Here’s a note from my good friend at Business Week, looking for more story tips.
We are looking to interview people who’ve left their corporate/professional job and made a career out of what was formerly a hobby.
We’d like people who are really earning a living from these second careers, as opposed to people who walked away from corporate jobs with a bundle of money and can have a hobby/career without worrying about money to live. Keep in mind that people who fit the bill should be willing to offer financial details that are appropriate to the story.
If you or someone you know fits this description, please contact me and my editor Jeff Laderman: firstname.lastname@example.org
Kudos again to everyone who sent us ideas and comments for the Cost of Kids Special Report. The response was overwhelming, and I got enough fodder to fill a book.
