Growing a business from a passion to success business with Jason Kingsley
Manage episode 330947434 series 2286714
In today's conversation with Jason Kingsley, we talk about how you can turn your hobby into a business by simply following your passion. For Jason, building a company from hobby to business started from a desire to get better at the things he loves.
When Jason Kingsley started out, it really wasn't possible to build a company in the gaming industry. Computers were still in their infancy.
But he fell in love with computers from an early age, and eventually started to develop games with his brother. Jason wanted to become a creative entrepreneur, something that represented a whole new area of exploration for him.
He ended up going to Oxford and getting a degree in Zoology because he saw it as something sensible to do. But all the while, he continued to work on video games. Jason Kingsley never gave up on the idea that you can turn your hobby into a business.
But he wasn't always business-savvy and didn’t have it in mind to transform a hobby to business when he was first working on his passion. In fact, as he explains it, he had to learn entrepreneurship on the job while building a company.
The key to his success lies in his approach. He takes all of his hobbies very seriously, always striving to be the best that he can be. From that passionate attitude toward his pursuits, companies have generally followed.
With Rebellion, Jason Kingsley wasn't only able to create one of the most successful independent video game studios in the world, he was also able to do something perhaps even more important: he's shown that it's possible to turn your hobby into a business, and pursue something you love.
When building a company, start with passion. Just ask Jason Kingsley. It's sure worked for him, going from hobby to business!
