How do I make money by following my passion?

If you’ve been asking that question for the past 20 years, you’ll be happy to know that someone has finally answered it. Gary Vaynerchuk has written a book to teach us how to make money by following our bliss.

“If you’re living your passion, you’re going to want to be consumed by your work. The passion and love for what you do will enable you to work the hours necessary to succeed,” Vaynerchuk said.

Crush It! will give you the techniques you need to establish your expertise using social media. Vaynerchuk calls it “building your personal brand.” Here are the techniques in a nutshell:

  1. Identify your passion.
  2. Learn as much about it as you can.
  3. Start blogging about it.
  4. Find other blogs about it and leave comments.
  5. Find Facebook pages about your passion, become a friend/fan and contribute.
  6. Search Twitter to find other passionate people and talk to them.
  7. Repeat steps 2 through 6 over and over and over.

And why is now the time to do it?

Because social media, new advertising venues, and the Internet have made it possible for you to find other people who share your passion and might even pay you for your knowledge. If you can establish yourself as an expert, people who need your expertise will seek you out.
