I’ve read about 2,489 articles on one question that drives me crazy: How do you turn your passion into a business?

Yep. That question drives me nuts.

Why do I hate this question?

1. It leads to an exercise in futility.
Finding your sole passion and turning it into a business is a outlook that impedes more than helps, because...

2. It assumes there is only one passion for you.
Nobody has just one passion. Okay, there are exceptions (there always are), but chances are this isn't you.

3. It's constraining.
You convince yourself you need to discover your big thing and you waste your time in this search.

I think, instead of plodding uphill in this futile passion rush, simply ask yourself this…

What do I truly want?

Then follow up with a second question..

Why has "it" not happened?

I don't think it's a stretch to say that most often your "what I want" answer is about freedom. The reason things haven't happened is because your dreaming and not doing.

So the big question to ask is… How do I define MY freedom? This is unique to you, of course. Only you can define your way, but it IS the one big question.

Today's podcast is my riff on the ever popular "find your passion" argument.
