Many times we don’t follow our hearts when we decide to start a business. This blog will give you some insight on how to follow your heart, and make money at the same time.
An article from usatoday.com highlights key strategies and important factors to ensure you are using your heart to guide your business planning. What intrigues you? When planning, make sure you pick a business that you are interested in. The article warns to be careful not to take a hobby you love and ruin it by making it your business. You want something you are passionate about, but at the same time, you don’t want to lose your passion for what you love. Take fitness instructors, for example. Many fitness instructors begin with a passion for working out, but burn out quickly in the personal training industry due to many different factors. Now, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t become a personal trainer, but it DOES mean you have to find what’s right for you AND make it work.
Next, you have to figure yourself out. What’s your personality? Do you work well with others? Are you up early? Go to bed late? Have kids? All of these questions matter when it comes down to figuring out how to make money AND follow your heart. Use this list of questions and strategies from the Wall Street Journal to find out more about your entrepreneurial self. Remember that you do not have to reinvent the wheel in any way, you just have to have an idea and be ready to invest.Posted: Tue May 9th 2017 5:50am 4 years ago
