#5: Can My Passion Be A Business?

2020 has been something else, hasn’t it? I mean, I have heard of different reactions to this extraordinary year from a lot of people around me or from friends.

But the common thread, the one thing that I have noticed that was similar for many people I know is that 2020 has given them TIME.

Time to start concentrating on passions and give them their overdue attention OR time that was used to evaluate personal situations, especially that many have woken up to the fragile nature of the job market, and the current shakiness of job security.

As a result, so many of you are deciding to make a shift.

Yes, things haven’t been easy, but the silver lining to this year is the uncomfortable nature of change that helps us re-evaluate our lives, our plans, our ambitions, our struggles, and discomforts and thinking of ways of growth, of shifting the mindset, of looking at opportunities.

If you are standing at this crossroad, thinking of uncomfortable changes, having tons of ideas or passions and wanting to turn them into businesses, then this episode is for you. 

The question is: how can you know if something you are passionate about can be a business? Something you love can be turned into your livelihood. That’s a question that I get asked a lot.

If you are considering turning something you’re passionate about into a business and do not know whether this passion CAN be a business, then listen carefully.

In this episode, I share steps and techniques that can help you in the research and decision process.
