I Have a Dream...To Make a Living Being a Geek

I have a dream...to do what I think about daily and that's being a geek.

Popular Cosplayers are paid to travel the globe and earn an income selling merchandise based on the characters they portray.

Jordan Hembrough collects and sells vintage toys and even has a reality show.

Steve Sansweet is one of the biggest Star Wars fans in world and ends being head of Fan Relations for Lucasfilm and having the biggest Star Wars collection in the galaxy.

These people live a life that I not only dream of, but that I want. Geek part is down pat. Need to use my skills and serve a purpose. It's in the works.

What's your dream? What's stopping you? Or is nothing stopping you and you're living the dream?

  1. There's always that dream that someone would stumble across my blog and say, "Hey, we need that guy to write for us!". It still hasn't happened yet. I think part of my problem is my relative isolation from, well, anywhere. It's an hour north or south to visit anywhere, it's kinda hard to go see new movies, or even make it to smaller conventions.

    Still, it's been a fun hobby so far, so there's that.

  2. Yes, the hobby aspect keeps this Batman from turning into the Joker, but the hobby is becoming an obsession and I am a firm believer that people should turn their passions into a living. Just need to open the right door to make that happen.

  3. Nice dream - I'd love to make a living on the Geek front too. But how? HOOOOW?!?!?!

    1. Nerdist, Geek & Sundry, Anovos, Her Universe, Hollywood Heroes, Collider, Toyriffic all started somewhere. Need to pick avenue and just do it. They all did, but sometimes one man can't do it alone. Sometimes it takes a village.
