Episode 9

Hobby vs. Success

In the book Devil in Paradise, author Henry Miller said something like "Eventually you will have to decide, what is your career and what is your hobby"

In context Miller was discussing his life with writing asa a professional, but everyone with a passionate hobby will fantasize about how to turn their love into a career path. How do you make a career out of doing something you love?

It is also said that you must pick your career before it picks you.  Jonathan and Matt discuss how frightening it was to do Art full time.  The path is rarely as nosey as our day dreams.
