About The Series: "Living the dream" is a common phrase we all wish we could apply to our lives. All of us strive to achieve our dreams, but until we get there we continue to wonder what it is like to do what we love and succeed at it. Hearing stories from such individuals is often enough motivation to keep on the path to our dreams. The Series is an endeavour where one will bear witness to the stories and experiences of individuals who had the good fortune of excelling at their passions. Having lived their dreams, the stories may just nudge you toward the path to yours.
