Crazy Couponing Money Challenge — Day 6 Theme: Use your Talent!
Ok, this seems like a no brainer, right? If you’re good at something, you should make money doing it. Well, it’s not always that simple. Sometimes you can’t translate a hobby into a full time job. So, what’s the point of this post? Read on.
There are so many people who have great talent. Cooking, baking, sewing, writing, etc. But what translates to cash? EDUCATION!!!
Now, before you say, “I can’t go back to school”, I am not talking about spending endless amounts of time and money on formal education. Emphasis on the word FORMAL. There are so many ways to educate yourself and improve on your talents for free!
I love to do a lot of things. I’m an idea hoarder. I love makeup, hairstyling, writing, interior design, event planning, and more! (My brain is like a wedding magazine at all times.) I didn’t know how many resources there were to help me improve on my skills! I have learned how to do smoky eyes, make a centerpiece, write a blog, thread eyebrows and more. But with online resources, I’ve learned how to IMPROVE those things.
What is your passion? Is it baking? Watch a YouTube tutorial on how to make specific desserts or decorate. Do you love knitting? Join a Facebook page and connect with other knitters and learn new techniques. Like crafts? Read the newest DIY books. Love photography? Follow professional photographers on Instagram. Social media is a great way to connect, but it’s also an amazing educational resource.
At the end of the day, educate yourself on your passion and turn it into a career. Or a side hustle. Whatever floats your boat 😉
