Turn Your Passion into Profit

Everyone
has a skill or talent that they can you as a way to earn money. It’s
just the way God made every creature—with an innate ability to ensure
their own survival. All you need is a few lessons, the right motivation
and the Mocha Manual to Turning Your Passion into Profit. Then, you can
do the same.

You
can turn your passion into profit. With the right skills and the right
motivation, every mom can turn a skill or hobby into a money-making
enterprise. But first, you need to be prepared for the real life of an
entrepreneur. It’s not all leisurely lunches and afternoons with Oprah,
you know. For you to successfully create a passion centered life you
have to:

1. Embrace the uncertainty. Learn to let go of your need to know. View life with a curiosity and adventure instead of fear and anxiety.

2. Be adaptable.
Things happen. Plans fall apart. “It’s not the strongest species that
survives, it’s not even the most intelligent, it is the one most
responsive to change,” said Charles Darwin. When circumstances change,
be it personal, financial or in your business industry, (and trust me,
they will) be willing to readjust your plan.

3. Boundless energy. 
This ain’t easy. Don’t think that entrepreneurship is a life of
leisurely lunches and sleeping in. You will likely work harder than you
ever have in your life, especially in the early days. You need energy
and devotion to make it work. Energy will help you get your business up
and running and good stamina will keep it afloat. Without endurance, no
business can succeed. 

4. Resourcefulness.
Can you make a dollar out of fifteen cents? Ever made a satisfying
dinner out of damn near nothing in the fridge?  Well, business success
also comes from drawing on all your resources, thinking outside the box
and being willing to use your know-how and network to make something
out of nothing.

5. Amazing networking skills.
Are you a natural connector? No man (or woman) is an island, especially
if she is building a business. You will need to meet others, get
customers, make industry contacts, and more to make your business grow.

6. Realize that only thing stopping you is YOU!
When you think big and dream big and follow through with sacrifice and
dogged determination there is nothing you can’t accomplish. Just get
out of your own way, put aside your insecurities and that little voice
in your head that says you can’t and go make it happen!
