TIP FOUR: Find a mentor.

Seek out two or three people you admire in your field. Talk to them personally if you can. Often people will freely share their ups and downs on the road to success. Resist the urge to completely copy them though, find your own way of delivering your gifts. Research books, articles and other information to help you on your own path.

TIP FIVE: Stay positive.

Replace fear and doubt with faith and determination. You will have good days and bad days. Know that this is part of the process and keep going. Have daily rituals that invoke a positive mindset. Those that “make it” are the ones that don’t give up. Keep positive, supportive people in your circle. Phase out the negative people and energy vampires.

TIP SIX: Get great at Sales and Marketing.

Think of sales as how will you best serve your clients and marketing as the best methods for reaching them. Serving people today is about nurturing your relationships and being real and delivering on your promise.

TIP SEVEN: Show me the money.

The money flows when you are able to do three things well. The first is investing in yourself and honing your craft. Take classes, read and practice, practice, practice your skills. The second is to network and cultivate strong relationships with like-minded people in your field. Get known for the expertise you provide. The third is recognizing the value of your service and charging accordingly.

Making money from your passion takes time. There is no overnight success. If you are passionate about something other than your current job, make a plan, take action and use your head, heart and above all your intuition to guide your choices and go for it.
