You are here because you are interested in the world and want to create something. What makes a Creative succeed? Methinks it’s more than talent, just like for successful athletes and musicians. Michael Hyatt wrote a brief article about it here:

      1. Hi , it means that it is possible for people to have many different talents and also earn a living from these different talents. Sometimes people get into the idea of the concepthat a person should follow one career path such as maybe being a dancer , doctor or policeman for example. It is also possible for example for an artist to be a blogger and perhaps a mechanic if they choose to do so.


      2. That reminds me of Smackdown WWE wrestler Mustafa Ali! Previously a Chicago policeman while moonlighting as a professional wrestler. Two martial arts instructors I know also have day jobs. In Hawaii we call your term “making ends meet.” Aaaaand some of my favorite Indian actors dance too!

        Thank you.

      3. Its a pleasure , where I come from the general procedure is that people pick one career or job and stick with it until their time to pension off comes along. There are a few people that do extra things , mostly for more income as you say. With things like internet and information available to us more readily , more people are beginning to understand the concept of following a passion and as you know this is different to solely working to pay for the cost of living. Where passion flows energy goes. When people work only to pay bills without passion they find themselves becoming drained of energy. I know it is not always easy in reality but it is a good possibility for people who work at it. I hope to leave people with some information that can improve their life and I am open to suggestions too.
