Are you trying to discover your passion and are unsure what you like doing? No idea what you can do that you will love, that can also pay the bills?
Allow me to make you a wild suggestion: start a blog!
Seriously. Blogging has opened so many doors and freedoms for me. And I am now earning 6 figures a year from it. I used to think that creating income online meant coming up with a product or service idea and building a business around that.
Maybe it benefits them, or on the flip side, helps them solve a problem. I used to think that the magic idea would come to me like a bolt of lightning, a stroke of genius, that THE one idea would change everything.
After over a decade of earning a full-time living from blogging, I’ve learned that all of those previous assumptions were way off. Blogging is way more powerful than most people know!
What I’ve Learned About Online Businesses
But I soon discovered that this type of thinking just doesn’t work (at least not for me!) Maybe it did years ago, but things are changing so fast. I think that’s old school thinking now.
Because thinking up the next big idea kind of comes from a place of disconnect rather than of service.
And let’s be real: we can feel the difference.
So what do I wish I had known before I started my first business — Just start a blog!
This is the opposite of waiting for the Big Idea, but it’s so so much better.
You get to tip your toe in and test the water, without the usual cash outlay of traditional businesses.
Blogging flips the usual progression of traditional business – engaging with your audience first and marrying what problem they need solving with your unique passions and skills.
The best bit is that you don’t have to have it all figured out. In fact, you won’t be able to plan it all with this model. And that is liberating.
Publish Your Passion & Profit
If you’ve built your blog then you’re already on a great path to generating online income sooner than you might think!
I have spent several years studying, testing and implementing in the field of online content creation. I did also graduate from University with a BA in digital media. But honestly, I learned more just by working on my blog and figuring out things as I went along!
Blogging as a business requires much much more than just writing articles. You need to learn branding, WordPress, marketing (social, email and affiliate respectfully), business development, advertising, and the list goes on.
So I decided to collect all of my best tips and strategies and put it all in one big course bundle. So that I can help beginners get a solid jumpstart to make your first $1,000/month blogging using free traffic, affiliate marketing, and other awesome strategies!
I think once we’ve made the decision go to for it, to launch the blog, to share our passions, and step up – it’s important to keep that momentum and get our message out there.
That way it carries a momentum of its own, and this stops us from second-guessing ourselves and perhaps chickening out!
Going half-in and seeing stats not increase is demoralizing (yep I’ve been there) and, therefore, the danger-zone that must be avoided at all costs.
When our confidence falls so does our courage.
Instead, we can focus on our passion and the good that can come from sharing our message. There’s power in that joy.
Don’t let the doubt creep in. People need what you have to share. And possibly, you need to share it most of all.
If you’ve just built and launched your blog or if you’ve been in the not-having-a-breakthrough phase, I highly recommend you enroll in this training. Look at the curriculum to see if it’s right for you.
