Profession to Passion: How one consultant was inspired to follow her dream of floral design


Most people just imagine their dream job from time to time -- but some are willing to risk it all to pursue their dreams.

In the newest episode of AOL's Profession to Passion you'll explore the unconventional careers of the few who have said goodbye to their traditional nine-to-fives to pursue their passions.

Makini Regal went from being a management consultant to pursuing her dream of opening a flower and event design company. Regal thought she had "made it" after getting a job in the competitive world of consulting straight out of graduate school, but she soon felt unfulfilled.

"I wanted to use my hands and be creative," Regal told AOL. She saw a sign in a Harlem storefront for a 'floral design program' and was inspired to sign up. From that point on, she was in love with flowers.
