Make money while doing your Hobbies

Do you know that you can make money and have fun at the same time? Are you wondering how? It is very simple. All of us have their own specialties, experience, hobbies or things that you like most which you can turn into a profitable business idea. Isn’t it great, to know that we can make money out of your hobbies? 

Turn your hobbies into profit

If you are a health conscious person and spending lots of time in the gym to work out, you can start your own business by opening a fitness center. But if you don't have that enough money to open up a fitness center, you can also try teaching or become a personal trainer to raise fund for your future business. You can also put up a store for health food supplements, which is now a big business and it grows fast. 

If you are an online gamer enthusiast or computer freak, you can try opening a computer shop. You can also try opening a store for computer accessories like keyboards, mouse, headset, video camera and etc., you can also start selling your goods online with a small capital and all you have to do is to socialize with the people in any social network that you like most.

There are a lot of hobbies that you can convert into a money making idea like photography, paintings, cooking, gardening, sports or writing. Just use your imagination and be creative if you want to succeed in your business. Now, there is no way you can quit in your business because you are doing what you want. But don’t just do what you want; you must love what you do.

Story of Pedro, Cooking hobby
I want to share with you a story that I heard when I was in college, a very inspiring story. It is a story of a guy named Pedro. Pedro loves to cook and the taste of his dishes is really awesome. Unfortunately, Pedro didn’t have a chance to go to school due to poverty. In other words Pedro can’t read and write. One day Pedro applied for a job as a garbage collector. During the interview, Pedro is given an application form to be filled up. He approaches the interviewer and said “Sir, I am very sorry but I don’t know how to read and write. I can’t fill up this form, can you please help me!” the interviewer got disappointed and said “I’m sorry Pedro; you are not qualified to be a garbage collector.” 

Pedro got home sad and starts thinking of ways to earn money, until he decided to make use of his talent in cooking and put up a banquet. The people were surprised and love Pedro’s delicious dishes, they invited their friends and relative to try to eat at Pedro’s Banquet. The banquet turns into a big franchise business and Pedro becomes a millionaire.  Pedro becomes famous and a lot of people got inspired of his success “A guy who can’t even write nor read became a millionaire.” He was set up for an interview for a business show. The reporter asks Pedro “You became a millionaire even you can’t read and write, what more if you can read and write?” Pedro answered back “If I can read and write, I am now a garbage collector.”
So, guys make use of your god given talent. Whatever business you are into now, be thankful and work hard to get your dreams.
