Byron Morrison is a corporate dropout, much like the rest of us. He was overweight, stressed, and unhappy with his marketing job. He kept fooling himself into thinking that it was the company he hated, but after a job interview, he quickly realized it was really the career that he hated. He decided to quit everything, and go back to school for nutrition. Today, he’s the Founder of Tailored Lifestyles, where he offers habit, nutrition, and fitness coaching.

I want to quickly share a thought about finding your target market. I don’t think you should pick a career if you’re not passionate about it. So many people pick particular niches because they think it’s marketable, and it might be, but are you passionate about it? Because if you’re not, it’s just going to be an uphill struggle.
