As I write on Acuff.me
about dreaming and pursuing passions I haven’t made it a big secret that I have a full time job and also am building up a coaching and consulting business. I’m excited about a new project I just started working on and was recently telling a mentor of mine about it.
One of his first questions was, “How are you going to make money from this?”
It almost caught me off guard. We were talking about business, and he asked me a very logical and practical business question, and I didn’t have an answer.
If I had to classify this project I’d put it in my dream category. It’s what I love to do. I love helping people and small businesses put their financial situation in a position that they can chase after dreams and go win. I’ve been in the trenches for years now, getting first hand knowledge of how to do this and I’ve found that I love teaching other people how to do this stuff.
So it’s my passion. It’s my dream. And apparently I’m supposed to find a way to monetize it.
But what if you can’t monetize your dream?
