There are a lot of amateur photographers who dream of going pro. They want to be their own boss and run their own business. Maybe this is the year.
I just read an interesting article by author James Altucher entitled 10 Reasons You Have To Quit Your Job In 2014. Once you get past the somberness of reality, you realize that there is hope and encouragement in the words. If you were looking for motivation, this may be it.
A word of caution: avoid the comments below the article. Sometimes the best part of an internet article is the comments section. Not so with 10 Reasons.... Too many of the comments are unnecessarily negative and are written by people who completely missed the point of the article.
