I’ve been self-employed for over a decade after leaving my 17-year radio broadcasting career in the rearview mirror. It wasn’t an easy choice. It was kind of forced upon me. BUT, as I say in this podcast… I decided to give up on chasing a guaranteed paycheck (which it’s not) and put that guarantee on me, as I pursued my passions in hopes of turning them into a paycheck.

Believe it or not, that’s exactly what happened. This podcast is going to be a beginner’s guide to taking the first few steps that could turn a part-time passion, into a full-time paycheck.

It’s not going to happen overnight, and it might take more than following just one passion. But with time, effort, and consistency, it can all come together for you, as it did for me. There were a number of ups and downs, but when the dust settled, I fostered a partnership that had me become Co-Owner of Showcase Events (tradeshow convener) got into real estate, run a couple of small businesses, and a full-time podcaster to boot.

I promise you, wherever you are in life and whatever it is that you’re doing, you can change. If you believe it, you truly can achieve it, the universe will always find a way.
