Everyone has hobbies they indulge in to pass time, have fun or learn new skills. However, there are some hobbies that you can turn into a business and make money from. The first step in converting your hobby into a business is to choose the right hobby. Focus on hobbies that you are particularly good at or enjoy doing.

Here are 3 hobbies that can make you money:


You may be someone who loves taking a lot of pictures and is doing it well too. Photography is a skill that can be self-taught. There are several courses online but the best way to learn photography is to practice and take a lot of photos. Photographers are in demand throughout the year whether it was for birthdays, anniversaries, maternity photoshoots, or family portraits.

Sewing is a hobby that can easily be converted into a successful business because there are only a few people who know how to stitch clothes well. Set up a stitching corner in your house with your sewing machine and fabrics. After making a few clothes samples you can take pictures and upload them on an Instagram or Facebook page and then market your business.

Candle Making

If you love making candles and have been doing that for yourself as a hobby you can start selling your candles. If you haven’t started but want to make candles, there are so many tutorials on youtube on how to make your candles or you could attend a local candle-making class. Add scented oils to your candles and decorate them in unique ways to make them stand out.
