MAKE YOUR PASSION YOUR PAYCHECK IN 2017. The day and time of hitting the alarm clock and going to a job you hate, is old and played. Start making moves this year in the direction of your purpose and your passion. Wherever your passion is, there too, lies your power. Wherever your power is, is where you will find your paycheck. People will pay you to solve problems. You may say, "Keeta, what is my passion?" Well, I don't know. However, you can find your passion by answering these three simple questions: What makes you sad? What makes you happy? And what makes you mad? When you find the answer to these questions, you are one step closer to discovering your passion.
