Turning Your Passion into Your Job [podcast]

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

– Mark Twain

In this episode of the Born to Design Podcast, I had a chance to sit down and speak with Eric Haddad.  If you do not know Eric yet (there are several SOLIDWORKS blog articles about Eric), let me introduce you:  Eric took his hobby of designing and building R/C aircraft and started his own YouTube page, which now has hundreds of thousands of views.

Eric is someone who can say that he took the plunge into his hobby and made it a success, turning need to touch the sky into a new business.  It has been a fascinating journey (or flight), which he shares in this interview.  I think we are all interested in the “what if” scenario in which we take that one great idea and take off with it (sorry, I cannot stop the airplane puns).
