If you could follow your passion and do anything you wanted for a living, what would it be?


One of the most popular topics on this site is work stress. I get comments and emails from people all the time who are facing job/career dissatisfaction.

But changing careers and following your passion isn't always easy... and sometimes it can be scary. However, not allowing yourself to dream (and reach for those dreams) can cause a lot of stress in both your professional and your personal life... I know because I've been there!

All of that changed for me when someone recently asked me, "If you could do anything you wanted, what would it be?"

So now I'm asking you the same question. Allow yourself to be creative and don't be afraid to tell us...


If you could choose any career, what would it be?

Throw reason and doubt aside and allow yourself to dream... and tell us what your dream job/career would be and let us know what's holding you back. You just may get the inspiration you need to take your own leap of faith.
