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.
