But for those who don’t know their passion, you may be asking how does one go about doing this?
I know it may seem daunting because it definitely was for me. Before starting my own business, I had no idea what I wanted to do. So what did I do?
I overlooked my life and identified what made me happy and brought me joy to do. What would you do, happily, every day of your life if you weren’t paid for it? What ever the answer is, that is your passion.
For myself, I realized that my passion was helping others in any area that I had a deep interest for. I found that when I helped in these areas it brought me great joy! I would do all these extra things- researching information, filling out forms, etc- for free! This is was my passion and I could do this for hours on end. Add to this that I could do this as an online entrepreneur; I was all in!
