Here at Tales of Work we obviously talk about our work and every aspect of it, we try to give helpful, practical tips for your job or business. For the next two posts I conducted a little case study about work from several different individuals in a wide variety of jobs and businesses. My hope with this little case study is for you to see some of the different things others are doing for work and to inspire you to find or create a job or business that matches the things that are important to your life.
If you have a story to tell or would like to be a part of future case studies, email me at: Kimanzi@talesofwork.com I would love to hear your story and/or feature it here on the blog. Please visit the blog’s or website’s or social media pages of everyone that so graciously took part in this case study, they have some awesome and inspiring material that will help you! So without further a due:

- Is this your “dream” work? It’s an excellent way to provide an income and still remain fairly flexible and self-directed. That gives me time to focus on other pursuits, such as the ministry that is my true dream job. I certainly enjoy my work now and wouldn’t mind doing it for many years to come as “tentmaking” for my ministry. (more…)
