What are you passionate about? – Find your passion, Get revenue!

You are a newbie in this immense online business world. You want to start but you have no idea how… am I right? I know because I felt the same way when I started, but don’t worry about it, it is not as complicated as it seems. Hopefully after you read this post, you will have a great idea which direction you can take to start this new adventure.

Let’s start!

Before we talk about online business, I want you to think what you are passionate about, what you enjoy and love to do, what is that something that makes you feel happy and free. Maybe you love cooking your grandma’s old recipes, or maybe you love traveling to exotic places, or maybe you enjoy simple things, like reading a great book or go fishing with friends?

Please take a moment, just a few minutes to think what is your passion in life. What is that something you can’t live without, maybe you have more than one passion? Please take a pencil and piece of paper and write them down.

Need some inspiration?

Here you have some examples of what I want you to write down.

I would love to learn how to sail. When I’m out in the ocean, the adventure makes feel excited and the freedom makes me feel in peace.

Coffee is my passion. The intense aroma in the early morning gives me the energy to start my day. When I drink a cup of coffee, it makes me forget my problems and help me focus on myself. Coffee keeps me awake when I have a long night ahead. I can’t live without coffee!

I love crochet. I enjoy making gifts for family and friends. It is also a great way to relax and keeps me entertained in the cold winters. I’m always looking for new patterns and ideas but also love to create my own designs.

 

Having trouble finding your passion?

Don’t worry! Let’s see it from another perspective.

Maybe you are very good at doing something or you would like to sell your own products.

What about something you would like to learn or something you would like to teach?

 

Write everything that comes to your mind, think about something that you are very interested in and that you could talk about without getting tired of it.

 

Why am I asking you these questions?

Well, because the answers will make your life much easier when you start and the best of it is that you will get to do what you love!

The idea is to choose something interesting enough for you, something you will enjoy writing about and share with others. That will be the baseline for your online business.

You will not be charged extra, and you’ll keep my hobby alive. It’s a win for everyone, really. Read the full affiliate disclosure here.

 

So, how does it work?

The online business process is very simple, you choose a interest, build a website around that, get visitors and rankings by posting quality content and sharing in social media, promote products related to that interest, people use the links on your website and voilà! you get paid.

  1. Hi!

    It’s so important to find something that you enjoy doing. This is true no matter what you decide to do for income but it is especially true when starting a business. Whether it is a brick and mortar business or online, you will be living with it day in and day out. 

    I took a business foundation class about a year and a half ago and they stressed this there as well. The reason for this is it is going to be hard work and you’ll be essentially living your life around your business. One of the main reasons that most businesses fail is because they aren’t willing to commit the kind of time and drive needed to make it through the first couple of years. If you are passionate about what you do that is the drive you will need to persevere. 

    It’s good that you wrote about this as it is so important for any budding entrepreneur to really think about it before doing almost anything else.

    1. Hi Tina, thanks for your comment.

      I agree, it is hard work and if you don’t love it then you most probably will quit. So, why not starting with something you are really interested in.

  2. Thanks for this informative and educative post. This really came at the right time of my life. I’m a newbie in online business and I am thinking of building a website but I don’t really know what to start doing with it but reading through this post I now know what to do with it . I love writing but please can you tell me how I can make money with that.

    1. Hi Lok! If your already have a niche and want to get revenue then you need to start implementing marketing strategies such as affiliate marketing, ads, sales funnels, in your site.

      If you don’t know how, I recommend you to join Wealthy Affiliate. This is a program that will teach you about how to build and grow your website and how you can make money with it. It is perfect for beginners! Check out my post What is Wealthy Affiliate about? to learn more.

      Any question, just contact me and sign up to my newsletter

  3. I love sailing and I would love to promote an idea associated to sailing!  I started learning when I was a kid so I’m very knowledgeable and think I could easily communicate my passion to others on the topic since I already teach at my university sailing club!

    But…I don’t think there are any affiliate clubs associated to sail boats.  Any other thoughts on how I might take advantage of my passion for sailing?

    1. Hi Craig, great to hear you have a passion and you could definitely share your experience with others.

      Now, affiliate program… I just did a search in Google and found several programs, not only for sailing boats, but for everything related to sailing. You can promote sailing classes, sailing clubs, accessories, spare parts, clothes… the list continues, just type “sailing affiliate programs” and you will get tons of sites. If you want something more specific you could search something like “sailing boats affiliate program” and so on. Well, hope it helps! Send me an email to jenny@ebiznewbie.com if you have more questions😉

  5. I really think that this article is great and very helpful. So many people today are forced to do something else because they don’t have conditions to work on their passion. I like to help people about how to earn money online and that is something that I am striving for. Every one of us have its own passion and we should not allow that life take it from us.

    1. Hi Daniel, thanks for your comment! Totally agree, we should strive for what we love and better yet if we can earn a little money from it on the side. We share a passion, helping people to succeed is one of mine too 😊

  6. Hi Jenny!

    I agree with you that we should find our passion and then put this into life. This is actually important also if you want to build some business. You mentioned Wealthy Affiliate platform, which is excelent for online business.

I am sure any business takes time especially online business. I am glad you mentioned in your post this important fact as well.

    Thank you for this great post!

Having an online business does require hard work but you will see results if you love what you are doing.

      Thanks for your comment.

  8. It is really fun to know that you can make money doing something you love. I think too many of us compromise and stay in jobs we hate because there is security in them, never realizing our potential to do so much more and have such a greater impact on the world. I love Wealthy Affiliate so far and can’t wait to see what the future holds! Thanks for the article. I hope it helps others to realize the same thing I did!

    1. Hi Steve, thanks for your comment! I think the way we were educated was always towards getting a job and keep it no matter what because, as you say, it brings some sort of security. But we can do so much more and could enjoy even more when doing something with love. It is great you are part of this awesome community at Wealthy Affiliate!

  9. It is awesome to know that you can turn your passion into an online business! It is so motivating to work when you have a genuine interest in what you are pursuing. Thanks for the info!

    1. Yes, it definitely makes it easy and enjoyable for you when researching and writing something you are interested. Thanks for your comment!

  10. Hi Jenny, you have the beginnings of a great site!
    I’m an affiliate marketer too and my niche is internet marketing, in Australia.
    My purpose is to bring more awareness to the Australian public about opportunities available online and to help my readers create and build their own work from home business.
    I really love learning more and more about internet marketing and how to monetise a website, for the benefit of my own business and to assist others.
