Do What You Love And…

weird facts by Shawn
I get a lot of emails from people asking me about how to make money, etc

They ask me what they should sell, what’s hot, “the next big thing” etc…

Unfortunately, most people seem to think that the only way to make money on line is by teaching other people how to make money on line.

That couldn’t be further from the truth.

I show people how to make money on line because I love it (and live it). I’m truly passionate about it. I’ve been making money online for over 10 years and I absolutely love it. That’s why I do so well and most others don’t.

Now, I’m not discouraging you from teaching others how to make money if that’s your passion. If it’s something you love, then go for it.

If it’s not, consider this:

When times get tough and the money gets low, as it inevitably will, most people tend to quit because they aren’t passionate about what they’re doing…they’re chasing after money.

When you’re following your passion and doing what you love, ‘work’ doesn’t look like ‘work’ it’s fun. And because it’s fun you’ll see what could be considered ‘problems’ as fun and exciting opportunities.

You’ll push through the tough times and inevitably succeed beyond your wildest dreams.

A friend of mine wrote about this in his book where he shows people how to turn their hobby into a business..

He gives you dozens of quick and easy ways to start profiting from the thing you love to do…your hobby. And, even better, he shows you how to ‘keep it fun’. This is really important be cause when most people try to turn their hobby into business they get ‘burned out’ and eventually start disliking the thing they loved so much.

Stop spending money on the thing you love and start making money from it!!

Click here now and get started making money from your hobby.

Weird Facts: Star Wars' Yoda Has His Own Stamp Now

weird facts
The U.S. Postal Service sought to harness the force Thursday, releasing a new postage stamp featuring Star Wars' enigmatic Yoda, known for his odd syntax as well as his wisdom.

The Jedi master's stamp was originally part of a multi-stamp Star Wars set and is now available as an individual stamp following a public vote on which of that set should receive special attention.

Also on Thursday the post office released its annual Christmas and holiday stamps.

The set of four holiday stamps features classic wintertime knitting design imagery.

"The new holiday stamps provide another way for people to express warm winter greetings on all their mailings sent this season to family, friends or customers, " said Katherine C. Tobin, a member of the post office's governing board.

Inspired by traditional Norwegian sweaters, the stamps include a stag, a snow-dappled evergreen tree, a snowman sporting a top hat and a whimsical teddy bear.

The Christmas stamp is a traditional Madonna and child. This year's image is from Bernardino Luini's "Madonna of the Carnation," painted around 1515 and now part of the collection at the National Gallery of Art.

All of the new stamps carry the current 41-cent first-class rate and had their first day of issue ceremonies at a stamp show in New York.
