If you're like most people, you can definitely use some extra money. After all, there are always going to be unexpected expenses that pop up, and there's always going to be something out there that you're going to want to splurge on.
But if you're like most people, you probably don't know how to get your hands on some extra cash. After all, your job only pays so much. So, what do you do?
You turn your passions into profits!
Sounds like the beginning of a cheesy infomercial, right? However, it IS possible to make some extra money by doing things you love. In fact, when you're doing something you love, it's easier to attract customers. After all, passion is contagious!
So, how do you get the ball rolling?
Start by thinking about what makes you smile. Make a list of everything you love to do. Maybe you love dancing, taking pictures, baking cookies, or making soap. Don't think about creating a business just yet. Instead, write down anything that pops into your mind.
Once you've got a list, brainstorm ways that you can turn the things on it into a product or service. For example, if you love taking pictures, you could upload them onto a micro stock site like BigStockPhotos and make money every time someone downloads them. Or, if you love making soap, you could sell your creations on eBay.
You could even turn your passions into a book. For example, if you love to climb mountains, write a how-to book for beginners and sell it on Kindle. Or, take all of those cookie recipes you've created over the years and turn them into a Kindle cookbook.
Now that you've got some moneymaking ideas, think about what it would take to actually carry them out. For example, would you have to spend a bunch of money upfront? Would you need some kind of special equipment or license? Do you have any connections that would make profiting off of one idea easier than the others? Does one idea require a whole lot more free time?
It may take you a few days to sort through all of the ideas you've come up with, but that's OK. By the time all is said and done, you'll have a list of bonafide moneymakers. Once you've compared them all, choose the one that excites you the most, and start working on it. As long as you've come up with a solid plan ahead of time, it won't be long before you've turned your passion into profits!
Profits that, if you so choose, can be turned into regular income. In his book The Personal Power Course, Wallace D. Wattles wrote:
"Even though you are making money, you are not successful so long as you are doing something you do not like to do, and not doing the thing you want to do. The man who feels that he is misplaced is neither wealthy nor successful. Perhaps the most essential part of wealth-culture consists in finding the place where you will be happy in your work. If you are not happy in your work, you are a slave."
