I would have laughed out loud if you would have told me a couple of years ago that very shortly I would be making money by living out my passion.

A successful career in marketing seemed ideal. Each year that passed added up to just another year of work. I have always envied the famous Confucius quote, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Though it seemed a bit far fetched to me because I wondered what job does one really enjoy? The key is to take the focus off of the negative word job and rephrase it a bit. So here is my remake of the quote:

“Choose a passion, combine it with a skill and you will have
a job that never requires a day of work.”

-Mandy Carter

A study from the Deloitte University Press reported that up to 87.7 percent of America’s workforce is not able to contribute to their full potential because they don’t have passion for their work.

Now before you quit your job to focus on your hobby there are a few things to figure out first. It is very possible to live with a strong sense of fulfillment that also provides a financial reward. But it does not happen by merely engaging in your passion, it requires planning, time and commitment to the success.
