Finding your niche
Before you begin to make money you need to find something you are passionate about. If you try to pick something you have little to no interest in then believe me you will get fed up and fail. If you try to find something you think everyone wants and you know next to nothing about it you will fail. If you just try to focus on ways to make money from home, you will fail.
Can you see a pattern emerging? Well you should because that’s how most blogs fail. Lack of planning, lack of commitment, lack of knowledge and most critically lack of enthusiasm.
If there is a topic, hobby or thing you are already passionate about then great! You are off to a good start. If not then put your thinking cap on. I mean really do it, spend a few hours, a day, a week if you have to. This is crucial as once you commit if you change your mind you will have to start over from the beginning.
The other thing to not focus on yet is how to make money online, we will get to that part later. What is important now is the foundation from which you will build your income.
Whether you want the best home based businesses for you or international travel jobs that allow you to travel to an unlimited number of destinations, you are in the right place.

In fact let’s use that as an example. You like coffee so what can we do with that?
Off the top of my head I can think of a few.
You could try buying coffee and adding flavors to make your own unique blends for sale. You will need to research requirements as you will be dealing with food but you could even source ready packaged coffee to re-branding with your own label.
Maybe you could order and try the different coffee blends at home and put reviews for each online in a blog and add advertising onto the blog.
You could have an affiliate site promoting different types of coffee machines, grinders and equipment, earning commissions for each promoted item sold.
That’s just 3 things I thought of in about 2 minutes, imagine what you could think of in an hour or two or by brainstorming ideas with friends.
Think outside the box but within your niche
