Do what you love for a living!

Share and Enjoy !

Escape the 9 to 5 at that Job you hate, and do what you love instead !

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to make a living and be able to do what you love, and even better and be able to do what you love for a living?


I spent many years saying that. As an avid outdoors man I would see professional fishermen like Bill Dance or Kevin VanDam fishing and making a lot of money doing it!

I would see people like Jim Shockey and Bill Jordan going on huge hunting trips all over the world, and be just a little jealous! Why can’t I do that?

Either I or one of my buddies would usually answer that with a comment like,”it takes money to make money” or “you have to know someone and be willing to gamble to do something like that” So I would continue to wonder and ask myself the same questions over and over! And never get anywhere. After all I have to get home so I can get up for work, right.

Doing what were told

From an early age were told that we must go to school and get good grades so that we can get into a good college and make a lot of money at a job with great benefits, and someday retire while we still have a little time left to do the things we want before we die.

The hobbies and things we are passionate about have to wait for the weekend or we have to take vacation time from work, as long as someone else hasn’t already asked for that day off.

To get an unscheduled day to live our own lives ewe have to call an employer at a job we hate and ask if it’s OK! Most employers have developed the mindset that they own their employees and the time that employee has.

So we work our entire lives being job scared that if we don’t please that employer we may be fired. So we get up every day and get ready to go to a job that we absolutely hate, because that is what were supposed to do!

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that everyone should quit their job! Absolutely not! That would not be a wide or responsible thing to do. You have to have a means of putting food on the table and paying the bills.

But if you already have a job, wouldn’t it be great to be working your way away from it instead of towards it? I mean just for a minute, wouldn’t it be great to do what you are passionate about, and get paid for it!

Let’s talk about change!

I know ! That word is scary, and has not been utter by many people’s lips for a long time. After all we are programmed from the time we start school until retirement that life is about going to work, get a paycheck. pay the bills and repeat until we retire. Don’t feel bad I have been stuck in that mire for a long time too. But not anymore !


It all came to a crashing halt for me the one day I had an AHA moment about school! I mean we were taught math, social studies, reading and writing, English and so forth. And all those things are absolutely a must for a good employee. But why did they not teach us about being good employers? Why are there no subjects in school that explain the ins and outs of money?

My conclusion is that it’s because the elites in society dictate what is taught because that curriculum keeps the lines full of miserable employees. How do we change that? Is there actually a way I can get paid to go deer hunting, or fishing?

You bet there is. I’ll all but guarantee that everyone else who has been brain washed will say you are crazy for thinking it! After all you are discussing an option that will upset the apple cart ! Heck many of you reading this might be thinking the same thing right now! But I will tell you that it’s true! You can make a living doing what you love! It doesn’t really matter what it is either!

You may have a passion for golf ! How would you like to go play 18 holes every other day with your brand new set of clubs and have all that including your cart fees and lunch with your golfing buddy paid for ? Sound far fetched? It’s not at all!

If your passion is knitting, how would you like to invite all the ladies or gentlemen in your knitting club over for lunch and share patterns and ideas and get paid for it?

You love your chocolate Lab and would love to start a breeding business and build a nice location and kennels, but you don’t have the time or money? You can do these things and pretty much anything else you can think of! Want to know how? I will tell you, but you need to sit down and get ready, because this is Earth shattering news!

Have you ever heard of Google?

In search of the 4 hour work week!

a job you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”. That is a quote that has been given credit to everyone from Confusious to Winston Churchhill. But whoever said it was spot on !

Just a few years ago a gentleman named Timothy Ferris wrote a book named The Four Hour Work Week.

This book set the world of hopeful entrepreneurs on fire! It laid out in great detail the ways many people are making a lot of money doing what they are passionate about and ways to do it without using all of your most precious asset, time.

This was a book that opened the eyes of many people and lifted the veil of exactly how easily it is to get started. Many wealthy entrepreneurs already knew much about this well kept secret, but many of them used the knowledge within the covers of Mr. Ferris’ book to supercharge their efforts even more!

Then another book named The laptop millionaire blew the door open even wider! And that was the one that got me ! In depth details of how it’s done!

A gameplan of sorts on beating the system, and hanging up your running shoes because you are no longer part of the rat race! It is true ! You really can be paid well for doing something you love! And the expenses of doing it fall into the category of business expenses so they are even tax deductable!

The riches are in the niches !

You see whatever you love to do, have a passion about, or just an interest is considered a niche. And a niche can be pretty much anything!

Playing guitar, raising chickens, hot air balloons, weight loss, and just about anything you can name is a niche and means that there are likely others who enjoy the same thing! You can discover more about niches here.

You simply take that thing that you are passionate about and promote it to other people with the same passion! That is the real simple thing about it! And you do this through creating a website. HOLD ON DON’T LEAVE !

Creating a website is easy and to be honest you can create a website in under 30 seconds!

Once your website is built you simply communicate ideas and helpful advice to the people in your niche by writing those ideas in a blog. Not an essay! You want to simply communicate with someone as though you are talking directly to them.


Then you can promote products that you can use within that niche on your website. You can promote products through Amazon, or any of thousands locations around the world. You simply search google for affiliate programs for that product. Let’s say your niche is in makeup. Just type in “makeup affiliate programs”.

When you find a company with a good product you do the simple free sign up for their affiliate program. Ten go to the product on their site that you want to promote. Copy the “affiliate link” for that product and paste it into a review or discussion on your website.

When someone finds your review by google search or other means and clicks the link resulting in a purchase, you get a percentage as a commission.

That is known as Affiliate marketing! You can promote fishing reels, sewing machines, golf clubs, sneekers, or millions of other items!

So you want to know more about escaping the rat race?

I have explained the basics here. And it’s not difficult at all! But it is not a get rich quick scheme! If you want that I don’t know of many ways you can accomplish that goal. The internet can yield some really hairy get rich quick schemes, but thy never work. And the only person who makes money is the person perpetrating the scam.

Affiliate marketing is actually a business, and like most businesses it takes some time and work to build your business. In all honesty I don’t consider working a couple of hours a day on a computer as work.

After spending many years in the maintenance field, I look at my affiliate marketing business as fun that makes money! And with time this fun activity can make serious money!

One of the best things about affiliate marketing is that you don’t need any special skills, not even computer skills to get started!

It doesn’t matter how rich or poor, young or old, tech savvy or a complete starter, anyone can get started. And the only requirements is an average computer and an internet connection.

I see this type of online business as means of people who don’t have the means to start a business otherwise, to succeed online! People who are unemployed, stay at home moms or dads, retired, disabled, or people who are simply sick of running the rat race are finding a solution with affiliate marketing in a niche website!

While it is basically easy to get started, you can save a lot of time if you have someone to help you out. Someone like a mentor. I didn’t know anyone who even owned a website when I started.

After looking for help I found a great program to help get going and do it much faster and easy! I’ll put a link to my review here on how to get a free account. Take a look and think about seriously considering affiliate marketing! It can change your life!

Thanks for reading ! I hope you seriously consider trying online business ! It’s a lot of fun and the possibilities are endless!

If you have questions or comments, please leave them below and I will get back to you ASAP!

Have a great day!

  2. Mike, great article. This helps stoke that fire driving me to succeed in the business. You have some great perspectives that everyone can benefit from. Keep at it, and best of success on your journey!

  3. Hi Mike
    You definitely wrote this post read feeling of revolt concerning what’s going on in the world when it comes to make a living day by day.
    i can feel your energy. For sure if you could you would change the world condition and i am 100% agree with you. i would love it to be equal where people do what they love and contribute to the society.

    But you know what if you take time a little to study people you will find about 95% of people in the world don’t know what they love for that reason the y keep changing mind every 5 minutes in a day not to say every second.
    Don’t you realize that there are more self millionaires in the world than professional ones?

    How could someone really say he/she love something if he/she doesn’t stick to it?
