Yes, I am doing what I love also. I started my own company 3 years ago. It's tough, but it's also fulfilling.

Very well said! It gets time to become independent, but if you work hard on it, chances are that eventually you will succeed.

Before I am applying as a web developer / programmer but since I love writing on my blogs I actually have 6 blogs and I manage to update each of them and because of my blogs someone hired me as an SEO because of my skills also in building links. I now love what I am doing.

Wow! That's a very inspiring story Dale. I too, totally love what I do, since I'm my own boss and I have a good command of my time so its a win-win situation. But of course I wasn't always like this and I also started from humble beginnings. Now I'm running my own internet business but it's always fun to look behind my shoulder and see how far I've gone. Don't you feel the same way too?

well, there are things that even though we don't love doing them, we have to do them regardless. there are things in my life that i love doing, there are those that i do just because i have no other choice. but it's always important to learn to love the things that you NEED to do, in order for you to be more productive.

Dale, I like your story. It is perfect. I have a similar story of starting out with govm aid. I couldnt stand how I felt people looked at me when I bought food with stamps. Worked my rump off to get were I am. I think it is sad that we have gov't that encourages complacency. We'll give you more benefits to be unemployed and so forth. Help you get a house and the list goes on.

It is refreshing to hear of someone else who didn't settle for just living.

Good for you!!

Oh and to answer the original question. I love what I do. I make a difference.
