  • Don’t make a Job out of your Passion

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Business

    I am speaking from experience on this one... MORE >

    Far too often people get the advice of "Find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life". Many interpret that to mean follow your passion and make a career out of it. Well, I did that, and I took something I was more passionate about than anything else in my life and tried to scrounge a living out of it. The result was I ended up burned out and completely done with it. This was the story of my Professional Racquetball career.

    Today, I do happen to really like my day job, but my passions of coaching, public speaking and most of all fly fishing will never lose their luster for me, because I will not make them into my sole source of income. Fool me twice...shame on me, right?

    I share my take on setting yourself up for a happy life, and in particular provide an alternative view from the outdate advice mentioned above.
