Episode 571: Should You REALLY follow your passion?

Uncategorized Nov 14, 2022

Today, I want to have a conversation around something that is important and relevant to all entrepreneurs right now, and that is passion. What is passion, and should you really be following it? How does it differ from purpose, and where do I see online business owners getting it all wrong about passion? There are lots of opposing viewpoints on this topic, and I want to help clear it all up for you in this episode!

  • The ways that identifying as a multi-passionate entrepreneur becomes a problem when building a business
  • Why you don’t have to be passionate about what your business is about to be successful 
  • The reasons that there is validity in a business telling you not to follow your passion 
  • What it really takes to make money [and it’s not what you may think]
