So, you had a dream—a dream that sparked your interests and filled you with excitement. But somewhere along the way, reality happened and hit you right in the face. Since then, life has been nothing but a series of short-lived passions and endless obligations. It wasn’t always like this, and it doesn’t have to be.
It’s time to build a life you’re proud of. When life makes things seem like an endless routine, it’s a surefire sign that you shouldn’t be settling with whatever it’s giving.
Don’t settle. Just because everyone says you can’t, doesn’t mean you can’t. Following your passions while having an unwavering sense of purpose may not always guarantee smooth sailing, but its high-time you took control. Take control by finding something to invest in. Here are 5 easy steps to earning money online while doing what you love:
1) Creating Your Own Website
Creating your own website can be both exciting and fun. You can start small by posting about what you love. Defining your goal and choosing your target market is also a great way to set your site up. When you have your own site, you’re free to post anything and everything under the sun—free from the judgment of others.
2) Advertising and Promotion
The key to promoting your site is spreading the word. Let the entire internet know about your site by sharing about it on social media and pay per click contextual ad networks. These sites generate income by clicks and pay you depending on the number of clicks your site generates daily. The more people visit your site, the larger your audience becomes and the more clicks you get.

3) Create Your Own Product
Being your own boss is incomplete without customers to cater to. Attract a larger market by specializing in your own product. Successful entrepreneurs have the ability to select the right products or services to cater to customers of a competitive market. Sell something you’d like and try to see things through your customer’s eyes—would they like what they’re seeing?
4) Providing Services
Providing services is another common yet effective way of increasing revenue. Blogging is a great way to create traffic for your site and make yourself known to the online world. Many people create blogs for the sole purpose of selling their content and getting more clients.
Blogging also gives you an opportunity to become a writer or author. By blogging and writing pages daily, you gain more writing experience and reach out to millions of people in the internet. It’s a great way to reach out to other people and to build a network of lasting friendships.
