In today’s episode, we talk about the pro’s and cons of turning your passion into your career. We both have quite strong feelings about this topic.
Some of the things we discuss:
How having a creative job can kill your original creative passion (I know this well)
How if you get it right you’ll feel like you’re never working
How it can be hard creating things “to order”
How you can hone your skill and learn new skills while someone else is paying
How you can end up creating things you’re really not interested in.
How working for yourself can be great as you get to set your own hours
How a creative job can help push you out of your comfort zone
