This is the moment you realise you have been so caught up blogging for other businesses … you forgot to blog for your own.
I absolutely love writing and I know I am extremely grateful to be getting paid to do it. It’s been a hard slog, but I am glad to say I am one of the lucky few who have made it in the employment stakes.
Being a writer in 2016 is kinda like having a hobby… well that is how most people will see it. It is something people expect you to do on weekends for kicks, not as your day job. Truth is, most people are – or can be – writers these days. It is no longer considered a profession of artists. There are very few literary geniuses bursting off the local bookstore shelf these days.
Tonight I am about to sit down for yet another blog intended for a page that is not my own, and it is about working your passion. The angle – How to turn your passion into profit. It may sound like an easy article to write, it’s not! Turning your passion to profit successfully, is a job not for the faint-hearted. Because when you get down to it, turning your passion into something that is suppose to make you money, automatically places your love on the firing line… and trust me, it will get fired at.
There will be times when you feel your passion is messing with you. And, there will be times when you don’t look at your passion with the eyes of love – it will be more like the eyes of loathe. Ask a passionate parachuter to jump out of a plane 7 days a week as opposed to one weekend a month, and they will soon start to loathe the jump.
The truth is, turning your passion to profit means sacrifice. Yes, you may get the chance to love what you do and hopefully it will afford you more time to do other things – but I guarantee you one thing … you will at one time or another start to look at your passion with different eyes. The sacrifice? Losing the love for what it is you love to do.
Please feel free to start a discussion below. I would love to know the ups and downs of how you have managed your passion company/job. If you are interested in the article I am about to write, please head over to http://www.hatcheddesigns.com.au
Until next time,
