollar signs in their eyes. Everything is me, me, me. Oh, did I mention why this job would be so great for me? I’m qualified to travel because X, Y, and Z.
I mean, who WOULDN’T want to travel the world and earn $100,000? Everyone on the planet wants that job. But that doesn’t help Jauntaroo build their brand, get other people to book vacations, and actually HELP people have better travel experiences. They need someone with the right motives — and that doesn’t include the big huge dollar signs I see flashing in the eyes of many of those who submitted videos.
The ideal person?
That just happens to be Annie Cheng. Take a look at her submission here. I’m biased on this since I’ve known her for more than 10 years now. That said, I can tell you without a doubt that IF I had 100K right now, I’d absolutely hire her in a heartbeat.
