You cannot make yourself to do something you are not passionate about. When business owners lose the passion they originally had for their business, not surprisingly, their sales will go down. It is time to figure out the next direction because you cannot force business.
Your customers and your audience are buying your passion, your expertise, your applied knowledge, and your service to them. They will know if you are losing interest. They are going to know, and things are going to change.
If you are at that crossroads, and it is becoming clear that your passion is no longer there, it is time to find a new direction. It is time to find something new you are passionate about, and adjust your business model accordingly.
