According to a Gallup Poll, our planet has a broken workplace. Only 15% of employees worldwide are engaged at work. That means 85% of full-time workers around the world hate their jobs. A billion people feel disengaged at work. In the United States, things are only slightly better–about 70% half American workers loathe their jobs.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. The way to do work that you love is to find your passion. Still, passion alone is not enough. You also have to choose a line of work other people value and will pay you to do.
While it’s possible to find your passion working for a corporation, the chances of finding the perfect workplace are highly unlikely. Often, those who work on something they love become solopreneurs or build their own business.
Here are a few suggestions on how to make money from your passion:
Buy a Franchise
It’s far easier to join a franchise than start your own brick-and-mortar business from scratch. Because your franchise will provide you with a recognized brand name, your business will be able to leverage pre-established market awareness.
Buying a franchise can save you time and money, especially if you have no business background. You’ll avoid making expensive mistakes because you won’t have to learn everything about the business before turning a profit. In fact, when you buy a franchise, all you have to do is focus on day-to-day business activities.
Naturally, you’ll want to choose a franchise that reflects your passion—otherwise, you’ll just be buying yourself a job. If, for instance, you have a passion for fitness, then buy an indoor cycling studio franchise.
Start a Blog
If you have a passion for something, you can make money blogging about it, sharing your ideas with other people who share your passion.
First, find a niche that reflects your passion.
Next, pick your domain name and sign up for a web hosting account.
Then, choose a blogging platform. Many blogging experts recommend setting up a self-hosted WordPress blog.
After that, select a free or paid theme and design it to suit your needs.
Finally, create a publishing schedule, write regularly, and market your blog.
Build an Online Course
If you’re an expert at something other people would love to learn, then consider creating an online course. You might have studied something in-depth, perhaps even earning a degree in it, or you may have gained your expertise through years of experience.
You could make your online course fun and easy, or simple and creative, or deep and life-changing. A cooking class is fun and easy. A class on enhancing productivity is simple and creative. A class on how to become a well-paid photography professional is deep and life-changing.
The biggest advantage of building an online course is that you do the work just once and then get paid for it repeatedly, sometimes for many years.
First, choose a course topic.
Next, research your idea to see if it has enough market demand.
Then, create a course plan and flesh out each of the modules.
After that, use an e-commerce platform that sells courses to host your course
Finally, find the best ways to market your online course. Before advertising your course, hire a copywriter to create magnetic headlines and an interesting description of your class.
In conclusion, find your passion and make a living from it. Since you will probably spend most of your life working, you might as well do something you love.
Imagine how the world would change for the better if people found work that they loved to do?
The money will follow when you do work you love and help people solve a particular problem.
