    Its interesting that we have gone from the gifted amateur to the professional athlete. I wonder to what extent that the professional athlete is motivated compared to the gifted amateur?

      The fire service has helped me think about the connection between giftedness and occupation.

We would have considered too professional as an adjective and Professional as a noun. I have been a small p person hoping that it is our values not our remuneration that guide us.
