We’ve all heard the phrase “…the road less traveled.” We often look back on situations and marvel at how unexpected the path to our goal became. We thought right and went left, we thought up and went down.

I came across a great article today about a Ph.D. student who’s path to her passion was nothing short of atypical. Amy Kearns has served as bodyguard (yes bodyguard) to two of the most celebrated racehorses of the modern era while completing her dissertation on Criminal Justice (yes Criminal Justice). Amy’s unique story is a sterling example of how our passions have a strange way of finding their ways into our lives, if your willing to let them find you.

Keep striving. Do what you love.

All the best,
