If You Do What You Love, Will the Money Really Follow?

There’s an old saying that goes “if you do what you love, the money will follow.” I’m not sure who made this up, but it’s likely the cause of a lot of broken dreams for a lot of people.

After all, if you do what you love and that happens to be rock collecting or ice cliff jumping, you probably won’t be able to have the money follow. You’ll probably hear crickets chirping.

Everyone knows this and it’s the reason so many people put off following their passion; they don’t want to find out that no one cares, and no one wants to buy what they have to offer. It’s scary to put yourself out in that way, and it’s a feeling of extreme vulnerability.

It doesn’t have to be that way any more.

What if you could get complete confidence in following your passion, and know for a fact that people want what you have to offer, before you even start?

What if you had a clear road map to follow to creating a business that you love, and a community of awesome individuals to support you every step of the way?

What if you could start waking up excited about your work?

That’s what I offer in Paid to Exist.

If you think this is something that may help you, we’d love for you to join us.

It’s a late ’80′s book title by Marsha Sinetar. Not a great book, but a good title – although it would have been better said to be “Do what you love and the money won’t matter.”

Interesting approach to pondering why so many of us end up setting dreams aside.

It seems when money “drives a venture” it eventually produces unhappy, stilted, greedy, narrow minded attitudes. Contrast that with a venture driven with passion and you usually see excited creativity, happy, out-reaching, helpful, life embracing attitudes.

The main reason why people settle then chase their dreams. All the risks and fears is too much to handle. Believe in yourself and grasp what you desire.

Actually I managed to turn something I absolutely love to do into an opportunity to make a living. If *giving* something of *value* is actually part of what you love to do, money will indeed follow as a compensation from those who feel you gave something. Those who master the art of giving can be can confirm that it’s not hard to start loving it, no matter what it is!

What you love to do is creating something that people will pay for, then money will follow.
