Hobbies are anything we do that kills time while bringing pleasure to us. I once read that during our toddler years we are given crayons to draw and ‘be creative’ but once we reach middle and high school those are all replaced with the generic and sometimes creativity killing subjects. It is once we become adults that we are then asked to go back to our roots of creativity and hobbies to find something that inspires us.
For some this may have been easy to pick up right where they left off but for others it takes some soul searching and digging deep to find out about what we once loved. However, if you are in the group of people who knows what brings them joy and are ready to make a profit from it then this is for you. And if you are still searching maybe all you need is some inspiration.
Being part of the crowd and changing your hobbies to fit the greater majority is more or less like doing your 9-5 job. A hobby is something that is supposed to excite you so you should stay true to yourself and stick with it. However, if you do find a better implementation strategy that could help you develop your skill or your promotion then by all means switch it up accordingly.
Find where your audience is
There are plenty of Instagram accounts and Facebook pages that are promoting their new business ventures but just having a social presence is not enough. You have to choose the right social presence that suits you.
This can only be done by diving into the community that relates to your interest or finding a way to make people around you interested. People love creativity so if you are into art, digital art, making large dream catchers or just about anything that sparks your passion then you can make your product sell.
Creating a buzz
Just about anything can be sold if you make it sound like you are selling a dream. You just have to create an aesthetic that fits into what you are trying to reach. It is always advisable to be able to capture your content in an appealing and pleasing way, this might test out your photography skills a little too. Everyone loves a good aesthetic so if you are able to create and promote your product by giving a feeling of need then you already have one foot through the door.
Many are scared to start something on their own as they are scared to run the risk of failure. Not everyone is a born entrepreneur but that should not stop you. Join up with someone who shares common interest with you, someone who is willing to invest or simply someone who has a better know how in the areas you lack. This way you are provided with support, advice and guidance making yourself more confident.
