Many a professional writer, myself included, started as a self-taught hobbyist, got hooked and thought, “Why not get paid for this?”
That’s just one example of a passion that can translate into a money-making venture; there are countless others.
Some hobbies that begin as a labor of love may evolve into full-time careers, while others might provide supplemental income. Either way, if you can make some cash from an activity you enjoy, you’ve discovered a true win/win.
Having trouble coming up with potentially lucrative hobby ideas? Not to worry. In this week’s “Money” podcast, we’re going to discuss plenty of ideas to keep you entertained and maybe make you a little richer.
As usual, I share the broadcast booth with longtime financial journalist and fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit.
Sit back, relax and give it a listen!

Not familiar with podcasts?
A podcast is basically a radio show you can listen to anytime, either by downloading it to your smartphone or other device, or by listening online.
They’re totally free. They can be any length (ours are typically just under a half-hour), feature any number of people and cover any topic you can possibly think of. You can listen at home, in the car, while jogging or, if you’re like me, when riding your bike.
If you haven’t listened to a podcast yet, give it a try, then subscribe to ours. You’ll be glad you did!
