From Farmer to Fortune, How One Medical Device Revolutionized An Industry

ToyMakerz Founder Goes Full Throttle with Tips for Turning Passion Into Profits

People still need to earn a salary so that they can meet their needs, and some of their wants. The good news is that we don’t have to choose between doing what we are passionate about and earning a paycheck. When done right, the two can come together so that people can earn a living from what they are passionate about.

“Being able to turn my passion for cars and building custom motorized toys into a profitable business has been life-changing for me,” says David Ankin, inventor and star of the hit show ToyMakerz. “Every day I get to do what I love and I get to make a good living doing it. Being able to share my passion and creativity with the world is an amazing feeling, and at the end of the day I know that it’s also giving me a paycheck. It’s a win-win situation that I wish for everyone.
