Mastering Your Craft Brings You Wealth For a Lifetime

 

 

AmazonSales2016

I wanted to post my results for 2016 sales, showing what can happen while learning to master your craft.  There are fees for doing business with Amazon, my profit was 50% of the product sales, so worth it because they do so much of the work for you.

Looking forward to tweaking my skills for 2017 with my E-commerce training.

This is my tool of choice for pursuing my passion, and its just the beginning.  I will continue this journey and grow through the process.

If this is something that can help you, leave a comment and grab the ebook.

How Do You Find Your Passion and Fuel It?

passion

 

What brings a smile and makes you feel happy every time you do it?

What natural, effortless talent or skill do you have?

What is the one thing you could do every day, and not get tired or bored doing it?

If you can identify the answer to these questions, it will lead you to your passion.

Since you have now identified that talent or skill, take a few minutes and think of ways to monetize your expertise.

You can talk and share your expertise through blogging, videos, ebooks, and the process of fueling your passion into profit begins.

People are looking for things like, how to take better iphone pictures, how to properly apply eye shadow, how to plan for early retirement, how to cook low fat meals.  You can be that person with the answers.

This is just a quick overview, to get you started on this wonderful journey of finding the ultimate plan for living your passion, and getting paid doing what makes you happy.

From personal experience, I had to take an early retirement, from teaching, to provide home care for both of my parents. Searching for ways to supplement my income, I took my talent of photography and my love for shopping to start a business from home.

Its a great feeling to share the shift that has taken place in my life, because so many people are looking to do the same.  This will always be a work in progress and you must continue to perfect your craft, whatever it is.

Just know that its all up to you to figure it out, conquer the fear, and take the first step.  We are here to help you.

I Quit

After 20 years of teaching in the public school system, I quit…well I took an early retirement, so that I can take care of my parents.  So much has changed but it feels so good to be here for them.  After the sleepless nights, the guilt of leaving them with professional strangers, and the needless stress,  an enormous weight has been lifted from my shoulders.

I know jobs these days are hard to come by, but there are times when an opportunity comes, and you have to take it.  I even felt a little guilty for leaving my boss, but I got over it.  Sometime in life you have to just go for it and take that leap of faith.  Yes it may be scarey, yes your cash flow will change, but you have to make a game plan.

I wanted to find a way to earn money doing what I love, while using my photography skills at the same time.  Now I’m selling on Amazon and Ebay, taking great pictures for my products and giving back on both platforms… I love it.

If any of you feel stuck and you have a passion you want persue, I recommend reading the book titled  “Turn Your Passion Into Profit” by Walt F. J. Goodridge.  He gives action steps for turning your passion into an actual business.

Conquer the fear by taking action, make that first step.
