TMBA 206 – Should You Deprioritize Your Income and Go After Your Passion?

This week on the Tropical MBA Podcast we decided to give Mark Manson a call to dig further into his idea that “passion is practical.” Mark walked away from big income to focus on a project he was passionate about, and it ended up working out better in the end. Was it just a fluke? Did he get lucky? Or is there a broader lesson in all of this?

On the show this week:

  • Why “The Dip” is the exact reason that passion is practical.
  • A perfect example of using some pain to be able to transition to a passion based business.
  • The power of the “ultimate luxury.”
  • What to do if you’re having trouble finding what you’re passionate about (and if your passion doesn’t line up with money).
  • How to know if your entrepreneurial prospects are in danger.
