Among the social networks and life coaches,mom bloggers you will read about turning your passion into a business. I’ve searched and searched my brain for that “passion” and wondered how will I know when I find it. I’ve been dead set on my Non-Profit Org. for the youth. I’ve always had that need and want to help, so I made it my goal and thought it was my passion. So a few nights ago searching the web as usual and I came across SheOwnsit.com which is a awesome site! So there is an article there “5 tips to get unstuck” and after reading that and mediating on finding that passion that everyone seems to have but me.
I was mentally floored when my thoughts took me back to 2010 and how I spent long days and nights putting together a business plan and portfolio for a cooking class business. I love to cook!! and I became discouraged when things didn’t come together like I wanted. Im a sucker for getting excited about something and with a blink of an eye I’m done when it doesn’t take off. Thats a terrible habit to have and reading that article gave me chills and reminded me of the drive I had for that project. The joy I felt when I was working toward something that meant so much to me. So my passion came back for me, well it never really left it was me that abandoned it.
My love for cooking and wanting to help kids will go hand and hand. So in the corner of the closet I went and pulled out all the brochures and menus etc I created and tears of joy came over me. How could my passion be so close and me miss it? I came to the conclusion that at that point in time when I wanted to take that business on it wasn’t the right time. I’ve grown and my drive is so much stronger, everything is so different and I’m ready. I’ve connected with some of the most successful women online and Im learning to be patient and constant.
