How to Follow Your Passion and Choose Your Dream Career?
I am writing these words from Jimbaran, Bali. I am a professional author, blogger and digital nomad. Yep, I get paid to write. Not bad, eh?
It wasn’t always this way though. When I was a teenager I wanted to be a:
- pro basketball player.
- stock broker.
and about 14 other dream jobs I wished to fulfill. But here I am.
The road was as windy as the jungle paths here in Bali. I studied meteorology, then I worked a few warehouse jobs, then I worked in sales, and did some database analyst stuff, then, I became a security officer.
The last job wasn’t super glamorous, as I spent more time breathing fumes than counting the dollars in my paycheck but I feel grateful for my time at the docks because I decided why, and what, I wanted to do with my life.
