(GYSS #92): Quitting Your Job To Pursue Your Passion Project w/ Elaine Huang
“Sometimes you gotta’ just go before you’re ready.”
Elaine Huang is the founder of Neon Owl, a media company that focuses on bringing positive, inspirational content back into music media, while connecting artists and fans to give back to charities around the world. She left her six-figure income position as VP to create a life out of passion and purpose. Elaine is the poster child of creating and living a life filled with nothing less than what you love.
I wanted to get Elaine on the show because she took a longer road toward turning her passion project into a legitimate, lifestyle business. Elaine left a secure, six-figure job in order to build a business she loved. But, it didn’t happen overnight. We talk about why Elaine felt lost during college, how she turned her lifelong passion into a profitable business, and even some of the unexpected challenges Elaine faced while starting from scratch.
