Turn Your Hobby into a Business

Ideas for making money doing what you enjoy.

A hobby is an activity that usually done for enjoyment during your free time. Can you imagine getting paid for doing what you love? If you have been contemplating starting a business but don’t quite know where to start, maybe you should look at monetizing your hobby. Many will approach you with opportunities but one size does not fit all. Running your own business can be time-consuming and stressful at times. The worst thing you can do is start a business that you do not enjoy. That is why I am an advocate for turning your hobby into a business. So, let’s talk.

I took a little time to Google ‘popular hobbies’ and found opportunities to monetize them. Here is what I found and some ideas that immediately crossed my mind.

  1. Cooking
    1. You could offer cooking classes.
    2. Create a weekly Meal Planning service for busy professionals.
    3. Start a catering company.
  2. Gardening
    1. Start a horticulture business.
    2. Sell your plants and flowers at Farmer’s Markets and other events.
    3. Teach gardening classes.
  3. Photography
    1. Partner with an Event Planner to take photos of their clients
    2. Sell your photos online to companies like Dreamstime, Fotolio, and Shutterstock.
    3. Become a freelance photographer.

These are just a few ideas that came to mind. If this article inspired you, but you don’t know where to start, feel free to schedule a Brainstorming Session with us. We would be happy to help you come up with a plan and connect you with some resources that could get you started.
