Have you found your passion but don’t want it to be your money-maker?
Maybe you’re not exactly sure that you want to encompass your career around your passion, or maybe it’s just not possible. Perhaps, you prefer to have a career that you enjoy, which allows you time to pursue your passion.
Are you tired of working for “the man”? Or maybe you’re just fed up with searching for the ideal job that doesn’t seem to exist. Whatever your reason, you’ve stumbled across this post because you’re considering the option of freelancing.
Do you hold back when it comes to investing in yourself and your dreams?
When you stop to think about it, you invest in things everyday. When you purchase a book online, you are investing in your knowledge and the author’s career. By changing the oil in your car, you are investing in your wheels and your ability to get from point A to B. When you purchase a new couch, you are investing in the aesthetics and comfort of your home.
So why is it so difficult to invest in yourself?
Are you longing for a life filled with passion, a meaningful career that works with the lifestyle you want for yourself? What’s holding you back from taking action and making it happen in this new year?
Do you find yourself making thoughtless resolutions at the end of each year, or do your resolutions inspire the kind of life that you want to have for yourself?
A career that you can do with joy, is a career of passion. Whether you aspire to be a writer, musician, accountant, teacher, or even a website designer it is important that you start out understanding that you may not get rich from your passion. And that’s ok.
