#586 “I know this place like I know the calluses on my hands.”




How many times have you heard stories like these?
  • A woman loves making pottery, so she decides to open a little shop to sell her wares.
  • A man is passionate about writing, so he quits his job to focus on his first novel.
Then… wait for it…Nothing happens - No customers, no readers, no clients. Nothing. They return to the world of the “working dead” with their tails tucked between their legs and their egos bruised. Worst of all, they’ve lost their faith in the kind of world where they can make a living doing something they love. It doesn't have to be that way. The hard truth about “following your passion”, is that we believe money will follow if we do what we love, but it’s a dangerous recommendation.


It makes sense that you’d make the most money when you do something you’re interested and invested in. When you bring your heart and soul to work, the work should earn you more than when you’re dragging yourself in every day.   I’ve seen it happen again and again. I hear people’s ideas for a passion-based business. They start making plans, they mentally decorate their new offices and they wonder how their boss is going to take it when they’ve made enough money to quit. They do all this without taking into account the biggest myth - When it comes to earning money doing what you love, you have to remember: Right now, nobody cares about your passions. It isn’t about you, It isn’t about your passion. It’s about your clients and customers: what you give to them, what you do for them and how they benefit from knowing you. You have to make them care about your passion so much they’ll pay you to do it.


You’ve probably heard about unique value from the worlds of personal branding and job hunting. In this case, instead of unique value being about who you are and the value you offer, it’s about what you’re really here to do. Are you an expert at making pretty, functional pottery, or are you best at helping people to experience something through your work? Are you writing a great novel, or are you on a mission to make people think about an issue so profoundly meaningful to you it’s a part of who you are? Unique value for passion-based workers is very close to the heart. It’s why you do what you do. It’s the heart and soul of who you are. You can start looking for your unique value by knowing what you love to give so much you can’t help giving it (your mission). Once you’ve found that, it’s your job to make other people care about it, too.

Don’t just expect that other people will “get it.” Show them why they should care. Our farmers have an unique passion for working hard and producing the best they can for their land. There personal brand is a passion for doing what they love but also they want people to love their produce and want to come back for it again and again.
