How to Live the Life of Your Dreams
Presented by Kristy Shen aka FIRECracker
We’ve heard it over and over again on YouTube videos and TED Talks: Follow Your Passion. If you want to be happy, you have to Follow Your Passion. And if you Follow Your Passion you will land your dream job and finally live the life of your dreams.
Yeah, sorry, but that’s a big fat lie. Your dream job doesn’t exist. And Following Your Passion doesn’t work.
Here’s the truth. Dreams aren’t FOUND. They’re BUILT. But most people are too afraid to build their dreams because they worry that these dreams won’t support them financially. So they settle for financial security over living a full-filling life.
I’m living proof that you can have both. You can make money AND build your dreams. And in this Chautauqua talk, I’m going to show you how.
