What is that one thing that you love to do? That thing that greets you in the morning and you fall asleep thinking about it in the afternoon. Why not pursue making it a career? We all have passions that we have the right to pursue. If you aren’t passionate about it, don’t do it. Stop ignoring it and do it. I am a big fan of reality, tv so I pay attention to way the others live their lives. So many times I see that people get into a career because of others or because they are chasing money and etc, but years down the line they realize that they are unhappy. I didn’t want to be that person! I’ve never been the type of person to wait for someone to hire me, when I have the ability to start a business that I enjoy and hire myself. I don’t want to look at my life when I am forty years old and realize that I hate my career. After surrounding myself with people that I look up to for their professionalism, wherewithal and boldness to run after what it is that they want in life. Then it became perfectly clear that I was going to make graphic design my career. Being the driven person that I am, I knew what I wanted to do since high school and started setting goals from there. I wanted to be a graphic designer and work for huge companies so that I could add them on my resume. All because I wanted to become a freelance designer and focus on projects that I care about.
