Today I’m speaking with the ever so talented Sarah of Slate and Brush. This story reminds me that it’s essential to make a daily effort to learn and grow every single day, especially if you’re considering trading your career for a passion project. If you’re thinking about making a change in your career path, this episode is for you!
REALIZING YOUR DREAMS
Sarah’s watercolor business became a reality when she finally realized that working in a corporate environment wasn’t fulfilling. She learned many valuable skills while she was an employee and the lessons that she learned easily transferred over to her solo career as a watercolor artist.
I love when I can share stories with you that are typical of a small business owner but counter-intuitive to what we believe a career should look like. Following your passion is not a class or an elective in college, you have to forge your own path and discover the bumps through experience. We are ever-evolving and I strongly urge you to consider what it would look like if you at the minimum took just 30 minutes a day to discover something that you enjoy doing.
SHARE YOUR TALENT
Once you’ve found that passion, could you share it with the world? Even at a small level? I know that sharing that new found talent is going to be the hardest, but I promise…it gets a wee bit easier with experience.
I would love to hear your story. Did you leave a corporate job too?
