PASSION: Holding Your Interest Over Time

You must be willing to immerse yourself in the subject. Ask yourself:
  • Is this something you’re interested in anyway? Even if you weren’t doing this business, would you be involved in this niche or interested in the subject matter?

    Yes, because this drives the development of This allows me to increase my intrinsic value that helps me to teach which in turn accelerates the product development. The byproducts of developing can be sold.

  •  - Does creating information products for this niche seem like it would be fun for you? Or would you have to force yourself to do it and would it seem more like work?


  •  - Do you like the people that are involved in this niche? Do you empathize with your prospects and can you really put yourself in their shoes? Or are they just a means to end or something you’d have to tolerate along the way?

  • Yes.

     - Can you see yourself in this niche five years from now? Again, you’re building a business for the long-term. So ask yourself whether you can maintain the enthusiasm into the future. You won’t know for sure, of course. After all, you can change and grow a lot in five years. But you’ll have a pretty good idea. 


Why you should create a product based on your skills

One of the information product I bought on Infopreneur business says:

But one of the big mistakes people make is thinking that whatever they know or whatever they've learned is actually common knowledge. And because they think it's common knowledge, they don't think it's worth anything to anybody. It's human nature. Once you know something, or once you've invested the time to master something, it’s easy to assume that everyone else knows it, too. 

If you can add value to the existing books by providing a unique point of view, make it easier to learn and improve on the products currently sold, you can definitely sell your information product.
