Harness Your Passions
Running a bunch of niche web sites is all fine and dandy, until the day you stretch yourself too thin and burn out. One of the main motivators for many work-at-home entrepreneurs is the urge to do something they like, on their own time and without a boss hovering over their shoulder. It’s all about becoming self-sufficient and self-sustaining and doing something interesting.
One way to prevent burn out, or just plain boredom, is harnessing your passions. Establishing niche markets and doing mundane tasks like keyword research can quickly become old. But it’s much easier to do when you are involved in a niche market that involves something you’re interested in. Use your passions to direct your vision for your home business.
The best niche market is something you are keen on learning yourself, or something you already have an interest in. Have an interest in your niche will help drive you forward. I could easily make a site about any topic under the sun, but it is easier to maintain my interest in running the site if it’s something I already care about.
Grab a sheet of paper and write out five things you are passionate about. It could be anything, even non-tangible interests. Then, think of a niche that applies.

5. Knitting / How-To Knit for Money
Identifying a niche that is related to a natural passion of yours will make setting it up and maintaining it that much easier.
