I am one of those people that whole heartedly believes that you need to love your job! Maybe it is just my generation, but I believe you should be happy every morning you wake up and you should be excited to go to work. Everyone has had those jobs where you just wish when you walked out to your car you were missing a tire, or something along those lines. It sucks when you dread going to work. It makes you miserable!
When it comes to your career, you should love what you do. You will be much happier in your work, your home and just overall. People will see how much passion you have for it and really support your journey! This is what I am currently trying to do! I have decided that it's now or never to start freelancing in social media marketing. I have been job searching for months and nothing has really come across to me as my dream job. It's a good learning opportunity for me to see what works, what doesn't and what it really takes to be successful. It's a journey and I am excited to be on it right now. Even if things don't go the way I want it, that's okay. I know I am going to learn a ton from it and meet some really amazing people along the way. That's really all I can ask for!
So you want to start your own journey? You wan't to love going to your job everyday? Do it. I support you! You are going to figure it out. It may not be easy and it may not be successful overnight, but if you do the work I promise something amazing will come from it. Just do the work.
