“They Told Me To Follow My Passion!” - Poor man cries



I fell for this…

Now I’m warning you about it.

It’s a stupid idea that gets preached like an infallible truth.

If you follow it, just remember, I told ya so.

I’m talking about following your passion.

Sure it sounds fun.

But what if your passion is painting nature scenes? Should you really go ALL IN on making money with it?

Sure… but you’ll likely end up broke. For a LONG time.

Here’s what to do instead.

Go get your money by bringing your passionate energy to something that sells…

And then do what the fuck you want.

Tom Campion, founder of Zumiez, was asked:

"Did you ever skateboard or have a passion for skateboarding?"

His reply?

"No, but shit sells. And business is about shit that sells."

So many entrepreneurs will struggle forever because they stick to an idea or offer that they’re passionate about but nobody ever buys.

The key is to be able to find REAL solutions that people are willing to pay for.

Then sell the shit out of it by bringing YOUR passionate energy to it.

Hell, you also get passionate about anything you're good at. It’s a funny thing that happens.

Then before you know it you’ll have the freedom to do whatever the fuck you want.

Can you do your passion while you’re growing?

Sure. Paint at night if you want.

There are ways to do it.

But get your bag first.

And that happens when you’re a passionate entrepreneur.

Bring your passion to whatever you do…

Then you’ll have the freedom to do what you want.
