Why I should be the next Guru

I’ve been living in the same state all my life, working in the service industry for about 10 years. Im now at the point of wondering and dreading what my next step will be. I need a change, I need to go out and explore and see more than just what my city has to offer. I’ve never found a job where my 3 strengths (I love traveling, writing, and making people laugh) could come in handy like they would with this job. I’m willing and ready to do anything that’s thrown at me for such an amazing opportunity whatever that may be, even if you tell me to jump out of a plane at my first destination or get in a bed of snakes, I’ll do it!

I’m a Minnesota native that’s ready to leave the Tundra and explore the world to see what a winter without snow is like! Growing up my mother worked for Northwest Airlines, so by the time I was 18 I had been to about half of the states in the U.S. I hope by the time I live the next half of my life, I’ll have visited the rest.

At work my customers come from every walk of life, from the hottest band of the minute to suburbaners who are in town for the football game. I truly do love it because of the people that I meet on a daily basis. The scene changes by the minute and I have to think of my feet, while going with the flow. Qualities that I think are important for the Guru to posses. In my free time, I like writing in many different forms. I have notebooks with pages of both fictional and nonfictional stories, random journaling, and writing for my standup. On occasion I like to go to local comedy open mics, and have even competed in a couple competitions.

I would be a perfect Guru! I’m ready to explore this world, trying any new experience that crosses my path. This is both a job, and a way to grow while becoming a new me. I would be ecstatic to not just put that to paper and film, but do it in a way that inspires you to go out, try something new, and discover the world.
