This page is filled with different PASSIONS that I can possibly compile. It has successful people that we can treat as role models, I’ve added possible degrees and skills necessary if it’s the path we want to take. I’ve personally contacted these kind individuals who are living their purpose, a true testament that living our passion is definitely achievable.

Organizer like Linda Koopersmith
Degree: Fine Arts Interior Design could help
Key Skills: According to Ms. Koopersmith – The special skill one needs is the ability to see the final result. Walk into a room and automatically visualize the perfect end result. Know how to get it from A to Z. What happens during the process for me is my passion. I lose myself in the project. I guess you could say we become one, and hours later, I enjoy the results. Patience is another virtue, since you will need this along with strong people skills. Remember you are working with people who often have a strong attachment to their “stuff,” and often have “issues.” These issues can be a number of things including mental health, ADD, etc. – click here for related videos.
