Working at a job you love and making a good living at the same time is the ideal employment situation. The reality, however, is often something else, particularly in today’s job market. Many people work at their jobs simply because they got hired, stayed employed and are earning a steady paycheck.
Some fortunate few are already working in their dream jobs. Others – such as nurses, teachers, soldiers and clergy – have answered a calling to do something they believe in.
Then there are those who volunteer in their spare time to support a worthy cause. They work at animal shelters, community centers, retirement homes, homeless shelters or arts organizations. They also volunteer as youth athletic coaches, Scout leaders, language teachers or mentors.
If money wasn’t an issue, what would you do as a labor of love? What job would fulfill you just because you want to do it?
