3 Things You Must Have In Order To
Profit From Your Hobby
by Rockford Malcolm Tapscott
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
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 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.
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�
