About Us

Chip Hiden and Alexis Irvin are the team behind The Dream Share Project film, workshops, and book. Our mission is to encourage and help you discover and pursue your dreams.

What We Do

The Dream Share Project film explores how successful people have pursued their dreams to find careers they love. We made the film in 2010, after quitting our unsatisfying desk jobs and embarking on a coast-to-coast road trip to interview 30 different entrepreneurs, activists, artists, athletes, non profit founders, technologists, and many more. You can stream the film, read more about the film, purchase the DVD, or request a Screening

Our first book, Build Your Dreams: How to Make a Living Doing What You Love, is a detailed guide to help you discover your dream and help you turn your passion into a profession. The book provides everything you need to know to find or create your dream job. Build Your Dreams is in bookstores everywhere starting July 9, 2013 and is published by Running Press.

We have screened The Dream Share Project film, led our Chase Your Dream! workshop at over 200 colleges, universities, and schools across the U.S. We’ve also developed a 63-page curriculum with 5 lesson plans for teachers to use The Dream Share Project film and Build Your Dreams book in class.
