We've all been there... when we had a great idea, or something we were passionate about, but that idea or passion never made it out of your mind because you didn't have a platform.
You see, platform matters a lot. You cannot do anything without a solid platform, a foundation, which you can build on.
Having a platform usually means having access to a group or community, having privileges which other people don't have as a result of your job or perhaps family background. That platform allowed people to spread their idea - or as Seth Godin calls it: Ideavirus.
Now, if you think about it, it doesn't sound right, does it? I mean, if someone doesn't have a platform, are they done? Is there absolutely no hope for those who have an idea they're passionate about, but don't know how to profit from it?
Let's take a look at someone who has built a platform around the idea, and now the idea and the platform are one.
Erica Zidel founded SittingAround.com, a website that makes it easy to create, manage, and grow a babysitting cooperative. She was featured as one of Obama Administration's "Champions of Change".
David Karp founded Tumblr in 2006 because he had been intrigued by the idea of creating a microblogging platform. His company recently got acquired by Yahoo! for over 1 Billion Dollars. Yes, you read that right. That's billion with a "B".
That's just two examples...
Every day, as we sit there and pray that we don't get fired or laid off, there are people turning their ideas into platforms, beating the economy at its own game, and generating millions of dollars a year for themselves.
That's what we set out to do at the P3 Network. P3 stands for Passion. Platform. Profit. and we just have one mission: To help you make money doing things you love, know and enjoy.
