Follow your passion? How about create a product or service that people want, to a viably sized audience – and serve them at your highest level, doing something your trainings/skilled at that you enjoy too?
This was snatched from a thread, but tickled me so I HAD to share – love to hear your thoughts?! Should be a good conversation

I look at it this way, you’re a grown man/woman, you own your shit. If you want to jump out of the plane and put your parachute on during the free fall, that’s on you. If you want to walk to the pub and have a pint not wearing pants, that’s you call.
I think there’s a cottage industry of muppets and dickbags who are telling people to follow their dreams for personal financial gain and I detest that.
Selling results and showing people how to do something is hard work and the people who sell the hope message are the antithesis of hard working. Selling results polarizes people because you know what? Some people suck at life and aren’t good enough. So they fail and nobody ever blames themselves and they end up blaming the person who sold them a result.
On the other hand, hope is amorphous. It is almost in endless supply and nobody ever fails, they just haven’s succeeded yet.
You didn’t ask someone’s permission, you just got on with it.
My gripe is with the hope pedlars.
