There is nothing better than making money while doing something you enjoy. Here are some hobbies that can make you money.
Bicycle Repair – Low start-up cost with minimal tools needed and easy to learn.
Computer Repair – You can always use Google if you run into a problem you cannot solve,
Seamstress – Repairing expensive clothing can be an excellent side business if you have the skills required.
Furniture Restorer – Excellent for people with a wood working hobby. You can obtain the supplies you need as you get projects.
Crafts Maker – This is one of the most common hobbies that I see people asking about for making extra money.
Website Design – This requires some background knowledge, and you can even use WordPress for some designs.
Custom Baking – It is surprising how much money you can make baking. I would recommend cup cakes as opposed to cakes.
Growing flowers – Sell directly to local florist. You can sell them cheaper than their suppliers can. I would ask around before I started this business.
Freelance Writing – You need some writing skill and expertise in an area helps immensely, but you enjoy writing some money is better than nothing.
Photography – You can sell stock photos on many websites. For example, some of the sites I get photos from have photos for sale for $1 each.
Cleaning Houses- Some people enjoy cleaning. I am not one of them, but if you are, there is good money to be made.
Tutoring – This is a good one for college students.
Lawn and Landscaping – This one may be harder to break into as I have seen many new people around my neighborhood offering these services since the economy declined.
Watch Repair – There are correspondence courses you can take to learn this trade. I remember paying $10 to have the battery replaced in a watch that I didn’t have the tools take apart. It took the guy 3 minutes.
If you do get into one of these hobbies or are already in one, it is a good idea to have a website. I recommend Host Gator to get you started because of their low prices. Use the coupon code RuleYourWalletBlog to receive $9.94 off of any package.
