Turn your passion into your dream job

Turn your passion into your dream jobWhere's your passion?

Is it in the work that you do on a daily basis? Are you still trying to figure out how to turn that passion into a job? Then you are not alone. There are so many people who go to work and daydream about one day doing what they love to do. They dream about turning that passion into a profitable business for themselves and their families. And then there are those who aren't in it for the money. They just want to do what makes them happy or what would bring some happiness to someone else.

Harness the power of the ancestors

Harness the power of the ancestorsYears ago when my kids were small, I received some excellent advice from my friend and mentor. He told me to cherish the time I had with my children because there would come a day that we would not be able to sit down and have dinner together. As time went on, his counsel quickly came to pass. At that time, I had 4 kids in three different schools, and if you added in the complexity of multiple activities such as band, cheerleading, football, basketball, and track practices, we could hardly find time for a sit-down family dinner. Out of this need came our family's Sunday dinner tradition that has existed in some form or another for the last 25 years. This tradition has now grown to include my 4 children, 10 grandchildren, and extended family and friends.
