Your stomach is more twisted than a Stephen King novel.
Maybe it’s sadness. . . maybe it’s anger. . .maybe you’d call it something else. . .
Whatever it is, it’s not good.
But it’s there because you know you’re not being honest with yourself.
You want to do one thing, but you’re doing another.
And it hurts.
Every time you get up and go to a job that you don’t like, you take another stab at yourself. Every time you think you’ll never make it doing the work you really want to be doing, you twist the knife a little deeper.
And every time you wonder: Am I ever really going to be able to do what I love to do?
Those stab wounds you suffered wondering how to make the work you love profitable make you bleed out a bit more. . .
Because NOT making it work means you don’t get to do what you love. It means you return to work you don’t want to be doing. It means you’ve failed.
Am I right?
Small Business Help
People who are passionate about their work are a special breed. You aren’t content to wait for Friday to roll around, or to stand by while someone else makes stuff happen in the world.
You have something on fire inside you, and while you’re sitting at your cubicle, it is burning a hole in your soul, trying to be let out.
There’s just one little problem. . .
You can’t seem to connect the dots to make it into a real, viable business.
Maybe you’re stuck right at the beginning, trying to figure out how to take what you love and turn it into something someone will pay you for.
Maybe you’ve got a business already, but it seems like it’s not going anywhere and you just can’t figure out what you’re doing wrong.
Or maybe you love what you’re doing and there aren’t enough hours in the day to do it (especially if you have to go to work for some of those hours), but it feels wrong to charge money for the work you love.
Small Business Help: Passion Based Business & Making Money
Passionate entrepreneurs are different. Passion based business is different.
I’ve seen the mistakes that passionate entrepreneurs make and have made plenty of them myself.
But this is the point:
If you love to write, write.
If you love to paint, paint.
If you want to coach, photograph, sell your invention, be a massage therapist, or do anything else that makes you passionate, don’t let anything get in your way.
And that includes money.
That doesn’t mean you don’t need money.
That’s what confuses a lot of people.
You don’t have to starve to do what you love.
You have to figure out how to make doing what you love pay you. You have to do things differently from everybody else. You have to be clever. You can’t just do what you love.
You have to do what you love and run a damn good business around it.
[Tweet “Do what you love and run a damn good #business around it. “]
When you do that, you can do what you love sustainably.
And isn’t that what you want?
No more tying yourself up in knots over doing work you hate.
No more worrying about having to give it all up and going back to a “normal” life.
No more wondering what bills are going to get paid and what’s going to have to wait.
You have a fire inside you. You have genius. Now it’s time to channel it and make sure that the world hears what you have to say.
