What do you do every day in your spare time? Most likely you spend it on the Internet, running errands, watching TV or a movie, and doing some sort of hobby.
Hobbies reflect our personality in ways that non-creative activities like TV simply do not. Hobbies are an expression of our passion for life, to express who we are, and often create something brand new. They are fulfilling personally and psychologically. They add balance and joy to our stressful lives.
How would you like that hobby to become an income builder? Wouldn't it be spend much more time on your hobbies and actually make money from them? That's what it means to have a hobby-based personal business.
These businesses are easy to start, cost next to nothing to begin, and often generate quick and steady profits. Why is this so? First, you probably already know a lot of people who do the same thing and who trust your opinion. If you tell somebody a product or service is good and worth buying, they'll probably buy it based on your opinion! That's called "instant customer loyalty" and it's something that other businesses don't have when they start up. Second, the investment necessary to get started is usually very small. You often have all the equipment or space required from your hobby already, so you will have no cost to build or buy them. Most businesses require at least 1 year of investment capital, a big loan secured by your house and personal credit, and won't make a profit for 6 months or more. A hobby-based business can be profitable in the very first week!
Some examples of income builder hobby businesses are: pet boarding/pet sitting (for animal lovers), repossessed auto buyer and seller, resume writer, personal chef, math tutor, freelance journalist, and many more! Virtually any passion or skill you have can be turned into an income builder business.
Why not get started today and start the new business that will be your extra income builder?
