They say when you choose a job you love, you can’t call it ‘work’ anymore: ‘work’ implies something that involves effort and strain, but doing what you love only makes you enjoy.
This is the path that all the entrepreneurs and job-seekers of today take.
Never have we seen such diversified careers being taken up at such high rates.
Enjoyment of ‘work’ or their occupation itself is predicted to cause millennials to work longer than their previous generations.
In today’s world, all kinds of creativity can be turned into profit reaping enterprises. Here are a few career tips and advice from the best in the game:
Whatever you do, just start. Get it going. It may be part-time, it may be on the weekends or on holidays, but do start off with it.
