  • This guy quit his job to become a pro golfer – Dan McLaughlin was a commercial photographer until he decided to quit his job and become a pro golfer. But he had no practice for that. So he set an apparently unreachable goal: to rack up 10,000 hours of practice, traveling the world, and dedicating himself to becoming a pro golfer.
  • This whole family quit their jobs to play pro poker – Michelle and Matthew Shiels were so passionate about poker, that they decided to quit their daily jobs to become professional players, alongside their sons Richard and Brandon.
