How To Make A Living While Pursuing Your Passion

  • your passion email

 

Let's face it, pursuing a passion usually pays very little, or nothing at all. As an artist, student, philanthropist, future business owner or aspiring SAHM/D, you may think that the need to make money will slow down or totally stop progress toward your goal. But you're wrong.

 

Current trends in employment are more favorable than ever in our nation's history for creating a work schedule that accommodates your passion. Here are some of the ways that thousands of people like you are achieving their dreams while keeping a roof over their heads and food in their family's mouths.

 

Temporary employment.

In this win-win situation, employers save money on payroll by only hiring people when and as needed, and employees work assignments that leave them time to pursue their passion or meet other responsibilities. If you do a good job on your temporary assignment, it's not uncommon to be asked back for a repeat performance. We've even known temp gigs to lead to full-time job offers.

 

Part-time employment.

If you don't need the income of a full-time job, this may be the right choice for you. You get the flexibility of scheduling shifts according to your needs plus the stability of having one ongoing employer. It's also a great way to gain skills that will help you succeed in the career of your passion, such as bookkeeping for those who want to open their own store.

 

Independent contractor.

There's a huge global movement toward freelancing, as demonstrated by the phenomenal growth of websites like TaskRabbit.com. Whatever your skill, from computer programming to lawn mowing, you can market it directly to the end consumer. This option gives you the highest level of freedom to set your own schedule, pay rate, etc. However, it does leave you without the benefits of traditional employment, such as group health insurance and state/federal tax contributions.

 

The trend toward employment freedom is not going away anytime soon. In fact, it will only get bigger as new generations of workers expect better work/life balance and employers adapt to meet their demands. Many companies now offer more flexibility even in full-time jobs, for example with telecommuting options. There's never been a better time to pursue your passion. Go for it!
