A few months ago, I was sitting in a lounge at a private event… Related: The Intriguing Truth About Your Dream Job Where there was a speaker on stage talking about the best example I’ve seen of transforming your passion into a career. As a young boy, this speaker LOVED Karate. He lived it and breathed it. His parents didn’t have a lot of money. So, when his Dad got offered a job that would cut their family time in half in exchange for a significant pay increase - they had a family meeting to vote on what to do. As a family, they decided that they’d rather have more time together and less money, than more money and less time together... And that was a key moment in this boy’s life because his parents had always told him to follow his passion… and seeing his Dad live true to that advice solidified that value deep within him. “I’m going to teach Karate for a living," the young boy thought.
