Have you ever been stuck in your office with piles of work and 100s of emails that you were not excited about dealing with, when suddenly, a seemingly hopeless question popped in your brain…
What would it be like to love what you do for a living so much that you hardly even think of it as work?
Can you really make money with a hobby?
A Life You Dream About
You could wake up when you wanted to. You could be a night owl and stay up late. You could get up early just because you want to. You could schedule your day exactly the way you want.
Imagine customers paying you because they like you. They like what you sell. They like your service. They like you.
Shark Tank Thought
I love watching Shark Tank. Mr. Wonderful is either making me mad with the way he talks to people or making me laugh. But he has on several occasions said, “You don’t have a business here, you have a hobby.”
Why can’t you have both?
Do You Love Your Life?
Most people I know would love to stop working where they work and do something else. Anything else!
Most people don’t because they have to pay their bills and would rather go with a sure (?) paycheck rather than take a risk.
If I am talking to you, consider this.
Keep working. But use the hours you have outside of work to change your life.
Wow, that’s not really helpful at all. Not what I wanted to hear.
Even though you know that’s it’s just that simple, do you do it? Are you productive on your dreams when you aren’t at work?
The Opposite of “Normal”
I recently met an incredible person. She is 28, currently an EMT/nanny, and is saving all she is earning to travel to New Zealand (with a one way ticket) just to explore. How awesome is that?
This is the kind of adventure that we dream of doing when we are young. Then, our reality (which we created ourselves through the choices we have made) yells at us – You can’t do that! You have to pay off that car! You have to pay your rent/mortgage! You have to send your kids to college! (insert your inner yelling here)
You have to live a normal life like everybody else…
Time to Start Dreaming Again
But what if you remembered what dreaming is like? Having those childlike wants and wishes again.
Creating a life where you follow your passion, your gifts, your skills. And more importantly, get paid.
One of the functions of Hobsess.com is to bring you all the possibilities of making money with your passion. Some you have heard of. Some may be new.
A Place to Start
But the point is to get you first to the place where you are passionate about something so much that you are willing to consider a change.
Start first by taking our Hobsessment™ a quiz that can match your personality with a list of hobbies.
More to Come
Check back often or even better, sign up for our Hob-e-Gram newsletter on this page and get the latest information on the video courses, eBooks, checklists, etc. coming this year to help you learn to make money from your passion.
Mr. Wonderful would definitely NOT approve of this website. And that’s OK.
