What is your day job? What is your passion project?

by #planlikeaboss » Tue Aug 29, 2017 3:05 pm

For the last 4 years my day job has been the head of the art department at a company that produces scenery for theatrical productions. Its pretty fantastic, I get to paint large scale scenery for Broadway and Off Broadway productions on a regular basis and I love it. I have several passion projects, since I cant seem to sit idly. Life is too short to not make the most of every single day right? So one of my projects is a small company I started early this year called LaborOfRageART. It's just me creating and selling abstract paintings. I've done pretty ok so far, I'm still working on promoting and advertising. My newest passion project grew out of the creation of my small business. I couldn't find a planner that would allow me space to keep track of all of the social media postings and blog development and also track all of the expenses/income that goes along with running a business. So I made one for myself. And its actually pretty cool, it worked really well for me and so I started a Kickstarter campaign to try and get funding to mass produce these planner/workbooks and get them out there to all the artists who might also be struggling to stay organized. As an artist/crafts person I want to be able to actually created these planners myself and I feel like other artists can appreciate things that are handmade. Im super excited to check out what everyone else is doing, you guys are so inspiring!

I'm currently a humanitarian worker. My passion is to help those less fortunate and my ultimate career goal is to work in project management with development NGOs. I grew up in Africa so my dream is to see this beautiful continent developed. It sounds impossible but I have faith.

My crowdfunding campaign is to help me conclude my masters in Development Management in London so that I can return to Mozambique and help manage the NGO I co-founded. I already completed a year of the course that was done online and it was much more affordable. But to graduate I need to spend a semester and Summer in London to write my thesis. I am finding it really hard to get people to donate to such a personal cause because not everyone knows my story but this is my only option to fund my studies. Any tips and suggestions are very welcome.

I'm one of those fortunate people who gets to do what I'm passionate about for my day job. Growing up I always wanted to work with video, and now I work with visual effects and edit video projects every day. Most of my work is for larger companies like Kellogg's and Walgreens, but sometimes I do stuff for smaller business as well.

I"m also passionate about game design, which is why I've turned to Kickstarter to help take my creations (well, for now I'll say creation) and make it something I can share with the world. That's the beautiful thing about platforms like Kickstarter. It allows one to pursue dreams that would have never been possible before. :-)

I am a software engineer recently graduated. My day job is to search job for me, I don't know whats wrong with my CV because It doesn't impress any of the companies. I am the most depressed man in this world.
My life is getting bored. I knows how My mother fed me to make an engineer. Being a jobless man I think all the ravishing beauty of my mother eyes is gone she is also kinda hurt and worry about me. Thats all the things that I do daily.
Charles is a software engineer. Currently looking for job but working for private company as well, Which is not his field, he needs something to remain alive something like money, So being an expert in gaming he is working as a gaming headset tester.

CharlesJohny8, praying that you can find some solid work soon! I'm sure it can be very stressful not having steady work and constantly being rejected. But don't give up! Some of the greatest, most famous people in the world were rejected hundreds of times before they were successful. The key is to not give up!

I work full time as a Medical Assistant but hope to get my business to success. I am currently in the process of getting my website out to the public, but in the mean time I work full time at a hospital. I like the work that I do but I want to be my own boss. I hope that I can earn more independence with my business.
