Assuming that you have been working on your project for quite some time now and there are even times that you have switched between projects for quite a few times. You have even tried out a couple of things, and it hasn’t brought the amount of cash that you have expected it to do so. Thus it brought you back to the drawing board. It has gotten to the point that you have felt that it is not getting anywhere. You are frustrated that you are not making any more money even with the effort that you have put in it. There are times that you want to give up.
If this is what you feel right now, then you are not alone. However, there is something that you can do to make your passion get its energy.
Keep in mind that making cash from your passion is the most difficult piece of your efforts, but only so when you do not set it up correctly from the beginning. There are dozens of highly talented, skilled and driven people that have put up awesome businesses – projects that have influenced and changed the world.
In the entire cycle, the biggest issue you have to face is the monetization part. You have done all the work. And even if you already have the cash, all of these will not happen without the minimal reward that will spur you.
Start Your Day with Something You Love
Every business becomes easier through the monetization phase when you do something that you love. If you are enjoying what you are doing right now and not just doing it for money, then it will become easier for you to go the extra mile and put a couple more hours all for influencing one more person, just to get up and keep yourself pressing on even when the going gets tough.
It is a fact that if you love what you are doing every day, you will find it very quickly on what you are going to work, especially on a project that gives you a lot of energy. You will end up getting more energy right at the end of the day compared to when you just started. Getting up early in the morning with the day will become effortless since you are aligned with what you are naturally – spending most of the day with what you love to do. This is why many successful entrepreneurs never lose their drive because they know their passion is fueling them more instead of losing energy.
Keep in mind as this is a very important point since it shapes up everything that comes right after it. This is where you much of your frustration and pain has come from since you are struggling to get to the point that you are working or making a profit. Having this kind of thought will get you misaligned with what you love to do.
The final phase of monetizing your talents and skills is by considering lag time. Depending on the groundwork that you have poured out in your project, monetizing the effort of your passion will vary from a couple of days, several weeks to several months. There are even startup businesses that are not paying dividends since they had to reinvest their profits into expanding their business more.
The main point here is that you need to take lag time into account, no matter the size of your business you are planning to grow into. You cannot start with an idea right now, and you get to monetize it in a couple of days. Monetizing your passion is the final stage of your project.
