The Things We Love

I almost forgot I promised a second blog post today. I am posting a reprint with a bit of touch-up. It had errors. Errors I made as a newbie to blogging, but the meaning is still there.

January 4, 2017

I saw a quote that said, “Start doing the things you love.” I don’t know who it is by, but I thought about it. I have often heard it said that if you do the thing you love or have a strong passion for, the money will follow.

Well, my passion is reading romance novels. I have enough romance books to make a store envious. The trouble is, I have yet to learn how to make money from that passion.

Fortunately for me, I also love giving speeches and writing. How about you? Do you have something you feel very passionate about? Have you considered how you could turn it into a career or business for yourself?

Think about what you enjoy and are good at and consider making a career change. Not overnight. You must create a market for your service or product. You must promote it and get others interested and a hundred other things that will require your attention, but what a journey! The reward of having your own business is that you can make a living for yourself. Wow!

While I will not write the books I love to read, I will continue to read them, give speeches, and write on my blog. I love doing these two things almost as much as I do reading.

Until next time, stay safe, and keep the faith.
