Decide what you enjoy doing more than anything else in the world – and turn that thing of pleasure into a part-time business. Figure out why people desperately need what your business provides. You can’t succeed if you don’t give value.
When your business is something you really like doing it's more play than work. When you don't like doing what you do it's a JOB! Pleasure brings happiness.
“There is only one success – to be able to spend your life in your own way.” Christopher Morley
But don’t forget to include leisure hours along your way. You can’t devote every waking moment to your career. You gotta have hobbies to relieve the stress that life brings your way.
