Ah, those dreams of being able to monetise your passion…
Perhaps you’ve switched projects a few times & it’s not quite brought in the cash you would have liked? You’ve gone back to the drawing board. You’re frustrated that you’re not quite making the money despite the huge effort you’ve put in. And it even makes you want to give up at times?
If this resonates with you then you’re not alone and there are 6 simple steps you can use to overcome this:
1. Discover your values
What’s most important to you in your life? What is your purpose, destiny, unique contribution and where your passion and profession merge? Discover it.
2. Honour your values & master your niche
Live your values & fulfill them to become the very best [you can be] in your niche.
3. Check the marketplace
There are niches of niches and micro-niches so its likely you can moneitse yours. But test the market first to ensure there is demand for your passion/profession merge, before scaling up. Tweak it accordingly. [examples of very random highly niched markets that people have successfully scaled/succeeded]
4. Serve & solve
Find a way to serve as many people as you can through your niche through solving problems. What void in yourself and others do you want to fill? Serving as many people as you can through this.
5. Be unique & relevant
You are unique, so serve & solve through your niche with uniqueness, care & clarity of positioning.
6. Keep evolving, disrupting & improving
Learn, test, tweak, review. Grow, disrupt and keep solving bigger problems. BUT DO NOT chop & change your niche too often, stay true to your values and vision.
I like to learn from the hard challenges in life and find the upside in them and leverage them for progress, success, happiness, fulfilment and money. It goes without saying that 2020 was a brutal year but as business owners and as entrepreneurs there have been valuable lessons learned that you can take into 2021 to improve your business and to scale your brand.
I am passionate about helping as many young & underprivileged start & scale meaningful businesses that change the world and I want to help as many entrepreneurs start & scale their business & get a better financial education.
