The Avocationist had a great summer, including 3 weeks in Paris courtesy of a home exchange with a French family. My family and I arranged this trip using HomeExchange.com, a company founded by Ed Kushins. Ed started his service while running a separate business full-time. He had a long-term view towards having a fun job for his retirement. Later this week, I'll post the first of my interviews with Ed. In the interview, you will get insights into Ed's thoughts on:
1. How do you start work you are passionate about if you cannot leave your job?
2. How do you know when it is the right time to start a new company?
3. What's the best way to try out a "potential passion"?
Also, look for upcoming interviews with a software salesman-turned trainer and online entrepreneur, the man whose love of music inspired him to start the first online music channel and a music promoter turned ministry student turned music promoter turned minister/music promoter...
