Turning your passion into a business: 7 steps to getting started

Have you turned your passion into a business? If not, have you ever considered it? having your passion as a business is a wonderful thing – anyone can start a business, but sustaining it and growing it require a lot of enthusiasm and motivation. If you’re just in it for the money, you’re not going to get very far. If you’re in it because you genuinely love what you do, you’ve got a greater chance of succeeding. Sure, there’ll be ups and downs along the way, but you’ll remain determined because you’re doing what you love.

There’s no guarantee that your business will succeed, of course, but it’s better to try than to never have tried at all. If you want to turn your passion into a business, ask yourself these 7 questions:

  1. What makes you unique? Think about what sets you apart from the competition and develop it further.
  2. Can you do it alone? Decide whether you can build your business up by yourself or whether you’ll need help.
  3. Are you ready to work? It can take a long time to build up a business, so you should be prepared to invest a lot of time into it.
  4. Are you going to start today? You’re not going to get anywhere if you keep putting it off.
  5. Are you online? You’ll make things very hard for yourself if you don’t have an online presence.
  6. Do people know who you are? As the brains behind the business, you should be an expert in your field and people in your community should know that.
  7. Do you reward yourself? Make yourself goals and give yourself rewards when you achieve them to keep yourself motivated.

I’ve managed to successfully turn my passion of painting beautiful landscapes into business. I realised my niche was creating scenic and calming paintings of the serene Berkshire countryside; I’ve since been able to build my brand around this vision and have continually worked to keep my dream alive.

If I can do it, you can too! So what are you waiting for? Get started today!
