Have Your Heart In It

Blog About What You Love

You’ve Heard It — “Do What You Love And The Money Will Follow.”

Well? — Charlie’s got a slightly different take on it that I think you’ll like:

That’s true and not true at the same time.

For example, if what you really love is watching reruns of Friends, and that is all you do, it’s going to be hard for you to get ahead financially.

So, effective today, I’m making up a new phrase to replace the old phrase.

Ready?

I’m going from “do what you love and the money will follow” to …

“Blog about what you love and the money will follow”

.

Blog About What You Love

.

You see, I’m 100% convinced, based on many years of experience, that anyone can make a living with the topic that moves them most.

I believe this because I’ve lived it, and seen it happen hundreds of times.

From watching television to helping cure low thyroid disorder, I’ve seen people follow their hearts and find their living.

When I say these things to people they often ask how it’s done. They are, understandably, skeptical. After all, it sounds little too good to be true, right?

Fair question, especially considering that there is more than enough information about what we “should” do but precious little about how to do what needs doing.

So let me share today a five step formula, a blueprint really, for following your passion, and finding your life (and living) when you do.

Step 1 – Create a blog about your passion

Yes I know, everyone says you need a blog. Just like everyone says you need a mailing list of your own. We all get tired of hearing it.

Funny thing is, both of these cliches are right.

You really do need a list of your own.

And yes, you really do need a blog of your own.

Why?

Because you need a home base.

  • You need a place to point to when someone says “what do you do?”
  • You need a place to connect with others who are passionate about what you are passionate about.
  • A place to create a sense of community.

And, commercially, a place to build a list so you can sell things.

Here is something I believe with all my heart …

There is no separation between art and business when both are done well.

There is no conflict between serving readers and visitors to your site and asking them to buy something from you when you truly believe in what you promote.

There is no ethical disconnect between loving and serving your readers and hoping they will buy the products you recommend because they know and trust you.

Following your passion is good business. It’s good for your soul. It’s good for your pocketbook.

It’s just good all the way around.

Now for step 2 …

Step 2 – Create the best content you can

I can hear some of you saying “but I can’t write!”. Not to worry. Being able to “write well” is not necessary.

Let me ask you this —

  • Can you talk?
  • Can you relate stories that happened to you or to those you know?
  • Can you share with a friend why you loved a movie?
  • Can you teach anyone to do anything, including tying a shoe?

If you answered yes to any of these questions you have the seeds of being a great producer of content.

You just need to practice the skills.

Here are a few tips to help you along the way.

  • Write like you speak. Forget the rules and just put it on paper like you would say it to your best friend.
  • Speak your content if you don’t want to write. Then have it transcribed into articles.
  • Tell stories every time you can. People love stories.
  • Share your heart, experience and wisdom. Just be you.

I believe with all my heart that everyone reading this has value to add to the lives of others.

We just need a framework for getting all that good stuff out of your head and into the world so others can learn from your experience.

Step 3 – Curate the best thinking of others in your area of passion

There has never been a time in history when it was easier to make money online than today. I know that statement might raise a few eyebrows.

I know too that many of you have struggled to make it online.

But I still believe this …

There has never been a time in history when it was easier to make money online than today.

Why do I believe that?
