Do What You Love, and it’s the PLAN that follows

        Do What You Love, Plan, Execute, then the Money Will Follow

I’m biting off a pretty big piece of meat here.  It’s a very involved subject.  I think a whole book could be written about it, but, we’re just gonna keep it short.  I’ll also keep it geared towards our industry, however, it’s implications are far and wide.

People love to say do what you love and the money will followI think the statement is incomplete, confusing, and misleading.  It should be Do What You Love, Plan, Execute, then the Money Follows.

LOVE

Let’s take the example that you love playing the guitar.  First, you need to master what you love.  Not all people that practice very hard at the guitar will become virtuoso’s.  I do believe with a lot of practice that most of us will become really good guitar players.  Just as I believe that with practice, many of us can become really good at an online specialty(business).

PLAN

   Being pretty good at something is where business takes over.  Now how many connections do you have for the business.  Who do you know?  Do you understand that you have to go out and meet like minded people.  You need to go out and find a band just like you need to find a supportive group for your online business.  So go network, your business will thank you for it.

Next, you have to market yourself.  You have to promote.  In the beginning nobody knows about you.  This is why everyone is in selling whether they like it or not.  People buy you the guitar player or support You and Your online specialty.

DO

This is the take action part of the formula.  The journey of 10,000 miles starts with one step.  Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.  Everybody makes them.  Execute your plan.  A great quote I read “Vision without Execution is Delusion”- Author Unknown  So get out there and start your business!

Taking this to our industry of traffic exchanges etc.  What do you love about it?  Do you love collecting Hot Bucks? Then how can you bring value to others to share in your passion?  Maybe you want to collect email addresses and tell them where the best places are to find them. Maybe you will explain the different kinds and the leader board contest. Perhaps you love traffic exchanges so much you want to start your own. If so read all about our journey here.

So you see there is a little more to it than just do what you love.

It should be Do What You Love, Plan, Execute, then the Money Follows.

    Hi Marcus I totally agree that you need to do more than love what you do and the money follows. Excellent post about how we also need to plan and execute. Unfortunately nothing is really easy to do such as owning an online business and becoming successful. It takes allot of time and we do make mistakes on the journey. But that is how we learn and it’s OK to make mistakes. No one is perfect. I have read the most successful people were unsuccessful along the way. Why? Because they made mistakes and learned from them. 🙂
