6 Hobbies You Can Turn Into A Side Hustle

6 Hobbies You Can Turn Into A Side Hustle

Many of us have favourite hobbies we like to participate in, but did you know that some of those hobbies can make you some serious cash?

Ever heard of Peter Dager or Saahil Arora? If not, these guys are reported to have made over $2m each as E-sport heroes. They have managed to make a living from being a professional gamer.

If you’re a talented gamer and are often accused of wasting your life away on video games, you could have the last laugh, there is some serious money to be made for something you already love doing. Sounds good huh?

Maybe you find yourself entertaining family and friends with your comic book drawings? One of my friends is such a talented artist and it really annoys me he refuses to use it.

Perhaps he’ll change his mind when I tell him that comic artists can earn staggering $1,600 ((£1,213) per month from their artwork.

Webcomics are quickly becoming the future of comic books as we move towards a paperless world. Although it might not bring in enough to quit the 9-5, it is still quite a healthy sum of money to earn as a side hustle.

You can even make money from some of the older more traditional hobbies such as baking. The newfound power of social media platforms has transformed our ability to side hustle some extra money without major setup costs.

If you are a master baker, platforms such as Instagram has given you all the marketing tools you need to get your wonderful creations out into the public eye.

If you’re a technophobe and the internet still makes you feel nervous you can still take you creations to farmers markets and also local retailers – homemade food has never been so fashionable.

These are just a few, so don’t assume these are the only money making hobbies out there. Check out the infographic below which details even more ways you can make money from your favourite pastimes.

As you can see there is great money out there if you’re willing to get out and hustle for it. I’m already making a steady, if not huge, income from this blog and a side hustle as virtual assistant within seven months, I had no experience whatsoever, so it can certainly be done!

 

If you already have a talent then you could be quids in if you turn it into a side hustle or even your full time job!

 

Have you ever made money from one of your hobbies?

    1. It can be highly lucrative in the long run. I’m nothing but a novice at the moment compared to some of these guys! Best of luck with your blog!

    1. Hi Mike, thanks for taking the time to read and comment. If you’re confident in front of a camera Vlogging is the way forward, especially to tap into the younger market. My friend is doing it very successfully, I’m a bit camera shy, don;t even like having my picture taken lol! Maybe one day I’ll pluck up the courage!

  1. It’s all about the side hustle! Thanks for sharing this graphic. I think it’s also important to highlight consulting and tutoring – since there are many more ways to make money offline! I often encourage people to build and sell their expertise. You can really get paid well if you add value as a consultant in any domain!

    1. This is very true, I used to be a consultant a few years back, troubleshooting poor performing call centres – very good point sir!
