*I know some of you reading this article are not solopreneurs but that's O.K. Simply replace "turn your passions into profit" with anything else you want...new career, love, etc! It all works the same!

Get to Know Your Brilliant SELF Better!

The first and most important thing you must do to turn your passions into profit is ask great questions! These questions are basic, but how you answer them is far from basic. In fact, YOUR ANSWERS are YOUR KEYS to living a purpose-filled, freedom-filled and profit-filled life.

Your answers will be unique to you and they're important because they will form the foundation from which your business and life will grow. The time you spend creating a strong foundation is an investment you make in your dreams.

The following questions and your answers are powerful because they will open doors to the life you were born to live.

The #1 mistake I see gifted passion-filled solopreneurs make is not spending enough time asking the right questions and getting really, really clear about what makes them and their offer unique.

1. What are you naturally great at?
2. What do you care about most deeply?
3. What drives you?
4. What do you hold most dear?
5. What's your calling?

For the sake of WHAT is SELF clarity important?

· Clarity is power.
· Clarity activates the law of attraction.
· Clarity sets you apart from others in your field.
· Clarity makes your life and business easier.
· Clarity allows you to make decisions faster.
· Clarity enriches your life.
· Clarity gives you confidence because you'll start seeing for yourself there really is no other person quite like you in the entire world.

YOU are a one and only!

And that is ENOUGH to create the life and business of your dreams.

Look at the most successful people you know, like and trust. What do they all have in common? They know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, what makes them unique.

I can't stress enough how important it is to spend time gaining extreme clarity. It's not always fun. It is time consuming. It takes you to the depths of your heart and heights of your soul. It's also an easy place to get stuck (always in the question, never taking action). Sometimes it can be hard to justify more "soul searching" if you need to pay the bills.

But, if you put the cart before the horse you may wind up chasing your tail and wasting valuable time and money on things that aren't perfectly aligned with WHO YOU REALLY ARE.
