Quote by Kurt Vonnegut. Via.
My parents have always said, “Do what you love, and the money will follow.”
Since graduation, I’ve had to reconcile with the fact that doing what I love may not always lead to money. Not very much of it anyways.
But it does lead to satisfaction.
I’ll admit it — there are times when I get discouraged because I know I’ll never get close to making as much money as my friends in finance (or sales, or pretty much any other career path). But remembering what my parents taught me, and remembering quotes (like the one above) from artists and writers I admire helps.
This is why I do what I do. I couldn’t possibly do anything else.
