08 Oct 09 Turn Your Hobby Into A Dream Job

Having a dream job is as simple as converting something you love doing into a venue for making money.  The real dream is turning your hobby into a real money making venture.  Imagine if you could be doing what you loved, on a daily basis, and get paid for the pleasure.  There’s practically nothing more rewarding than having a job like that.  So how can you make that dream become a tangible reality?

First, think about your hobbies.  You need a good practical one that you really enjoy.  If you enjoy cooking, something to do with the culinary field is a good bet.  Or if you like building projects, fixing up an old car, or even something like golfing, all of those could become viable business options.  Find one that you really enjoy, and that seems plausible, and roll with that idea.

From there you need to become an expert in your hobby, so that your opinion becomes really valuable.  If you like to cook, get some real experience, or better yet, go to school.  A culinary school is a fantastic way to sharpen your skills.  Plus the school will give you an invaluable education into how you could actually run a restaurant.  That could be a helpful skill in the long run, as it gives you different career options.  Go specific to your hobby, and look into educational options to make you an expert.

Before you give up your main source of income, try dipping your feet into the water of your hobby.  Again with cooking, try getting a job on a line at a restaurant, to really get a feel for the environment.  Plus this will provide you with the practice you need to excel.  When your skills are noticed at that level, you can really set yourself to succeed in your business venture.

From there you’ve got a good start, and a good idea of where to take your hobby driven career.  Use your education and your practice, and you’ve found a good starting ground to a job you’ll love.
