Meet Your Instructor

Alex Boylan quit working years ago. He walked out of his office cubical (working as a Market Analyst) in Boston with one thought in his mind: how can I never go back?   

 

He jumped on a plane for St. John, US Virgin Islands. For a year he became singularly focused on how to fuel his passion for travel into dream career. At the age of 24, Alex applied for and won The Amazing Race season 2. It was during this epic experience that Alex found his passion for the entertainment business. Although he was hustling to win the race, behind the scenes he became obsessed with the  “job” of the travel producers.  He couldn’t believe there was a job out there that paid someone to travel and tell stories.  He talked so much to the producers that at one point he was threatened to be kick off the Race if he didn’t stop. 

 

After the Amazing race, Alex had made up his mind that this was the career for him.  But he had some problems...he didn’t have a TV or film degree, he didn’t have any connections in the business and he simply didn’t know where to start.

Alex pounded the pavement trying to meet as many people to learn what he needed to do to break into the business. He eventually got his first shot with a small production company in Florida called PineRidge Film and Television. His first job was selling stock footage to news stations only being paid commission on what he sold. It may have been a humble start but Alex loved just being able to come to a production office every day for his job.  He worked extremely hard to make sure everyone noticed him while building relationships with everyone in the studio. 

And eventually he got his next shot!  The studio had just sold a small cooking show “At The Chef’s Table" which needed a host.  And Alex used his goodwill from the hard work and relationships to land an audition.  He landed the hosting gig and continued to work hard eventually becoming a producer on the show he was hosting.

He spent the next five years working day and night to learn as much as he could with PineRidge Film & Television before moving on to new opportunities. From that small opportunity, Alex has gone on to create, host and produced numerous award winning shows for PBS, CBS, Travel Channel, Lonely Planet while creating three digital platforms. For his work on The Steve Harvey Show he received an Emmy Nomination.

 

Today Alex is paying it forward as a Co-Founder of DreamJobbing.com.  The platform has one mission…help people find the path to their dream career while arming them with the knowledge, skills and technology to do it the most efficient way possible.

The average person will spend over 100,000 hours in their lifetime working. That means you will spend more time working than any other single activity. So why not love what you do and have a passion for your job?

In this class, hosted by Alex, you will learn invaluable skills and be given the DreamJobbing Toolkit that will help you on your path to a dream career.
