At People Report, we're always looking for what's crazy, unique and real in the workforce that may be able to help our industry figure out how to be more an industry of choice and highlight the great things restaurant people do.

In looking around, one of the favorite things I have seen this year in terms of looking for your passion in life and what job best suits you is Sean's 1 Week Job Project. This guy graduated top of his class in college and wanted to find the most meaningful career for himself and decided to ask people to let him work for them for just a week and chronicled the whole experience.

He is coming out with a new movie on the 1 Week Job in 2009 and is offering people a chance to be a producer (great life 2.0 way of raising capital) by contributing a day's wages.

The video looks like it will be one they should show on college campuses and even to mid-career people everywhere. Check out the trailer and consider becoming a producer of your first movie!

Here's the scoop:
Become a One Week Job Documentary Producer!


Greetings all!

Ian here, Sean's sidekick and filmmaker that documented the One Week Job project.

We've officially kicked off production of the One Week Job documentary, and we need your help!

Would you donate one hour's worth of your wage to support the film and become a producer?

$6 bucks. $15. $30. Every little bit can add up to a lot.

Aside from supporting a worthwhile project and helping inspire others to find their passion, you'll benefit in the following ways:

Your name - featured on our Wall of Producers with an optional link to your website.
Your name - featured in the documentary credits at the end of the film.
Your actual donation amount will be kept private. Only your name and link will be featured on the Producer's Wall.

BONUS: Donations of $50 or more will receive a copy of the DVD when it's released in 2009. Hooray!


Thanks so much for your support!

Sean Aiken & Ian MacKenzie

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
