Should you follow your passion in life? (Michael Parenteau)

My guest today is my friend Michael Parentau, a dad of a teenage daughter and a rad human being. Michael is many things. He is an artist, a product designer, a developer, and a creative.

In this episode we will talk about raising a child, while paying your bills on a salary of a starving artist. We will take a look at different paths one could take to enable a child to be creative and to be passionate about learning, and we will talk about boredom, and ways to overcome it. Lastly, Michael will share a story of how he and his 10 year old daughter climbed Mt. Saint Helens, and all the wonderful lessons and memories that came from it.

Michael is a very interesting human and definitely a great guy/dad to know. He's been an artist all his life and my view, he is the antidote to anyone telling young kids not to do art. Enjoy!
