"Find something that you are passionate about, and use the power of positivity to make the world a better place." - Jake Howard
Blending Passion with Work
Jake has helped launch a number of projects as a writer. He grew up surfing and backpacking, and so desired to work on something that blended with them.
Writing came naturally to him. He graduated with a degree in English and enjoyed writing stories and poems. Little did he know that he would actually be able to pursue his passion.
From Teaching to Writing
When he graduated from college, he decided to teach. Jake shares that he did not even know that writing was a job. He just enjoyed doing it.
Eventually, he met Sean Collins of Surfline.com. That introduced him to writing surf reports. And slowly one good thing leads to another.
Happiness in Chasing One’s Passion
Jake enjoyed the lifestyle and happiness he had from writing. It gave him the privilege to meet interesting individuals as well as travel to different places.
He started with an annual pay of just $24,000. That wasn't practically enough where he lived. Nonetheless, he loved his job and loved the benefits it gave him.
