    I have been an affiliate marketer for a year now and love it! I also went through Wealthy Affiliate as well and can tell your readers that it is everything that that you will ever need to start and grow your own business from home. Is it hard…. no. Does it take time… yes. But as long as you have a passion for whatever you decide to write about it can be a lot of fun to do!

      Yes, I agree with what you have said. As long as you have passion for whatever you do, you will not be conscious about time. The most time conscious are those working on a project halfheartedly. With Wealthy Affiliate, you will really enjoy the process of turning your passion into profits.

    I agree that a brick and mortar business does not succeed if started in haste without anchoring the nature of business to one’s passion. It even takes out the joy of working for yourself and making money.

    Whereas online business starts off with selecting a niche, something that you are passionate about. You are more likely to be successful.

    Nice website, page aptly named ‘turning-passion-into-profits-101’

      Thank you for your comment. Do you also operate an online business?

      That is exactly the approach Wealthy Affiliate teaches its students. To start by selecting a niche, and build a business around that niche. Build a business around something that interests you.

    Great post! 

    One of the problems I encountered online is, most people are looking for a quick way to succeed, otherwise they will not give effort. Even if the business is as good as WA, they’re not interested. How can we work around this problem? How can we convince them that ours is the real deal?

    Any suggestion?

    • Gomer Magtibay

      Thanks for asking.

      My experience tells me that, these people are not the right ones for us. Or, perhaps, not yet the right time for them. Maybe, after experiencing setbacks forcing them to really think, they will open up for our ideas.

      Just do your business, and you will attract the right people. If you are inviting people to Wealthy Affiliate, soon you will meet the ones that are just right for you!

    Turning your passion into a business could be a great way to get extra motivation for the first months.

    There are not many people in offline businesses who can claim that they do what they love. But in the online world, most people follow their passion.

    I think this happens because there is no geographical limitation. I could not start many types of businesses in the small town where I live.

    However, people from many different countries read my blogs.

    • Gomer Magtibay

      Exactly!

      Our online businesses, our blogs, are being read in my countries.. so it’s like having a global business. And since online business is easier to implement than capital-intensive offline counterparts, we can easily convert our ideas and interests, into a business. So, we can also call this, “turning passion into profits made easy”.

    You are absolutely right about Turning a passion into a business because if you know the particular subject and you love doing it, then why not get paid for doing it.?. I myself am passionate about my subject, genealogy, and i have so much that i want to put on my website that i have not got even half way yet. Thank you for your post because that is going to help a lot of people get in the right frame of mind to make an online business.

    • Gomer Magtibay

      You’re welcome, Andrew. And thanks, too for reading.

      It’s my job to lead people to where they should go, especially those with potential for online business success. In fact, I’ve led a lot of people already to Wealthy Affiliate and I will be doing this as long as I can.

    I started affiliate marketing in July of this year and am still waiting for my first sale but absolutely love developing and nurturing a website based on something I love.

    I love the profit is better than wages quote and couldn’t agree with it more! I hope in the next couple of years to be completely self-sufficient and out of the normal 9-5 job which is so draining.

    • Gomer Magtibay

      Building a conventional business usually takes 3 to 5 years before you can finally see the fruits of your labor. Although ours in online business can take shorter waiting period, we should be prepared and be ready for the long haul. Just take for example, it took me 2 years before I finally realized that I need to go premium. Not all people go the same process I have, some go premium within months after joining, but the bottom line to all these, whether you’re doing WA Affiliate Bootcamp or marketing products with Amazon, is to really allow enough time to let the business grow on its natural course.

    Hi, 

    Passion is a good thing. But here is the thing. There is a saying – your passion may make you money, only if other people are passionate about the same thing.

    True, that in many cases your passion is somebody else’ passion, but it may not be the case. 

    My point is – it is better to start with other people passion and great products available to promote. And if that happens to be your passion – you will be doing great. 

    What do you think? 

    Thanks

    • Gomer Magtibay

      I think, that saying is partially true.

      Even the lowest of all passions, like for example, collecting pebbles.. Someone would wonder, “Are there people on Earth interested in collecting pebbles? Are there profits to be made from this?”. I bet you, if you search all this world, you will find people with the same interest, although they are very few.

      My point is, whatever passion you may have, if you create a website for it to publish your story, there will always be readers. And if you have readers, you have an audience to advertise to. You can pick up the lowest kind of advertising as far as monetization is concern, like for example Google Adsense, to make money out of your story.

    Hi Coach Gom, 

    I like the way you described it-Using Your passion into money making machine. 

    I could not agree with you more on the fact that Wealthy affiliate is really the place to be for any beginner and even experienced marketers. I had tried many different things online before stumbling upon WA a few months ago and it is worth the time. 

    Once you go through all the courses , you will be way ahead of over 99% of online marketers.

    • Gomer Magtibay

      It’s good to hear that you find Wealthy Affiliate worth your time. And yes, you’re right. You can go to places like Warrior Forum to learn about online marketing, but it is only WA that was able to create a step by step lessons designed to help beginners, take note of that, BEGINNERS, learn about online business.
