I’m a writer. That is my hobby and my livelihood. If I couldn’t write I would go crazy because that is how I express myself in the world. I’ve learned how to turn my writing into a profitable side hustle. It took quite a few years to get off the ground as a freelance writer because, frankly it’s much easier to work in a corporate job as a technical writer. But I’ve learned how to find writing jobs and make money.
You can do the same thing. You don’t have to be a writer but you can use your talents and skills; those hobbies you love and begin making a little extra money from them. It can be done over the weekend when you have blocks of free time (meaning time away from your 9-5).
If you make jewelry or paint you can turn your creations into money making product.

I know of at least two places you can go to turn your art into t-shirts, mugs, keyring, and totebags. They include:
Sell Your Products in Art/Craft Marketplace
You may sell handmade items that can’t be put on a t-shirt or mug. That’s okay because you can still sell it online. There are several marketplaces that are just for artisans like you. Check out the following websites then sign up to begin selling:
Discover Other Ways to Make Money with Art
Maybe none of the ways above speak to you. You might have other ambitions or other artistic talents yet to be explored. If so you will want to check out my new guide for artists. It is called Side Hustles for the Artist Soul. It’s filled with 52 ways to make extra money on the side using your artistic talents. I’ve also included online business start-up tips to help you get the most out of the 52 ideas.
If this is something you want to do I encourage you to use this weekend to read the guide. By Monday you will have at least two ways to make extra money using your talents.
Side Hustles for the Artist Soul is only $9.99 and is available for immediate download.
