Convert Your Hobby into a profession and Make Money

If you go through the resumes of the millions of candidates all over the world you will find one interesting similarity in all of them. Whether doing a job or is aspiring for a job, all of them usually write some separate lines at the end of the resume stating their hobbies and other areas of interest. In many cases, the board members found, that while answering about the hobbies, the candidates feel free to answer and reflect their passionate interest about the same. Another important thing you can find by going through millions of resumes, that in almost all the cases, the candidates are opting for a profession which is way different from the one which they love as their hobbies. In fact, the profession is generally chosen on the basis of the academic background and on the degree of performance made in that area, as well as, on the basis of the experience that has been acquired by the candidate over the years in his/her professional field.


Hobby represents the areas of natural interest, love, and passion of a person and where the imagination and creativity come naturally. The experts in the areas of career counseling suggest that if a person can turn his hobby into his/her profession, it is always better for the career of the person as well as the industry to which his/her hobby belongs. Because in that case, every person will have a natural love for the profession and will also be passionate about it. The natural instinct comes into play much better in the case of a hobby and when turned into a profession, this natural instinct contributes to the creative thinking and new ideas within the industry which ultimately lifts the standard of the industry as well as the product and services it is offering to the society. 

There are many examples in the history that the persons who have converted their hobbies into profession have contributed significantly to the development of their field of profession. 

Take an example of Bill Gates, the man who change the course of history by incorporating Microsoft, the world’s largest software business, along with Paul Allen. He was a brilliant student and excelled in almost all the subjects in his school career. His parents wanted to make him a lawyer, but Gates followed his passion and started his career as an entrepreneur in the software development market, which ultimately changed the history of the software technology of the whole of the world. 

Steve Jobs, who is said to be one of the most intelligent geniuses in the history of mankind and who has gifted the world with i-Phone, was someone who struggled in school and could never be established himself as one of the brilliant grade point earners. The person followed his natural love and instinct which ultimately lifted the communication as well as the computer technology to a new height. You can have lots of such examples, who have contributed to the shaping of the modern human society and the scientifically advanced world just by changing their passion into a profession. Most of them had the capabilities of being successful in other professional fields also, but they chose their hobbies and their natural love as their profession and, even after facing a struggling start, they stick to those professions and has made possible this advanced human civilization.
Every profession requires some creative thinkers, who contribute to the advancement of the profession by inventing new technology or by providing new ideas and thoughts for the augmentation of the quality of products and services. The stalwarts like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs have done just the same thing and has developed the information and communication technology to new heights. The creative thinking is not possible unless you will follow the path in which your natural interest lies and where your passion finds its place. Your hobby is the unedited form of your passion and your natural ability and, if you can turn it into your profession, you could really be someone who can turn the trend of the industry to which your hobby relates.

To conclude I would like to cite the statements of a genius who has changed the world with his passion and has changed the lives of millions of people by his creative thinking and inventions. As told by Steve Jobs in 2005, in Stanford, in his book “How to Live Before You Die”, -- You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you will know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better as the years rolls on. So keep looking. Don’t settle.

If you match these words with your passion towards your hobby; you will find how important it is to turn your hobby and your passion into your profession, whatever may be the obstacles you have to face at the initial stage.
