Have you ever wanted to get paid for doing what you love? I know, I know, silly question, of course you do!
Even if you don’t believe it just yet, you can make money out almost anything that you love doing. But there are so many reasons why people don’t press ahead. We all plant these limiting ideas in our heads: I don’t have time, I don’t have the right skill set, I don’t have the money, the economy is not good right now… so, how do you over come this?
Start think about where the opportunities lie. As an example there are going to be millions more people coming on line over the next few years and people are yearning for new information. People are looking for wisdom and knowledge; you could offer huge value your chosen field. You've got the ability to share your story with people in a way that helps them connect with you. Millions of people are looking to improve their life and go to the next level.
If you're an employee think about how can you add more value. How can you contribute more ideas, mentor more people, learn more, grow your network and take care of other people in your workplace? Check in and be realistic, are you in the right place to build your career.
Trust in your own voice. And get serious about what you're going to offer the world. Here are 5 ways to help you get started:
1. Claim your topic and your expertise
What would you like to impart to the world? You’ve got this far in the world so it's likely that you have been through your fair share of trails and tribulations. And I’m sure if you're determined to earn more and change your life, you’ve tried a few different things and you’ve had struggles. Look back and see what you’ve learnt.
People become influencers because they own it. Even experts have to start somewhere so research, research and research some more.
2. Teach weekly and post out your content consistently
Start a blog, or post a video every week. And then post little clips and quotes, drawing people back to that blog. You can put the content of you blog out to your audience for the remainder of the week. You’ll soon have a library of exciting topics that you’ve covered.
3. Get in your customers head
Get to know you customer intimately, yes intimately! Know what it will take for your people to double their revenues and grow their brand. And go above and beyond don’t just solve their problem… solve their problem and then double it. Just solving the problem isn't enough. You’re teaching aspirations. Think about their future and where they want to go. This is just as applicable wether you are running your own business and/or if you are an employee.
4. Create your offer or solution
Get into the detail of what is happening in the market place and how what is/is not working. Really understand how you fit into the market place and how you can provide the most value. You undoubtably have something truly unique to offer, so think outside the box about tailored solutions, it’s not the generic solution that is going to get you noticed.
5. Value yourself
Recognise that you’ve got something worth putting out into the world; it’s your job to get some support and get started! Where is your hunger and your passion? Even the biggest stars had to start somewhere; never let your small beginnings become small minded.
