I was reading Oprah Winfrey’s book ‘What I know for sure’ when she had put my feelings into words. So thank you Oprah
There was never a way I could express myself when I talked about my first job. I get tears to my eyes, this was one of those moments where you lived it once so brilliantly I wouldn’t want to change a thing.
“By the time I was 17, I was working in radio, making $100 a week.And that’s when I mademy peace with money.I decided that no matter what job I ever did, I wanted that same feeling Igot when I first started in radio—the feeling of I love this so much, even if you didn’t pay meI’d show up every day, on time and happy to be here.I recognized then what I know now forsure: If you can get paid for doing what you love, every paycheck is a bonus.Give yourselfthe bonus of a lifetime: Pursue your passion.Discover what you love.Then do it!”
That’s precisely how I felt with Indiahikes. I would have still gone even if they hadn’t paid me.
