You just do it. Want to direct, get a script, get actors, get a camera and film. It’s only as hard as you make it for yourself. Making money at something is not the same as doing something. You’ll never be successful if you are not passionate about it… and/or doing it.
How or where does one start to do what they want to do? They just start doing it. You need to learn how to do it. That right there is half the battle, GO JOE!!! If you want to sing, start singing. Want to act, start acting… Just do it. Make things happen by making things happen. What does not help is thinking about how you cannot do what you want to do. Don’t shut your brain off. Turn it on with possibilities. Think of what you want to do and take initiative. Want to write a book? Then start writing a book. It is only as hard as you make it out to be.
There are many avenues out there that allow you to do what you want to do. Now making money at it, that’s a different story. Money comes with Networking, Marketing, and Practice. Learning how to get your name out there (Your Product) and getting people interested in what you are doing. Over time you will find it becomes easier to sell what it is you do. Even a job works the same way. You put time and effort into and you start making really good money at your job.
Of course I will always be the first to say that your job, or doing what you want to do to make a living will never brig you wealth. Wealth vanishes. But that’s not what we are talking about at this moment. Maybe another time… So… How do you do what you want to do? Get up off your chair and start doing it. The more you do it, the better you will be at and the more you’ll shine. One day that hobby will turn into your life’s work! You get only one chance at this thing called life, so live it.
