One of the biggest tragedies is when people work in jobs they don’t like to just “get by.” Don’t get me wrong, I understand that there are circumstances where people need to do this so they can pay their bills. But the tragedy is when they do it for 30 years. Why not find a career you would love and go after it?
There is a documentary coming out in July that addresses this which is called “I’m Fine, Thanks.” It is produced by Adam Baker from ManVSDebt.com and directed by Grant Peele at Crank Tank Studios. According to the Kickstarter campaign, their goal is to “ignite a movement of people who are tired of settling for mediocrity. We want to eliminate “getting by,” “doing fine,” “could be worse,” and “can’t complain” from the vocabulary of our modern culture.” Watch the trailer below to see what people from around America are saying about this.
For those of you not familiar with Kickstarter, it is a way to raise money for your project through what is called Crowdfunding. You create a campaign and then tell everyone about what you are doing. They go to your page on Kickstarter, and if they like what they see, they can give you money to fund your project. In return, you offer perks to the “Backers” like a copy of the dvd, t-shirts, movie credits, etc. Go to the “I’m Fine, Thanks” campaign to see what perks they are offering and consider being a part of this movement.
What is your do you love to do? What is holding you back from doing it for a living?
