Do you like or love spending your free time making something? Does your hobby include, cooking, scrap booking or woodworking? These are just some few things that you can turn into thriving business. Maybe that dream business of yours might be possible in 2018. Here are some examples of hobbies that would make great businesses.
Woodworking can be a highly profitable business to start from home, or you can even take it further and start a Ebay business or even open your own shop. If you make holiday decorations, or items for the front garden these can be a great way of making some money with your hobby. There are all types of woodworking crafts that can be made to sell through an online platform like Ebay, Esty, shopify, Bonanza, Zibbet,Icraft. Maybe you can draw plans for woodworking projects, this could be another idea for starting your own Ebay business. Take a few good pictures of the woodworking crafts you make and then put some up for auction on Ebay. See what type of response you get to your items. If you have a lot of people bidding on your crafts you know you found a winner. If not try another project.
Here is one of my favourite woodworking websites to give you some inspiration.
DIY queen from Alaska. I love Ana for making so much cute things out of wood.
Scrap booking is a huge business right now. If you know anyone that has spare scrap booking supplies left lying around, Ebay would be a great way to get rid of them.

Jewelry can be a great business to consider. Homemade jewelry has a big following. If you know how to make jewelry you could give this a try. Take some pictures of the items you make and post them on, facebook, instagram, pinterest and Ebay.
See if you get a big response. If you can make customized jewelry this would be a good thing. Someone might see a necklace you made and think how great it would be if it was made in their favorite colours.
Knitting, Quilting, or other type of Sewing
My 17 year old daughter just came back from my sisters from a two day break with her kids and while away she picked up knitting now she’s hocked. Do you like to knit baby blankets, or make baby clothes? Maybe you enjoy cross-stitching. These could all be turned into a successful business.
There are many people that do not have the know how or they simply do not have the time to sew. They are willing to pay others for their hard work and time. Making customized quilts and blankets could be a very profitable Ebay business for you to consider. Take pictures of some of the items you have made and then see what type of response you get on Ebay, facebook or instagram.
Maybe you know how to make cross-stitch patterns, or quilting patterns. Do you like to make quilting squares? Use your hobby to start you own lifestyle business in 2018 and all this can b done part-time or as a side business.
Stating an business from a hobby can seem like a scary thing, but take a shot. Take pictures of the things you make and post a few on facebook, instagram, pinterest and Ebay. See if the item would get enough attention to be worth making more. You will soon be on your way to having your hobby become an successful lifestyle business.
