How to turn a hobby into a source of income ?

Probably most of us agree that hobbies make us feel as if time doesn’t exist. However, many people are afraid to share their works. Some worry about the criticism they may get, lack support from others or don’t believe that their activity could be monetized. If you’ve had any of these fears, a few simple steps might help you overcome them.

Focus on what you love

Imagine you just got a day off. What would you do? Focus on the activities you love and are already skilled at. Perhaps, that‘s drawing, creating music or even wood carving. Concentrate on what makes you happy and always keep learning. If you’re passionate about your work, chances are others will be too.
It’s wise to check whether someone else creates content similar to yours. Understanding whether you’ll have competition and who they are will help you succeed. Last but not least, answer two simple questions before you start:
·       Who are my fans?
·       What sets me apart?

Share your content and start monetizing it

Communicate on social media platforms regularly to get your work more visibility.
