I would alter that drastically. "Do you what you love, that isn't easy for many people to love
, and you'll never work a day in your life, without making a living.
I would probably be teaching people to fly or running a dive shack on a beach in the Caribbean, if it was simply doing what you love. Particularly, when the activity is filled with people that aren't really doing it for money, but rather as a hobby. Hobbyist's often accept a recovery of cost, not a return on investment.
Dylan, thanks for the primer on the economics of these matters. I found it fascinating.
there is a rough balance sheet on my blog in case anyone is interested
on a UK forum I was accused by a sailor of being lazy self indulgent journalist
he then told me how hard his clients were to deal with and offered to swap jobs for two weeks with me - but he said that he would need to earn more than $100 a thousand for his words
well he chose his own clients
and I agreed to write 1000 words for a $100 in Small Craft Advisor
we all make our own beds
I love the sailing part of my life
generating words, copy and video for company websites is a bit less interesting
