15 tips to start earning money doing what you love, from people who have done it

Practically, every one of us has his or her hobby/hobbies. Some of us love to play sports, to paint, to sing, to dance, or making crafts. However, not all of us know how to make money from the things that we naturally love doing; with the right guidance, they can convert these very hobbies into a profitable and money making business.

So, if you have a hobby you are passionate about, you need to study and look for some tips on how you can monetise your passion.

The first thing you can probably do is to focus on a hobby you genuinely love pursuing. Don’t choose a hobby if your goal is just to make money from it but for the love of it. For example, if you love playing basketball, you could start giving coaching classes for kids and if you like writing, you could write some articles for a magazine, newspaper, or your own blog.

Do not force yourself into making money from hobbies. You will slowly, and not overnight, start making enough money to consider leaving your day job and to pursue only your money making hobby.

Creativity is an important key when making money from your hobby. If you don’t actually have a hobby, but want to make money from home, you just have to think of something you can do but others can’t. This way you are sure they will be willing to pay you for the craft, skill or services you have to offer.
