One of the things I’m most thankful for as I wake each morning is having a job that I love. Not only that, it’s incredibly rewarding to be surrounded by people who also love what they do. Virgin is a company that prides itself on a happy, motivated workforce.
Sadly there are a lot of people who are not fortunate enough to have a job which they are passionate about. This was all too apparent when I recently watched a short film on career fulfillment made by my son Sam’s production company Sundog Pictures. There were a few lines that really struck home, in particular one person explaining how a change of career had made them feel:
