Passion

Change Now And Change Often

As I go through the journey of life, I’ve learned a lot of lessons. One of my most recent lesson is that change is good and it is ALWAYS for the better. Maybe not the near future, but eventually you’ll look back and see it as a good change.

Let me just tell you a little story about how I learned this lesson.

Changed was forced upon me a little while ago when I was let go from my day job. Previous to that, all I was thinking about was 1 thing. That one thing was turning this blog into a full-time gig.

At the time, I wanted to do this because I was tired of what I was doing in my day job and I wanted more in life. So as I said before, I wanted to change this blog from personal finance to personal passion. I wanted to help people find their passion and learn to make a living from it.

I’ve broken away from wanting to teach people how to budget, to teaching people how to fish (metaphorically speaking).

So that change was for the better because it’s something I’ve decided I’m more passionate about.

Then I was let go from my job, which was an unexpected change, but once again a change none the less.

From that change my ultimate goal is to not work a 9-5 again. Yes it’s not something I have a lot of support on and it does stress my fiancé out a little bit. But this is something I want for my life and I know I can do it.

The whole time I’ve been working on this blog, I’ve been learning new things about creating and designing website, how to get them to #1 in Google, and making money off of them. That’s my passion now. I love this stuff, and I’m getting really good at it.

Just recently I’ve entered a whole new world of SEO(Search Engine Optimization) and I love every minute of it. I’ve delved deep and I’ve changed my outlook on this blog.

Financially Poor isn’t going to be my money maker, or my full time job. It’s going to be where I let out my passion. As my passions change, so shall Financially Poor.

My money makers are going to be a  bunch of blogs that aren’t going to have any relationships what so ever, that make me money with only a little maintenance. But I love making them and they’re going to make me money so that I can do more of what I want.

A few weeks ago, I decided to start a coaching program because I was desperate for money since I just lost my job. But Just recently I’ve realized that I don’t want to coach people to find their passion.

So I’ve canceled that and I’ve changed my focus of coaching on helping people get into creating a website and making money from it. I’m a better technical person than a motivator. I know how to do stuff and get it done. I don’t know how to get you motivated to do it other than pointing a gun at your head. So now I’m an SEO/Website creating/Money making coach, Hire Me :)

Is Financially Poor going to be another making money on the internet blog?

Yes and no. I’m not going to regurgitate the same stuff that you can find on the other blogs. Everything I post here is going to be from my experience and isn’t going to be about “how to make a post go viral” and stuff like that. That can be read anywhere and I hate having 20 posts in my feed reader about how to do that.

I’m going to talk about stuff without the hype. I’ve never been good with hype and it’s not really my passion, so I’ll leave that on the sideline.

Is Financially Poor going to be all about making money?

No, it’s going to be about doing what you want in life…and making money.

How often am I going to post?

I’m going to go for Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sat, With Mon and Friday being new posts from me, Wed being a guest post, and sat being my Kick-Ass Reads. There will be posts in between every now and then but not on a schedule.

It’s not being lazy to do what you want, it’s being happy. Like I’ve said many times before, life is too short to not be happy.

Do what you want and do it now. Eventually you’ll be doing it anyway (retirement), so why wait? You’ll have less time and energy to realize your passion and enjoy it when you’re old. And if you are old now, there’s no better time to start because by the time you’ll be ready again, you’ll probably be dead.

I did kinda forget to tie everything into the title, but my point is that your passion will change as you explore your current passion. So you will Change Now and you will Change often

So stay up to date with all of my knowledge and passion by subscribing by RSS or Email. I’ve already started spreading my knowledge of “building websites to spread your passion and make money” in my free Do What You Want eCourse. Be sure to sign up for that and start becoming a Free Bird.

And if you want coaching about how to Start up, Make better, Make more, or anything else about a website(s)/SEO, just shoot me an email in the contact me section and we’ll see if we can work something out. I never hold back.

So I hope you enjoy what Financially Poor is going to bring you and I hope you learn a lot.

Always remember to Live Your Passion

Passion

You Have More Power Than You Think

You have more power

Knowledge = Power

It’s an old saying that will always hold true. You hold power over people by keeping them out of the loop and not allowing them to get educated.

Well my financial freedom seeker, you are educated and you have more knowledge than you think you do.

You may not be a genius about spaceships, but if a spaceship builder tried to  paint, write a poem, run a business, clean or paint a house, cut hair, invest in the stock market, or even sell something on eBay, or whatever your passion is; They couldn’t do it as well as you. Why? Because they haven’t done it as long as you or care about it enough to try and be as good as you. Just like you don’t care enough or have the passion to build spaceships.

That’s what it’s all about…passion. If you have passion about something you will soak up as much knowledge as you can and become the best at it, because you love it.

Spaceship builders love building spaceships, you love your passion, therefore you 2 are equally geniuses.

True?

Damn right it’s true.

dumbest-person-in-who-wants-to-be-a-millionaire This is a fake image….but it still helps my point

Her passion isn’t large things so obviously this isn’t her forte. So if you have a passion for elephants, the moon, or large things, then you could help teach her a thing or 2.

The point is that you know something she doesn’t and I’m sure she knows something that you don’t.

You can help each other if you decide that you want to know what the other person know.

So let’s find out what power that gives you:

  • You can charge her for your knowledge
  • You can give your knowledge to her
  • You can keep her from knowing

All of the options are possible but the first 2 are going to allow you to Live Your Passion.

Giving away some knowledge and making money off of more detailed knowledge will allow you to Do What You Want and have a lot of power.

Everyone knows something that other people don’t.

EVERYONE!

No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

You do. And it may be as simple as how to make a baby quite, or how to juice an orange.

There are people out there that don’t know how and are beginning to learn those things.

So who’s going to teach them?

You!

The world needs to know what you know. So leverage it for your benefit as well. That way everyone wins.

They get knowledge and power and you can Do What You Want and make a living, but you will always have more power because you started before them. So in fact you have more power than you did keeping it for yourself because now they look to you for help instead of someone else.

So, like I said, you have more power than you think.

Use it wisely.

What do you have power in? Let me know in the comments and then maybe someone will want some of your power.

Tweet this post or Facebook share it to let others know that they have the power!!
