We’ve all heard some variation of the age old quote “do what you love, love what you do,” usually spoken in the context of searching for a job or choosing a career path, but shouldn’t this apply even more so to service work?

However, when service work is tied to something you’re passionate about, it opens a whole new set of possibilities.
