Why Do You Do What You Do?
Have you ever wondered, why you do what you do? Some people work a job because they have bills to pay. Maybe you have a family to feed, or a pet to care for. There can be any number of reasons that you decide to do whatever it is that you do on a regular basis. What is your passion? Maybe you are wondering how do I find my passion in life? There are a lot of people who work a job they hate, just so they can care for the people they love. It’s extremely honorable to provide for your family’s financial future and no matter what job you have you should be proud of that. However, what if you could do something you love and earn what you need in order to provide for the people you care about? In 2005, I started looking for ways to earn money on the internet. My hope has been to find an online opportunity where I can earn a living from anywhere in the world. My passion is ministry. I love preaching God’s word and ministering to God’s people. Specifically, I love to minister to the people of Africa. I have done some missionary work in Africa and look forward to doing a lot more. In order to fulfill this it will take a lot of money. While my trust and hope is founded securely on Christ Jesus and God’s ability to provide all I need, I also believe in working for a living. Ministry itself is work and many ministers earn a living that way and that’s fantastic. For me, I’m looking to earn money working online that I can fund my ministry along with the support of others. The journey has been long and I have found many opportunities. Some of which have brought me some success. Many however, have been utter failures. However, I’m grateful for the failures. If I had never failed, I would not have learned the things that don’t work. I once heard it said you should try to fail as quickly as possible. That way you know what not to do. Well, I’ve been at this for 13 years, so I’m not sure I failed quickly, but I did fail. I’ve learned to quickly tell if something is a scam or a legitimate opportunity.
My Story – How I Got Started
Over the years I’ve made some money working from home. As a matter of fact, there were about 2 years that my income was almost completely earned from the work I did online! However, with most opportunities the money came fast and it also left fast. As soon as I found something that was working great, there was a change made and it would no longer produce. So I had to move on to something else. It seemed I had to find a way to be a step ahead of the changes instituted by Google or Craigslist or some other online service that I was using to market my products. After many years of success and failure I have found a system that I believe to have the longevity that I am looking for. It’s something that will take some time to establish, but once I do, it will produce for many years to come. The best part is that I can market something that I’m passionate about! I don’t have to do something I hate.
Recipe For Success – 3 Simple Ingredients
Much like any other work one would perform, there is a certain “recipe” for success when working online. I like to compare it to baking a cake or any other dish your Grandma used to make. You may have all the right ingredients, but somehow, once it is completed, it’s not quite the same as Grandmas. Some would say Grandma had the missing ingredient; love. While all Grandmas do love their Grandkids and families, they also love cooking for them. When you are doing something you love for the people you love the results are much more successful. There is one other “ingredient” Grandma has; EXPERIENCE. I’m sure the first time your Grandma made her favorite dish it was not as successful as the last time she made it. Over the years she may have used the same ingredients but she learned new techniques and perhaps different measurements until she perfected her dish. Now, as a Grandmother she can make her dish from scratch, using little or no measuring devices. She simply looks at the mixture and by sight, smell and texture she can tell what to add next and how to make the dish perfectly. You may not be able to make the same dish as perfectly as Grandma, but if she is helping you she can tell you what adjustments you need to make in order for the dish to be better next time. The same is true of internet marketing. There is a recipe for success online. There are ingredients that you need and there are techniques necessary to bring it all together. In order to create the perfect result you will need some motivation. Just like Grandma was motivated by her love for family and love for cooking, you can use the ideas that you love in order to find your motivation. If you have the passion and motivation to make it happen the recipe is quite simple. The ingredients for successful online marketing are:
- A Website
- Traffic To that Website
- A method to convert that traffic into income
The Missing Ingredient – Passion
With the proper recipe you can create your own website, drive traffic to it and convert that traffic to cash. I have found the that very recipe. Over the years I have searched for the best opportunities and I found a company called Wealthy Affiliate. The founders of wealthy affiliate have proven success in the online world. They have a recipe that works every time. Just like Grandma, they have the experience to know what adjustments to make so that your business can be successful. The best part is they offer all that plus a huge network of entrepreneurs to every member. I now use their recipe in order to market the things I love. For me, my passion is ministry. I love to help others. First and foremost I love to preach the gospel. However, I also love to help others earn a living working from home and earn money for the ministry while doing it. This website I built is dedicated to helping you find ways to earn a living sharing the very things that you are passionate about. If you have the passion as a motivator all the other ingredients are available. Also, you will gain the experience, and Carson and Kyle will be there to help you. There are many entrepreneurs who will also assist you. You also have me. I will personally answer any questions you have and help you any way I can so you can be successful making a living online. I believe everyone should have a source of income that is not dependent on the economy or one particular organization. If you like your job you can still continue doing that while you are earning money from the internet as well. In doing so you will recession – proof your life!
