Millennials Know How To Make Great Money With Their Passion
Many within this generation want to fulfill an entrepreneurial goal: making a living doing what they love

So why do millennials have an even greater advantage than Michelangelo, one of the greatest artists in history? “It’s never been easier to be creative,” observes Goins. “We are consuming more content than ever before. Which means we have the opportunity to be inspired more than ever before.”

According to Goins, inspiration leads to the second step of the creative process: a way to create. It doesn’t matter if someone needs a typewriter, paintbrush, or computer. “Tech is making the mechanisms of creativity easier than ever, before” he says.

Inspiration and creation lead to the last step of turning a passion into profit: a method of distribution. Previous generations of writers hoped to be published in a magazine or newspaper, which painters longed to be displayed in a gallery. Today’s world allows an aspiring writer to quickly and cheaply publish a blog, while a hopefully artist can display work on Facebook or Instagram.

Millennials, because of their familiarity with the digital world, are uniquely suited to make their creative work profitable. Launching a website or growing an Instagram account is not a foreign concept to most within this generation, and these are the tools the modern artist can use to earn a good living from their work.

One example Goins gave me is Stephanie Halligan of and As a kid she wanted to be a cartoonist. Everyone told her it wasn't possible to make a living in that field. After struggling to work in the non-profit space, she started a finance blog that became wildly popular. She soon started a cartoon blog, and now works full-time selling prints and selling customized illustrations.

Halligan's story is increasingly common among millennials. Whether it's a thriving Etsy shop or a profitable web-based business, millennials have a unique understanding of what it takes to create and distribute their creative work while making good money.

Overall Goins is optimistic about how this generation can thrive doing what they love. Yet he still offers a word of warning to help others thrive in the long run. “The hardest thing for millennials to do is embrace the fact that you’re in a season of apprenticeship,” says Goins. “Your 20s and 30s are an apprenticeship, a series of disjointed experiences that teach us lessons. There’s nothing wrong with being futurist, but you need to experience life as an apprentice.”

Planning your future
The point is, in the big picture, no one is going to look after your career for you, but you.

A few years ago, a manager of mine gave me the assignment to work on a five-year career plan. I had never created a career plan before (not even to plot out goals for the coming year), so I was completely unprepared for how and why I should do this. Luckily, she shared her own plan as a guide, but I still agonized through the exercise. Over time I have become aware of how important this was for me to do. Looking and assessing where I was at the time, really thinking about what I wanted to be doing in the future, gave me the tools to make the right decisions to make things happen.
