TURN YOUR PASSION INTO PROFIT Story by CLYDE ANDERSON

The key is to leverage your ideas, knowledge, expertise and God given gift. Get started by following these simple tips: Do your research and identify a skill or expertise that you already have and build your online business around that. It can be a service or an information product (ebooks, audios, webinars, etc.). The expense can be extremely low and it’s not difficult to do. So do the research and be sure that your product or service is solving a problem or filling a need.

ouldn’t it be great to have “more money than month”, pay bills when they’re due, save and still be able to have disposable income to get yourself something nice? You may have had the answer all along like Dorothy. But instead of clicking your ruby red slippers together, you may just need to click your mouse a few times. There are many people creating new streams of income and making millions on the internet, but the magic is not just in the medium, which is, for example, the Internet. It’s in the successful partnership between the marketer and the medium. There are a multitude of ways to earn income online, the key is to find one that works for you, your goals and your business. There are a few fundamentals that I’ve learned along the way that I believe can assist you in avoid making some of the same mistakes I did. These simple fundamentals will work day after day and year after year. There is no such thing as getting rich quick, so avoid that like the plague. Understand that the cliché “No risk no reward” is often true, but also know that wrong risk can leave you broke. No matter if you’re looking to be the next internet giant like “google”, or just earn some side cash to fill the financial gaps, using the internet to market and sell your product or service may be the answer.

Be passionate about it. Take something you’re already good at and build a business around it. It might be hard to find others interested in what you care so much about, but with over two billion people online, the odds are you can eventually find your market. Follow a blueprint. If it isn’t broke, don’t try to fix it. There’s nothing new under the sun, so why attempt to make it more difficult than it needs to be? If it’s worked once, the odds are it will probably work again. You may just need to refine it a tad to fit for your venture, but it can save lots of time if you use a script. Invest Time. Anything worth having is going to take work to acquire. Sure the internet is a way to generate income but it still takes work to make it work for you. The medium opens you to customers across the globe but you must have a plan and a strategy that takes time to build and see the benefits. Some may hit the success mark a little sooner but if you don’t hit it out the gate, you must still be prepared to nurture your new venture to success. Be patient with the process. Whenever you’re building something significant, it takes time. Respect the process and don’t stop doing the work. Persistence wins games, so you have to remember that just because it’s slow or feels difficult you must stay the course. Once we realize the internet is for more than playing games or connecting socially, we’ll be able to tap into the opportunity that’s available to us all—access to capital using technology. Don’t miss it! For more information visit Clyde Anderson, Financial Life Mentor, at clydeandersononline.com.
