Practice When No One's Watching
Professional sand sculptor Jenny Rossen treasured sand castles since she was a child, but didn't know she could turn that passion into a career.

"I've loved sand castles since I was a kid, so even as a grown-up I'd build them on my hometown beach in Australia. At some point people started tossing money on my towel, which I found offensive. I wasn't begging! But local malls, and then car shows and festivals in other countries started commissioning me. Twenty-seven years later, it's my main gig."
