ABSTRACT
The author offers advice on turning one's passion into a profession. According to her, the secret to finding success at something one is passionate about lies in the ability of that person to get others to pay him or her to do what he or she loves. She relates that it took her a few years to realize that becoming a writer and speaker would be her business. She notes that the key to never working another day in life is to do the work whether or not anyone is willing to pay for it to be done and can get paid to do it.
