When your're just starting out, turning your passion into a lucritive business can be so daunting. There are so many things to do and most of them brand new to you. Learning about new online platforms, what to share, when to share it, what platforms are best, all that fun stuff that gives a majority of us the heebie geebies just thinking about teaching yourself how to do it. I'm here to tell you that you can absolutely handle this. All it takes is a little planning and a whole lot of spirit.
When it comes to turning your passion into a business it's easy to look at other folks that have been doing it for a while and think about how badly you want to be where they are. It's hard for us to make the connection that in fact they were not successful overnight but they dumped every bit of their blood, sweat, and tears into what they have today. (And guess what?! They felt exactly as you do at the moment, and if they didn't well then they are probably some sort of alien hybrid with no emotions. Cause believe me when i say that being a entrepreneur is a rollercoaster (on the side of a cliff) full of emotions.) This is not a get rich quick deal, this is a slow growth game that will fulfill you in more ways than you know. (The ol' tortoise and the hare story very much applies here.)
It's ok to work a full time job, or take side jobs while you are building this beautiful beast of a business. I have personally taken side jobs since the day I started on my paper florist adventure. When I first started I was working 10 hrs. a week as a delivery driver for a florist, working as a cleaner for a vacation rental and hitting up the occasional weeding job when it surfaced. When you love something so much and would even do it if it meant you wouldn't be getting paid, putting in those few extra hours to work towards your ultimate goal of making some buckaroos is totally worth it.
