    • Sure thing. One of my favorite authors of all time is Chris Guillebeau. In his book, The $100 Startup, he shows this diagram (below). He stresses the importance of finding convergence between what you love to do and what people actually need.

      If you love to eat pizza so you decide to be a freelance pizza eater, it probably won't work out since there are very few people who are looking to hire a contractor who can regularly eat their pizza.

      But if you love to write and you see there's a need for freelance electrical engineers, you'll hate yourself for only catering to the market.

      As per Chris's advice: find the convergence. It's where you'll thrive.
