There are few moments in life where all the stars align and shine on you,but last week it happened for me. I should have checked my horoscope for the day, but the gods all shined down on me as I pulled up to the Liberty Hotel to meet with David from the Craig’s list ad.

I know what you are thinking…I should know better than to meet at a hotel with a stranger I found on Craig’s list. Yet David, as explained in the advertisement, was launching a new business based around CHOCOLATE.

My sweet tooth screamed with excitement when I found the advertisement and in the interview with Taste of Chocolate, my blood rushed with a sugar-high without even tasting a piece of anything.

David was looking for a tour-guide for his new Boston-based chocolate tours. As he explained the job, I would be paid to walk from shop to bakery with a following of other chocoholics and taste each vendor’s specialty. This is my dream job!

David and I bonded over our love for cacao and before I knew it I became the new guide for a Taste of Chocolate. I start training this Saturday with a chocolate workshop and a walk through the very path I will be leading others through Boston’s chocolate paradise.

In addition to walking through Boston on my chocolate pilgrimage, I will be writing the company’s blog… I will keep you all posted.


  1. OH MY GOSH! Your stars really did align! There is nothing more perfect for you in all of the world! The next time we're in Boston, we will definitely be taking that tour!

  2. Wow! Talk about a dream job, this is like something from a storybook. I can't wait to read more about your new gig! Very interesting development indeed.
