5 Key Questions That Will Help You Turn Your Passion into Money.

Many people know what their passion is, but are frustrated in the process of trying to turn their passion into profit.

Valorie Burton said and i quote "Do what you love and the rewards will come."

I was intrigued, and quite skeptical when i read this advice but I really wanted to believe that statement could be true. If I followed my
passion, and pursued what I loved for a living, would the rewards really come? The answer, I have discovered, is "YES." One of the chapters in my new book, START YOUR OWN SMALL BUSINESS , is
appropriately named, "Do what you love and the rewards will come."

They don't always comes overnight, but they do come in God's divine timing. What is that you love that you'd like to do (or do more of) for a living? The most gratifying
rewards are fulfillment and joy, but today I want to share five questions to consider when you want to make money pursuing your purpose—that "thing" you are passionate about.

Many people know what their passion is, but are frustrated in the process of trying to turn their passion into profit. Whether you are
running your own small business, starting a business, or seeking that next promotion, just try to answer these five questions it will help you increase the financial rewards of doing what you love:

1. WHAT IMPACT WILL
WHAT YOUR'RE PASSIONATE ABOUT MAKE IN OTHERS' LIVES?

Notice, I didn't ask "what are you passionate about"? Instead, I want you to determine the purpose of your passion, which is using it to positively impact the world. That type of drive attracts opportunities that often lead to raises, job offers, and new business. To turn your
passion into profit, you must fulfill a purpose that others need or want.
Unfortunately, people and companies aren't particularly concerned with whether you get to pursue your passion.

They spend money on people, products and services that fulfill their needs and desires. When you focus on your passion—then find a
way to allow your passion to impact others, you have a winning formula!

2. HAVE YOU MASTERED YOUR CRAFT?
It isn't enough to have talent. Allow your passion to fuel a desire to learn more about your field of endeavor—and improve your skills
and knowledge. You see most of the successful comedians,musicians and actors did not just sit down or sleep over it instead they work day and night to improve themselves to add more positive value to others  today Those who "master their craft," go above and beyond others in their field. They
introduce new ways of doing things, inspire trends, and blaze trails that others follow.

3. ARE YOU PASSION-DRIVEN OR PROFIT- DRIVEN?
When you are passionate about what you do, you give 110%. Those who are most sought- after for their skills are often those whose
passion creates results that people need. Their passion for what they do sparks creativity, perseverance and excellence. Don't put money first but think of how you are going to satisfy those who need what you have, if your clients or customer can derive 100% value from what you offer then be rest assured that you will make money because your products or services will speak for you. You cannot underestimate the power of passion to produce excellence and perseverance—two assets you
need to truly profit from what you love. Success comes to those who are willing to stay the course despite adversities, challenges and distractions.

4. DO YOU KNOW HOW TO
MAKE MONEY?
I know you will say yes but i bet you don't know how..! If the goal is to increase your income, then seek knowledge about how best to do that. Many people fail to earn more because they haven't made financial education a priority. While passion is a key to attracting financial rewards, making more money also means
learning to living below your means, ask for what you are worth, invest and spend wisely. If you are running a business, it also means hiring good people (financial and legal
advisors, as well as staff), marketing, and reigning in expenses. Take classes,attend seminars /workshops, read financial books, and learn lessons from those
who are already where you want to be.

5. ARE YOU READY TO
TAKE A BOLD STEP OF FAITH?
Fear is the biggest obstacle to pursuing your dreams. Many people insist it is a lack of money or time or resources, but it is often a fear of failure, rejection, or even a fear of
success, that holds a person back. What is it that you've been wanting to pursue that you've been hesitating about? Take baby steps if you have to, but be willing to step out on faith to use the natural gifts and talents that you are passionate about. If you do what you love,
patiently and persistently, the rewards WILL surely come.

Dream Big & Achieve It.
