By that I mean, find out what it is that you like to do in this world (golf? personal finance? knitting?) and parlay that into a business.
Here’s somebody who turned a passion (and talent) for jewellery made from twisting little silver-plated wires into a $600k+ p.a. online business that teaches others how to do the same!
That’s why I recommend that you start today …
… whether you have any idea what/how to start your business or not, start by writing a blog.
It can tell others how to do whatever it is that you do (if you are already an expert), chronicle your own journey to ‘expertness’ (great way to get started, even if you don’t know much about your passion at all), or it can simply be a collection / review of others who are experts.
Down the track, you’ll have enough randomized blog entries to create some of your own information products … all neatly reviewed, scrubbed, and honed with the volunteer assistance of your readership.
What do you think I’ve been doing with this blog all of this time? 😉
Seriously, if you think this is hard, check out this story of a 9 y.o. who decided to (successfully, I believe) help pay for his own heart operation by writing/selling an e-book:
Inspirational, true story even without the business/money lesson that I had to wrap around it!
