Now that you have found it, you need to figure out how to make money with your passion. It is not something that will happen overnight, but by putting in the time, and enjoying the process, you will be able to start doing something that you love, and make it work for you, rather than working for someone else and feeling that you are dying inside.
If you are serious about getting out of the rat race, and following your passion, then it is worth staying the course. Here are a few ideas to get started:
Start a blog
Start blogging about your passion, and in this way, you will discover others that have the same interests as you. This will open more doors, and get you meeting new people. There are ways to make money through a blog, such as by using affiliate marketing, which can be learned at Wealthy Affiliate, as described in my blog post here
Make a website
You can start an eCommerce site, selling products related to your passion, that you either physically handle, or through inventory arbitrage (where you use a third person to handle the inventory) For more on that see my post here. Or alternatively, create a website reviewing other products, and make money using affiliates, which is covered extensively in my post here.
Join a Freelance sites
There are several freelance sites out there , where people like you and me are making money from the comfort of their own home. You can find work teaching, doing data entry, being a virtual assistant and many more. If this interests you find out more here.
Whichever path you take, there are a few things that you need to remember:
Don’t listen to the naysayers
There will be plenty of people who will tell you it is not possible, that everyone must work in a job, that nothing is easy in life and so on. Do not let them put you off! This is possible, with dedication and focus, so do not lose sight of that. It will take time to build up your business, but once you do, there will be no looking back!
Invest your time
Make a point of spending a certain amount of time every day on making this happen. At the beginning it will need to be around your regular job, so a couple of hours in the evening will be necessary to start the ball rolling. Set a time and be strict with yourself, do not make any excuses.
Now it’s your turn!
