A Future in Legos
They held you spellbound for hours when you were a child. Kept you amused while the adults in the household went about their business. Little did you realize that your custom-built Lego cars, skyscrapers, and other modern marvels might hold the key to your to your professional destiny. Indeed, there’s a future in Legos, at least according to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal.
As the article points out, a select group of ‘adults’ currently pull in big bucks for creating sophisticated Lego models. Among them is Dirk Denoyelle, an engineer-turned-Lego-artist. Recently, he earned a hefty $20,000 crafting a model apartment complex out of the interlocking plastic pieces. Not bad for re-arranging a few toys. New Yorker Sean Kenney also has embraced this career alternative in a big way. For him, the Lego lure was so irresistibly powerful that he cast aside a tech job at Lehman Brothers to build the toy models full time.
Lego has put its own pedigree on the world’s elite contingent of Lego masters, dubbing them ‘Lego Certified Professionals’. At last count, the group numbered only 13 members worldwide. And you thought it was tough getting into Phi Beta Kappa.
Who knows? You might have the creative wizardry worthy of a Lego Certified Professional. Have a look at this intriguing article. If by chance you find yourself toying with the idea of pursuing this fascinatingly unique career alternative, be sure to let me know.
