Who is on Your Dream Team?
Who is on Your Dream Team? Image

Take the time to name those people who helped you get to where you are today. To help, we’ll give you a few quick prompts – about the familyfriendsinfluencesplaceswork colleagues and other sources of inspiration that made your life possible.

At the end, you’ll get a wonderful visualization of all the people who contributed to who you are today AND the opportunity to share it with them as a way of saying thanks.

This will take around ten minutes but don’t worry if you forget someone or need more time, you can always save where you are and update it later. Also, this is your dream team, not ours, so this data won’t be shared by anyone for any reason, period.

Get started here.

If you’d prefer to do this with pencil and paper, just download the prompts and blank form here.
