Last year, I left my decent paying job in corporate finance as a result of some health scares. After years of “killing” myself for someone else’s dream and after seeing my dad leaving the world without fulfilling his, I decided to pursue my own dream and passion. It is not easy. It may be easier to keep doing my job and have a comfortable life. But being comfortable is dangerous when you want to learn and grow.
I jumped with two feet into pursuing my dream. I have to admit that the journey has been scary and challenging. When I face challenges and fear, I remind myself that challenges are exactly what I’m looking for. Learning and being challenged everyday can be so fulfilling. With a good “eye” for art, a solid business background and a strong will, there will be a way.
On February 1, 2015 midnight, I will soft launch a curated online art gallery, Love It Art www.loveitart.com. I’d love to hear your comments. Also, what are your dreams and what will you do about them?
