Consider Turning Your Hobby Into A Small Business

A lot of us have more free time on our hands due to Covid-19. Since the majority of the country continues to quarantine during this pandemic, people have turned to hobbies to pass the time. Have you ever considered turning your hobby into a small business? Your newfound talent can turn into a money-making business venture. Here is a list of four hobbies that can easily transition into a small business. 


With all the time we have been spending at home, people are trying their hands at do-it-yourself crafts and projects. If you enjoyed working with your hands, you could sell candles, jewelry, hair products, furniture, and other crafts. Handmade home décor, such as welcome signs and wreaths, are popping on all over local Facebook Markets and are increasing in demand with the holidays around the corner. This type of business is a great way to get your friends and family supporting your business before launching your business to a greater customer base. If you do not want to spend hours creating products, you could also sell DIY kits and provide classes.  


Photography has always been a viable business. You can use this skill in several different forms. Depending on your niche, you could take portraits, landscapes, or real estate photos. You could also sell your stock photos or prints on sites like Etsy. Another great idea is to create studio spaces and sell shooting time slots to other photographers. Photography is a great hobby that you could freelance your skills to or create your own Photography business. 


Another thriving business is blogging. With plenty of people still in quarantine, they are turning to digital content to consume. Just photography blogging has several niches like lifestyle, how-to, reviews, and tech. You could start a website, produce content for other publications, or blog on websites like Wix and WordPress. 


If you have spent your quarantine time creating new drinks or becoming an alcohol connoisseur, you want to try opening a beer brewing business. Beer brewing is another craze that is sweeping the nation. In 2018 alone, the brewery business worth grew to $12 million. More and more people are consuming craft beer than imports. You could either start a microbrewery at your home or open a brewpub/restaurant. Working in the brewery does involve regulations, so make sure you check out your state laws before beginning.
