From Guy Kawasaki’s blog, an interview with Donald Trump
Question: TV is TV, real life is real life: What’s the most important real-life advice you can give to an entrepreneur?
Answer: You have to love what you do. Without passion, great success is hard to come by. An entrepreneur will have tough times if he or she isn’t passionate about what they’re doing. People who love what they’re doing don’t give up. It’s never even a consideration. It’s a pretty simple formula.
I think that’s one reason why I’m leaving my full-time day job as the webmaster for the Center for Democracy & Technology, and going to stay at home and work on some web projects that I am having a blast doing. CDT still is doing great, important work, but I’m not loving slogging through HTMLizing pages, and spending two hours a day commuting.
