Can you do what you love for a living? 

This is the secret to happiness, or so we’ve been told. If you love what you do, you will never work another day in your life. Imagine that! Never having to theoretically work for the rest of your life! Ok, snap out of it. Unless you win the lottery or genetic lottery, we are going to have to put in a solid work ethic if we want to succeed.

Think about what you do for a living right now. Are you happy being an employee for someone? Do you think you can turn it into a fruitful career so you don’t waste that valuable experience everyone talks about when applying for another job?

Do you have faithful followers? Can you develop your fans organically? This is the most important question you need to ask yourself before you break out from your normal routine. You’re not going to like the process at first. How are you going to break it to your boss, your co-workers, your clients/customers that you are venturing out on your own?

One by one. If you have people that know who you are and what you do, then you can do it.
