Be Pa­tient

“Mak­ing money out of your pas­sion takes years,” admits Shosita. You don’t make it overnight from your pas­sion or hobby. For Shosita, she spent years hon­ing her skills and un­der­stand­ing of yoga be­fore she con­sid­ered teach­ing.”

Have A Plan B

“Even if I couldn’t find a full-time job af­ter com­ing back from In­dia, I could still of­fer pho­tog­ra­phy ser­vices, or pro­vide makeup ser­vices at a theatre,” says Shosita. Plan so you can find in­come and sup­port while you im­prove your skills or explore your hobby.”

Get Real

“If you want to switch ca­reers and be a yoga teacher, you have to un­der­stand that it will not give you an in­come that you used to have in a nine-to-five job,” re­veals Shosita. So don’t ex­pect a cushy life!
