This Is What Passion Looks Like

Merging Business with Passion. Career Considerations for the Maturing Millennial.

We all know that mixing business with pleasure is said to be a big career NO. But what about mixing your professional aspirations with your passion? Does such a career opportunity even exist?

According to data from a recent study, the vast majority of millennials say they are satisfied with their jobs, but 45 percent say they are not satisfied with their career paths. More than 3/4 of employed millennials are open to new career opportunities. The millennial employee is arguably the most nimble and resilient to date. 66 percent of millennials say they strive to start their own business, and upcoming Gen Z is projected to be even more entrepreneurial than that.

So what’s the hold-up?

Well, an entrepreneurial spirit is synonymous with risk and risk creates caution. Therefore cautious minds become the barrier. Inherently it is easier to take risks when one is nudged by a personal motivator. When using this simple concept in professional endeavors, the potential to uncover that perfect balance of work/life satisfaction can be within reach. The idea of a “dream job” does sound cliche, but with enough consideration, dedication, and searching it can certainly transpire, trust us!

Turning a passion into a business is possible. This requires one to think beyond the traditional ideas of a profession and a paycheck. The challenging part of merging passion with the profession is also the most simple – Identifying that passion. That one is on you! Although… if you happen to have a love for animals, especially dogs, we know a proven path to consider. 

Passion comes in many forms and faces. It is unique to the beholder and it is a powerful yet lesser considered business tool. We all know that skills, behaviors, and experience weigh heavily in professional development but culturally, why don’t we place that same focus on emotion in business? At Splash and Dash, we do! Emotion and purpose hold a strong place as core pillars of our business. Passion populates profits and we’ve proven that true. We are a driven team and a diverse family looking for like-minded passionate professionals. A team full of fur-covered cardigans and puppy kissed windows.

If you’re seeking a lifestyle change, career growth, professional guidance, or a future to be proud of and excited by, think about a pet service franchise. Franchising in the pet industry is a passion-driven system with uncharted growth potential. The industry at large is slated to reach USD 202.6 billion by 2025, with pet-grooming alone accounting for USD 14.5 billion. We know those are numbers to BARK about and hope you do too! This can be that opportunity to merge your career path with your chosen life purpose. To be in business for yourself but not by yourself, and most of all to do something each day that you genuinely care about!
