The "knowing" part isn't hard.. The "doing" part is..
How does one make money? You provide a service to someone else who either doesn't know how to do it for himself or doesn't want to spend the time to do it.. That's all.
The path of making money always goes through serving others... In other words, contribution.
Thus, you need to have skills and knowledge that others need and find valuable.
When you intersect the set of skills and knowledge above with what you find interesting, BINGO!
You don't have to quit your job if you enjoy it. You could jump to a better paying similar job, or start something part-time on the side.
The reality is that neither Steve nor anyone else could tell you exactly
what to do because it is all situation dependent. The best that could be done is personal coaching, but even then, you'd have to find someone successful in your situation.
Personal development gives you the outline only
. You need to think about how to apply this outline to your life on your own.
Successful people are the ones who understand their environment and know what they can bring to the table to support their environment. It is quite possible that you either don't know about your environment, or don't have much to bring to the table.
Now what? Think about what you like, and how it could serve others. Find out about what others need, and see if any of it interests you.. Go go go!
