Sabrina Iovino is the founder of JustOneWayTicket.com. She’s half German, half Italian and has traveled to more than 50 countries around the globe. She feels weird to write about herself in the third person, so she’ll switch now. Phew…much better! Let’s restart: HOW I CREATED MY DREAM JOB IN LESS THAN A YEAR ( JUST BY DOING WHAT I LOVE ) It’s been a while since I packed a few clothes in a backpack and left my home country to travel the world. People are always asking me how I can travel so much and if I will ever come home. With the exception of a few short visits, I have actually never really returned. One morning I woke up and realized that this wasn’t a vacation anymore. This was my life. This is it. This is what I wanted to do for the rest of my days. I had no idea how I could turn traveling into a job, but I decided to figure it out on the way. Read full article : HOW I CREATED MY DREAM JOB IN LESS THAN A YEAR ( JUST BY DOING WHAT I LOVE )
I love Sabrina’s story! Some people would read her story and call her foolish and wreck-less. I call her brave and courageous! She is going against the norm by pursuing her passion and doing what she loves. I agree with her that [Tweet “freedom is far more important than money”]
Since I left my steady paycheck, money has been inconsistent and sometimes I wasn’t even sure if I was going to have enough money to even eat! Those were the moments where I wondered if I did the right thing.
After years of praying for the freedom to do what I love, God faithfully answered. He answered in a way that I did not expect- but I trusted Him and His guidance. With the freedom God has given me- I had to be very careful not to grumble and complain like the Israelites did when they were delivered out of slavery. They too felt the pain of now having to find a way to feed themselves. When they were slaves, there food was given to them. Now that they had their freedom, they learned they had more responsibilities then they expected.
When you transition to self employment and embrace the full freedom that it brings, remember that there may be some lean times. You may not get all the things you used to have when you were working your day job. Money may be very inconsistent….but the freedom- in my opinion-is totally worth it!
