Beautiful Mess - A Conversation with Jeff Rohrer
Jeff is one of the most interesting people I know. He's a wonderful walking and talking complicated beautiful human. I really admire how he has created four or five stages of his life, doing only what he's passionate about, and making a good living at it. All my passions are just buckets into which I pour money...not Jeff. He found a way to make money only doing and working on projects he loves.
