❓ Can You Really Turn a Hobby Into a Career?
Last week, the New York Times published a profile of five solopreneurs, each of whom has successfully transformed their hobbies into lucrative side hustles during the pandemic. What do they have in common?
Their offerings are entirely unique, irreplicable, and the product of their own personal dreams and experiences (family recipes, childhood memories, home remedies, restless creativity).
They have learned to strategically leverage digital platforms (Instagram, Etsy) to expand their reach to as large an audience as possible.
