Turn Your Hobby Into a Side-Hustle or a Business

41 Ideas to go from hobby to income

"Do what you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."

How many times have you heard that, or a paraphrase of that quote, in your lifetime? We all know it to be true, and yet how many people do you know on a personal basis who don't fall into this category? How many of your friends live uninspired by their job or even career? You yourself may even dislike your job. While both situations can be draining, it can be even more beneficial to have a job that you abhor rather than one that you just find mundane. If the mundane job pays well enough, you may be convinced to never leave, while a job that you despise will at some point force you to make the tough decision: leave and do something that you enjoy.

However, before your situation and circumstances gets to the point of a financial or soulful ultimatum, forcing you to choose between money and some security or your sanity and happiness, you do have the opportunity to make some side money, freelance, or even start a budding business that will have you enthused to start your day and work with your customers.

Finding your passion can seem like it's a massive undertaking. But, it doesn't have to be! There are a few useful ways of thinking about the subject to get your creativity flowing so that you can focus, dial-in what you'd like to do, and then what it would look like to run your own business:

Write down things that you enjoy when you have free time to yourself.
It's not that you can't start a profession by watching Netflix all day, but ideally you are selecting hobbies and activities that you have experience in. An essential requirement though is to make sure that you're generally interested and passionate about what you persue. Make sure it's something that you actively want to improve at, something that drives you to get out of bed on a Monday morning.
Ask some of your friends what type of business that they would run if they could.
Your friends will likely give some funny answers as well as serious ones. This is all a process of discovery, at this point you're just looking for ideas. The answers may not be for you specifically, but it will start the wheels in motion in terms of looking at it a different way. And hey, you never know, you may end up finding a business partner that you both overlooked!

If you research any of your potential new business opportunities on the internet, you will inevitably find all kinds of information and media that will inform, guide, and prepare you for what it may be like on a daily basis. You are also going to find tons of articles and videos produced by experts or long-time professionals to make sure you know as much as you can about the craft portion of the business before you start.

After you've chosen one, a couple, or several interesting ideas for yourself, next you'll need to decide which "level" you'd like to pursue. Do you want to just make a little extra money on the weekends? Would you like to be fully self-sufficient as a freelancer or solopreneur? Or would you ultimately like to start a small business, growing into something bigger? Once you've decided on that and the direction that you'd like to move in, you can start to formulate how to put it all together. Imagine what your life would be like going to work, achieving your financial goals while experiencing a state of fulfillment. There will be hard work as well as new challenges that you'll face. But your happiness, future, and life are worth it.
