Passion

Well, now that you are retired from that main, twenty year career, and you have passed through the decompression stage, you are no doubt looking for something interesting and meaningful to do.  Something that can be done from home and something that will add a few dollars to that pension income. Have you given any thought to creating an online business? There’s a huge potential here because we know that online searches and traffic continues to grow.  “What would an online business be about?” you ask. Online experts will suggest that you turn your passion into business.

We hear that term “passion” a lot these days, but what does it really mean in relation to business?

The Meaning of PassionPassion

Wikipedia defines it as “intense enthusiasm”. Many books and websites are written about finding your passion, but maybe the place to begin is to discover what it means to you.  

  • Is it a hobby or pass time?
  • Is it your life’s work?
  • Is it addressing some very important lacking?
  • Is it emotional reward?
  • Does it sooth you?
  • Does it challenge you?
  • Does it take you into flow?

There seem to be lots of ways to define it.  Perhaps this diagram will help you define it for yourself.

Spend Some Time On This

The next time you are sitting in the sunshine with nothing to do but just be…why not give your passion some thought.

  • What does it mean?
  • What does it do for you?
  • What is your passion?

You could do some journaling on the topic, or it could be the subject of an artistic activity.  

 Discover How To Turn Your Passion Into Business

The first step is to discover your own passion; then you consider how others can benefit from it.  And decide who those “others” would be. All this information is rolled into what is referred to as your business Niche.  This is just the beginning, but it is the foundation – there is still lots to do and know. My online community Wealthy Affiliate  is a great place to learn how to create a website and build your online business from there.

Now if you are still uncertain about what your own passion is, I provide a complimentary online course to help you discover it.  “How To Find My Passion” can be accessed here.
