In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner, Neil Patel helps address the question, "What if your passion doesn't translate to making money?"

Neil Patel recommends taking the unconventional route when navigating a sometimes crowded career field -- or looking for opportunities where others may have not. If you are willing to get creative in how you sell your skills as well as pay attention to your industry's trends, then you will the results and money will come to you.

As Patel sees it, by having an entrepreneur mindset -- getting creative, seeing gaps, thinking outside of the bos -- is something that will take you head and shoulders over your immediate competition. Similarly, if you really want to turn your passion into a career, being willing to compromise and anticipate the needs of possible investora is one way to make a profit. An enterpreneur mindset can help serve any person, in any field, when its comes to making money. 

Finally, with any die-hard passion that you want to make more than a hobby, you must be willing to work hard.
