The Outlook For College Graduates
These days being a college graduate does not mean much. What was once promised to you back in the 1990’s is now a dream. Back then you could get a student loan, go to college then graduate and get a job. Once in your new job you started making good money and pay back your student loans in a few years. Yes, going to college meant that you would soon own a home and a new car.
In order to be in business for yourself you have to be passionate about what you do. In the first few years of a new business chances are you are going to be losing money and not making money. If you are losing money how can you continue to put in long hours of work and investment everyday?
The only way you can continue is if you are not in it for the money. I am a stern believer in following your dreams. I like to dream. Its really all we have. Couple those dreams with some actions and you never know what might happen.

He found out that he really enjoyed making knives and started to just do that to pass the time, then one thing led to another and he is now operating his own hand made knife business.
What I got from this guys story is that you have to be true to yourself. Do what makes you happy in life and the rest will come. Chase your passion and not money because if you chase money you can never be happy.
