Money Making Hobbies

By: What Really Makes Money  11-11-2011

Three simple words could have the power to change your life completely..

Say goodbye to stress, goodbye to deadlines, goodbye to coming home from work every night tired and depressed.. This small, simple phrase could be the key that unlocks the life you’ve always dreamed of.

What phrase could mean that you could quit your job and spend all day doing the things you love to do?

One of the best and most rewarding ways of escaping your 8 to 5 job is to get paid to do what you like doing. It sounds like a pipedream, but you can make it work. Of course, it takes time and it takes some hard work initially.

You could be your own boss.. You’d be paid for doing what you’re good at and, best of all.. Your work wouldn’t seem like work at all.

Believe me, it’s possible.

A good friend of mine (who’s getting paid to do what he loves) will show you…

The first thing you need to do is establish the product and service elements of your hobby.

Most hobbies, but not all, have a product element (something you produce and can sell) and a service element (a service you can offer to people at a cost).

For example, let’s say your hobby is painting. You love to paint watercolours on the weekend and you love paint in a decorating sense and coming up with new interior designs. Any form of painting, you’re happy.

Here we have the two different saleable elements of the same hobby. You could sell your watercolours as art – a product – or you could sell your decorating skills as a service.

You can use both of these elements to build an income and escape your 8 to 5 job. But you need to keep them separate, as two different ventures.

So, set yourself a goal to identify your saleable hobby and create either one or both of your websites.

If you set yourself to it, that’s easily achievable. And you’ll have set up an outlet to start selling your product or service (or both).

Are you eating yourself sick

While fad diets can help you lose weight in the short term they’re often difficult to stick to and can weaken the health and functioning of your body’s organs, which can ultimately lead to illness. This can have a detrimental effect on your metabolism because restricting your calorie intake too drastically or skipping meals in the hope of losing weight slows your metabolic rate right down.
