Turn Your Hobby Into A Job

Turn Your Hobby Into A Job: anywhere, everywhere, always

 

Everyone can benefit from the joy that a hobby can bring. Be that anything that you are passionate about, or just something that can take your mind off of things for a little while, where you relax and forget for a little while your everyday problems. When you are a mum, kids are a job, and it can be wonderful to take on anything that can give you joy, and keep the stress away as much as is possible. Some of us might just need a good book and a glass of wine, but others might want to undertake an activity that requires more. Sometime these hobbies become a real passion, and if you choose to, you can actually make these hobbies more than that. You can in fact turn what you love into a job, If you are one of those mums here are some examples of hobbies that you can easily turn into a part-time job.

1) Gardening

Whether you enjoy working outside with flowers or crops or simply seeing what you can do if you possess the famous green thumb, gardening can be the perfect hobby turned job. You can apply for a part time job as a florist or use your green thumb to grown your own personal garden to work in and relax when the kids aren’t home. You could start growing your own products and actually know they are 100% organic. Plus when they are, you can teach your kids about health and nutrition in your own backyard. Another perfect way to turn gardening into a job is by looking at landscaping, a beautiful job that requires creativeness, and a love for nature and everything that is beautiful. If you are prepared to invest in a professional course, you can  check out some courses on landscaping here.

2) Photography

Photography can be a very interesting hobby to take on. Your children can be your first muses and lead to family portraits you are extra proud of or get you and your family outside to explore nature whilst taking gorgeous ‘National Geographic-style’ photographs. If you feel like taking on some extra work, a job helping a photographer will give you the insights of the photography/photo shoot life. Nowadays finding a job is quite an easy, and effective task, just check the job offers online, on this page for example you will find all jobs available in Blackpool.

3) Jewellery

Making jewellery can be both a peaceful hobby and a social one. You can make it in your down time or invite your friends to make beautiful pieces together. If you want to learn the tricks of the job, you could look for jewellers in need of a helping hand. If and once you are ready, you have many options to sell your pieces. You can sell them to friends as you start out and get feedback, sell your pieces online, via websites like Etsy or Cratejoy or boutiques, or even connect with and set up a booth at your local craft’s fair. Many shoppers love to support local jewellers and it is always lovely to see someone walking down the street wearing a piece from your newest collection.

Turning your everyday hobby into a job of course is not an easy task, you have to consider the time, and the effort, which to be honest since you already love what you are doing you won’t really see it as a burden, but instead it will probably give you the tenacity to succeed. Regardless of what it may be, turning your hobby into a job is a sure way to end up loving your job!
