Get Ready For Some Serious Career Envy

Yeah, we've all had that moment. The one where we want to chuck everything (job included) to make art, bake cakes, or launch a magazine. Well, believe it or not, there are people who've actually done it...successfully. Now, granted these people have outsized talent and extensive experience. For instance, Mike Perry and Curtis Kulig have been painting since they were young, Claudia Wu spent decades in publishing, and Amirah Kassem baked her way through childhood with her mother. Yet, they all have a lot to say about what it is to be creative, what it's like to do something you love full-time, and how to identify the thing you just need to do with your life. Maybe, just maybe, if you listen to the video above and dig deep into our Month of Visionaries series, you'll find the original hiding inside you, learn what it takes to dedicate your life to a calling, and never be envious of anyone's career again. Fingers crossed, y'all.
