Follow your dream.
Just go for it.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
Live your passion.
These are true, the process however is much different. Anyone that lives their dream will tell you it took much, MUCH, longer than you'd think, and way more compromise and patience than you'd suspect.
The temptation is to believe the Facebook posts, and jump to soon, letting go of what is a solid income (yes, we all need those), rice and beans for something that is just spun sugar.*
and dying from malnutrition is not a cool way to die.
Make peace with compromise, build every day, do your best work every day, eat candyfloss on the weekends and be patient.

I am a flâneur, which basically means I spend a lot of time in coffee shops watching the world go by.
