    Thank you Shawn for these wonderful quotes.

    I believe through passion we become creative and more inspiring in whatever we do or hope to achieve. We give much more of ourselves for that which will ultimately be our masterpiece. Passion evolves so much more emotion, it touches the mind, heart and soul.

    Hope you have a wonderful day.

    “Follow your passion, and success will follow you”. -Terri Guillemets

    In college, we studied Computer Programming, for a new career.

    Every class had at least one student who wondered if he was taking the right subject? Maybe he should switch, or even drop out?

    The other students discussed this, sometimes for days. And they always came to the same conclusion:

    “Follow your heart, and the money will follow you.”
