Hi there 😊,
This blog is a very special blog, in this one, I will explain the concept of Passion to Lifestyle.
When taking notes regarding this blog, I was also writing the story on WHY am I doing all of this, WHY do I want to help you, WHY do I care about your ideas and dreams, WHY do I want to see you succeed, but then realize that I will like to answer those questions one by one talking to you directly like in a 1 to 1.
Therefore, I will focus this blog only to explain the concept of Passion to Lifestyle, and for that, I will little bits of my own story 🥰.
Before starting with the little story, let's bring the Passion to Lifestyle Model in front of our eyes, as if it's going to be our guide through the little story.
At this moment you don't have to understand what does passion, profession, mission, vocation mean; although, they are kind of self-explanatory as each one of these concepts ends being molded to each reader (you) and their meaning is very subjective depending on each personal passion.
From Passion to Lifestyle
Part 1: Your Current Situation
You have a set of skills that you have earned while studying a professional or technical program, or also by working several years within a market. You might have a technical, bachelor, master, or Ph.D. Degree and you are getting paid for how you apply this knowledge into a work situation. This situation can be enclosed as Your Profession.
I have a bachelor´s degree in Civil Engineering with a major in Hydraulics, additionally, I also have a Master´s degree in Environmental Engineering. I did work in engineering for 2 years.
On the other side, as I have changed my career, I have worked within Digital Marketing for 8 years becoming an expert in Google Ads (Search, Display, Shopping, YouTube) and Facebook Ads. Digital Marketing is not my passion, is the vehicle to reach my passion which is helping you to reach your passion.
Part 2: Your also current situation
You might have many hobbies, have training in other skills completely different from your profession, you might have mastery in something that you enjoy, but you also have that "thing" that moves your body, that relaxes you, that gives you energy, dopamine and puts your brain into a trance of emotions where you lost track of time, but, unfortunately, you are not getting paid for this......yet. This situation is enclosed as Your Passion.
My passion is to make your passion your lifestyle. I will elaborate more on the WHY as I wrote at the beginning of the blog, but I can tell you this. I have 3 superpowers. Empathy, Adaptability and..........Seeing potential in people even when they don't see it themselves. This my friends, is what makes my passion my passion. Your Potential.
Part 3: Your dream situation
In your dream situation, you get paid for doing your passion 😊. Sounds amazing right?
Imagine gaining so much mastery and loving your passion so much that it becomes your profession and a person will pay you for doing your passion. Amazing stuff 😍. However, reality doesn't work like that 😥.
The reason why your dream situation is unrealistic is that you are missing something. Can you see the little RED QUESTION MARK in the diagram? That question mark is crucial to complete your dream situation. That question mark is............. An Audience.
You cannot make your passion your lifestyle without an audience, the people, your customers. Simple, who is going to pay for your passion?
You might be thinking, "I will become a YouTuber, for that, I don't need customers", well, I don't want to disappoint you, but you cannot get inside the Youtube Partner Program without an Audience (Advertisement customers).
Part 4: The way-to-go situation
Adding your audience, your customers because you can now give them what they need. And this my friend, is the beauty of the Passion to Lifestyle Model, to use your passion to serve a need or solve a problem that will make your customers pay for your lifestyle.
Adding your audience also opens two new dimensions: Your Vocation and Your Mission. To make these two concepts very simple.
Your mission: Is giving your passion a voice, a voice to say WHY your customers should pay for your lifestyle.
Your vocation: Is giving your profession (passion) value, your vocation is that strong feeling of suitability for your particular passion. An example, even with studies in medicine not all of us have a vocation to be doctors.
Now let's combine everything.
Your Passion + Your Profession + Your Vocation + Your Mission = Your Lifestyle
Your current situation: BSc in Civil Engineering. 8 years of experience in Digital Marketing. Getting Paid for doing Google Ads and FB Ads.
You also current situation: Helping creator independent solopreneurs to make their passion their lifestyle by using knowledge in startups, digital marketing, and sales.
My dream situation: Getting paid for helping creator independent solopreneurs to make their passion their lifestyle.
The way-to-go situation:
Passion: Helping you make your passion your lifestyle.
Profession: Generate a set of coaching material and services to guide my customers to make their passion their lifestyle.
Vocation: Helping others with all my heart.
Mission: Improve people's mental health by pursuing a career in what they love to do the most with the values of ethical digital marketing.
This is it, the Passion to Lifestyle Model. My whole passion is at your hands and I love it. 😍😍😍😍
Let's keep it up yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Note for me: I love thissssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss fuck yeah.
