The following is an excerpt from the book Get Paid For Who You Are.
Don’t just take my word for it. there’s an internet website called www.killerstart-ups.com that reviews fifteen new internet start-ups every single working day. That’s about 4,000 start- ups every year — just the ones this site reviews — with subjects ranging from financial investments to resources for educators to evaluating tv shows to culinary tips.
The prospects are as limitless as the number of hobbies and interests you can think up. One website, www.itsthoughtful.com is all about a community of people who want to get ideas for gifts that matter to those they care about. Someone had to think up the idea, start researching gifts, and start connecting others who are interested in the same thing. for that matter, someone had to think of starting a website reviewing new internet start-ups!
What’s your passion, hobby, skill or experience? Can it be turned into a revenue stream for you? Yes it can, whether you like scrapbooking, deep sea diving, nifty new gadgets, lawn care, becoming a better parent, personal development, financial planning, or hiking in national parks. Whatever you like or love is something you can spend more time doing and make money while doing it!
