6 Step Process to Pursuing Your Passion

journeypic

Now that I am retired at 55, I want to take some time with my family, go on a nice vacation, and come back to create my own business.  I want to share this journey, so I can help other women, just like me.

There are so many of us, who are retired, with skills, dreams and talents, but we don’t know what the first step should be. Figuring out how to bring these ideas to the surface, then turning this idea into a business, and making it profitable.

For me, I would love to work from home and use my photography skills in that business.  So I did my research and found this ebook on Pursuing Your Passion.  I liked it so much, I bought the rights to share this ebook with you.

 

It gives 6 Steps in Pursuing Your Passion:

1. Find Your Passion

2. Find Your Passion’s Skill Set

3. Monetize Your Passion

4. Productize Your Passion

5. Scale Your Passion

6. Live Your Passion with Intention

 

Of course, I want you to grab the free ebook for the details.

I used it myself to create a visual process for a product idea that I got in college.  Now I can turn this idea into an actual product and grow into a profitable business.

Come with me as I document this journey, you might start a journey of your own.

I Quit

retired 
 
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.

  1. Get clear about what you want and why (Time to take a breath and focus)
