I've always just put my head down and gone to work and do the best job I can... never really cared what terminology I threw at it. I'm an immigrant and the child of immigrants... what we knew is how to go to work and make it happen. No luxury of putting fancy names to what we did.

when I was actively listing new subdivisions, they intersected.... 

my job description has changed now that I am no longer actively listing.... vocation/avocation NEVER intersect....   marketing is my vocation/strength training is my passion.....

Not at all. But for me, I earn money via BOTH.
I've always had at least a couple of things going on.

My avocation helps with ANYTHING ELSE I am doing.

I don't find it difficult to define or describe either and in my opinion when they cease to intersect, it's time to retire.

For now, life is good at the intersection!

1st Question:   It may be for some people however not for me. 

2nd Question:  My world is not black and white. 

3rd Question:  There may be a cross over depending on the situation/circumstances.

No, I don't find that difficult.  My real estate is on an intersect and spurs abilities to explore avocation venues I would not have had access to or need to explore otherwise.
