"Find a way to get paid for your passion." - Some guru tells you. 

Really?
Is that all?
That must be what I forgot to do.

I am most passionate about Music, Dancing, Reading and Cooking.

Can I make a living getting paid for that?  

We should all try and pursue our passions but we will have to answer the question.

Is it billable?

Food, rent and insulin can not be paid with hypnotic choreography

So what options do we have for breaking out of the mind-numbing 9-5 work? 

I am passionately hunting for effective ways of doing this but here are what I am trying. 

1) Making time for the different hobbies - about 30 min to an hour a day. Something like this 200 words a day thing. Building a streak of hobbies. Who know where it can go?

2) Using crowdfunding platforms - Kickstarter and Indiegogo are viable options for small and big projects. 

3) Investing time to be an expert at one skill. Work on making it billable. Freelancing is the way of the future... Be so good they can't ignore you. 

So what are your hobbies?  

Is it billable?

    @keni I am realizing more and more every day that I'm in the wrong industry. I think this is a good topic for a future article. In the meantime, when someone asks me what I do for a living, I'd like to be able to answer "I make a living, living." The motto for the business I am working on my own to build is Fun. Freedom. Fulfillment. Yes I think I'll take that.

      @brandonwilson - I would love to be like that too... But the cost of insulin and health Care is rising so fast, the 9-5 is the only option for some of us.

      @keni You are right the cost of healthcare is out of control. And the stories I read about insulin, specifically, are the latest alarm bell that the system is broken. I wish I could say I have faith that the government can do something about it, but I'm not holding my breath.
