What is lifestyle? What does it mean to you?
If you ask a hundred people what lifestyle means to them, I am sure you will get a hundred different responses. Back in the 90's I lived in a small town in the north island of New Zealand with my family on what was called a lifestyle block. That was a two and a half acre block of land with our home on it. We had a few sheep and I tendered to our large vegetable gardens. I was running my career business and at the time I enjoyed that lifestyle. It was a great place to bring up our kids and they also enjoyed the extra big back yard.
In order to successfully build a profitable passion project, we need to take a step back and check our resume. But we aren't applying for a job are we.....no we aren't, but the process of self exploration is similar to what an employer would do if they were to hire you for a position.
What would an employer wish to know about the person they are about to hire? These are the areas we need to personally work on if we are to successfully build a profitable passion project or lifestyle business.
I'm guessing that some visitors to this website may be asking, what exactly is a profitable passion project?
The profitable passion project may evolve from an interest or hobby. They are almost always started as a part-time or sideline project but often develop into something bigger. Passion projects are often started on a shoestring budget. They are developed from start-ups and generally managed by their owner and maybe a few staff or contractors.
Where do we find our business idea?
It's time to start thinking and acting like an entrepreneur. Do you remember that inquisitive, sometimes annoying child who wouldn't stop asking questions about things, no matter where they were?
Well, it's your turn to be that inquisitive person, not necessarily vocalizing all your questions but certainly internalizing your thoughts and questions and making notes in that small notebook or diary you carry with you every day.
