The Great Debate: Passion vs. Paycheck

Choosing your passion or a job

I often see people struggling to accept a job that pays the bills because they want to pursue their passion. Artists go through this. The reality is art doesn’t pay the bills. At least not right away. As a writer, I often encounter people who think our life is like Stephen King or J.K. Rowling. They forget both authors struggled financially before they made it big. J.K. Rowling was poor.
