That's what I think good marketing does actually. And I really like how he actually just has a passion for what he's doing, even though it might seem like the randomest thing to us. Someone might think, is someone's dream REALLY to walk dogs?

Why yes, yes it is.

More and more I realise people can be passionate about the randomest things. Like I have this personal passion for data analytics. I'm not quite sure why or how this came about. But I just really like being able to see links between data and also to be able to showcase patterns using graphs, pie charts (my personal fav haha), tables. For me, it's just nice that you can find out and organise information in such a clear way. I've actually started categorising how I spend my time, just out of curiosity, so stay tuned for a beautiful pie chart coming your way soon haha. :)
