27 Jan EXECUTIVE ENTERPRISE EXAMINES MAKING A CAUSE INTO A CAREER
For many people, causes such as human rights are just a side project or hobby. However, it is possible to take something that you care about and turn it into a career. For Executive Enterprise this has meant taking on non-profit clients and participating regularly in volunteering and charity events. Some people take this even further and dedicate their lives to a particular cause. If you have a cause that you are passionate about, you may want to consider making a career of supporting that cause.
Of course this path will inevitably be fraught with obstacles and naysayers. Many people will tell you that it isn’t a legitimate career or that you can’t make a real living in the non-profit sector. While it may be a little more difficult, you can definitely make a comfortable living working in charity or social work and will be doing something you love at the same time.
Sometimes it will seem like the issues you care about are too big to ever be addressed. Try to avoid this thinking; however, when it does inevitably come, try identifying one smaller part of the issue to start tackling first. This will enable you to build momentum as you make more and more impact.
If you have the ability, try traveling to spend time in other cultures. This will help to develop your appreciation for other people in the world and will provide valuable perspective. It will also help you to tackle obstacles on your career path by learning from others.
Making a cause you care about into a career can be a rewarding choice. Although it can be a difficult path to take, if you can make it work, you will have a great career doing what you love.
