The topics in this book include Passion/ideas/dreams/ goals, time management, target customer, how much to charge, finances, how to hire an accountant and why, how to hire a lawyer and why, incorporation, how to handle taxes, collecting payments, marketing, social media, online presence, how to create a logo, contracts and business plan.

What made you want to write from Passion to Profit?

So many people ask me how they can start a side hustle! They see that I am travelling the world without a job, and they want to know how. I want to share! I want to give back and tell everyone how they can side hustle too. This book is going to walk you through the step by step process.

What if you feel unqualified, or if you never had the opportunity to learn specific skills that seem essential to earning the extra money you desire? Is it too late to start?

If you are not a professionally trained entrepreneur, it’s too late to start now. I am just kidding! Being able to live this life is about finding the “hustle” that is within you. I give you the steps within my new book, but you must have the desire to create the lifestyle that you desire which is not something that you can do once and be rich overnight. This book is not a get rich quick scheme. I am always working, and I love every minute of it. I love what I do so it never feels like work. This is something that you are going to want to do every day. I always advise to take baby steps, but the first thing to do is to start.

Most people are very busy, including people with families and hold down more than one job.

How can someone overcome obstacles like a lack of time and money to become what you call “a hustling hottie”? It is one of the topics that I cover in my book, so for that, I won’t say too much. But what I will say is, this is not easy. You make the time for the things that you cherish most in life. Keep in mind that most people never have enough time or enough money to do what they love, but somehow some people manage to, anyhow. Set clear, concise goals and set a time to work on your passion. Anything is possible.
