Have you ever asked yourself the question ‘Are you doing what you love?’.

Try it now.

What is your reply?

What is your reaction to that reply?

For many, doing what you love is easier said than done. We immediately come up with reasons why we aren’t doing it – too little time or money, too many obligations or commitments and so on. We daydream about following our passions, and maybe even making a business out of it, but we tag on that dangerous little phrase ‘one day’.

Why not today? This is your life we are talking about.

What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Or if money was no object? Can you translate a version of that into your everyday life?

It takes time, concentration and voices of support to move us to a place where we believe we really can do what we love. And now there is an opportunity to have all those things, and carve out a path to the life you want to lead.

It is called the Do What You Love Art & Creative Enterprise Retreat, and it will take place deep in the stunning English countryside in May 2011.

Our Guest blogger Beth Nicholls, founder of Do What You Love, was recently honored to be chosen as one of UK’s 16 most exciting young female entrepreneurs, and awarded a place on Marie Claire magazine’s groundbreaking Inspire & Mentor program. “I have always tried to make choices which have allowed me to do what I love – travel, create, meet new people, learn and explore. As a result, lots of weird and wonderful things have happened in my life so far – some seemingly random and some not so random.”
