For many career seekers, “follow your passion” can be a terrifying piece of advice, mainly because the word passion conjures up images of intense, frenzied activity better suited to an Antonio Banderas movie than to most people’s real lives.
"Creativity and education expert Sir Ken Robinson delivered two amazingly popular TED Talks prior to 2013. His first talk http://bit.ly/1fjhkH6 —presented sans multimedia in the true Sir Ken Robinson style — was made in 2006 and is the most viewed TED talk of all time. His follow-up talk given in 2010 http://bit.ly/1f6zZp2 also has been downloaded millions of times. I have seen Sir Ken speak many times and he is always inspiring and engaging, but his latest TED talk, http://bit.ly/IEXH0Q presented at TED Talks Education in April of this year, is my favorite yet. Good presentation is a balance of information, persuasion, and inspiration. Presentations related to leadership must necessarily light a spark and point the way. Sir Ken does not scream or jump up and down but he nonetheless ignites, provokes, and inspires his live audience, and anyone else who cares to listen to his presentation on line, in a meaningful and memorable way. Millions of people have seen his latest talk, but just in case you have not, please set aside about 20 minutes to watch this outstanding, albeit short, talk below."

Answer (1 of 61): You don't need qualifications, money, a planet-sized-brain or even a particularly good idea. All an entrepreneur ever does is create something that consistently makes money. Think of a company as a machine you design and build.
Paulo Coelho always chose to see the world through his own eyes. While growing up in Brazil, Paulo discovered his passion for writing. His parents tried to surpress his dreams so that he would follow the path of being a lawyer and appeal to their idea of success. Paulo eventually dropped out of school to travel and find his own way. It wasn’t until decades later that Paulo’s dream came true.
