Most people use their craft and sell their skills, their time in exchange for money.
But there is more you can do with your passion and two of the best ways is to create content around your passion and teach it to others.
Your passion may be design, but you may not want to get paid to design for others.
You may still use your design abilities to create content and showcase your brand and grow awareness about your work, whatever that is.
You may be a musician who is no longer interested in making music commercially. But you can still teach group music classes.
To teach you can go from documented knowledge to interactive learning. So you can document your learning in the form of books, and recorded video courses.
To go to the next-level and bigger earnings, make interactive cohort-based courses, or run group coaching sessions with community support.
If you don’t have an existing audience, it is always a good idea to start creating content around your skill, to create awareness about your expertise. To this end, you can create a YouTube channel, a podcast, or a weekly newsletter.
You just need to commit to convert your passion into profits and explore and you’ll find a way.
