News and Hearsay — Running a business
So a couple of weeks ago, my kid brother the artist told me that he is quitting his job at Walgreen. He plans to pursue a full-time job as a free lancer. I gotta say I was over joyed to hear that. Here I was preaching about following your passion and not actually having the gut to do it. And my kid brother has taken the first step to realizing his dreams. And you know I'll be there every step of the way to lend whatever support I can.
Hustle and passion. Two unquestionable ingredients for success. Easy enough right? Not really. Is not called hard work for a reason you see. Hard work means, getting down and dirty, crawling in the mines to find your diamonds. Nothing good comes easy. There is a reason for that. If everything deemed as great or enviable came easy, then they are no longer considered great. All great things are so because of the level of difficulty that comes with acquiring them.

So rather than go into a rant about why once again passion is very important, I will rather have you all watch this video. And see how this nine year old genius lets his passion do all the talking for him . 8-)
