“Follow your passion”

“Follow your bliss”

“It will be great!”

We all hear the same old advice about going down the shiny road of following our passion to create a life we’ve always wanted. But what if passion isn’t always enough? In this weeks podcast we debunk and defluff this idea of following your bliss with Liz Presson, founder of Pursuit and Working Remote.ly.

She shares her story of taking the leap and how going solely on passion didn’t work out as planned. We dive into the exploration of systems, what freedom really is and why people who are living the dream suffer from work guilt. We’ll show you exactly how Liz moved from burrito stealer to successful entrepreneur, focused on delivering her superpowers to the world.

We all have bills to pay, and that certainly doesn’t go away just because we are on the yellow brick road of passion.
