I will admit that I have a bad habit of focusing on the wrong things. The business I run, a blog called The Business of Writing, is meant to teach and help others. I feel that it is up to me to keep that in mind as I write and share the things that I have learned to help others succeed.
I think that there’s a problem with the way we think of our business models. There are times when we feel like we have a lot of stuff that we can share with the world. We have our services, we have our books, and we have our websites. But if we’re going to do something with them, we have to be clear what that thing is.
I think the problem is that our business models are overly complex. We have too many products, too many options, and too many ways to make money. This is why we tend to build a business around a single product, a single product line, or a single service.
Let’s make this clear: There is no one single product in the world. There is only a product, a service, or a business model. And there is no one single way to make money. Just like there is no one single way to have a good time, there is no one single way to be a good person. It’s okay to have a fun life. It’s okay to have a job that you love. But there is no one single way to make money.
You might think its crazy to say that I get to spend my days working as a software engineer for a corporation. There are people who do this and they get paid fairly well, they are very comfortable, and they have great work-life balance. But, believe it or not, there are others who do this and its just not worth it.
The problem is when you get really into it, and you become one of those people. You get so hung up on the idea of making money that your life becomes one of constant hustle and hustle and hustle. It sounds great in theory, but once you get to the point where you are making more money than everyone else, your life becomes more stressful and less enjoyable.
The problem is that you can’t just make more money. You can’t just get more sleep. You need to have the discipline to be able to make it work.
I know what you’re thinking. I’m not going to say that making money is bad, but it is something that needs to be done. If you are just making money in any capacity and it isn’t producing something that you can use to make money later, then you are not making money. Money is a tool. Tools are to be used. As in, you can use money to buy products, but you cannot use money to make you money.
When I first encountered the idea of making money, I thought it was something that was good. I thought it just needed to be made. Since then, I have changed my mind. Making money is not something you can just get. The idea of making money is something that you should work for. I don’t think you can make money just as a passive act of creation. I think the best way to make money is to actively invest in something that pays you a return.
The concept of passive creation is a good one, but there are real downsides to it. For example, most of the time when I see something that seems to need to be made, it’s because I’ve already thought about it for a long time and it’s just a matter of finding a way to get it done. However, there are times when you can’t just come up with a good idea to sell, because you haven’t invested any time to create that idea.
