Why passion in business is a mug’s game
You’ve seen it a million times with internet memes- those who work hardest finish first. If you love what you do, you’re seemingly bulletproof from the reality of business.

That can’t all be a lack of passion, can it? Find out why passion is a mug’s game and how you can remain realistic and inspired at the very same time.
