How to Make Money Doing What You Love!

By June 25, 2013Courses, The Academy

In nearly 4 years of blogging about what it means to truly live, I’ve found that the #1 block to people pursuing their dreams is the belief that they can’t make any money doing it. The biggest question I receive is: How do you live your dreams and be financially responsible? An excellent question!

How did I crew for a skipper in Mexico (see video below I made of swimming with wild sea lions), work on a ranch in Montana, work as a team leader for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, work as a wilderness counselor? Live and work in China for 3 years? Manage strategic international partnerships for a 2-billion dollar company in San Francisco? Work for InStyle magazine? And create a business around what I love most in the world–bringing people’s dreams to life and celebrating those who are living their passions!

I can’t tell you how many people have said to me, “Man, I wish I had your life!” and I respond, “You absolutely can!” Living an incredible life is not just reserved for the Richard Bransons and Oprahs of the world. It’s available to everyone and because so many of you have asked, I want to teach you how and why it’s possible to make money while living your dreams.

Maybe following your dreams means starting your own business. Maybe it means switching careers. Maybe you’re mostly doing what you love, but some fine tuning could do a lot of good!

I have 2 major life missions. In my last moments, if I know I’ve accomplished them, I will gladly exit this life and go onto the next adventure:

  1. No regrets!
  2. Know that I’ve done everything in my power to help people live a life they love!

I don’t believe in coincidences. I believe in yuan fen, a Chinese term that means so much more than fate. If you’re here, it’s for a reason…

    Bravo! This is exactly what we would like to model at early age development. Get clear on your gifts/goals and then nurture them so we can be in alignment with our passions. This can start at any age.

    Blessings Abound!

    This video was so cool Jacqueline! Also I have Isla Bastimente on my list to visit because of you! I’ll be in Ecuador in August scouting places for a retreat. And of course writing about it. Best wishes with your program. It sounds like a winner and so useful!

      Thanks for all the encouragement and support, Alicia! So glad that you liked the video and the post! 🙂 And can’t wait to hear about your trip to Isla Bastimentos. Love it there! Let me know if you need anymore recommendations when you go–wasn’t able to fit everything in during the Panama travel video. I’m going to be in South America later this summer–will send you an email to see if there’s an opportunity to connect while on the road. 🙂

    Hello Jacqueline,

    My friend posted a link to your blog, and I’m so glad I clicked on it! This is a beautiful take on life, and especially relevant since I’m a recent grad trying to discover which direction to head in. Thank you for writing!
