It is easy to settle with what you have. Maybe you are stuck in a nine to five job going nowhere but are relieved that you can just manage to pay the bills. This is most probably the safe option and, in the current climate, it is understandable to feel that doing anything else is a risk. However, we all have a special talent that can be utilized to earn, yes everyone, maybe you have not found it yet, but it is there.

Think back to your schooldays, what were you interested in? Sometimes it is necessary to think back to childhood because as we grow up our minds get tainted by what we “should” be doing as opposed to what we want to do and enjoy.

If you already know what you would really like to do as a fulltime job, think about how you can enter this area of work. Do you have any qualifications for this subject, or work experience?

If your special interest is somewhat related to your current job but you have not quite managed to secure the job, talk to your employer about your interest in the subject. If you don’t ask, you don’t get. The very sign of enthusiasm and willingness to work is a great motivation for an employer to dish out jobs.

Sometimes it is possible to work and learn with many companies only to happy to send their employees on courses to further their knowledge.

Your real passions and interest in a subject may have nothing to do with your current job and in this case it is time to work out a plan. Make a final goal and a realistic plan to reach it. This might involve going to evening classes whilst still working in your job or if you can afford to, study full-time. It will pay dividends long-term and you will never look back. Another option is to study full-time and work part-time, many courses offer grants and student loans to mature students, take advantage.

Maybe your special interest does not require qualifications but old-fashioned elbow grease and determination. There is a huge market for hobby related business where you can sell your wares or even teach others to improve theirs.

If you are into arts and crafts, you can build a website centred around your subject or even on ebay. Many are selling ebooks, full of instructions and guidance on a particular theme and are using other affiliates to help sell their product.

Back in the day it was far more difficult to set up business from scratch in the offline world but now, with the internet at your disposal, the sky is the limit.

Small time writers both fiction and non are enjoying great success writing online for others such as ebooks and copywriting. You can build a website offering your services with examples of your work. If you target your market genre effectively, there should be no reason for you not to reap the benefits.

Other talents and skills such as music, dancing and acting for work are also more attainable with many websites bursting with adverts for jobs and auditions. If you put yourself out there, create a stunning C.V or portfolio and don’t give up, you too can quit the rat-race and start living your life the way you want to.
