Trying New Things
- First, ask yourself what brings you the greatest joy.
- Second, look to see if there is anyone currently making money doing any of those things right now. 99% of the time, someone is. Go learn from them and become the expert.
- Third, go volunteer with them if possible. Learn about it from the inside. You will learn whether or not you want to pursue it but you will also see opportunities that have yet to be taken advantage of.
- There is a lot of misinformation online about how to make money, you should look for the people who have actually accomplished something to learn from.
