    Sasquatch research... no I'm not kidding. I've spent many days/nights out in the woods and "much" has occurred which have been eye-openers. The reality is passion can sometimes become more of an obsession however. You have to balance things out in life so I don't spend the time doing things like I did a few years ago. I'm in a number of private Facebook groups and you would be amazed how many people from all walks of life are immersed in the Sasquatch (AKA Bigfoot) subject.

  • I love helping people. I once considered doing social work full-time. But I did't pursue it because I felt kind of an outcast. I see social work as a structure and how business and marketing concepts apply to it. It's not sexy. It doesn't tug the heart strings. And it made me sound like a greedy capitalist. The irony though is that my old colleagues in my volunteer and social work do consult with me every once in a while for marketing and organization. But they won't ask me to join in officially because they think I'm too much of a capitalist to care for the disenfranchised.

      Two edged sword, either do what Billy Joel did, and produce popular music, make a ton of cash and then do what he loves which is classical composition.

      Or do classical first and live in poverty hoping for a break?


      I ditched ceramics, about 10 years ago, and went online instead, since it was 2008 and pretty obvious from the reduction in other talented ceramic artists sales that a storm was coming, and it was good to shelve that.

      Now or 2018, and having recently visited Melbourne, l see a very popular gallery, selling very expensive works, for a good 10 years, (probably more without checking)....gone.

      Mainly because of stagnating wages, and probably other issues.

      I have also gone with my Mother to the International Flower show, each year, except last, and have seen long term artists, disappearing or struggling.

      No, if l had stayed with what l love doing, l wouldn't be doing it now, or even with recognition from exhibitions, would be struggling.


      I may not be passionate about the stockmarket, (what l am doing now) but it has the potential to grow, and isn't subject to Australia being in a rut.

        well the gallery probably shut down because ..well why do artist need to use the gallery system and share most of the money with the galleries .. when there are several avenues online to sell art for artist with skills to sell their art directly to the people who buy .. with things like etsy /ebay or amazon

        good thing you are not an author you would think there would be no point writing books with ll the big and small bookstores closing .. when authors can get their book edited and self published.. and learn to market through amazon and other sites .

        why go to stores or galleries or these places with limited selection and possibly inflated prices.. when as a customer .. you can look through 10,000 different items on your hone sitting on the bus to go to work


        as for turning passions into businesses i know what keeps me passionate about doing something for 8 or more hours a day .. or at least for stretches of time each day.. so i spent time looking for a business /model that fit

        hard to explain ..why i have focused on growing certain things and where .. lots of boring detail .. there is a difference between past time and passion .. and if i tried to turn my real passion into a past time .. no one would watch the video with me in then doin that ..

      Turning something you love into your business model is fraught with danger. In the end, especially if you fail, you stand a good chance of damaging your feelings about something you once loved. If you are successful, what was once something you loved, could become something you loathe due to the fact that you can no longer pursue it, only when you want to. Your life and business will revolve around it, 24/7.

      Whatever you do in life and business, you should approach with a lot of passion, but the things in your life that you are passionate about should be reserved for you time AWAY from work. Enjoying them allows you to recharge your batteries, clear your mind and then return to work reinvigorated which can only help you in your goal of achieving financial independence.

      The three largest myths in IM.

      1, "You must follow your passion."

      2. "You must build a list."

      3. "You must never quit."

      forget just i'm ..it is almost at the point that don't do anything unless you are passionate about it ..or motivated.. or it will get you rich ..and if it looks like hard work it should be avoided ..

      when humans are beast of burden who when they are doing hard work or what other consider hard work ..and they get better and better .. the passion then comes in .. and once they start working the motivation comes ..

    No, Odahh, this gallery sold large, high end very expensive art, typically ranging from 2k up to 20, 30k.

    Most was glass based, large and would be hell to post.

    The Gallery closed, since the work was very expensive and in some cases, way overpriced. And to be honest Vic, wages have been near frozen for a good 10 years, while practically everything else goes up.

    When a well know artist throws some paints onto a canvas, signs it and trys to sell it for 15k in a depressed market, then it will be very hard to near impossible.

    Protecting investments or the business, so they can keep their present lifestyles is more important than spending excessive amounts for something that looks nice, and may show a profit.

      oh so you where talking about the high end scam markets where certain atists work get picked to be worth a lot as investment..

      then there is the arts who make art and use the internet to connect with people who buy art because ..investment be damned they like the way it looks ..and don't feel the need to spend small or sometimes large fortunes ..

      the critical change with nearly everything today .. is that produces or makers cut down the number of hands between them and the end user /customer in many cases to zero .. so they can sell their work for a lot less than in the old system and make more money per piece..and make more pieces because they are not having to produce based on the shelf space in other people stores ..

      the people with the financial ability to spend 10 k or 100, or 1 million for an art piece as some kind of investment ..also pay attention to the world market verse local

      I am currently passionate about never seeing a Marvels film ever again!

      Just finished watching blah, blah Infinity War, and the first half bored me to tears but the second half was an improvement.

      But it did have a happy ending so there was that.

      About the only way l got through til the end was fast forwarding the mind numbing, fight scenes, and the mind numbing, "kill me if the evil guy with the glowing charm bracelet, gets me in a half nelson" chatter.

      I will give it two rotten tomatoes, only because Tony Stark, almost had a leading role and l had access to a fast forward button.

      PS Posts #96-97 are giving away some of this movies, highlights, so don't read those if you are silly enough to want to rent it?

            Don't worry that thing has been out for a few years, so if anyone has taken this long to build up enough mental strength to handle this 2.30 hour onslaught, it doesn't matter all that much.

            True the mass slaying was memorable, but if they have to do this, so they can win, then fair enough, I will just ignore the next one, when he gets sick of the sunset sittings and feels like crap, and slips up.

            But they left Tony Stark alone, and got rid of that kid sidekick, so there is a glimmer of hope that the writers are not all on hard drugs, and have a house full of superhero dolls?

    Gym. I definitely go for health reasons. It's really good for me as it helps relieve anxiety and stops me from worrying excessively. Also exercise makes me feel good about myself. Nootropics https://nootropicboost.com and sports supplements help me in my life and my training

              You do know that story behind this is apocryphal, right? That the scene was inserted into the screenplay by Dalton Trumbo to dramatize the solidarity of those accused of being Communist sympathizers during the McCarthy Era, who refused to implicate others, and were then blacklisted, themselves.

              Both Mr. Trumbo and Howard Fast, the author of the novel on which the movie is based, were both blacklisted at the time.

              OK. I confess I am not Spartacus.

  • Profile picture of the author ebayreseller
    I have an enormous amount of passion for thrifting.

    I like it because of the thrill of the hunt, and the history behind items. One of my sayings I liked for my eBay store was, "Rediscover | Restore | Resell". It basically explains me and what I dig about it. I feel like I am finding items for people, and not just selling them secondhand stuff. Almost like a personal shopper, but they didn't hire me. Maybe I am trying to church up the fact that I make a living buying things other people donated, and then charging people 10 - 100x more than what I paid for them.

    I buy / resell for a living now, so the passion has unfortunately been pushed away from what was once a great hobby. I am still very passionate about sourcing, but the passion is dying slowly.


    I also have a passion for teaching people, but as I started working for myself I began to become introverted. Odd because I have always been the center of attention, but now I struggle to have healthy adult conversation. I am basically the Stay-At-Home parent that overshares with the cashier at the store :-( I would love to teach people about reselling, but I need to reset my newest habits, so I can get out of my comfort zone. This is actually one of the reasons I joined this forum.


    Good question. Sorry for the long-winded answer. I hope you are having a great day!

      Of course not. Let's be honest - it's impossible to have a meaningful existence if you are going to clutter it up with material possessions that might, perish the thought, contribute to your happiness at some level.

      When you really think about it, it's easy to see how nice things should simply no longer be produced as a first-step to everyone being able to more easily achieve a state of Nirvana.
