In recent months I have watched a proliferation of ads for instant financial break thru for various products or services. They say that you will gain or find financial freedom if you do this or that or follow this formula etc. Are they selling you a dream? I don’t know because I believe for some it may work out in the end. It just seems like a lot of work to me!
My question is how about just building that One Thing? That one thing that will grow and expand and continue to produce over and over again?
For me it just seems very exhausting to be doing multiple things to get the almighty dollar, when building that one thing requires you to do multiple things to bring it to life, to nurture it, for it to come to a place where it can run on its own and keep reproducing.
I write books and I was given children s books to start with, which I thoroughly enjoy doing. I have found that since I have started this that there are multiple things that need to be done to keep up with the overwhelming tide. Not only do you have to write, illustrate, publish and market these books you also have to continually come up with new content, meet people, do school visits and the big one, continually put yourself out there. Now I am feeling the need to expand my writing into other genres, and don’t get me started on this pull I now feel toward doing more artwork that has nothing to do with books at all.
My question is how do you split your focus to do all of these other things when building that one thing requires all of your attention???
I don’t know just my thoughts on the matter! Care to share yours?
