Following your passion is the best medicine ;)

This is advice that I actually churned out on my own. What can I say, I have a knack for words. And this piece of wisdom does carry a lot of weight and common sense if you observe closely. A lot of us get into that 9 – 5 routine not willing to plunge into risks which could be what we’re truly passionate about. Some of us are just wired that way like me for instance. I cannot accomplish a task unless I’m truly passionate about it or it’s mandated to be done. When we engage in jobs or activities we are not passionate about, they become nothing but energy drainers. Well I say that we figure out what these energy drainers are and flush them down the toilet because if you’re interested in achieving success in life whether it’s in your professional life or personal life, then you need to participate in activities that bring out your natural abilities.

I worked as a fundraiser and as a timeshare salesman for several years and a one crucial lesson I learned was you must be passionate about what you are selling or what you are trying to raise funds for. Both activities constitute a business activity and whenever you engage in a business activity you must be passionate about it considering all of those long hours you will have to put in maintaining and growing your business. The other lesson that I learned was persistence. Sales is the lifeblood of any business so if you want an intact business at the end of the day you will have to be persistent in generating as much sales as possible!

Going back to the topic of passion. I feel that you must constantly speculate  your passion, figuring out what makes you truly happy or truly tick, and go after it with all you’re muscle. Passion is what keeps us going in this world. What’s your passion?

Blogging to market your passion, business

So it just occurred to me, as I’m establishing myself as an avid blogger on successes in business, workforce, dating, and in education, I realized that it is essential to type up your post before synthesizing a creative blog title!

Aside from composing your post as creative and über-appealing as possible to your target audience, you must captivate their attention by your title. Title is what tells all! It’s the juice that’s known to ignite the furnace! This way you can retain your target audience, whether you are blogging to market your talent, passion, wisdom, online/offline business or you’re an affiliate marketer marketing a product.

Creating your post allows you to title it based on your thoughts and the conclusion you arrived at, making it more attractive to your audience!

FYI blogs are one of your greatest resources in the twenty century in retaining customers and flourishing your business. If you’re a business owner or affiliate marketer, I’d strongly recommend creating a blog!!!

Maintain good relations!!

So this is like a reiteration of my previous blog entry about selecting your business partners!! After building rapport & trust with the individual who shares your passion, you must work to continue to build and maintain that relationship as relationships define life!

And this goes beyond sipping wine, cocktails, paying for them at a five-star restaurant, or baking them treats. While it is still part of the equation, a big chunk of it comes from tolerating their shortcomings by meeting them halfway!

In the business world, there are always secret clashing between partners on their objectives or on how they handle things. Sometimes we become so embroiled in our personal feelings regarding our business that we fail to see the bigger picture: working together to make a difference in the world! This goes way beyond generating revenue, although that’s your ultimate goal.

It can be such a pride expenditure to not execute the blueprint of an idea loaded with finesse only because your partner disagrees with it. However, if you want your business to thrive then you must be willing to meet them halfway! As once again, life is defined by relationships!
