Have you heard the saying “do what you love and the money will come”? It’s been a hard saying to understand for me because I’ve been programmed by those around me to think “work hard and the money will come”. Although I have done lots of things that I love I have never found it easy to attach monetary value to my loves. Another challenge for me is that there are so many things that I love to do that I don’t have enough time to get it all in or to the point of making money with it.
That lead me to believe that there was something missing from that saying alone. I do a lot of things I love constantly but they don’t always turn into money.
“focus a lot of your time specifically on doing one thing you love and money will come from it”
You can’t just “do it” you have to “do a ton of it”.
Yup that about sums it up for me.
That means that I need to spread myself less thin and start devoting myself to one of the things I love so that I will be able to make money doing it. The one thing that is true in both is that it is possible to make money doing something you love. I think that will be the focus of the next few years for me. Choose one of my many loves, focus on it, and see if I can turn it into a full time lucrative revenue stream. Now to figure out which one. I’ll keep you posted.
