How Do I Find My Niche, Finally?

Just find your niche and make money online! One of those statements that are easier said than done. Some people know what they want to do in life at an early age. More power to them. I am one of those people who changed professions many times. I am jack of all trades, but master to none.

I can say that I have a drive and the attitude that no matter what happens in life, I can rebuild from it. All of my experiences made me stronger. Everything I have done until now, the good, the bad, the worse, was the greatest learning experiences.

It took me years to before I realize what I love to do. I had a conversation with a friend of mine about it and she said, “You should specialize in internet marketing and websites. You enjoy doing it; and it brightens up your face when you talk about it”. You may need to ask someone who’s close to you what your best assets are or what do they think you are good at. Sometimes you can’t see your vision from just trying to stay above water and trying to pay the bills. You have to work, somewhere, doing something. Life gets in the way of you truly sensing your passion.

Once I thought about what my friend suggested, I figured, Of course! This is what I should do as a career. I haven’t turned back. Internet marketing comes natural to me since every profession I have engaged in I had market my business online and offline. I always design and program my own website and I advertise the best ways that I knew how online. I am currently working on a web project for customers to “Create Your Own Website”. You will be able to complete your own website without any knowledge of programming or design with over 1,000 web 2.0 templates, shopping carts, membership sites to choose from.

Here are a couple of suggestions on finding your passions:

* Try a different niche until you find your passion. It won’t hurt you, plus the skills you’ve gathered will help you in the long run.

* Ask someone close to you. This is how I discovered my niche.

* Go to a career counselor. Maybe a career test may help you find your niche.

I know it’s hard, No one knows better than me.
