From sewing baby clothes to upcycling old thrift store furniture, more and more people are turning their hobbies into side businesses. And with the ever-increasing Etsy population as well as endless free social media platforms, launching a side business is easier than ever before.
You don’t even have to be an aggressive go-getter with a start-up and investors to make money on your own terms. You can market your product from the comfort of home with nothing more than your skill and a Facebook page.
But with the ease of getting into a side business also comes a very common challenge. Since it starts as a hobby, it’s often very tempting for people to call it a business but continue treating it like a hobby. That’s the main mistake that people with side businesses make!
So if you want to turn your hobby into a business, you must treat it like a business. That comes from recognizing and accepting the reality that in order for it to work, it has to make you money. Once you understand this, you can build your business in a way that will keep costs down, increase revenue and ultimately create a profit for you. It’s those profits that enable you to continue to do what you love to do and to share that love with the marketplace.
And that is good business!
