How will I make a living?



“That all depends on your definition of living. If your idea of living is a four-bedroom house on three acres of land, with two late model cars, modern furnishings, and all the latest electronic gadgetry to keep you entertained, your living requires a great deal of income.

I have a friend in Montana who fishes every day and lives in a van. He follows the weather to different fishing spots throughout the year, and along the way he takes seasonal jobs working in fly shops, as caretaker of a lodge, or a barista in a coffee shop. When each season ends, he gets in his van and drives away—to the next fishing spot, of course.

His idea of living requires very little. There’s no wrong way to make a living. When people talk about growing up and getting a real job, what do they mean by real job? Usually, they mean more money. But what’s the money for? Just remember this it’s not about the money. It’s about the lifestyle. So yes, you do need to make a living. Just be careful not to get sucked into someone else’s idea of what that looks like. It’s your life and your living. So get creative.

People are constantly bending the rules of what it means to make a living. With your goals in mind, there’s no limit to the ways you can make your life work. And there’s absolutely no reason you should ever have to get a “real job” —unless that’s what you want.”
