Make sure that you’re actually good at what you do.
Ask yourself if you’re willing to put in the hard work and if there is a market for you to tap into. Even if it’s just talking to some of the regulars at your favorite restaurant or bar, their feedback can be priceless.
Let’s say that your passion is playing the guitar. What void can you fill in that marketplace? For example, if you can repair guitars and realize that there isn’t a repair shop anywhere else around, that could be a business opportunity.
You also need to ask yourself how you can make the industry better.
Think of all the various ways that you can actually make money off your passion. This may include:
While you should have some sort of experience or skills to offer, there’s always room for you to learn and grow.
Don’t wait to start your business until after you’ve mastered a craft. You will continue to hone your skills all along your journey.
Find techniques that can not only help you get outside of your comfort zone but also work on improving your weaknesses.
You don’t have to become a guru. Just familiar enough in that area so that you’re more comfortable and can deliver what people need and want.
It’s difficult to maintain your passion as you attempt to grow a legitimate business.
Always make fun and passion a priority. This means hiring people who are equally passionate as you are about your idea or product, creating policies and branding that reflect your passion, and building a company that feels the same way to others.
It takes 10,000 hours to become a master at something.
Don't let those hours discourage you from moving ahead with your plan. Never stop practicing on perfecting your skills. Ask for feedback on what you are doing and to track your progress.
Roadblocks are all of the factors that are preventing you from following your dreams.
For example, if you’re not familiar with coding or programming, but require a website, then hire a coder. If you believe that your passion won’t be profitable then look for alternative ways to monetize your passion by being flexible.
If you need money to help scale your business, instead of going to your local bank or searching for investors, crowdfund your idea on Kickstarter, Indiegogo or GoFundMe.
Another option would be to use peer-to-peer-lending sites like LendingTree where you can get matched with like-minded people directly in your business area.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
