This brief article by Katherine Hansen provides some suggestions for doing this by using whatever natural talents or passions we already have and turning them into something profitable.

Whether you are looking to earn some extra money or if you are ready to tell your boss goodbye, you may already have what you need to start your own home business. Talents like decorating, gardening, writing, organizing, party and event planning, and cooking are among many skills that a lot of people either lack or simply do not have the time to do well, which means they are willing to pay people like you to do it for them. There are several ways that you can take those talents and make extra money working from home by turning them into a profitable business.

Here are just a few examples of the types of businesses you could start at home:

  1. Begin your own home or office design service
  2. Become a landscaper or gardener
  3. Start a small nursery with your prize winning plants
  4. Take your knack for organizing and help people get their homes and offices up to date
  5. Begin a party and event planning service to help people plan weddings, holiday parties, conferences, proms, etc.
  6. Offer your services and your great recipes to deliver homemade dinners ready to heat and serve, deliver lunches to job sites, or cater special events.

As you can see, there are many ways to take what you already love doing in your spare time and make extra money working from home by turning it into a successful business. If your hobby ends in the creation of something tangible you may decide to sell your work online. A variety of online store sites, such as GoEMerchant.com can help you turn your arts and crafts into a quick and easy online shopping experience.

Choose your own hours and prices for your services at a rate that is competitive for your area and skill so you are in control of how much you earn. Isn’t it time to do what you love?
