Maker Monday – A lifetime of LEGO

 

Do you or your little ones love playing with LEGO?  Did you know that it’s possible to make building with LEGO an actual profession?

That’s what happened for Georg Schmitt.  He was just four years old when he received his first LEGO set and never stopped building.

Now he is a LEGO Certified Professional, building massive and incredibly detailed creations. Georg has started his own company, producing professional models made out of LEGO bricks.

What I love about this story is that someone took something he loved and focused that passion with discipline and dedication and it made a career out it.  It goes to show you that you should never minimize the things that spark joy in your life, because you never know where they will lead.
