• Good point, Sheila! That’s one reason I mentioned “researching”. If someone delves into a brand new niche, that’s fine, as long as they really enjoy doing the necessary research. And we all know — educating ourselves on a topic takes time and patience. And for folks who choose to “fudge” their way through are really taking a BIG risk of losing their credibility.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  • Melanie,
    There is no doubt that I do better when I write about some thing I am interested in. Mostly because I can come from my own experience.

    Writing about the journey of some new interest can also be a fun way to post. I don’t always know what is coming up.

  • Joyce! What a treat and a joy to see you here!

    I’m glad you see it this way. It’s really nice to make money, right? We ALL want to do that. But if you’re not genuinely and authentically inspired to do the necessary ‘work’ (day in and day out), chances are pretty darn good the bucks won’t come rolling in.

  • Melanie,
    You asked the ultimate question every entrepreneur has to answer before anything else happens. Will you awaken every morning – inspired, enthused, and motivated?

  • Eydie and Annie — thanks for your input and glad you enjoyed this post.

    Although we just crossed paths recently, I can tell (beyond a shadow of a doubt) that the two of you definitely have your heads screwed on straight and your hearts are in the right place! 🙂

  • Love what you do and do what you love – love this post Melanie 🙂

  • Great advice Melanie, nothing is worse than forcing yourself to be, or do, something you’re not thrilled about doing. Finding your niche is so important to a successful business.
