Wouldn't you know I finally get to be the first to comment, and it's not the book giveaway :0) But I really do enjoy reading your website, especially since I am about to start my 'career' in a month or so and I want to be ready. I intend to turn two of my hobbies into income. 1) Making jewelry - I have actually made a little money from it already, but lack of time has me putting that on hold.

2) I'm very into fitness and since I practically live in aerobics classes, I am studying to become a certified instructor so I can teach classes.

I am starting on this now -- trying to sell some of my jewelry and illustrations. Not on a big scale, but hopefully they will help cover my 2006 Christmas expenses.

I like personal finance. I'm thinking of becoming a CFP, or something like that.

I love computers, but have yet to decide how to make money from them. I could go the route that everyone else is taking and design websites, but my design aesthetic suffers from a serious lack of color choice. I'm determined to find some way to make money from my hobby, I'm just not sure what it is yet.

I feel that you be doing what you love. You should be passionate about the work you do. If you love your job, you'll be excited to go to work. If you hate your job, why are you doing it?

I Love Doing WoodWorking projects. I can make anything if it is out of wood. I do make a little (very little) selling some of these products. You the horse race games, cornhole games for those of you that have heard of that, and anything else that I see out there that I may be able to make a buck at. Someday I will be able to supplement my income by doing this. So if anyone out there needs anything made out of wood let me know!!

Thanks, I love your site!!

I'm a CPA & I love learning about & applying personal finance advice in my life. I think I will pursue personal finance consulting in my spare time...

I read you site every day, I think it's great!

I love working and I am a teacher. I would love to make extra money helping parents help their kids. I just don't know how to get started.

Hi there everyone! I need help I LOVE singing and have been performing for like forever in choirs, school concerts and talent showes sucessfuly. I am trying soo hard to make a career out of it but I have one problem...I only sing acapella or buy background music from companies. Will people be likely to buy my music with this being said; what are my chances or should I just quit this passionate dream and move forward with something else? I do have all the equipment etc needed to start my business. Thank-you:)

Heather --

I've never known an artist who's been successful only singing to taped music, but that doesn't mean you can't earn some extra money from weddings, etc.

My favourite job is to sing.I love to sing.E-mail me if you would like to see one of my shows.

I love to play and teach guitar and I love to plan travel trips...five years ago I quit my government job as a graphic designer and moved to Mexico (San Miguel de Allende) with my partner, who is also a guitar player and teacher. We now perform locally and throughout western and central Mexico, and we host guitar instructional intensives where we combine daily instruction in classical and fingerstyle guitar with cultural activities. We also lead guided trips to Paracho, the center of guitar building in Mexico.

This is how I changed my life to one of passion and deadend job for me. The financial part is working out little by little. Each year it grows...

I love to sing, and I write song lyrics. I am presently working at a credit union, but all day long I dream of ways to turn my passion for music into a money making venture. I need help. There has got to be some way for me to get out of this dead end job and do what I know I was born to do.

I've always wanted to do this; make money not only at home, where there are different time tables and schedules(my own) , little transportation costs, and doing things i love to do-- drawing, painting, sewing, upholstery, gardening.. I have been able to save quite a bit of money over the years making christmas presents .It is also very exciting to find ways to aquire supplies outside of the retail stores! I've been making money doing all these things, but still have to work a full time job right now.
