3 Things You Must Have In Order To Profit From Your Hobby

Aug 17, 2007
Did you know that over 70% of people who responded to a recent survey said that they were thinking about starting a business of some sort? The problem for many of them was that they didn't really know where to start and how to take their dream and turn it into something tangible.

Here we'll look at 3 things that you absolutely need if you are to have any chance of profiting from your hobby.

#1 - A Positive Attitude

By far your biggest asset in turning your favorite hobby into a thriving business is a positive attitude. I think it was Harry F. Banks who said, "Attitude determines your altitude". If you are going to pursue your dream and make it a reality, you must have a positive attitude and the willingness to commit to what it takes to make it happen.

So many people start out on the road to turning their hobby into a business, and then at the first sign of an obstacle, they give up, often just before they start to see results. A positive attitude will help you to break through the barriers and temporary setbacks and reach your desired goal.

#2 - The Determination To Succeed

Many people who fall in love with the idea of turning their hobby into a business are looking for an easy way out and at the first problem, they give up and let circumstances crush their dreams. By developing a fierce determination to succeed, your chances of creating a profitable business are infinitely higher and you are virtually setting yourself up for success.

While there are not guarantees that you will eventually make it, having the determination to push on regardless of minor problems and find solutions is the mark of a true winner. Determination and a positive attitude can work together to help a dedicated person succeed where others might have failed

#3 - A Proven System

The final and some would say most important thing you'll need is a proven system for marketing your products and/or services. You need a step by step process that you can follow to ensure your success; something that other's have used successfully to achieve the same goal you have.

It's no use having an incredibly positive attitude and loads of determination if you choose a system that's flawed and never had a chance of working in the first place. Look for proof that other people have followed any system you are considering and become successful with it.

Don't ever take the promoter's word that it will work for you...demand unquestionable PROOF that many people, from all walks of life, have been able to use what he is offering to turn their hobby or passion into a profitable business.

When it comes to the system, results are the only thing that matters...if the only testimonials are from the promoter's friends and 'the usual suspects' who recommend every new program going for each other, walk away and look for something that real, ordinally people have used to succeed.

It's the only way to make sure you are really starting off on the right foot...
