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.
