“The Best Job In The World”… Judy goes for it!


I have seen some genius marketing in my time. The campaign to find a person to work for Queensland Tourism on a beautiful island with a pay cheque of $150,000 for six months is inspired!!!

This takes the reality factor to a whole new level. Anyone can be part of the game. A colossal number of hopefuls have thrown their figurative hats into the ring (well, onto the web). This is an exciting chance to live the dream, get a wad of cash and a splash of publicity. All web channels are open… The Official Web Site, Facebook, MySpace, You Tube… you name it… the buzz is deafening!!!

Everyone wants “The Best Job In The World“.

As I sit and smile at the guile of the people behind this I see another hopeful leap into the eye of the storm of enthusiasm… my very own love, Ms Judy! I am incredulous with admiration. With so many people chasing this seemingly Utopian opportunity, why would Judy put so much time and effort into chasing the dream?

Judy’s response is positive… she has as much chance as some and more than many. Yes, Judy has training and experience in managing and marketing resorts, including five years at a very high end fishing resort in a remote corner of British Columbia (Nimmo Bay that has appeared on a number of Boston Legal episodes). Judy has writing experience, she is an excellent story teller. She has training and experience in radio and TV interviews.

Judy at the Helm!

I looked at her “application” video for this position. Judy is vibrant, creative and beautiful! Why would you not want to have her promote Queensland’s astonishingly beautiful reef? Why not indeed! I think Judy is a wonderful person and I admire her for many things. I can now add her flair and enthusiasm for this opportunity which I can understand appeals to her adventurous and animated personality.

As her Aussie partner, what do I think? Simple! Bags packed, trusty MacBook tucked under the arm… I am off to finish the three novels I have started while adopting a semi-recumbent posture on the white sands of a coral island!

    Judy, I love it – the underlying matilda theme to your well chosen words is great – very inventive and competitive – maybe you could do the same for Ettalong!
