We all want to turn our passion into a business don’t we? We want to spend our days doing things we love, being creative and challenged and inspired, right? But how do you, ya know, do that? Betty Fetter did it and today she’s telling us how.
Here’s how you, too, can turn your passion into a business
Identify your passion
Once you have a good sense of what you want to do, look at your options. Do you want to start your own business? Will it be a home-based business, a storefront, or an internet business? Is there a franchise available?
Identify your strengths and weaknesses
No one is good at everything, and even if you are, there aren’t enough hours in a day to get it all done. Build a team and delegate to your weaknesses.
Execution, execution, execution
No matter how passionate you are, how talented, or how many great ideas you have, success is in the execution. You will need to implement processes, set goals, and be responsible for results.
Allow the vision to evolve and expand
As you’re building the business, stay true to your original intent. Don’t allow yourself to get distracted, scattered, or off-plan. But when the time is right (and it’s all about timing), allow your vision and business to expand in ways that stay true to your mission.
It was never part of my original plan, but after thirteen years, my kids were older and I was ready for a new kind of challenge, so I franchised my art school. Now, there are people like me running home-based businesses all across the US and Canada, as well as internationally.
