I was telling stories to high school students today. One asked if this was my real job, how I do it. I told him that I worked in a day job for many years and told stories at the same time, then I decided it was time to quit and see if I could pursue my dream full time.
He replied, "Wait, this is it? You don't have another job? And you're making it work?"
"Yup. It's hard and scary and one of the best decisions I've made."
"Man. That's the bravest thing I've heard all day. Someday I'm gonna do something like that."
Yes! One down, about 5 billion to go.
