Do You Live in The Grey?
I was recently contacted through email from a PR rep who basically congratulated me for Living in The Grey. Initially, I thought it sounded like an insult but as I did a little reading on the website, LiveInTheGrey.com, I began to realize I am totally living in the grey and I am so proud of it!
What is Live in The Grey?
Live in the Grey is a philosophical movement beginning from two guys who through their own revelations realized they wanted to stop having a black and white / work and life balance but instead live in the grey. Meshing both work and life in a way that you are following your passion to make a living from living something you love.
Grey is all about blending.
What it Means to Me
This ‘movement’ hit home for me in a deep way.I have only found my true passion within the last couple of years.
I love graphic design. I also love building websites and watching them grow.
Join Vindale Research, the famous survey site where you earn rewards to share your experiences about how you use the internet.
However, both of these passions can be difficult to follow.
For one, I have no formal education in graphic design. The software programs I use have instruction books the size of most Family Marriage Bibles. There are college courses just on Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I had to start very slow and learn as I go- I still have a lot to learn!
Blogging is also a slow process. Work at Home Adventures has been active for almost 3 years now! It took me a full year just to make my first $100!
So, living in the grey wasn’t something I was able to do over night. It took me doing what I love as more of a hobby while I turned to other more ‘stable’ online jobs as a means to make money. Eventually the blending began and my hobbies crossed over to my career and now I fully rely on my blogs and my design work for income.
So, let me ask you again-
