How To Make Money From Passions

Maverick Money Makers � 1997 – 2008

To make money online many people jump right in before they are properly prepared. You know that to be a rocket scientist, a doctor, a brick layer, a construction worker, an office worker, a teacher there are prerequisites, things you must learn, before you can be successful, you don’t just jump right in unprepared.

The same applies to the Internet marketing industry even though there are unsavory people out there who’d have you believe it’s a “Walk in the Park” and requires no more than the belief that you can just do it.

And I’ll have to admit, it is a walk in the park compared to what you have to put up with in the working world punching a clock being a subordinate to someone who does not have your interests in mind, but there are still rules you have to follow and pitfalls you must avoid to actually make Internet marketing work for you.

Most people will not make a dime online and yet there are others who will make more in one month than most people make in a whole year. Why is that?

My answer begins with the age-old chicken or egg question, “what comes first the chicken or the egg”? Personally I vote for, well never mind, each argument you or I make comes back to the same old conclusion – I have no clue and I don’t think many of us do either.

But one thing I do have a clue about and know for sure is that to make money online you must first have Passion for the company products and/or service of any Internet business from which you expect to make money.

Passion in this sense simply means that you’ve researched and like the company and products or services. It is then that you translate that like (or Passion) into the education, excitement and work that usually accompany Passion.

I will have to say that many online entrepreneurs are so good at what they do that they ignore passion because they can sell anything. But I’m concerned about those of you who are not so knowledgeable at working an online business successfully.

Now, I’m not trying to make anyone believe that Passion is the only thing necessary. Because to be successful you must also have a good website, good marketing, widespread advertising, company support, effective keywords, and etc. Those things are often learned from the company you join – but sidestep Passion and you reduce your chances for success dramatically.

It therefore follows that, if you have no Passion for the company and the products and services provided by that company, again, you won’t attempt to do the work you are being taught.

Internet marketing work is typically not all that difficult or time consuming but it does take motivation caused by Passion to get you off and running with a sustained effort so that you won’t stumble.

You have a great resource in the Internet search engines to search about the Internet Marketing industry for business opportunities, USE IT!

Your research should uncover a company that you like and have confidence in. It should be solid, founded on great principles, and easy to understand with great products and services that are sell-able for which you can have Passion. If you don’t find it move on,
You can find the right opportunity containing the attributes identified above.

Comments like, well, that one sounds good and the compensation plan is excellent so I guess I’ll start that business – does not sound like a decision based on anything near Passion. And remember when you hear that an Internet “guru” does that, don’t be tempted, because as I said earlier they are experienced and can sell just about anything, without being Passionate about the company products and services.

Note: By the way it’s your goal to get to the point where you can sell about anything online. That end skill and goal is a worthy one indeed.

Remember, there are other steps you must make before you step into Internet Marketing but if you don’t first find the right company products and services to be passionate about, all of those other steps may just cause you a lot of frustration instead of bringing you great success.

Not being Passionate about a company and products and services that has market proof that it will sell is a pitfall you simply must avoid.

A Liitle About Me…

 My name is Midge. I am a retired teacher who spent 27 years teaching fourth and fifth graders. I really wasn’t ready to retire, either emotionally or financially, but I had two back surgeries and was left with permanent nerve damage, so I now walk with the help of two canes. As you can imagine, it is difficult to teach when you are handicapped, so I was forced to retire.
 I have always been a very active person, so I determined that although I had to walk with two canes, I would not let it affect my attitude or my lifestyle more than necessary. After all, you can always find someone worse off than you are!  I love to read and do crosstitch, and those things can be done sitting in a chair. I also teach a Bible Study group, and help facilitate a Divorce Care group at my church. In addition to these activities, I am a Literacy Volunteer, who works for two hours each week at our local library teaching two adults to read. I am active in the local branch of the Retired Teachers, and as a member, in addition to the monthly meeting,  I’m involved in a book club once a month and a crafty group which also meets once a month to make items for a Christmas fair that supports a scholarship fund. I am also a member of the Scholarship committee. I live with my Mom, who has macular degeneration and is legally blind. She can’t see anything within five feet in front of her, and is no longer able to read or do many of the activities she once did. She depends on me to get her to appointments and meetings, including a group she helped start called PALS, made up of four area Lutheran churches. I am vice president of this group which meets once a month to have a dinner and a program. I am also the secretary in charge of preparing the agenda and word games for each meeting and making the announcements for the meeting. As you can see, I keep busy, but I do things I’m able to do, and that makes me happy.
 I found out that my retirement income needed to be supplemented,  so I started to look for a job I could do. In the winter, when it’s snowy and icy, I’m confined to home, so I really needed a job that I could do from home. I started to investigate online jobs, thinking that the work would be interesting and hopefully lucrative, and since I already had a computer I was equipped. Little did I realize the learning curve that was involved in developing an online business! There are so many programs which promise you easy money and abundant wealth that it’s hard to know which ones are legitimate. I got to the point where I would “google” the new offers to see what others said about them, whether or not they were scams. That method worked  somewhat well, but almost every program had some dissenters, so it wasn’t all that helpful. After more than a year and thousands of dollars spent, there are some programs that I highly recommend. On my website, I will review and recommend the ones I have found to be the best for training, available help, and ease of use. I hope you find this advice helpful and I wish you the best of luck in your online endeavors, should you choose to supplement your income this way.  I would also encourage you to evaluate programs you have found to be beneficial, so that others can benefit from your experience. We can help one another! By the way, I donate 10 % of my profits to Literacy Volunteers for the purposes of helping adults learn to read, a cause very dear to my heart.
