Recently I read a great interview on JetSetCitizen.com. This is an interesting site that talks about people who are trying to create a business that will let them travel the world while still making (preferably a huge) income. Whether they intend to or not they prove just how difficult this is – on many levels. It’s not just the creating a business, but, if that’s not hard enough, a lot of people get out there and realise that they are not the type to travel the world ad infinitum or to even live in a place other than they grew up in!
People are creatures of habit. And some people – whether they want to admin it or not – like the habit they are in.
Right now you are doing what you want to
Anyway, on JetSetCitizen they have a great interview with Pat Flynn.
Now, in general, I am totally against this whole idea that you can make a fortune by doing next to nothing! All these sites – usually affiliate sites – that sell programs on how you can make easy money on the internet are really just going to tell you that best way to do it is to create some content about making money and sell it to other suckers.
But, Pat Flynn, I feel is in a different space. If you read the interview he started out by doing something he loved – creating a blog about Architecture. Also, he states:
“I believe that the more you can help others, the more successful and profitable you will be.”
So there you have it.
Pat’s a good example of following what you love AND providing a real service. I hope you can do the same!
